Common Era - Random Topics
Ironically, the first place I ever saw 'B.C.E.' 'A.C.E.' -Before the Common Era/ After the Common Era was in a divinity department when I was in college! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:24 pm

Atheism - Random Topics
Everyone can believe [or not believe] whatever they want. For me, it boils down to being more willing to risk saying 'oh well' if it turns out that there's nothing after this life than to risk having to say 'uh-oh!' if there IS an afterlife! Oh, and prayer has gotten me through a LOT so I don't see how something nonexistant could answer much less hear my prayers. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:16 pm

Best Buy - Random Topics
Anyone else seen these holiday ads in which this woman with a major chip on her shoulder assaults Santa who does nothing more than say 'ho ho ho'? It might have helped had Santa acted obnoxious or bullying but this one seemed genuinely friendly as though he could have fit right into "Miracle of 34th Street" so what was her problem and why are we [the buying public] supposed to cheer for her and jeer at Santa? And I say this as someone who thinks the Christmas season has quite a bit of Santa Saturation! Oh well, I wasn't going to buy anything from Best Buy anyway. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 16, 2011, 12:12 pm

Super Dave - TV Shows
The show wasn't all that great but I thought it was interesting that he was actually the brother of Albert Brooks- and their original surname was EINSTEIN! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2011, 12:47 pm

Vlad The Impaler - Celebrities
Just so folks know- he got the name of 'the Impaler' for how he sometimes executed folks and it wasn't through the chest. The method's not something that most folks would want to have recreated for dramatic purposes but let's put it this way, it could have been the origin of the "Happy Days" catchphrase 'sit on it'! Yeah, truth's not only stranger but it can at times be NASTIER than fiction. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 15, 2011, 12:29 pm

Laverne & Shirley in the Army - TV Shows
JayD, So which of them got turned into a talking pig? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 4:13 pm

Texting - Random Topics
No, DolFan, You are NOT the last holdout on the planet. I'm not about to get one of those gizmos that make it look like one's getting spastic on a cigarette case. Scary thing is that I know that more and employers and even colleges are REQUIRING their employees and students use those things. And I recently got a flu shot and they asked me if I wanted to sign up to get my medical stuff texted to me. WHY are employers, medical and educational authorities trying to push having very private info sent through thin air which could easily be intercepted by hackers? Only if my job ever makes it compulsory, will I break down and get one. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 4:02 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
DolFan, Segways are similiar to hoverboards- though they stay on the ground and cost most folks several months' rent. Still, I agree and would prefer hoverboard to Twitter,too! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 3:49 pm

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
DolFan, Thanks- of course if that list was accurate it would describe the 'hottest celeb woman in our lifetimes'. To say Jennifer Aniston [or any contemporary woman] is the hottest of ALL time shows that the participants aren't making even the slightest attempt to consider any history going back more than a few decades. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:53 pm

Texting - Random Topics
I'd agree excecpt that the only grunts to be made will be when folks wreck their cars while texting when they should have both eyes on the road and both hands free for the steering wheel and controls. Even those folks who text off the road look like they're playing with cigarette cases! Hello, humanity survived how many millions of years without these gadgets so why can't folks now endure even ten minutes without 'em? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:48 pm

Brady Kids - TV Shows
I agree in retrospect, John. However; being that this show premiered shortly after the time of Nixon's Visit to the People's Republic of China in 1972 I had a fascination with seeing whatever traditional Chinese people, places and things that had somehow survived the ravages of the Cultural Revolution. Hence; the idea of pandas living in the Brady household intrigued me enough to tune in but I don't think I made it through even one full cartoon episode because they [and the rest of the cast] were BORING! I never realized how much the show needed the parents and Alice until I saw this adult-free version. LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:44 pm

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
I read that she got voted 'Hottest Woman of All Time'- excuse me but no! I have nothing against her but can anyone imagine her face launching 1000 ships?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 10, 2011, 5:33 pm

New Coke - Random Topics
Travoltron, For a brief time, one COULD get both New Coke and Classic Coke. As to why they came up with this? Well, I believe that the original patent gave the company exclusive rights to the formula for 100 years and they took the original Coca Cola off the shelves and distributed the New Coke around the 99 year anniversary so let's just say it wouldn't totally surprise me if this turned out to have been a strategy to keep from losing the formula. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 10, 2011, 4:48 pm

True Grit - Movie Series
Oops! I meant to say Matt Damon instead of Jude Law! Don't know why I got them confused. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 1:05 pm

True Grit - Movie Series
Why the Oscars didn't give ANY Oscars to the participants of the 2010 version, I'll never understand. Jeff Bridges and Jude Law each gave one of the best performances of their respective careers and that Hallie Steinfeld did an incredible job nailing Mattie a shrewd and determined 19th century US frontier girl in quixotic circumstance for her first movie role! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 1:03 pm

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
RIP Harry Morgan. Colonel Potter was easily my fave character on this show. Although I admit that I was sad seeing Henry become fish food [ I recall my mother crying when we saw it happen in '75], it was a relief to see someone show up who actually was able to corral ALL the Swamp Rats instead of letting Hawk and Ferret Face run amok and have their contests nonstop. Also, I liked how Potter was tough+ firm yet always fair and not without a sense of humor- just was needed for the sake of the wounded! Moreover, it was kind of ironic how he was able to command all these folks noticably taller than he! Of course, Mr. Morgan had had a career that went all the way back to the 1940's even playing a teenaged soda jerk in a movie that starred big bandleader Glenn Miller shortly before his own still mysterious death. 96 years is quite an accomplishment to reach and for that and his work, I salute him! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 8, 2011, 12:50 pm

Year at the Top, A - TV Shows
Seeing this, who would have predicted Paul Schafer would now be famous while Greg Evigan would be obscure? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 7:15 pm

France - Random Topics
OK, I apologize to those French citizens who do NOT consider Napoleon a hero. It was unfair of me to forget about you all. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 6:59 pm

Billy Joel - Music Groups
John, I agree it's not one of his best songs. However; the fact that he turned down a seven-figure sum for the publication of his nearly-completed autobiography not too long after his daughter went through some very tough times, DEFINITELY showed that his heart was in the right place. Not that many celebs care enough about their kids to turn down compensated publicity for their sakes but that's what he seems to have done and, if that's the case, I admire him for having that integrity. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 4, 2011, 6:52 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks (Live action/CGI film) - Movie Series
OK, Robert. I won't tell ya! Sounds like something to avoid like plutonium! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 3, 2011, 4:50 pm
