Really, FBC, you never fail to amaze me. The imagery is great. I would love to see the picture that inspired the story.
-Stop using Jesus as an excuse for being a narrow minded bigot.
-Music was her life, the lyrics were her story.
-Be careful what you say, it may remind me of a song that needs to be sung.
-GOT JESUS? I thought you had him....shit!
-Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths?
-My pit bull is my co-pilot.
-To err is human; to ARRGGHHH is pirate!
-Why do we kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?
-Well behaved women rarely make history.
-Laughter: When a smile has an orgasm
-I'm not so good at the advice; can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

I'll see if I can hunt it down. It's been years, so I don't know if it even exists anymore.

Aright, I'm done.

Ya, it had none of that.

Jon should've pwned.

Davos supposedly died, though.

I mean, did the Freys nail someone else's head and hands to a post, or what?

DWD should be out in a couple of months, if he actually finishes.

Assuming it gets written before GRRM dies. He's not young, he's probably only got about 20 or 30 years left.


If the guy doesn't finish, I will break something.


Sounds like not til April '09 at this point.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Just found a video clip which would appeal to many who liked the book Rebecca.

Psst! That means you, Cap!

It's on television at the moment, every Wednesday night, 9:30.

My favourite sketch of the last few episodes I have seen: (not counting Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, who is in a level of his own)

I remember it being a good read , I think Kubrick did a fine job with it , although I would love to see it remade by a grittier director .

That's probably one of the funniest sketches in the history of sketches. I quite randomly find myslef shouting out:

Cheddar Status, Four days to Sell by Date...Petril, Four, Petril Four...

Fool's Fate by Robin Hobb. Last book of the 2nd trilogy.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Ya well so did Catelyn, Gregor, Sandor, Bran, Rikon, Sandor, Ramsay, and Beric. Meanwhile, Pate is supposedly still alive.

"Supposedly" means jack in these books :o
