Re: How or why did you pick your avatar

One of the few lego minifigs I kept after selling my lego collection in 2004. In hindsight it was a massive mistake, even if it sold for 800$.... I miss my Airport Shuttle (set no.6399) and other train stuff.

Also I have not changed my avatar since registering.

Re: After 83 years, METROPOLIS!... IS!...

Analog film is suprisingly high-def in visual information. (Although the old film WILL be more grainy than the later stuff). You always lose visual data when converting something to digital. More when converting to DVD format, less when using Blue-ray. I don't really see the problem therefor. This....

Re: the SINGLE most manliest movie ever

I hope its as ridiculous as JOHN RAMBO.

However, "The Big Damn Book Of Sheer Manliness" states that "SPARTICUS" with Kirk Douglas is the Manliest movie of all time.

Re: Oh the Horrors!

I remember during the summer of 03 I decided that I would see every Nightmare on Elm st and every Friday the 13th sequentially. There were some gaps, but I did see them all within the timespan of 2ish weeks. From what I remember: Nightmare on Elm st 1: Great, and managed to pull off a serious horror...

That's only a quarter of your lives! And you'll have been pursuing romance for less than half of that. You've all probably got 6 decade...

Damn you unexpected thought loops/panic attacks that suddenly distract from paying attention in class.... Im paying for this shit with my own money and I cant even focus ugh.
