Dunno who won, but [In reply to] Can't Post

we were all kept busy for a time. Yet we still have quite a lot of those times to go while waiting for the film! What shall we argue about next?

But every word you say today
Gets twisted 'round some other way

How about this [In reply to] Can't Post

Is Rhode Island a road or an island?

Discuss.

Obviously it would be called Purse Factor, and I'd by a judge.

Lolz [In reply to] Can't Post

i didnt think you would. i dont really have much opinion on her as i dont watch x factor at all so all i have really heard of her was from Russel Howard's Good News tv show on BBC 3.

If you know what video she has been in, his comedy about her is very funny Tongue



As for the debate in this thread - dont think it was too heated, some in the past were more so. All i can say is, cant wait for the discussion on tv spot 8, haha.

A rhoad. [In reply to] Can't Post

One hour-long interstate! Half of which is through heavily congested built-up area, the other half through empty countryside. (And there's an exit for Wyoming. Seriously.)

And Rhode Island itself is called Aquidneck Island on maps, so if you're looking for the island, you can't find it...

Wait, how do we know this? [In reply to] Can't Post

The only mention I've seen of the toilet is in the Official Movie Guide, and I'm pretty sure Barry Humphries's entire interview is very tongue-in-cheek.

I completely agree Bombadil! [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I was hesitant myself to post about it, originally... [In reply to] Can't Post

But others who have the book seem to agree that there must be a grain of truth in it for it to be published in an official guide!

Likewise about the GK singing - Humphries makes a joke of it but the author goes to the trouble of citing Humphries' singing credentials, and mention of the GK singing also appears in further detail in the Visual Companion.

I guess we'll find out eventually!

PLANTATIONS. It is made up of many islands ,the largest of which is Aquidneck island ,also known as Rhode island, which is where the name of the state came from. It also has many roads ,the interstate 95, 195 and 85 being significant ones. Hopt that helped Tongue

lol. I was on the receiving end of his gracious apathy when I first got here. [In reply to] Can't Post

I only said that what Shelob's Appetite said about not caring about other's opinion could be said by other towards his. Maybe I was inelegant in doing so but I didn't use abusive language, I didn't swear, I stated my opinion on somebody else's opinion. It just angers me when people have an opinion and they are simply dismissed, I live in a democratic country and in my country we have something called freedom of speech. I was offended myself by Shelob's Appetite's post for dismissing someone's opinion, but as we both know, he won't have a word said tohim as he is a revered poster here and I am just a greenhorn.

Dwarves in the book [In reply to] Can't Post

are like the keystone cops. So much for the idealized, noble, proud ancient race of dwarves that some think PJ is somehow changing and ruining. I'd rather have them be funny than total bufoons.

I actually hope PJ portrays them as somewhat more....capable.
