What's on your mind?
NewDave: I didn't know goats cold get Covid. Mind you, I've heard other pets can so I suppose goats can too, and baby ones are probably more vulnerable. Jan 18, 2021 19:06:59 GMT *
walkingdecay: The Raiders thing is actually based on a fundamental misunderstanding of how stories can function. Without Indy to represent goodness, as well as to participate and observe, would there be a story at all? Jan 19, 2021 8:28:31 GMT *
NewDave: There'd be a story and the outcome would be the same. Wouldn't make much of a movie though. Amy's point is that Indy makes no difference to the outcome. Jan 19, 2021 8:32:17 GMT *
walkingdecay: In a similar way, the direction of the narrative and burden of meaning of The Great Gatsby depends requires the presence of Nick Carraway. So pfft! to the writers of that massively overrated show. Pfft! I say! Jan 19, 2021 8:39:35 GMT
martinrowe: pfft :) - I'm going to increase my vocabulary and steal that. Jan 19, 2021 10:39:48 GMT *
scorpiodog: I believe etymology for the French "Pah!" is given as the Anglo Saxon "Pfft!". As with so many cover songs, the original is far superior, and yet so rarely heard. I think we should start a "Resurrection Of 'Pfft!' Enterprise". Or is that just old rope? Jan 19, 2021 11:28:23 GMT
martinrowe: I like the idea. Should we get WalkingDecay's permission? Jan 19, 2021 12:12:23 GMT
NewDave: Would a "Resurrection of 'Pfft!' Enterprise" be part of the original Shatner/Nimoy timeline, the new Pine/Quinto timeline or a part of the Enterprise prequel series? Jan 19, 2021 12:24:50 GMT *
scorpiodog: Whichever series "The Wrath Of Pfft!" is in, I guess. That's Shatner, Nimoy I believe. Jan 19, 2021 15:23:52 GMT
scorpiodog: Anything You Khan Do I Khan Do Better was the big musical number, I seem to remember. Jan 19, 2021 15:25:11 GMT
NewDave: Set phasers to pfft. Jan 19, 2021 16:14:22 GMT
NewDave: Something sweet to start off the day Jan 20, 2021 9:06:32 GMT
NewDave: We've got a half ton of manure and a turboprop. Any suggestions? Jan 23, 2021 8:19:11 GMT
Onechordtrick: @newdave Mr Fan, let me introduce you to.... Jan 24, 2021 7:58:25 GMT
NewDave: IT'S SNOWING!!!!! :snow: YAY!!! Jan 24, 2021 11:08:28 GMT
Phil Taylor: @newdave it's not here 😟 Jan 24, 2021 14:49:22 GMT
NewDave: Might be a blessing in disguise . But it sure does make these grim grey streets look purty. Jan 24, 2021 16:04:32 GMT *
otis1960: You don’t know grim darn sarrfff Jan 25, 2021 0:11:24 GMT
scorpiodog: Loada pansies we are. Have you Northerners started wearing your big coats yet? Jan 25, 2021 11:56:02 GMT
NewDave: I've got my big socks on. And hot chocolate. Happy as a pig in the good stuff, me. Jan 25, 2021 14:48:03 GMT
