Are you talking about the two near the right edge, about 2/3 of the way up? Because I'd say to heck with those, what's that clump right on the bo...

If it's still in your browser, go back to it and paste the section of the url that says this in it: ondeck_movie_id=45092 Except that it will have your movie id. Movies are given two IDs. One of them seems to be one given during the scanning process and has some meaning to it (like V1 = Version 1, ...

It seems to me, though, that given the exceedingly porous nature of the aerogel, what you'd get from an impact, at a very fine level, would be lots of little clumps of silica smashed and melted, but very little of that energy transferred as stress to silica that remains more or less in place (pardon...

Would you rather they just cut you off when they can't find any new movies for you to view? That's the logical consequence of the idea of not showing you movies you've already seen.

Shemp is... subtle. I wasn't too sure about him for a while myself. But I kept my eye out for one that showed him off to best effect, which mostly means a rather plain background that goes very unfocussed. So, here you go : http://www.ghiapet.homeip.net/images/Shemp.jpg Best bet is to view the movie...

- To geckzila : Those same movies can be colaboration movies. And I dont think that project designers would make system send SAME movies to SAME people - that's just makes no sense! It does make sense if it greatly simplifies the record keeping & storage requirements, and somewhat simplifies the PH...

Do they make the Delirium Tremens there themselves? The pink elephant suggests it, and of course the name, and I see it in their list of beers. I've had that here a few times, good (& powerful!) stuff.

I'll trade you some MGD for some Strongbow! Yep, Miller's here. There are plenty of American beers I like better, though, let alone the German stuff. But I suppose it's OK for a big-brewery beer.
