To quote a good friend of mine years ago when I was opining about this very thing, how the definition of beauty had changed significantly throughout the centuries... he replied "Well, no matter what body type/shape was seen to be ideal, one thing has always been (and probably always will be) considered beautiful... youth"

Did anyone else have trouble reading the captions? I had a devil of a time figuring out WTF it was saying! Come on, people! IF you really want us to read what you are saying then make it visible!

Thank You!!!! I absolutely ADORED this when I was a kid! Growing up in Canada, we saw all kinds of these NFB (Nat'l Film Board) cartoons. The one of "The Old Lady Who Swallowed The Fly" is particularly brilliant. Our school would show movies and cartoons in the music room on rain/snow lunch hours, and "The Old Lady" was always a big hit. One teacher would always leave the projector lamp on when he rewound the film reel for next viewing, and believe me: watching it backwards at high speed would reduce the entire roomful of kids - and teachers - to gasping, side-clutching laughter.

Okay, I'll share one. I had an odd dream 2 nights ago about Steve Martin in Korea - not sure which one - and he and some local friends went to a restaurant. They ordered a dozen griztels with rice. Yeah, it's kind of pronounced like gristle but it's griz-tell. The griztels sort of looked like chopped up chicken legs and thighs but they weren't really recognizable since portions of them all had long black hairs on the meat. If you ordered a dozen griztels you got a bonus called a "cherry" which was a big deal with Martin's friends. It was another piece of meat but no one knew what kind of meat it was so it was a surprise which the Koreans apparently called a surprise a "cherry". Naturally, Steve Martin didn't want to eat any of it and I woke up with a bad taste in my mouth.

"I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country." Spoken by the title character in Patton, the movie.

"Which nation contributed the most to the defeat of Germany?" and "Which nation suffered the highest number of casualties against Germany?" are two different questions.

But, yes: more than any other nation, the USSR was responsible for bleeding Germany dry.

Sure, you can fly at supersonic speeds. But you’ll freeze.

Actually because the air will warm up significantly as it crosses the supersonic shock wave, you might cook not freeze. It all depends on ambient conditions and velocity.

When I was teaching I'd do a bit on bad science in the movies and TV. Like the Incredible Shrinking Man would become the incredibly stupid man and the Invisible Man would be blind. The students had fun with it.

I, for one, would love it if someone found a copy of "San Quentin Blues". On another note, look how young the boys look (especially baby-faced Moe) in "Hello Pop".

I started out as a dog person, but we took in a cat who was going to be put to sleep. I fell in love with him, because he was so dog-like. I went on to love all cats, but I still love dogs. So when it comes to animals, I am totally bi.

My question is: Do I have to be crazy to be a cat person or does being a cat person make me crazy? As much as I love my kitties, they do drive me crazy sometimes!
