Aye, I see where you're coming from, but I don't think that the "better to be hanged for a sheep than a lamb" mentality isn't usually a factor when it comes to mass murder. You've either got cold-hearted terrorists like Breivik, or nut-cases who've snapped and probably want to die on the scene, both of whom don't really care about the prison aspect afterwards.

The number of people on Twitter asking who Neil Armstrong is at the moment. . . .

Dark Knight Rises was alright, I thought that it was less French Revolution and more Bolshevik coup (from my reading of the events of the latter, and my lack of reading about the former), which riled me a bit as Nolan is just continuing to out himself as a right-wing nut. :P

Now, I'd watch the hell out of a super-hero movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt however. . . .

I second that notion.

Storming the prison was a bit french revolution like (they still have the storming of the prison the bastille as their national holiday).

I saw the expendables 2 yesterday. It was very cheesy and completely over the top. In other words it's exactly what you would expect. I liked it better than the first one. Also Van Damme was awesome!

I wouldn't call him awesome. :P

I completely expected him (to go along with the rest of the cheese) to do his 'signature' move (he didn't).

Also, best cheesy line of the movie goes to "After five days of agonizing pain, it died."

He did the karate kick thingy, what else do you consider his 'signature' move? I might be a bit biased about his awesomness considering he is a compatriot.

YouTube is blocked at work, so I hope that worked right.

Edit: Just to clarify, I did like the movie. :wink: They were smart enough to make fun of the whole thing throughout.

Why not post the video from Vsauce or minutephysics? (for the tl;dr crowd, i.e. me)

Edit: Never mind, read the article (and the rest on that site, hilarious, and different than what I expected.

Where does that fall on the casual-formal axis of fashion?

The whole world that lady do an awful job trying to play air guitar to Queen in the closing ceremony, and we can't unsee it. I'm not sure what Romney said about the games, but it's entirely likely that that moment justified it.

The Closing Ceremony was a fetid crock of shit. Please, on behalf of my country, ignore it and pretend it never happened. Here are some words somebody wrote which sum up my feelings pretty well.



Also; two wrongs don't make a right. There were plenty of Olympic moments to be proud of, and the closing ceremony - as much as it tried - can't cancel them all out.
