    No Quidditch in the next Harry Potter movie?!

    Maybe I just have a low opinion of famous people in general, but it seems like too many of them have no qualms about behaving badly in public. ;) Seriously, though...perhaps we can continue this discussion in the Study? Now back to Pothead...I mean Potter...

    No Quidditch in the next Harry Potter movie?!

    I actually have been rethinking this whole "drinking age" issue, which is why I started this thread in the Study: http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39455 Drew Barrymore was drinking alcohol and using cocaine at age nine - and ended up in rehab by her early teens. River Phoenix...

    Barcode Tattoos?

    If I remember correctly, the machines gave the humans barcode tattoos in "The Terminator". Now why would someone want their SSN tattooed? "Hello...steal my identity, please!" :p

    Weird Hang Ups and Quirks AKA: Monkees & More

    But that is part of the charm of cats. They *do* rule the house - at least mine do. ;) I have the best kitties. They greet me at the door when I come home, and follow me around the house. They let me grab them (though they don't like it), play a *bit* roughly, and let me pet their stomachs...

    Joke needed.

    You'll have to go to the AD forum for the dirtier jokes. ;) There are some good ones in the Comedy Cafe forum too.

    "Carryable" Daggers

    If I'm not mistaken, each state has its own laws about carrying blades. And some of these laws look a *little* convoluted: http://www.thebladeshop.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=17 http://www.thefiringline.com/library/blades/knifelaws.html http://www.donath.org/Rants/StateKnifeLaws/

    Did anyone watch "Fight Science" on the Nat'l Geographic Channel?

    I probably would've screamed all kinds of stuff at the television set, if I watched this special... :cuss:

    Did anyone watch "Fight Science" on the Nat'l Geographic Channel?

    I'm guessing they couldn't find any JSA, KSA, WMA, etc practioners for the weapons portion of the special? It also irks me how some think that having a black belt in TKD - or some other empty-hand style - means they are also a "weapons expert".

    Welcome to MT! :wavey: Hope you enjoy the boards. And yes, it isn't a good idea to post email addys or phone numbers on a public forum. Just FYI.

    ouch

    Those who molest and/or kill children are in the bottom of the prison feeding chain. It wouldn't surprise me if this "distant relative" eventually administers his own brand of justice.

    Another school shooting... damn it....

    They were? Because I haven't seen those procedures followed in any of the public schools I've visited. The high schools have metal detectors, but they don't pick up *every* single kind of weapon.

    Underage drinking and minimum age laws

    Two of my underaged cousins (one is 19, and the other is 17) were drinking beer at my dad's 60th birthday party - in full view of their parents. Their dad even helped them open beer bottles. I teased them relentlessly for drinking beer in front of their parents. Looking back at their...

    Underage drinking and minimum age laws

    Considering how the American culture views and uses alcohol, I do see the rationale behind the drinking laws. However, they need to be enforced consistently, because... Many college campuses are surrounded by restaurant/bars and liquor stores - even though the majority of the undergrad...

    Underage drinking and minimum age laws

    That's the reason why I put emphasis on the word *responsible*. Lord knows there are many adults who don't know how to drink responsibly; it isn't just a "underage drinking" problem. And yes, the "illegalness" of the act undoubtedly appeals to many young people. I don't have the time to look...

    Underage drinking and minimum age laws

    The drinking age in the U.S. is currently 21. It is 18 in Canada and in the U.K. Do you think setting a minimum age for drinking is effective or necessary, especially considering the prevalence of underage drinking? If you do not feel these laws are necessary, at what age do you think...

    No Quidditch in the next Harry Potter movie?!

    'Tis the unfortunate price of fame. Look at what happened to Drew Barrymore after E.T. Wasn't she in rehab when she was Ms. Watson's age?

    No Quidditch in the next Harry Potter movie?!

    The drinking age in the UK is 18. Emma Watson also got "virtually" slapped for her boozing ways: http://movies.go.com/slapoftheday?columnid=760726 Not a good example for her young fans, IMHO.
