    I have never seen a movie with Christopher Lee as Holmes. But, back when I was reading the Doyle books, I was picturing him as Holmes. I was picturing James Mason as Watson, having seen "Murder by...
  2. I agree with you in principal but the problem is...

    I agree with you in principal but the problem is one of exorbitant college costs leading to exorbitant interest payments.

    I paid off my student loans long ago and the cost in interest was far...
  3. Yes, the "Someone whose working life was ending...

    Yes, the "Someone whose working life was ending right after the change took place" argument is the equivalent of "We can't end slavery/ inequality/ corporal punishment or whatever because those who...

    In the mid 1990s, I went on a Sherlock Holmes kick and read every Holmes story written by Doyle and was sorry when it ended.

    I read the Beekeeper's Apprentice which I thought was quite good though...

    I remember an article where Harlan Ellison said that but I don't know if he was referencing someone else. At the time he said it, Batman would definitely not have been in the top three. I think he...
  6. Poll: Depends on who you ask, in what country and at...

    Depends on who you ask, in what country and at what point in history. I would say almost everyone in the English speaking world knows who they both are. I'd say about equal.

    I'd say Holmes is...

    He's just trying to be annoying at this point and create a list of things so long that Biden cannot possibly undo them all on Day One. Plus a bunch of unmerited pardons that cannot be undone.

    Trump will be out in less than two months but the long term damage is already starting to show. Indiana is pushing cases involving female couples where one was artificially inseminated and denying...

    Connery was in the British Navy which implies some basic self-defense training and he was also a professional bodybuilder albeit nowhere close to the Schwarzenegger level.

    I don't know whether...

    Yes. My understanding is that a writer made her up or started having her fight people as a parody of fight boards and especially of people debating fights between cosmic characters. I get how a...

    Not even a contest. Reed wins easily. Vastly greater stretching powers. Far greater hitting power and durability.

    If it was a contest of shapeshifting to look like a specific person, Odo's...

    An episode of the original Twilight Zone could not match this in that the people would long since have seen the con. It would have underestimated the capacity for confirmation bias.

    I'm not sure I believe Trump believes he can win. I think he has already accomplished his real goal, which is to never, ever, under any circumstances, admit to losing and to make sure that his cult...

    Except that Aquaman already did that. Regardless of our opinions, a major part of the potential audience perceives Snyder's vision as what turned them away from the DCEU. A streaming service...

    My Republican friends (probably soon to be ex-friends): The Election fraud is so obvious that the only possible reason you don't see it is that you are more naive than I ever believed you could be or...

    Yes but there's a point where even solid facts that nobody is disputing are thrown out.

    But there are also biopics that nobody ever claimed events happened as portrayed in the biopic and they are knowingly "printing the myth".

    That question could be asked in many genres. Why are the Kurt Russell and Henry Fonda versions of the Wyatt Earp story so much more respected that the Kevin Costner version when the Costner version...

    The difference is the Connery interview was in 1987 and it was only an assumption on some people's parts that he had actually hit a woman rather than making the point that psychological abuse was...

    Whatever the Democrats and the old school Republicans may have been, they were both the Parties of the Possible. Then you ended up with the Tea Party which was arguably the Party of the Impossible. ...

    People talk about the layers of Hell but never of Heaven. But now we know. Six.

    No surprise at all. The whole appeal of Fox and people like Limbaugh is that they are telling Conservatives 100% what they want to hear. That Fox becoming even mildly realistic is driving them away...
