Alibeartoes, when you use the site features (games, feature articles) a lot and you have a high neuron level (Tfd says above 100%), you will earn a meal (and you will get a greeen spoon to your profile) approximately once a week.

There is no mention about what actress popularized her headscarf, but my guess is it was Kate Hepburn.

That's wonderful, I didn't know about the full title of the play. Back then they sure enjoyed long, explanatory titles.

Topic: CN Tower Becomes World's Tallest Free-Standing Structure (1975)
Posted: Tuesday, April 2, 2019 5:21:57 PM
There is no mention about lightnings in the article. I found a website with an answer: "The CN Tower in Toronto, completed 40 years ago, is hit by lightning about 75 times a year." Which is less than I thought.

There is a nice video on youtube "CN Tower hit by lightning 15 times"

Topic: Book Titles

I always thought the book was first, but it seems movie was first and the book was later made from screenplay (and I even couldn't find a decent book cover).
But anyway, to add to a sci-fi series of posts:

E.T. by Melissa Mathison.




Btw, good find, Dragon. The history of it seems to be a bit complicated.

"Note: This page presents quotes from both published editions of Heinlein's most famous work. The edited first edition of 1961 (FE) contains some memorable quotes that are not in the longer "Uncut" ACE/Putnam edition of 1991 (UC), based on his original manuscripts, because a few significant lines were actually added, rather than trimmed down, during the editing process of the first edition."

Topic: Brexit solution?
Posted: Monday, February 4, 2019 4:50:23 AM
I really thought there would be efforts to repeat the referendum, at least maybe until December.
But it seems a hard brexit is what is going to happen, and some previously unimagined things are considered.


Hard Brexiters say only acceptable way forward is to remove backstop.
