The resolution's not so great, but this commercial is hilarious!
Topic: Are fantasy books considered literature?
Posted: Thursday, April 8, 2010 3:43:08 PM
In most bookstores there is a separate section for fantasy and science-fiction books, away from the so-called 'Literature' section. Many people seem to reflect this discernment in their minds and consider fantasy books as something other than proper literature. Just as the 'Romance' section has a certain stigma of holding second-rate books, the 'Science-Fiction/Fantasy' section also has its own reputation of carrying inconsequential books. Do you think that fantasy books are less valuable than other literature? Think

Topic: Secret Sin Movies

All of the Gremlin movies (with the deceptively cute furry creatures)
The Legend of the Drunken Master starring Jackie Chan

I'm sure there are more blatantly terrible movies that I enjoy, despite their atrociousness, but these are the only ones I can think of at the moment. Also, no one has pointed out that this thread is paradoxical in that it urges us to reveal our dirty secrets and entirely disregards the motivation behind keeping "secret sin movies" exactly that - a secret. A good idea nonetheless Applause

While I may occasionally be adventurous and try experimental flavors such as green tea or strawberry shortcake, without fail I always return to good ol' chocolate. Plain, beautiful, delightful chocolate! You can never go wrong with it.

I find it quite amusing that people even feel the need to confess to a questionably unhealthy addiction to books; it goes without saying that most of us on TFD are bookworms.

I am also a news junkie of sorts. Some agree that it is healthy to keep abreast with the latest happenings of the world, but others make the sensible argument that the voluminous negative news should diminish my desire to know about the latest terrorist bombing or reports on more evidence for climate change. Oh well, humans are creatures of habit so I shouldn't even bother controlling my addiction to the news.

A monogamous married fox -- excellent!

Male foxes choose to be monogamous or single their whole lives, never promiscuous. Maybe foxes should be studied for the gene responsible for vasopressin that washes the brain with monogamy instincts and feelings.

I wonder if Wes Anderson will do a movie called, A Tiger in the Woods?

I love your proposal! Applause With all the news coverage his scandal is receiving, I'm sure a movie on the subject would be an instant blockbuster.

Maybe he's getting do-bee points for getting the US Gov't to finally admit that greenhouse gases and global warming exist.

When did THAT become official?

While it's true that Congress has not passed the climate bill yet, the US government has shown its support for thwarting carbon emission and working to control global warming. The stimulus package earlier this year included provisions for clean energy and the US has been playing an active role in the Copenhagen meeting. Yes, the US government and people have MUCH MORE to do, but Obama can rightly take credit for the USA's move towards a greener future (I hate using that phrase but there it is Sick )

I do however believe that President Obama's Noble prize is very much premature, but I am also happy that he received it graciously and admitted his own hesitance with the award Applause . Also, I think the award has more to do with his plans for the Middle East rather than his efforts to control climate change.
