    Let's see...*looks in closet*

    Guy shirt, guy shirt, guy shirt, guy shirt...nope. No women's clothes aside from my dress clothes.

    I think it's just stereotyped gender role stuff. Same reason people still poke fun at male nurses or female police officers.

    Was called a dyke for so long I tried it... *rimshot*

    But seriously folks. Clothing should have nothing to do with gender or sex. I have a friend who looks hot as heck in women's blazers and skinny ties and jeans. A "fairy" (wings and all) in KMart one night made me smile.

    Am reminded of the debate from Mr B Natural...Yes! Let's break down ALL the barriers!!

    Well, it does, unfortunately. I mean heck, right now, there's this stigma that men can't wear pink, otherwise they're "light in the loafers", if you know what I mean.

    Similarly, the same can be said with vocabulary as well... again, there's certain words that men can't say ("fabulous" being one of the top ones) without having the "gay" stigma put on them.

    And on THAT note, if you say certain words like, "split", "gnarley", or really any other such slang words, apparently, that gives people the impression that you're a stoner.

    "Nathalie forgot that she already saw the movie last Saturday."
    Is the grammar correct?

    [spoilers] At the end of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb what does Alexei de Sadeski do with his wristwatch? It happens after Gen. Turgidson's speech about how the Soviets would also protect there population at this de Sadeski walks away from the others and heads towards the door then looks at his wristwatch and then presses a button on it. It obviously must have some importance as it shows the watch in close-up. I thought it may have been either he contacts the Soviets to tell them the American's plans or that the wristwatch is a dettonation device the destroys the war room, but then would it go off immediately or would there be some delay? After it there is only one small segment of the film where Dr Strangelove gets out of the chair then it cuts to the atomic bombs going off with 'We Will Meet Again' playing in the background, this would suggest that the Americans do go underground when the doomsday machine goes off but could mean something else. [spoilers]

    Yes. Not very elegant (now THERE'S an overused word lately) but correct. :attitude:

    As to "Strangelove"...wow, haven't seen that in at least ten years, would have to go watch it again. Which I should anyway. :news:

    Am I the only one who wishes people would use entire sentences and correct grammar on dating site posts? At least this helps weed out the idiots...

    Hey, I've totally been there. People just judge, I guess, cuz they're close minded. It's a sick part of human nature, judging a book by it's cover, to use a cliché.

    P.S. That video...gah, I feel so bad for those kids! D: People, just let the boy be a princess, okay, and the girl be Spiderman. :(

    Did Marty Feldman intentionally change Igor's voice throughout Young Frankenstein? I know the shifting position of his hunchback was intentional on his part, but I've also wondered about his voice shifting from high and nasally to deep and monotone.

    And what exactly is up with shows having a random word with a # sign in front of it plastered on the picture?
  15. Sgt Floyd

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    I think that's for twitter so you can type them messages
  16. newsmanfan

    newsmanfan Well-Known Member

    It's called a hashtag. If you type that in on Twitter you get a list of everyone who's used a tweet with that reference. Useful for gathering all commentary on a given show/celebrity/subject, though of course one must wade through a lot of, er, stuff.

    The Muppets twitter feed made fun about the whole hastag thing a few months ago.
