A place to share your musings on things that might be interesting or thought provoking, but not really life changing.
Decided to start this thread after watching The Highwaymen. Mainly because it got me thinking about who doesn't know about Bonnie and Clyde? I don't ever remember anyone explaining them to me and I've never even seen the classic flick from the 70's. Even as a kid I knew who they were. Were they famous and when they died they became infamous? Or were they infamous as criminals and then became famous after they died? I dunno.
It's kind of weird when you think about it how many criminals we have as "national heroes". It doesn't seem to matter that they were criminals. It was how their story was sold to everyone reading about it at the time and that attitude seems to just keep on carrying through.
You know how comedians and other people used to make that joke about how people drive on a parkway but park on a driveway? I think it's stupid, because a parkway is called a parkway because it goes through what amounts to a park (sometimes legitimately a park, sometimes not), and a driveway was called that because their function was to get you up to the place you were going - you'd drive up to it.
Why are chicken breasts more expensive at the grocery store than chicken thighs? Are there weird chicken mutants that are only chicken thighs, so there are, you know, more of them and fewer chicken tiddies?
I really need to water my ficus.
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
