  1. That depends on the individual store. We would have never gotten away with that at the one where I worked.
  2. This was not an embryonic stem cell. It was an adult stem cell. There have been precisely zero proven results from all the embryonic stem cell research that has been done so far. All the real benefits to date have been from adult stem cells.
  3. Very few informed people are against using stem cells. There are those, such as myself, who are against destroying human life by using embryonic stem cells, and there are those who simply don't understand the difference between embryonic and adult stem cells.
  4. Fantastic! Yet another use for adult stem cells.
  5. What on earth are you talking about?
  6. Ah, yes, that's right. I definately do need to read it again.
  7. Yeah, that one was pretty easy to get the first time around. Although, there is plenty of deeper stuff (the stuff not essential to the plot) to be gleaned on multiple viewings.
  8. I absolutely disagree. Those are the best type of films. If everything is fully apparent the first time around, there isn't much left to make you want to rewatch it right away. I like movies that force me to pay close attention and really think to understand them.
  9. I know that Long John Silvers is horrible for me, but it sure does taste good. I'll second the idea that Chick-fil-A is just about the best fast food out there. I still love it even after having worked there a couple summers ago, and that's saying something. Everyone I know who has worked at McDonald's or Burger King say they just can't eat there any more.
  10. Oh well. In that case, just read the fourth line of my post. My same vote still stands.
  11. No, she wasn't. That's the only character that wasn't there, actually. Interesting. I forget the reasoning there. Agreed, but I think The Magician's Nephew is probably the hardest to turn into a film. Agreed on both counts. Thus why I think The Silver Chair would realistically be the best place to end it. The Horse and His Boy would make a good film, but it's just so separate from the other books.
  12. Wait, are we talking about the scores or the movies? Assuming it's the movies, this is a truly difficult choice. I love both franchises (and both books). The storyline in HP7a is maybe a bit more interesting, but then it is currently incomplete. And I am far more in line with the beliefs portrayed in Narnia. Both were excellent movie adaptations but in different ways—HP7a being relatively exact to the book and VotDT being a very well done plot adjustment. As for the scores, there's no question that Arnold wins this one. Desplat's score still just doesn't do anything for me. Edit: And Zimmer's
  13. I think she was there... I'll have to re-read it sometime soon.
  14. con·sum·ma·tion –noun 1. the act of consummating; completion. 2. the state of being consummated; perfection; fulfillment. In our universe, yes.
  15. The next book, The Silver Chair, follows Eustace and a new character, Jill Pole. At the end of the Dawn Treader movie, we hear Eustace's mother say that Jill Pole came over to visit, which seems to be a hint that they at least want to make the fourth if it gets the green light. Although I'd love to see all seven books become movies, I'd be content to see it end after four. To be honest, the first four make much more of a unified whole than the last three. Book five, The Horse and His Boy, goes back into the past of Narnia—during the time that Peter, Edmund, Suzy, and Lucy were reigning—but foc
  16. Is it just me, or is the expanded version of "This Is Berk" broken? It only plays 16 seconds and cuts off very abruptly for me. Are others having this problem?
  17. I do know Five Guys. Now that is awesome food!
  18. I think that's the key right there. We all put this score up on an impossibly high level of expectation. It could have actually been another Independence Day, and many of us still would have been disappointed.
  19. I think a lot of these must be local chains. I've lived in three different parts of the US (as well as in Jamaica), and I've never encountered either Whataburger or In-n-Out Burger.
  20. Burger King by a mile. I can't stand McDonalds (except for their breakfasts). Wendy's is easily above both, though, and Rallys/Checkers is all the way at the top. That's for fast food, of course. If we're just talking burgers, then we have to factor in Five Guys, Cheeburger Cheeburger, Fudruckers, Red Robin, and The Beacon.
  21. It was WAY toned down from the book. This is C.S. Lewis we're talking about.
  22. Interesting, but that could only make Puss-in-Boots a copy of Reepicheep, as Reepicheep's character was pretty much taken from the book as written. (Although I do think coincidence is probably a bit more likely.)
  23. Okay. http://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=19593
