Hey I buy two lottery tickets each drawing.  I figure $4 a week for a infinitesimal chance of winning is better that $4 a week on diet coke which has no chance of netting me millions.

regarding the rapefruit graphic, I had a fairly large argument trying to explain that rapeseed is a real thing to my gf.  Would have been much smoother had we had internet access during the debate

In Harry Potter, house elves are elves made into servant slaves.  They get set free if you give them clothing, and SPOILER ALERT in the books one of them is freed by being given a sock.  In the above, Legolas the Tolkein elf is given a sock and he reacts as if he is given freedom as with Harry Potter elves.

The color of the sock really complements the sweat stains on his burlap sack.

My description of the elf thing?  There are a few other things that happen in the books aside from just sock gifting.

Yes, that sounds silly to me. I don't want to read a book where giving an elf a sock sets it free. That goes against everything that an elf is to me! I am sure I have read books with similar silly things, but that along with what I know of the series, doesn't make it seem like something I would want to read. As I said though, I tried to read the first one, and I have seen parts of the movies, I wasn't impressed. I don't understand many things from current pop culture, but HP is one of the greater mysteries to me. That and Big Bang Theory.

(When it comes to books, movies, and TV I disagree with GT/OO etc about 99% of the time.)

The elves are treated as personal slaves and are below the lowest class.  They aren't even allowed to wear clothes, so they make do with pillowcases or other discarded rags.  The gift of clothing from their master is a symbolic gesture used to signify the master is granting the elf freedom.  In this situation, the article of clothing was only a sock because Harry wanted to trick the elf's master into granting his freedom, and he needed a piece of clothing small enough to pull off the plan.

I'm constantly amazed how different people can be.  I went into reading the first book expecting a stupid kid's story (I just grabbed the book off my nephew's shelf).  Instead it was a fairly mature and decently written story.

I'm afraid Lee and I share pretty much nothing in common other than being forumites here.

It's not you Hark, it's me. slywink I am a snob and very particular about my entertainment. I usually don't like the stuff that gets mass popularity. Die Hard, the Matrix, etc, stuff like that I tend to hate. I like dramas and movies that make me think in order to figure out the meaning. I am not a big reader anymore, but when it comes to teen fiction, I really like Neil Gaiman's stuff, it's darker. Most of what is commented on here I don't consider watchable so I ignore entertainment threads.

As far as games, lot of people agree with me on Dream Quest.
