After the Braveheart line, I got the tone and decided to just roll with it.  Hence the Tongue in my overly-researched post. 

Heck, the name was changed to Windsor because the Germans were bombing London with the Gotha bomber during WWI.  This helped maintain British loyalty and avoid the fate of George's cousins, Wilhelm II and Nicholas II. 

From an atrocity standpoint, the Brits certainly don't have a monopoly on it.  It's just the one that we know the most about.

What atrocities would you attribute to her family in particular?
Didn't you watch Braveheart? smile

Edward I was a Plantagenet, which lost any association with the throne at the end of the War of the Roses (anyone up for a rousing game of Kingmaker?).  QEII is from the House of Windsor, issuing from the founding of the house by George V, formerly of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, cadet branch of the House of Wettin.

But given the atrocities committed by her family, and the history of our countries and that our nation should be anti-royalty, I would prefer my leaders and/or their wives to treat this so-called royalty just like any other citizen.

What atrocities would you attribute to her family in particular?

Full film leaked

Quote
When a high-quality, full-length work print of X-Men Origins: Wolverine surfaced on Internet bittorrent sites last night, early speculation was that this was a doomsday scenario for Fox and the filmmakers behind the tentpole, which is not due to be released until May 1. The response today from competing producers and studio execs, however, has been more measured.

I like reading your stuff, Pete.  Heck, I'll go through your profile just to make sure I haven't missed anything good.

I had to troubleshoot a Microsoft mouse I got for my mother one time because the CD installed the management software, but not, y'know, the driver.  It happens. 
7614  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Nutflex raising price for blu ray rentals on: March 31, 2009, 10:01:05 PM
I dropped the option last night.  And noticed that my e-mail mentioned the end of April, while my acct change is effective in the middle of the month.

Then they'll just "leak" the date for the announcements.

I'm about to be AFK for at least a couple hours.  I'll defer to mytocles.
7619  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: March 31, 2009, 05:40:43 PM
Skeet Ulrich is a failed clone of Johnny Depp, best known (to me) for his roles in Scream and Jericho.

Better than I was doing.  I thought it was Skeet Ulrich to start.

The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator. 

I attempted to attach a 16k jpg file for the Name That Movie thread.

But but but they've added Facebook Connect where you can share your movie ratings!  Surely the BR fee is more than reasonable to support the spread of such cutting-edge technology!

Toby Keith is a jingoistic POS. Looks like a week of no DLC in RB for me!

Surely you haven't downloaded everything you've wanted from the store already?

I refuse to bask in the glow of anything perpetrated by a blue, glowing, emaciated Christian Bale.
7630  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Nutflex raising price for blu ray rentals on: March 30, 2009, 09:16:31 PM
I'm seriously considering dropping the BR option until later in the game, maybe having a BR month where I pay the extra three bucks and just go hog-wild on watching nothing but BR titles for the month.  Given that I have 80% of my titles on DVD only and am sporadic at best at getting through my queue, I might as well save the money.

My days where country was my primary genre of choise are long past, but I might pick up a few of them, or the whole pack if the reviews are good and the songs are catchy.

Info on Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
Quote
Box Office Bust promises open-world sand-box gameplay including exploration, platforming, racing and puzzle-solving. As with other games in the series, it will feature humor, beautiful women and mature themes, although, unlike Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, this game will contain no nudity.

Then what's the freaking point?
7634  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Considering Ipod Touch - Those with one plz chime in on: March 30, 2009, 04:26:51 PM
For extra cords, it was recommended that I shop at MeritLine.  I have not as of yet purchased anything there yet, so I can not speak from experience.  The site was mentioned last week at PC World in reference to HDMI cables (along with perennial forum favorite MonoPrice).

I find that getting my vitamins along with my alcohol increases my likelihood of drinking to excess.

The zombies at Trader Vic's go down easy and pack a punch.  But my sweet tooth is well and truly established.

Last week, Castle came in 2nd to CSI: Melodrama ( puke ) with 9.8 million viewers, almost 50% more than Patricia Marionnette's Medium.

Just watched the premiere on ABC's site since I missed it.  Have the next two on DVR and will definitely be sticking with it and hoping that it holds up.

Since we aren't getting a Rock Band 3 this year I'm glad this patch is coming.

Damn, denog.  Let me finish RB2 before we get a third one.  There's no chance that I'll be going back to work on RB1.

I have the Carcassone demo, but have yet to try it.  I have seen and heard good things about it from the tabletop version, as I have a strong tabletop history, but I just haven't gotten around to firing it up.
