But then remembered that he graduated from Hogwart's before Bionicle came out and yes I know it's not real because he wasn't allowed toys. Or live in Seattle. But!
If Harry Potter was going to have a muggly TCG, I think he would prefer one featuring amnesiac robot monsters on a tropical isle over D&D seeing as one is fantasy and the other one is Fantasy otherwise it would be something of a workman's holiday sort of diversion, wouldn't it?
MUGGLE TWO: Every freaking time. What are the odds?

"This is like a four-dimensional chess game. It's really complex," said former newspaper editor Alan Mutter, who is now an industry consultant when he isn't writing "Reflections of a Newsosaur," a free blog.
As if traditional chess isn't hard enough, let alone 3-D chess. (Mr. Spock notwithstanding.) The problem of dying print news is only as complex as 4-D chess in the sense that it is impossible to visualize. If you are a newspaperman.
To the rest of us, the problem seems more along the lines of attacking Moscow in winter. Sure you can do it, but you will lose everything that matters in the process.

As of March, 2009, there are reports that Tom Hanks is planning to portray Matt Mason in a feature film, possibly as both a human and a toy version, the latter presumably a CGI animation.Ohpleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease
And a screenshot from Destination Moon, just because I can:

The fundamental problem is that it is all tell and no show. An illustrated radio play.

Update. It turns out that Granny is Daisy Moses, Jed's mother-in-law and Jethro is, as I ought to have recollected, a Bodine. This throws things into a somewhat different light if I am strict with the family relations. Jethro's notable strength really does point to a Herculean cognate, though. Fiddle-faddle, I have no enthusiasm to look up Greek gods' cousins.
Update to the update. I propose that Jethro is a Titan, Epimetheus, a notable fool. But where is Prometheus? Perhaps the interested student could search for him in Petticoat Junction or Green Acres? The possible mother's-in-law for Zeus is a pretty wide field but Ellie Mae / Aphrodite's mother is Dione whose father is Epimetheus. Yes, Jethro is Ellie Mae's grandfather and I defy anyone to prove me wrong. Why shouldn't Bugtussle, Tennessee be every bit as inbred as Olympus.?
They are doing it wrong.Mr. Hogan is working on a prototype of a new model, the 550, for next year. State officials have agreed to test it by filling it with aromatic food and depositing it on Yellow-Yellow’s turf. “She’s the whole reason we’re doing this,” he said.They are not building a better container, they are building a better bear. Sooner than is comfortable there will be a cadre of Adirondack bears selling derivatives to insurance brokers.

UPDATE: DVD extras include press tour interviews with Henry Fonda who is either exhausted, distracted by some calamity or just bored out his ever-loving skull delivering loopy yet cutting remarks about the movie.

Minuses: The telegraphing of events is so frequent and obvious that they almost start piling up on into each other creating a reverse echo chamber of meta-telegraphing. An inadvertent Memento. There is a very bad stretch where flashbacks, even more unneeded characters, and narration all happen in close proximity. Adequate dialogue but the plot is stupid.
But the biggest complaint is that it's just the Odessa File without Elie Wiesel. And also without the Dickensian reveal. One of the production companies is Odessa Films. Coincidence?
I find myself in complete accordance with this review.

The only people who might have an issue are his life insurance underwriters.
Update: He went to Argentina to see his mistress. And made a big weepy to-do about it. lame. Now he sucks for keeping secrets from his wife and then being a big baby. Lame. On the other hand, why is his personal life more important than his political acts? Why?

As the brain winds down into its September stage and the demands put upon it strain its dobbin back, perhaps a crutch becomes needed. Or in this brain's particular case, one of those little carts for dogs with weak hips. An example is vocabulary software when trolling through the thesaurus becomes a chore.

I'm not arguing against volunteering or cosplay but I'm not sure it's two great tastes that taste great together.
On the other hand, the image of Ravenblade and Xtreme doing a Walk for Babies is charming.

When I replaced the wax ring under the toilet, some of the old linoleum came away and I decided to pull it up, which led to the state in the first picture. One trip to Ace Hardware later I had a heat gun and a scraper to use against the linoleum which I figured would be a snap because that center bit came up so easy.
The rest of the floor can be revealed at about one inch every 5 minutes. Aaaaaagh!

Apparently this hill is very steep and broken arms and legs are not unusual. The running of the bulls is foolhardy but this is just foolhardier. It's all fun and games until blah blah blah cheese.
In other Gloucestershire cheese-related news: Stinking Bishop is deemed the smelliest. Congratulations, I guess.

Although my first reaction is a dope-slap on behalf of Congress, this is a good thing. Although it is not only closing the barn door after the horse is out, it also a day late and a dollar short.
If I ever found a political party, it is likely to be symbolised by crossed firebrands and hay forks.
