    Most people equate silent films with tinny piano music. But some elaborate score were written for them and in the larger theaters in cities, full orchestras were the norm.

    Many had elaborate organs that rose up from the floor in front of the screen/stage. I saw those at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis and Radio City Music Hall back in the 60’s and 70’s.  For years, they put on a short historical performance after the main feature- Dirty Harry, The Sunshine Boys, etc.


    Don’t know if they’ve kept them operable since then.

    …As we in the legal field clearly have no problems seeing our reflections in mirrors, I consider your hypothesis refuted.

    How do you know that’s your reflection and not someone standing behind you? Or a standee of you from before becoming an attorney? :D

    That board is set up wrong. The king is supposed to sit on his color. Yet the black king is on a white square, and the dog who is in the king spot is on a black square.

    And the white “king” is on a black square.

    This is him in '19.




    Now whether that is rug or not in that picture of him in '21, he sure looked better in that picture then he does in this one.

    That's cuz the '21 photo was heavily Photoshopped.... and poorly done at that.

    Not too far from the truth. GM has notified its EV customers not to charge above 90% capacity and not to park inside. GM installed a large batch of defective batteries from one its suppliers. Owners are to follow these precautions until the batteries can be replaced. And that will take awhile as there aren't enough to go around.

  6. The number of reindeer characters, and the names given to them (if any) vary in different versions, but those frequently cited in the United States are the eight listed in Clement Clarke Moore's 1823 poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, the work that is probably responsible for the reindeer becoming popularly known:[1]Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner (variously spelled Dunder and Donder) and Blitzen (variously spelled Blixen and Blixem).

    This has always tickled me. Cop show. The girl - it's always a girl - lives alone. She hears a noise in some other part of her apartment. And she calls out - IS SOMEONE THERE?


    I hear a noise at the other end of my house I go looking with a flashlight and a gun. HELLOOO??? Yeah, right.

    And in horror movies they’re always scantily clad.
