Quite a set of links Infidel ... you know, sometimes (not alwayz) when I click back to your page from a link, your page will be missing type and sometimes blank, so I have to click back to the Google search and click on your site again.

But 100 top movies of 2015 ... geeeezz ... I had no idea how many releases there are annually, well, at least it's a damn good business!

That bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden is really a work of art, I dont see Trump's name on it either {:-)

Of course most American's will agree that global warming is real ... seeing is believing ... only the top oil producers dont see it, because it dont effect them (it will in time),and they want to continue to ravish the earth for profits, the majority of people live and experience what has increasingly become a pain in the ass. That is why we need to crack down on these folks in a serious way too. The deniers just feed off propaganda, I've talked to a few folks over the years that dont believe it, you know where they got their info from for denying it? yep ... it's all political and no logic.

What a ridiculous FaceBook story, a national treasure of art being questioned as an obscenity ... folks have no business criticizing Muslims in the middle east who destroy art, statues etc ... especially when some of us act the same goddamn way in the west. You remember Google or the Internet tried some crap a year or two ago with the nudity crap on blogs ... it is downright stupidity and a shame ... and yep ... it's mostly credited to some neo designer religious cult ... trying to bring back what they think are the good ole dayz.

I bet that guy in Oklahoma Jail for shagging a goat got some insults from fellow inmates ... but ... that's life in the big OK City. I have no problemo with anyone having sex with a goat ... as long as it's consensual, but being in Oklahoma in someone else's pen uninvited, he's lucky he didnt get shot. Nonetheless Infidel ... that vodka will do it every damn time man! ... the last time I got wasted on vodka ... I woke up with my britches down in a goat pen and a sore asshole ... the goat got to my vodka when I passed out and violated me instead (just kidding {:-) ... Later Guy ....

Ranch: When I follow a link from a site I'll want to come back to, I usually right-click and choose "open in a new tab". That way the original site is still open also.

I guess I'm out of touch on movies. I didn't see Tian jiang xiong shi or even Xi you ji zhi da sheng gui lai. In fact, I didn't see a single movie on that list, though I may try to get hold of The Martian on DVD at some point.

Of course Trump didn't build that bridge -- if he had it would be plated with fake gold and probably have a casino halfway across.

At least nobody tried to destroy the mermaid statue, but these policies really are ridiculous. As for Google, I remember Faye Kane saying "they decided to go the way of MySpace". They backed down awfully fast when it became clear that the ban would result in a mass exodus.

I'm sure Oklahoma Republicans will soon introduce new laws either banning goat-human marriage or allowing goats to carry guns in self-defense (maybe both).

Facebook disallowing pictures of the Little Mermaid is as silly as John Ashcroft covering Lady Justice and the Obama administration continuing the practice.

Yes, there's an abundance of such idiocy around.
