.... and no one around you recognizes the quote. Confused Like I saw the movie so many times as a teen that as an adult I would say Burtonisms when the situation arose like: "son of a bitch must pay" or "ok everyone, don't painc, I'm HERE." People woud just look at me and say "AND???" Confused I kind wish I lived in a parallel universe where BTILC was a huge box office smash hit where everyone appreciated the quotes.

Any true BTiLC fan worth his (or her) salt has used the line, "It's all in the reflexes" at least once, even in situations where it does not apply. Cool

Welcome to the Forum, Third Storm! Very Happy

IMO, I'm sort of glad that it wasn't a major hit or else everybody would be talking about it all the time and it would get old and if you liked the movie you would just be "following the crowd."

Funny you should mention that. Whenever anybody asks me if I am ready, I always respond by saying "I was born ready!" in Jack-Burtonesque drawl.

A weird conversation I had with my girl friend:

Me: I am going to say something, and you respond to my statement by saying "it depends on how you look at it".

Her: Why?

Me: I dunno...just do it. It will be awesome.

Her: Uh....ok.

Me: Ok...here goes. Look, I am a reasonable guy but I've just experienced some very unreasonable things.

Her: It depends on how you look at it.

Me: The hell it does....so somebody...I don't care who, tell me what the hell is going on around here!

Her: WTF?

Me: Laughing

WTF? Are there weird Freudian things going on with the board? Laughing

It changes the word girl-friend (subtract the dash) into the word "mother". So, instead of saying that I had a weird conversation with my girl-friend, it says I had a weird conversation with my "mother".

I went and edited my original post by putting a space in between "girl" and "friend", and now it works.

So somebody....I don't care who...tell me what the hell is going on around here!!!

Whoops, that's my handiwork- we occasionally get a spammer who posts pornographical material with the title, "Can your girl friend do this? Mine can!" So, I added the GF word to a word censor, making his posts of the incestuous variety. I'm usually quick to ban people like this, but for the times when I'm off-line, this is a security measure for humorous purposes... Laughing

There are actually lots of words in the censor- try typing a few and see what you get! Wink

I could almost turn it into a game! Laughing

Guess what word I typed and got THIS result:

(elaborate digital enhancements of the Sistine Chapel recreated in pure 3-D Marzipan carvings)

just ban every IP address that leads to a "googlebot." That will get rid of all the agricultural ads. we did it on my forum.

Got something against vegetables? Wink

(Actually, we ban their IP addresses and E-mail, and some still keep coming back. But no matter- they will run out of IP addresses eventually...) Cool
