Another thing about that myth is that it says that every single species of animal were inside the boat. We are discovering species nowadays that we had no clue ever existed! I highly doubt an old man with a cane would be able to do that. And how would ALL the animals come from the different countries to get to Noah? It seems a lot of trouble to go across half of the PLANET to get to one guy in the middle east.

it's simple. back then there were only a few species of animals, that all lived in the same area, and they later evolved into the hundreds or thousands or however many species we have today.

Well, actually, 'back then' wasn't all that long ago, evolutionarily speaking...

The great flood's basically a parable. It appears in several cultures, including the Egyptians and ancient Mesopotamians. But that's religious in nature, so it'd be better left to the politics and current events forum.

Back on topic, fight scenes. I've lost count of the number of times a bad guy's stood there taking a beating. Can't he at least get his hands up and block a couple? I mean, I've been in a scrap or two myself; nobody just sits there and takes it until they're too far gone to care.

The misconseption I hate is that the zombies in 28 days later aren't zombies they are infected, with what ever the monkey had.


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Its not always best to believe things like myth busters etc for everything. I was watching a program not so long ago about the battle of Agincourt. They were trying to disprove how effective the longbow was.

I was interested until they did some work with a bodkin arrow. They proved that a standard arrow of the time couldnt pentrate the best armour of the time. Looking at the figures, the army could fire around 800 arrows a minutes, and not all of the French men at arms would be wearing the best plate armour, so would have taken injuries, maybe not life threatning, but having an arrow sticking out of your arm or leg is going to stop you doing anything useful. And if your horse took an arrow it is going to throw you and your heavy armour on the floor, regardless of its training.

English and Welsh archers of the time were the best at their trade in the western world. Besides the speed they could fire, they could also hit a 4" wide target at over 100yards. Practise was compulsory for all able bodies boys and men after church every week. Recent studies have shown the longbows had a pull weight of between 120 and 180 lbs. Thats is serious upper body strength.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

The film "U-571". Utter fiction. There was a mission to board a German U-boat and capture an enigma machine, it just happens to have been performed by The Royal Navy of Great Britain, not the US Navy.....

The first DVD we ever bought, boy I was pissed. Speaking of that film, I'd loev to see the likely hood of TWO torpedoes scraping against the hull. Two, launched and only scraped the sides... right. Ok.
