Fangorn, I love KU football I also have the privelege of living in a town where Bobby Douglas and Gayle Sayers played for my NFL team. It kills me that Lawrence is second rate when it comes to football saturdays in the Big 12. I think that this year will be show significant increases in wins and attendance.

Teapot9: Memorial Stadium gets filled at least once every two years. Ever been to a Nebraska game there? We always called Lawrence our "home way from home" during the football season. Of course last year the Jayhawks ended a 37 year drought against my Huskers. I wonder if they can sustain that? Mangino at least gives them a chance.

coolmom, considering how many people keep seeing mountain lions, I don't think the treasure would stay hidden very well... Well defended, maybe, but not hidden.

ljlook, napoleon, omb you cracked me up. Needed that, headed to the dentis this am.

I would hide treasure in my garage. We moved in Dec, and that is the only room that is not yet organized. It's hot in Memphis so I go out, look at the mess and feel the heat and just go back into the cool, clean house. When we DO clean it out, we'll have one heck of a garage sale and then I'll have to find another place to hide my booty...

I have something important to say here:

If we would have kept these kids off the fountain, they wouldn't have fallen and hurt their eyes (the eye patches, get it).

Let's think of the children, before more are maimed.

Princess, Pirates 2 was fairly entertaining -- mainly when Sparrow was on screen -- but what bothered me is that it felt more like the first half of part 3 than its own movie. It felt like all conflict and no resolution. Kind of an ultimately unsatisfying movie.

I may also have a cynical view on these movies because they're doing the exact same thing they did with the Matrix movies. And really, next to the first, the second and third were disappointing.

Totally unrelated: the next release of the Firefox has a built-in spellcheck feature for anything you type in the browser.

doesn't our movie theater suck? the seats are cramped and there isn't any legroom.

i had a seat that had literally 8 inches of legroom. pitiful. how did our local theater pass code? what if there was a fire when you only have 8" of legroom to maneuver? if i had the money, i'd build a new movie theater that had comfortable seats WITH legroom.

we used to have so many choices - the varsity, granada, hillcrest multi-plex, dickinson theaters, not to mention the drive-in where sonic is on 6th.

Like James Dooley........I would hide mine in our basement. Its used for storage and a place to go when the sirens happen to go off. We don't go down there unless we need too.

We went to see Pirates on Saturday. Went to a matinee showing and truely enjoyed the second installment of three. The cast is great, and the movie is non stop fun.

One thing that bothered me though is this. There was a young lady ( college student I would say ), her date, a girlfriend and her date in the seats in front of us. My son had put his feet on her chair a couple times and I had to remind him not to do that. Of course he and his little friend had questions at times and this young lady kept shaking her head and sighing throughout the whole movie.

My thing is this........I know people want to go to a movie and hear it, not be disturbed or bothered while watching. I have gone and had issues with teenagers making noise and talking. It can be somewhat bothersome, but at the same time you picked that time to go. Did she think she was going to have complete silence going to a 3:30 showing of any movie?

I'd probably hide it somewhere in the no man's land of northern Nevada and southeastern Oregon.
