Re: FFF

  • I don't get the appeal for Almost Famous. It's a good movie, but I was never blown away by it. I will agree though that it is one of Kate Hudon's best movies.

    [QUOTE]AATB, I was grossed out, not my aunt. It's possible I'm thinking of the wrong movie.  Does Man on a Moon have a farming accident?  If so, that's what grossed me out. I pictured it in my mind and it just grossed me out even though it was off screen.

    DJ, you"re thinking of the movie with Reese Witherspoon, back when she was about 12-13.  I love that movie though.

    Yeah that was Man IN the Moon.  Man ON the Moon was the Andy Kaufman biopic :)

    You remind me of a snarky/annoying version of Sheldon from BBT.  You use big words like he does, but unlike him, it's not endearing in the least.

    ...Really? Really, really?

    To answer your question... I dunno, People who read a lot as children? I'm not sure how to explain why some people have larger vocabularies than others except environmental factors (ie, books, school system, how involved their parents were in education, how early they were taught to read).

    How in the world am I "trying to act super intelligent." How would that even work? LOL, suggesting that I usually am around people who can formulate real thoughts shouldn't even make you think "super intelligent." That should be a basic expectation.

    Thurman, if you were half as smart as you seem to think you are, you really wouldn't need to spend days on end trying to prove what a genius you are to complete strangers on the internet.
