    I was expecting...

    "Getta your tootsie-frootsie ice cream!"

    "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    I've never been to the races. Definitely on my list of things to do.

    Mint juleps, summer frocks and big hats coming up. What was the race in Tennessee?, Kentucky? with the fighting women sans underwear? That was awesome.

    Tennessee.

    I'd be the bad cigars and ugly sports coat type of racing fan.

    This would also require a cheap straw hat, but I would buy you a drink.

    I can't find an image of Leo Devoe from Get Shorty.

    I'd go with a trilby type of hat I think. Maybe of straw.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I prefer poker. From my favorite myth movie, Rounders:

    Rounders was a great movie

    I agree, but none of it is real. Nevertheless, the voice over commentary is good.

    Back in the late 1800's (maybe 80s or 90s I don't recall) Leland Stanford (CA governor and university founder) supposedly made a bet that a horse, when galloping, had all four feet off the ground. Anyway he commissioned a photographer, Muybridge (yes I did have to google that part) to prove it by taking pictures...he did.


    Why on earth do I know this....I have no idea, my head is full of all sorts of useless crap.

    Wait I thought that was a Bonanza episode.

    You are thinking of the episode when Hos was riding Hop Sing like a rented mule...the precursor to Broke Back Mountain.

    I knew of Muybridge's work on this -- didn't know that Stanford had commissioned it.
