    I actually don't speak German, I speak Spanish, but I do have a great fondness for Wagner and strudel... and Elton John??

    Now that the date in the "future" when Doc Brown brings Marty to October 2015 to do something about his kids has passed, we're left wondering about the ethics of time travel and knowing too much about our own futures. Crispin Glover thought he knew enough about his future to argue with Bob Gale and Bob Zemeckis over the implicit insinuation at the end of the first film that money=happiness, and found himself subsequently left out of the sequels. 2015 came and went without hoverboards, although we have these annoying, self-immolating "hoverboards" (with purposefully used "") everywhere. My college recently banned them over concerns about safety, and safety is something that never factored into the plot decisions surrounding the Nordberg character in the Naked Gun films. My son asked my wife this morning, "what's sperm?" and while we didn't tell him what it meant, I was reminded that when I first watched The Naked Gun, that's when I learned the sexual meaning of "Nice beaver!" after Priscilla Presley hands Leslie Nielson a taxidermied castor canadensis. I'll be in Canada in July; we've booked a house on the beach on Prince Edward Island and I'm looking forward to bird-watching for hours on end, hoping to catch a glimpse of the aurora borealis the way Sean Penn recently caught a glimpse of El Chapo, leading to his being caught in a more literal sense. Sean Penn is a famous activist, actor, and wannabe journalist. His acting in some films, like Malick's The Tree of Life has brought tears to my eyes, but sometimes he's made me laugh until it hurt, "My dad's got a great set of tools, man." But, before he was famous, he played Groovin' Larry in the 2nd installment of The Beaver Trilogy, as did Crispin Glover in the 3rd. So, the question remains, which installment of the Beaver Trilogy do you prefer, and why?
    Hot damn- well I picked up the meaning of a few of those sentences... Terrance Malick, big fan, Thin Red Line is one of my fav movies. I saw the tree of life after breaking a bone in my foot and I was hopped up on percocet... maybe surprising to note that it did not help the experience. I was watching like, these dinosaurs appear in the middle of a movie about daddy issues and I couldn't help but struggle with that just a bit. Beaver trilogy... I haven't seen it but you've piqued my interest. I generally like the 2nd installment in trilogies because I enjoyed the Empire Strikes Back so I'm assuming the 2nd installment of the Beaver trilogy would be analogous to that move and the experience it provided. Can you freeze a beaver in carbonite? One thing that has kept me back from posting is that I use the ellipsis too much and I get self conscious about it... so I need to work on that.

    YOhio is the funniest person on this board. He is also a mod, so you pretty much just stepped in a giant turd right out of the gate. Better check yourself, bro.

    On a side note, can we trade in the SU character and get back the DDD persona?
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Or maybe we can require SU to assume the character of DDD for a given period of time.

    If you're going to participate in this board, you need to be prepared to offer free professional advice. Here goes: You're a psychologist? My psychiatrist wants me to look into CBT therapy. Sounds like a crock of shit to me. Feelings?

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    What is the story of DDD's departure?
    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Should have been clear to us from the missing "n" in Raketenmensch (Raketenmann?). The Elton John part, I mean.

    Welcome Herr Rocketman.

    In time, you'll appreciate YO's calls to repentance. You never know if he's being sincere or not, but there's always that chance that he truly cares...
