  • @apizzagirl Surprised it took you so long to come to that decision… in reply to apizzagirl #
  • Been watching Season 5 of Stargate Atlantis today… interesting how many Stargate actors were also on Sanctuary #

  • I have to say, though, SGA season 5 did a hell of a lot for Woolsey's character #
  • @Quarksbartender don't forget the extra-huge smile with that :)) in reply to Quarksbartender #
  • When in doubt, invert the polarity #thingsstartrektaughtme #

  • @TheUniques Whatever you do, don't use "Braveheart" as a source… movie was completely inaccurate in reply to TheUniques #

  • @TheUniques Wallace fought 2 yrs before caught & killed, but Bruce fought for decades after, wasn't crowned until 13 yrs after Wallace died in reply to TheUniques #
  • @TheUniques And his "betrayal" in the movie? He stopped fighting for a few years because the Brits were holding his daughter hostage in reply to TheUniques #
  • @TheUniques Not saying Rob't Bruce was a saint, but the movie was like a character assassination piece. Demonized him for no good reason in reply to TheUniques #
  • @TheUniques aaand… as you may have guessed, I did a bit of research on Rob't Bruce after I found out he's my ancestor in reply to TheUniques #

  • Looks like one IP address is causing nearly all this traffic… looks like somebody in Canada is using a site-ripper on my site… #
