    10 till 2....that is true....it used to be 20 till 4 but apparently it resembled a frown so it was decided to start setting them at 10 till 2 so the watch can have a big happy face....i wonder if it actually made that much of a difference...."hey, that watch sure does look happy...i think ill take it home"...yeah, i doubt it but fuck it...someone make a living comming up with shit like that....
     
  12. Something i've noticed,
    On 'eyes wide shut' Tom Cruise's range rover plates are "87 99"
    which are the dates of his previous movie (Full metal Jacket, 1987)
    and his last (Eyes wide shut, 1999).
    I love it when i discover that kind of shit.;)

    That was the original name of Los Angeles. But of course they shortened it to Los Angeles a long time ago. So Los Angeles is the correct name.

    About that "nothing rhymes wuth purple" thing...
    you mean when I twist my little nephews nipple and yell "purple nurple" I am in fact not rhyming at all since "nurple" is not a word. Damn. I guess I'll just use the phrase "titty twister" from now on...
