Mrs Coldwarrior and I watched this the other night on one of the Indian Channels we get (well, I get for cricket). Anyway, we loved it!

 

Endhiran (Robot),  a film

 

 

 

 

the full movie here:

 

 

No Bollywood film would be complete without some choreography. :lol:

    Hmmm… I guess I prefer something a little less abstract. New stuff from John Hiatt.

    It was a low 9 figures deal and I was the buyer’s rep. Now this is weird. I went to the closing at 0830. I’m sitting at the conference table with the seller’s lawyer, banker, marketing guy, CEO and CFO. We’re waiting for confirmation of the wire transfer. While we’re waiting, we’re just yackin about football and the upcoming bowl games. I mentioned that just before I came to the meeting, I saw on Fox that the Marine who had been held in a Mexican prison since August would be released today. None of them had a clue as to what I was talking about. And these were sophisticated bidness men in their 40′s and 50′s. I was stunned. I had to sit there with that bunch until the wire came through at about 11:30 and then drive back to Austin. Wore me out.

    in a good way of course. i would get one of them in one of my meetings to describe a new tech roll out and it was like talking to a squirrel. i’d have to keep asking ‘this has to do with the people in this room how?’

    I kept an 18 inch baseball bat on my desk labelled ‘user alignment tool’.

    operator timing and headspace.

    had a similar device. i kept a cricket bat at my desk. when the sort would go bad in the terminal i would take it out and ‘fix’ the joint. if the employees saw me carrying the bat, they knew bad things were coming.

    it became an icon in the building that i passed on.

    I hear ya. I am a news junky so I can understand that there are many who are not as up-to-date on the news as I am. But, geez. If one even clicked on a news site or watched 15 minutes of news over the past 2 weeks, one couldn’t escape the picture of the guy chained to a bed in a prison cell. I guess I’m amazed at the lack of curiosity.

    @ huckfunn:

    perhaps the more info and the more ways peeps can access info means the more they specialize and never leave their comfort zone.

    so , for instance, real estate guys just stick to that, specialized on their phone.

    You’ve got a point. I primarily get my news from Drudge, Fox, WZ and the Washington Times. I suppose that’s why I’m better informed than people who watch the alphabet news.

    Yep. Of course I’ve eaten in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait so I am used to not drinking any water that isn’t from a name brand bottle.

    to this day i still buy apolinaris or pelligrino. these are always in the house. i dont go through cases at a time, but it is a fun remembering when that was the only water (even to brush teeth) that was safe.

    we grab a case at costco once in a while. my 4 yo loves it as a treat.

    Welcome to the Stout Hemp Rope Party Party…

    Our Motto: Why yes, there is enough Stout Hemp Rope in America to solve all of our problems.

    Our Creed: A Fifth Column Treasonous Media Propagandist hanging from every streetlamp.

    Our platform:

    1) Go to a flat tax, 15% for all individuals 20% for all business and corporations, no deductions no loopholes. All Citizens pay, no exceptions. No non citizen receives any federal or state benefits.

    2) Cap federal spending at a Maximum of 80 percent of the previous years tax receipts, No exceptions except in the event that congress declares war. The remaining 20 percent is to be used to pay down the debt and absolutely nothing else.

    Ridiculous. America makes perfectly good synthetic rope in every size, color and degree of stretchiness. Braided, cored; you name it.

    Hemp has a certain traditional/historical value here, though.

    I’m sure that the REAL reason why Congress will not permit the growing of industrial hemp (which cannot be used as a drug) is that it brings up too many unpleasant associations having to do with the capital crime of treason.

    i’ll take hemp over synthetic any day. wont bother getting into the pros and cons of hemp over synthetic as most would find the debate to be pedantic and boring.

    i do giggle at lehmans being on line.

    oh, and the lecture is up.


  47. 47 | December 22, 2012 8:47 am

    Well, I favor tradition myself, but let’s be honest here. Lots of hanging to be done, and nobody knows how to properly whip a hemp rope end anymore. Synthetic rope can just have the ends melted (or cut with a hot blade) and yer done. A good single shot rifle (think Sharps, Ballard or Hepburn here) is a thing of beauty and joy to use, but we’re gonna need something more pragmatic to deal with these scum.

    hemp is a pretty amazing plant, it grows anywhere and even in poor soils…it does not deplete the soil either…drought and insect resistant…and it has a bunch of potential uses…Canada grows quite a bit of it…it’s just idiotic that the feds don’t allow it’s production here
