Nice birthday group today. Either of our birthday ladies qualifies for the Cute Girl = Picture Slot criterion and Matt Damon is likely the biggest A-List star of the group. Kirk Alyn could get the nod for playing Superman back in the day of ridiculously low budgets and R.L. Stine gets some credit for creating a cottage industry, but I put a picture of a cover of Dune because I loved the first novel so much as a young man. When I heard they were making a movie of it, I thought "That's not going to work. Too much of the book takes place inside people's thoughts." There's been both a major motion picture and a big budget mini-series and... I still think I'm right.
Many happy returns ot the living on the list.
Prediction: 2010: A massive earthquake destroys most of Los Angeles. What remains of the city merges with San Diego to become San Angeles.
Predictor: Demolition Man, released 8 October 1993
Reality: That would be one hell of an earthquake. Right now they are 120 miles apart and if the earthquake reduced that dramatically, there wouldn't be enough of San Diego remaining to merge with.
Look one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Yet another exact year prediction from Demolition Man.
Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
