In spite of what the haters might say, Starbucks coffee beans make an excellent cup of coffee, especially when you make it at home yourself.   Thumbup

We don't have Starbucks here but we do have Wild Bean coffee: you buy this at any BP garage / gas station and it. is. heaven. in. a cup.  TeddyR Drink

Trevor, we have Wild Bean here too at the BPs, but it's not as good as Starbucks.  Maybe you guys get your beans sourced from somewhere else.   Question

That doesn't stop me from getting a cup whenever I'm on the road.  A mediocre cup of coffee is better than no cup of coffee  Thumbup

But they do have wicked donuts   TeddyR

Even though it was made in 1958 Ed Woods' NIGHT OF THE GHOULS wasn't released until 1982. It had been sitting in a film post-production house for all those years because of an unpaid lab bill. Woods' widow Kathy told producer Wade Williams about it so he paid the bill and got control of the film.

Stephen King Will allow aspiring film-makers to purchase the film rights to any of his short stories (and only short-stories, not novels) for a dollar. The resulting films are sent directly to him and, if he enjoys them, placed on a shelf marked "Dollar-Babies."

Really? I think I need to spread the word around here; lots of aspiring filmmakers who could benefit from having the burden of coming up with the plot removed from their shoulders.

The Ford Pinto SHOULD have been one of the safest cars on the road. It was meant to feature three highly advanced safety features that were cut out of production due to cost. Those features were anti-lock brakes, Airbags, and bladderized fuel tanks. Instead its potential for disaster is almost cliche.

Reminds me of a recurring bit the Frantics did on their TV show in the 80s - Mr. Interesting.
"Here's an interesting fact. If you were to take every woman in the world and line them up, naked, I'd be right over."

Here's a real one I touched on in another thread recently. Superman creator Joe Shuster was the cousin of Frank Shuster, of the comedy duo Wayne and Shuster. Wayne and Shuster appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show 67 times.

It is almost impossible for an opossum to get rabies. Their normal body temperature is way too low.

So if you see a opossum, give it a hug.
