True enough.  Yet they created the best system of government the world had seen up to that time.
We still govern ourselves by the document they created.

Today the MY LITTLE PONY franchise seems to have acquired a large fanbase of twentysomething males.  For some reason that creeps me out! Buggedout

According to an infallible declaration made by the great Counter Reformationist Pope Paul IV in the 16th century, should any Pope advocate heresy, he shall de facto be stripped of his office and the Church be considered devoid of a valid Pope until such time as a lawful successor to Saint Peter be elected. This condition of Papal absence is properly known in Latin as sedevacantism ("empty seat").

Many claim that if this doctrine of Paul IV's were to be strictly interpreted, then it could be said there has been no legitimate Pope since John XXIII's tradition-breaking liberal reforms of Vatican II in the early 1960s, many of which violated earlier points of Canon Law. To apply that doctrine, then each subsequent Pope who took office under the rules of Vatican II, Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and today's Pope Francis, was or is himself an unlawful occupant of the office due to his upholding of heresy.

There are actually an unknown but substantial number of Roman Catholics worldwide who hold the view that there is no Pope, Mel Gibson being one of the more famous of that number.

"It's twistin' time. Let's twist again like we did last summer. Round and round. Up and down."

Old rockers never die. They just go on to perform at the Flower Power Concerts from March to May at EPCOT at Walt Disney World.

One of them being Chubby Checker, who I can remember hearing on the radio over 50 years ago. I wonder if he is still spry enough to do the Twist without throwing his back out.

Another performer will be Herman's Hermits, who I actually planned on going to see a number of years ago, but their concert was canceled because of the lack of ticket sales.

Other performers will include . . .

The Guess Who
Gary Lewis and the Playboys
The Orchestra (remnants of The Electric Light Orchestra)
The Lovin' Spoonful
Paul Revere and the Raiders
The Village People
The Grass Roots
STARSHIP
and Alan Parsons

If any of you are down that way one weekend in March to May, you might stop in,  as the concerts are apparently free, but admission to EPCOT is not.

Also being offered during that time are . . .

A butterfly house
Food and drink booths
A humming bird exhibit
Kids' activities
Talks by the stars of HGTV
and my favorite the toparies.

Next time: if you can't get it there, then get it here.

It took ten hours to put the Robocop suit on the first time.

It was considerably modified after that. 

Also, Robocop was originally intended to move quick and smoothly like Spider-man.  Even after modifications, this proved impossible, so they decided to go in the opposite direction and make him move even MORE slowly and stiffly.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
