Seems to be your favourite word. Puts you in a league with Homer Simpson's "Doh!"

Nah, it puts the receiver in the league they belong in.

A marginally refined "No, you are!" playground taunt. :mrgreen:

I'd advise you to stop trying to appear intellectual and superior using your "Duh". It hasn't worked for you, and it's not likely to in the future.

I am not so fake that I "try to appear" anything.
Frankly, you are just a dumb ass and I like to point that out until you get it.

I'm with Brenda on this one. Any sensible adult knows that "based on actual events" means those events inspired the movie, it's not a totally accurate account. (Lincoln, I've heard, also takes some license with "the truth." ) Non-sensibel adults probably think ET was a documentary too.

And of course there are many different views of what the "truth" is. As Canadians we've probably been fed a rah rah Canada version as much as the Americans get rah rah US. Can't see getting all fussed up about this.

I suppose that can happen from time to time. :wink:

Merely commenting on something doesn't mean "getting all fussed up about it" though.

Really? :mrgreen:

I haven't seen anything as formidable as Gunnair (before he clipped his own wings), but I'll have to take your word on it and see if anything significant comes down the pipe. :)

Another stupid (but with a bit of truth) comment...

I guess those who believe that movies "based on actual events" accurately depict what really happened, are the same people who believe that "reality" TV is real.


As for me, I can't wait to see the movie, "The life and times of Honey Boo Boo"... I heard that it's based on actual events.

Here's more on what is really a re-write of history by the film - historic revisionism that as a Canadian I find disappointing...
