    Jade! You didn't voted for mine. Now, look what you've done...

    :_|



    :p


    Wedge, I've almost hit yours. It just sounded a bit suspicious somehow. Ok, not that the Astronautic thing was right. :p

    Hazel, just don't forget to tell us what the other side of the coin is. [face_batting] ;)


    I wouldn't be able to come up with such a medical term, Wedge. So, nicely done!! :D

    Round Four
    The movie "The Next One" is about...

    ...The story of a thirty-ish year-old man that is trying to create the next hit reality show of America.

    ...A would-be entrepreneur goes after one get-rich scheme/idea after another, but the promise of wealth is illusory. Then he learns a valuable lesson: that family is of higher priority and not to squander his hopes and emotional energy in false hopes, but to appreciate what he already has.

    ...A troubled teen is visited by the spirit of her long-lost grandmother, who tells her to find a treasure that she left behind in a basement in Brooklyn, New York in the late 1930's.

    ...Corruption surrounding the selection of the next Pope.

    ...Tragic romantic movie about a woman basically looking for the perfect man, dumping one man after another, since The Next One will be the perfect one. In the end she realizes that there's no perfect man, which changes her mind, but all 'almost perfect' man got happy with another woman already, so the movie ends with her being alone.

    ...Hard to believe story of a widow who finds a futuristic man washed up on the beach of a Greek island.

    24 hours to post what you think the correct answer is in the thread. Good luck! :)

    Round Five
    On June 19, 1910...

    ...A light bulb in a factory got installed. It was never turned off because of being a special signal for the employees. This would not be very interesting, if it would not be still burning now, over 100 years later.

    ...First silent movie premiere.

    ...Construction of the Titanic started.

    ...The first transistor radio was invented.

    ...The first Ford Model T that was a color besides Black rolled off the production line (it was green)

    ...Father's Day was made official in America.

    24 hours to post what you think the correct answer is in the thread. Good luck! :)

    Btw that one with the light bulb is true, just not the exact date. But there's a light bulb that was turned on about 100 years ago and is still burning. It was on tv not too long ago.
