Okay, it's a coding problem, but...

"A Justice League Movie cant be done Justice"

"I as a life long comic fan (Geek and Proud) have waited to see all my heroes don the big screen."

I think this means they pull the screen down and wear it like a cape.
:wink:

Apparently we're in danger of a world wine shortage, and 'prices could sore'.

Was great to spend time with you to mate.


What a difference a single letter makes!

In The Guardian today, about Lonesome George, the giant tortoise's demise.
Quote:
I travelled out to the Galápagos to report on the sombre mood after George's death and had the unsettling experience of seeing him once more, his carapace by then unceremoniously bubble-wrapped and duck-taped in an Electrolux freezer.

That's just quackers, I always thought it was duct-tape...

Oddly enough, I use duct-tape a lot. Most sellers have started calling it things like "cloth-tape" as there's a suprising number of people who either can't say the t in "duct" or think it's "duck".

Sorry, Bob, Jo - not a typo! Calling it duck tape is totally fine.
