Re: I need a book recommendation (Renamed : Recom'd me a book)

Chevalier's definition of "not for a pre-teen" seems to encompass many of my 9 year old's current favourites. YMMV, of course. Of course, my opinion is most likely biased; I worked for Border's bookstore for years and was often disappointed with the pathetically few number of younger indi...

Yes, but can't we expect similar rulings to be passed in Supreme Courts around the world? I'm sure reality show participants worldwide might want a bit of what their French counterparts now have.. At least in the U.S. hell no. Seriously, it's France they don't let people work more than 35 hours a w...

Re: After Last Season

This has to be either a joke or purposefully artsy and ironic. There's no way a group of people could really try to make a movie and come up with this. The weird thing is that according to IMDb some of the actors seem to be actual professionals.
