Had a female friend in high school who visited London one summer. She said the hotel asked her if she like someone to "knock her up" in the morning. She was ready to call the police. That means VASTLY different things in our two countries!
At least they were polite enough to ask!

When she got upset did they offer her a fag?
I'm never offered a fag!

Anyhoo, the next episode takes place on the 6th day according to the preview ads.

My family is Pakistani-Canadian, and when one of my older sisters was in England she got the whole "Mind if I bum a fag?" line, not knowing what the heck it meant.

What I really wonder about is whether the whole thing from Arrested Development, about calling someone a pussy in Britain being positive, wasn't just made up.

Just don't tell a woman in London she has a nice fanny.

Can Junior just go upstairs to the bathroom some episode and never return like Chuck Cunningham?

And 15 minutes or so to live and you play Beethoven and Skeeter Davis? Pfft. Should've played In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

But what if she does have a nice fanny?

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

I thought episode 5 was probably the strongest of the bunch. There's still a fair number of bad scenes.

I mean c'mon. The Norrie biological father subplot , make it stop!

The visiting day stuff just drew attention to the fact that there is no reason that the military shouldn't have been writing back and forth with say at least the Chester's Mill PD to get some intel.

Speaking of which the new police chief is taking over as the most completely useless character on the show. She could not decipher military time, and was even the one to ask about it?

Hey Barbie put up this police tape and tell everyone to stay behind it while I do the exact opposite. Thank god superhunk firefighter husband has the non-exploding edition of a Windows tablet.

So long as I'm complaining, I was always under the impression that the MOAB was well... A bomb. You know, more Fatman and Little Boy than ICBM. Dropped out of a big bomber. Not a missile as they kept referring and depicting it. Am I off base here?

Nope, it's a bomb, not a missile. Failure to do even basic fact checking, pretty poor. Drops from a C-130...

Re: Stephen King's Under the Dome - TV Series Discussion Thread

That's silly. I saw the dam busters, why drop a bomb, and risk striking the Dome at a bad angle when they should have just parked a few dozen trucks all around the dome with lots of maternal explosives packed inside?

Maternal explosives?

It's a baldist conspiracy!

The Dome will suffer no other domes.

Big Jim is next.
