'Barfly' was an iconic Mickey Rourke movie and I am almost blown away that you saw it and liked it SlapDiddy! I think that you have dated yourself a bit by this comment though.
Let me see, I saw this movie about 20 years ago so you are probably in the age group of 30-50. Your writing and manic style of hosting threads here suggests obsessive compulsive disorder which suggests to me that you are younger than me (not sure why). The OCD suggests that you are a management consultant or in a salesman of some kind, perhaps even an IT sailnutter. I am guessing you have an MBA or always wanted to get one.
So how close is the 50 y.o. cat boy hitting close to home? I am not a psychologist or a fortune teller but I bet that I am about half right.
ssw914,
The seal's death was unfortunate but you did not have much choice now, did you? Had you taken it for it's skin and meat like the Esquimos then Greenpiece would not be pissed. Too bad about that but great story and glad your son is on solid ground wanting to get back on board.
Carry on.

sww - You got it goin' on, dude. Sweet retort.

Caleb - we had to watch it in film class - along with all of David Lynch's crap from the '80s. Man you geezers were twisted. Speaking of OCD - I ain't Surfesq - for the 1,000th time. Now will you please let it go? Are you still going to bill me for the therapy session?

PS - I'd consider myself more "obsessive-impulsive". You know, the kind of guy that buys a really old sailboat on impluse, then spends the rest of his life obsessively working on it and learning to sail it. I figure I'm in a "safe place" here. Heh-heh.

Yes smack, we are going to bill you for the therapy session, as you have the ages ALL wrong. it goes like this........

0-12 you learn all you need to know about life
13-19, you know everything, so we need to hire you at that time!
20-29 you realize you do NOT know everything, and parents are smarter than you thought
30-39 most of us get old, as in we have kids in the 0-12 range
40-49, we;re really OLD, as we have teenagers in the house to tell us what we do not know
50-59 you get to live again, as them twenty somethings are appoligizing for there friggen teen yrs, and telling you how smart you are
60-69 are the golden years
70-79 you;re an old phart
80-89 a really old phart
90-99 are the depends yrs, ie do you need them or not!

That'll be $1 boat unit, please pay at the receptionist at the door. If you leave without paying, we know 55+ different countries worth of Guido's to hunt, chase and mangle you bringing you back for justice!

marty...another "version" from Billy Crystal in City Slickers:

When you're a teenager you think you can do anything, and you do. Your twenties are a blur. Your thirties, you raise your family, you make a little money and you think to yourself, "What happended to my twenties?" Your forties, you grow a little pot belly you grow another chin. The music starts to get too loud and one of your old girlfriends from highschool becomes a grandmother. Your fifties you have a minor surgery. You'll call it a procedure, but it's a surgery. Your sixties you have a major surgery, the music is still loud but it doesn't matter because you can't hear it anyway. Seventies, you and the wife retire to Fort Lauderdale, you start eating dinner at two, lunch around ten, breakfast the night before. And you spend most of your time wandering around malls looking for the ultimate in soft yogurt and muttering "how come the kids don't call?" By your eighties, you've had a major stroke, and you end up babbling to some Jamaican nurse who your wife can't stand but who you call mama. Any questions?

Giu,

I took a look at the website and tried the Google translation. Here's an actual sample of what I got:

"Impact gives 1st hair world voyage"

Something tells me that's not quite right. It's almost like Google doesn't think Portuguese is a real language. You might want to have a word with Larry and Sergey.

That's real strange. I could actually understand quite a bit of what was written, with big gaps of course, but more than I thought I might.

Yeah - Charlie, it was my bad. I was trying the translation from Early Latin to English. Oops. Just saw an opportunity to try to get Giu to do a Photoshop job on the founders of Google.
