Fools. I can't believe none of you know that Foghorns are made out of Leghorns.

Anthony L. I like your answers. Number 1. was Steve McQueen in The Sand Pebbles. Long, sort of boring movie but I liked that for a last line. 6. I was thinking, for no logical reason of Lonnie Donnegan's song, "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavor on the bedpost over night"--sorry about that. Number 2. Warren Oates always tried to give a good performance. I liked him in just about everything but was surprised at how good he was in "The Brinks Job". 9. You are fortunate. Number 10. I would say yes and yes too-but I doubt my ability to actually do better. I seem to be a slow learner, especially about true human nature.

Thanks, Larry. The Sand Pebbles was my first guess. Have a go at MY questions.

Should Texas secede? It's viable - but is it wise?

Irish reader says:
I couldn't answer your questions because I've never had any heroes, and hence no interest in shaking anybody's hand, talking to them, being stranded on a desert island with them etc. Stealing another man's work is pointless (as I'm sure you know) because the pay-off to a well done job is a sense of achievement. Also, fantasy worlds are best appreciated in the context of the here and now because - for all their variety - those worlds were inspired by this one.

As for 3 - well, you just know everybody is going to choose Adolf. Sure, you could try to unravel all the threads of cause-and-effect and pick out some nobody whose life ended up having huge and negative repercussions upon future generations, but you'd need to know your stuff. I'm guessing you already have somebody in mind????

Would that make them eligible for foreign aid? Haven't we had enough troubles with despotisms already?

Anthony L. says:
You never had any heroes? I find that hard to believe. Anyone you admire? Good, but puzzling answers. (Have a little imagination...)
...........................................
I wouldn't choose Adolf.
Sure, the man did terrible, horrendous, acts of war...but, yes, The Butterfly Effect.
If Hitler died, Germany would fall, along with Italy and Japan. They would have poor economies, and THAT would have affected the whole world, since Japan and Germany have two of the MOST PRODUCTIVE economies today.
The world would be absolutely and irreparably different than it is today.

Somebody in mind, nah.

Anthony L. says:
The Texans already consider themselves better than rest of America. They fly the Texan flag higher than The Stars and Bars.

And, NO, it isn't viable, since after the Civil War it became impossible for a state to split from the U.S.A. And, NO, it isn't wise.

Where in Texas are they flying the Stars and Bars?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 5, 2012 7:28:05 PM PDT
Anthony L. says:
Ha ha.
Right. Only in schools I think.

R. Wilde says:
Really? The Confederate Battle Flag?

Granted, I left in 1983 when I graduated, but I don't remember that.

Texas secede? Hell, yeah, in a heartbeat.

Posted on Sep 6, 2012 4:13:41 AM PDT
Anthony L. says:
I guess the question is not - should Texas secede, but what would happen if it seceded.
Would Texas be able to survive?

Irish reader says:
Apparently it would. It has huge resources - e.g. oil.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 6, 2012 4:30:16 AM PDT
And beef.

Posted on Sep 6, 2012 11:51:06 AM PDT
The drought has taken a toll on the cattle industry, oil is finite, and even helium is running out (I understand that Texas is one of the few places in the world where it's found). Want a good laugh? Read the Wiki and LA times articles on Teneha, Texas. Like land-bound Somali pirates.
