I might just do that! Don't hold your breath for the result, though!

you might get started with chastising the brit govt to not exhibit the loot to public - AND charge a fee for it.

I guess Nick may as well apologize for
Britain's thieving present too.

Arcadia is just a racist, jealous foreigner who wish she could live in America! Comments?

You missed my point.

Whoa! There's a surprise! If points were bars, DEWhatever could ride a perfect round.

I don't think Britain is much good at it any longer: I thought USA had taken over. Even in Iraq, UK might be there, but who's going to make all the money out of it?
Anyway, India government is certainly getting it's own back on me expensive visas, higher prices for non-Indians in hotels, exorbitant cost of internal flights etc etc etc. You'll be sorry to hear it hasn't succeeded in putting me off going there ;-)

You missed my point. OP apologized for something he didn't do. He might as we;; apo;ogize for the original sin.

Oops, my bad. I didn't think you Europeans understood sarcasm, since you've often missed it in my own posts.

Whoa! There's a surprise! If points were bars, DEWhatever could ride a perfect round.[/nq]Yet, he still thinks I'm a "master parodyist"! Like Atlantis says, "go figger"! Speaking of Atlantis, is anyone watching "I Love The '90s"? Today, they featured Pretty Woman and talked about how ho-ish Julia Roberts was and how pervy Richard Gere was. They talked about some show called "Twin Peaks". I'd heard of it before, but I don't remember a damn thang about it (OK, I was EIGHT in '90; some of the stuff's gonna still be lost on me). They mentioned In Living Color and showed this really gay-ish skit that they used to do, where these two blacks guys pretend to be gay lovers, and they showed some skit about a "ghetto clown" (AWESOME!).

WEIRD! I used to watch In Living Color once every blue moon, but I don't remember a damn thing about it! I still don't get what a "Fly Girl" is! They had the Guess Jeans ads with Claudia Schiffer & Anna Nicole (Anna Nicole must be OLD I always assumed she was like 35 or so these days). They had Dr. Kevorkian...the poor old man. Vanilla Ice v. MC Hammer. I gotta say Hammer was better since he wasn't a one hit-wonder! "Pumps & The Bumps", "2 Legit 2 Quit", and "Pray" were classics far superior to friggin' "Hammer Time"! Then, MC Hammer gave the top 3 1990 dance jams: "Pump Up The Jam", "Vogue", & "Everybody, Everybody".

OK...if they wanted Madonna, they should've picked "Justify My Love", and if they wanted Black Box, they should've picked "Strike It Up". "Pump Up The Jam" was OK because you still here it today, although "Move It" would've been a good choice too! They showed Goodfellas I've actually never seen it, even though it's sort of a my parents' type-ish movie. I always thought it was from the 70's, like Godfather. DAMN, the 'doo's look dated. They showed Wilson Phillips' "Hold On" video, and a bunch of people made fun of Carnie.

I never really liked Carnie as a singer; still don't. But her talk show was the ! Hopefully, they mention it later on. They had Michael Bolton, and people made fun of his hair. Then, he commented on the top 3 hotties of '90: Robin Givens (wasn't she over by then?), Nicole Kidman (DAMN, she looked nasty and fat!), and Christina Applegate who was just starting in Married With Children (hilarious show). Liz Phair announced the top 3 alternative bands (I was so happy that they chose to do segments on dance AND alternative my 2 favorite types of '90's music...and both only got better & better throughout the decade!): Jane's Addiction, Faith No More, and something I'd never heard of.

They showed Sinead O'Connor and made fun of her crying I was *** that they didn't mention her ripping up the Pope! I wanna see that! (Or does it come later?) They showed the videos for "Groove Is In The Heart" and "Humpty Dance". The lead singer of Anthrax had the nerve to call Dee-Lite a one-hit wonder. It's like, look who's talking! They all made fun of humpty-hump's nose. They played short clips of Ghosts. OK, I've seen the movie, but didn't really remember a damn thing about it.

It looked freaky as all hell. Not in a scary way, but in athese-people-are-psycho-get-me-away-from-them kinda way! Whoopie Goldberg looked ghetto and weird. Patrick Swayze is always weird, regardless, and playing a ghost just makes the whole thing more bizarro! They showed Edward Scissorhands and made fun of him 'cuz he couldn't masturbate. I liked that movie, but, DAMN, I didn't realize it came out in '90! They played clips of Dances With Wolves and dissed Kevin Costner for showing his ass and dancing around all gay.

PLUS, the "Indian" women was the most white thing on the face of the earth! They also had some major of D.C. who was caught smoking CRACK! DAMN!! He could give Whitney Houston a run for the money! I don't remember hearing about that! But...the COOLEST thing about 1990 was the slap-on braclet. I still have 3 of them up in my bedroom, though they're ripped and smelly now! I remembered that whole thing about the girl who died from the braclet. That was so scary! 1990 was COOL! But, I'm still looking forward to '94: Lorenna Bobbit, O.J.

Simpson, AND Tonya Harding all in one year plus the 90's music was at its PEAK that year!

Just send money to Bharat to repay the centuries of indebtedness. You don't have to visit my motherland, do you?

The action in Goodfellas takes place over a pretty long period, from the mid-1950s to about 1980.
