    I have no quarrel with the man, only with the choreographic work as of late.

    To answer Buzz' question: J. K. Rowling's rags-to-riches story is the one I like best.

    most overrated Oscar winner for Best Picture:

    The English Patient
    Titanic
    Shakespeare in Love
    American Beauty

    Chinese. I've never tried food court Thai.

    Morozov-choreographed short programs:

    Kwan's Spartacus
    or
    Cohen's Dark Eyes?

    ETA: This is either the fourth time I've asked this one, or the fifth. :shuffle:

    Archaeopteryx, but all those ancient creatures and plants capture my imagination :inavoid:

    Chemists don't really do jokes, I gather.......

    Worlds 1999:

    Anissina and Peizerat's The Man in the Iron Mask
    or
    Krylova and Ovsiannikov's Modern African Drums (or whatever name you know it by)


    ETA: I look away for two minutes and I'm way behind :lol:

    Unlike most of the audience in Helsinki, I much prefer the latter.

    Anissina and Peizerat's Carmina Burana FD at 2000 Worlds
    or
    their Flamenco OD at the 2002 Winter Olympics?

    2000 FD

    Parallel universe: Sirhan Sirhan is never born. President RFK (1969-77). The world in 2013 is:-

    Very different
    Somewhat different
    Marginally different
    No different

    purple counterfactual thingy :mad:

    I don't get this thread title. Is it a Morozov reference? :confused:

    Favorite collision:
    Midori Ito vs. Laetitia Hubert 1991 Worlds
    Tanja Swezchenko vs Oksana Baiul 1994 Worlds
    Rippon vs. Nan Song 2012 Cup of China

    The title of this thread sounds like a Bones episode: "The Jeffersonian team find a skeleton in a vat of Wesson oil, only to discover it is Florence Henderson..."

    Virgin, only because I am no longer one...

    funniest sounding words:
    flatus
    scrotum
    vulva
    anus
    uvula
    or______________

    Yes. "His Oiliness" is a common nickname for him on this board; the part about the ghost is a reference to this. Also, there was this movie (which I've never seen and almost no one remembers).

    :rofl:

    Scrotum.

    Morphy and Lasker

    1) the scarier of your opponent's pieces:

    knights
    or
    bishops?

    2) When it comes to my pathetic overreliance on ugly Latinisms, of whose avenging wrath should I be the most afraid?

    the ghost of George Orwell
    the ghost of George Carlin
    the non-ghost of orientalplane?
