    I can't believe this movie was a box office flop.

    I understand why. It was a Henson movie but not for kids (though I was watching it when I was 6 or 7 as soon as it came out on VHS) so it probably confused most people.

    But man there's never been anything quite like it.
    I went back with a few friends after remembering how awesome it was as a kid.

    I couldn't stand it. I shut it off after 20 minutes.

    It didn't age well with me, apparently.

    I've heard other people say that, too.

    Labyrinth definitely aged a lot better... but... I dunno. I guess I have a soft spot for this movie.

    As a side note, I've been on a "WWII planes were awesome" binge, as you may be able to divine from the first post of this thread. The FW-190 with the Mk. 108 cannons was the best plane of the war, hands down.

    I've picked up the phrase "no worries" ever since I was in Australia. We also need an equivalent to "mate." Any substitutes we have sound stand-offish, like "bro" or "pal."

    Also, Doc, just so you can be jealous: I play in an annual poker tournament in an airport hangar. The dude who owns a hangar keeps his restored WWII-era plane in there (I believe it's a P-51 Mustang), and takes it out every once in awhile. It's pretty fucking cool.

    I'm not sure where I picked up "no worries" (probably here) but I use it a lot, too.

    That'll do it.

    I am pretty interested in that kinda shit. I came across this TV show on the history channel the other week talking about famous dogfights from WWII, with the actual surviving fighter pilot talking about it.

    One episode talked about a B-17 Flying Fortress that had been upgraded with 6 or 7 extra guns and took out something like seventeen enemy fighters in a single sortie.

    Now that's insane.

    This is the sort of stuff I like as well. All that crazy stuff that hardly anyone ever talks about, like how one of the greatest painters of all time(I forget which one, possibly Da Vinci or Michelangelo or however you spell it) designed a gun that could be fired one-handed, which was used in a key assassination of the time. Or how the battle of Midway was a battle in which neither ship actually saw eachother and met in direct combat, they just launched their planes and THEY fought.

    The history channel rocks.

    The shells for the 30mm were pulled instead of cast, which meant that the jackets around the explosive or incendiary material could be much thinner. Bam, more explosive power. In addition, the rounds sometimes had hydrostatic fuses, which meant that the round would wait until it had penetrated the fuel tanks before exploding.

    Or maybe I'm just really easily entertained.

    Polish fighter pilots were batshit crazy.

    They fought the germans in total shitbombs but they figured ouyt how to break even, they waited until they were right up to the enemy before firing. they brought that over to the modern planes of the british with great success. They damn near never missed, also, due to them flying like a crack addicted wasp they rarely got shot themselves.
