Thought i'd continue the trend of another thread. Theres not many canadian ones on the dumb laws website but heres a few..

Citizens may not publicly remove bandages

Wooden logs may not be painted.

If you are released from prison, it is required that you are given a handgun with bullets and a horse, so you can ride out of town


These are clearly not enforced. lol

So, if you had been given a hand gun with bullets and a horse when you were released from prison, would you have left town?

What were you in prison for anyway???

Quite a few years back, my cousin who lives in VA got out of the Marines & was heading back to college and working at a local Domino's. He was in his mid-20s and became quite taken with one of his co-workers who was 17. After dating a while he wondered what the local underage statutes might be, just to avoid trouble. So he looked up the Virginia laws. Apparently it's legal to have sex with a girl as young as 13, as long as you're married. That didn't apply. So a little further study found that sex outside of marriage is illegal, at any age, even consenting adults. I guess they aren't enforcing that either.

So, were you the inspiration for the Log Lady on "Twin Peaks"?

Age of consent here is 14, and honestly at 14 you are old enough to know what you want. you might regret it but your still old enough to know the consequences at that age before you make the decision. Then again there shouldn't be an age it should be judged on a case by case basis. Theres 14 year olds with the mind of a 5 year old out there.

Holy Crap! You're right. Why didn't I see it before! But she would've only been a little sh...tyke at the time. Hmmmmm.....

I was kidding, i've heard of it but have never seen it...i was 5. Most people my age wouldnt have heard of it though but seeing as all I ever do is watch "old" tv shows I knew.

Well, dearie, get a slice of cherry pie and put on a pot of coffee and spend a couple days in a TW marathon. It get's loopy in season 2, but it's time well spent. Though you'll need more than one slice of pie and more than one pot of coffee...

I can say that I have had a slice of cherry pie at the cafe in the show. It was good too!

I loved, loved, loved "Twin Peaks". At the time, one of the most interesting shows to have appeared on TV.

I'll watch almost anything but this might be "too old" for me. I hate the old grainy look on the early 90's stuff.

You should at least watch season 1. it is classic tv.

Well I am certainly not going to watch half of something. Just won't happen. It'll be a while if i eve watch it at all though. I'm about 2/3rds through season 1 of third watch and theres 6 seasons. Just finished oz earlier this week...AMAZING show.

Season one and two are each standalone and to be honest season two jumped the shark.

TerryE
03-09-2012, 09:17 PM
It's been a while since I watched, but I seem to remember the Laura Palmer story continuing into the first part of Season 2, then the other story starting and that's when they kinda lost it.

The killer was unmasked at the end of season one, but got away. Lynch released dreative crotrol shortly after season 2 began and things got a little crazy (as if they weren't already), spiraling towards a season finale made in hopes of getting a season 3. No such luck. But it's a fun, trippy ride all the way!

It sounds stupid. like a soap

TerryE
03-09-2012, 09:49 PM
Yes, there were some soap elements to it, but like the mystery, police procedure, and comedy elements, they were all turned on their ear to make something entirely unique.

Haha. Hadn't heard of him until he was recently mentioned here. I can only assumed he worked on twin peaks in some way. Lol. I could google him but I rather enjoy how young your making me feel today by talking about stuff I'm too young to remember. Haha.

David Lynch. Director of such classic movies as Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, and Mullhand Drive.

Only two of which I've even heard of and haven't seen the two I did.

Have found David Lynch to be an acquired taste. Have found there to be no middle ground - people either love his work or can't stand it. For me Mulholland Drive is one of the best pieces of film ever produced. The only one I have not seen is Inland Empire. Have heard very mixed reviews and it is supposedly his most obscure work yet (and that's saying something)

Mulholland Drive is indeed a gerat movie. I'm more of the Blue Velvet ilk, but enjoy both.

Ah yes. Blue Velvet. Who could forget the movie that showed us Kyle MacLachlan's penis :)

That scene was brilliant! Blue Velvet was also my introduction to David Lynch. I heard about it from some coworkers who set the scene as such. "There's this kid who's home from college and he's walking through a field and finds a person's ear. And it gets stranger from there." I've been hooked ever since.

And you forgot to mention the most wonderful non-Lynchian Lynch movie The Straight Story. It really doesn't have much in common with the rest of his films, but lots of little Lynch touches throughout.
