    Bandy, you're talking about the 1982 version with Kurt Russell??</P>


    How about the realoriginal, when I was 5, 1951, with James Arness (Gunsmoke). That is the Original... Black and White.</P>

    It's incredible, Ban. Last night I read a list of movies in production, or recently announced.http://movies.about.com/od/moviesinp...nced_Films.htm The number of films coming out based on TV shows is staggering. There are remakes of movies going back to Chaplin's silent film, "The Dictator" (that's from memory, but I think it's right!. I'll check sources and post the link.</P>

    I was wrong. It was Chaplin's, "The Great Dictator," and it was 1940 (IMdB). </P>

    never bothered. (Green Lantern) I am a Marvel Comics guy, BUT I am also a Batman and Green Lantern fan. (plus the Green Arrow is waaaaaay cooler than Hawkeye); but Marvel's my main dish.

    I saw cool looking CGI for GL but I just wasn't impressed enough to go see it.

    I watched both the "Thing From Outer Space" original "Thing"

    and John Carpenter's (?) "Thing" with kurt russel.

    that version was twisted. I liked it more but damn did it freak me out.

    you guys have heard about that Large Hadron Collider over in Europe? they thought they had stuff go faster than light a couple weeks ago. Anyone thought about having all those magnets in one place for a long time...
    I googled it and got their public statement on the project ... scared me even more. I have no clue but my instincts say lots of magnets aren't a good thing, anyways picked these lines out

    27kms of magnets, they say theres a big hole in our magnetosphere...wonder if this did it


    They are guided around the accelerator ring by a strong magnetic
    field, achieved using superconducting electromagnets. These are built
    from coils of special electric cable that operates in a superconducting
    state, efficiently conducting electricity without resistance or loss of
    energy. This requires chilling the magnets to about -271C a temperature colder than outer space!

    Thousands of magnets of different varieties and sizes are used
    to direct the beams around the accelerator. These include 1232 dipole
    magnets of 15 m length which are used to bend the beams, and 392
    quadrupole magnets, each 57 m long, to focus the beams. Just prior to
    collision, another type of magnet is used to 'squeeze' the particles
    closer together to increase the chances of collisions<a href="%20They%20are%20guided%20around%20the%20acce lerator%20ring%20by%20a%20strong%20magnetic%20fiel d,%20achieved%20using%20superconducting%20electrom agnets.%20These%20are%20built%20from%20coils%20of% 20special%20electric%20cable%20that%20operates%20i n%20a%20superconducting%20state,%20efficiently%20c onducting%20electricity%20without%20resistance%20o r%20loss%20of%20energy.%20This%20requires%20chilli ng%20the%20magnets%20to%20about%20%C3%A2%C2%80%C2% 91271%C3%82%C2%B0C%20%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%93%20a%20temp erature%20colder%20than%20outer%20space%21%20%20Th ousands%20of%20magnets%20of%20different%20varietie s%20and%20sizes%20are%20used%20to%20direct%20the%2 0beams%20around%20the%20accelerator.%20These%20inc lude%201232%20dipole%20magnets%20of%2015%20m%20len gth%20which%20are%20used%20to%20bend%20the%20beams ,%20and%20392%20quadrupole%20magnets,%20each%205%C 3%A2%C2%80%C2%937%20m%20long,%20to%20focus%20the%2 0beams.%20Just%20prior%20to%20collision,%20another %20type%20of%20magnet%20is%20used%20to%20%27squeez e%27%20the%20particles%20closer%20together%20to%20 increase%20the%20chances%20of%20collisions%20%20ht tp://public.web.cern.ch/public/en/lhc/HowLHC-en.html">

    weird they only give the length of magnet, wonder the width and depth of these things
