Quote from: Sichuan on September 21, 2012, 06:40:38 PMHow it Began by Chris Impey was a good read. If you like science documentaries, this is a solid book. I learned new stuff that's not quite covered in a lot of the nonspecialist books about astronomy/physics.
Quote from: Sidsel Roine on September 01, 2011, 02:03:22 PMI saw Gordon Lightfoot last summer. His band was in top form. Lightfoot, however, sounded a little shaky. Don't know how much longer he will be around. I also got into Gordon Lightfoot because I heard "If You Could Read My Mind" as one of Art's bumpers. Fell in love with the man's music, own all of his albums. Now I need to track this interview!
Quote from: Silent on January 03, 2011, 08:02:38 PMI'm not sure it qualifies as a topic but I love the guests with crazy ideas or stories. The ones where it's obvious that Art doesn't believe them but keeps on asking fun questions. The key to these for me are that the guest has to sound like they really believe their own ideas or stories. Sometimes Art can throw a really odd question at the guest that they weren't prepared for. The good guests can pull the strangest answers out of their ass and make their stories even better. If you pay close attention during these interviews you can pick up on when Art will pause for a bit and i'm pretty sure he's trying to figure out how to corner these people with their own answers. It's like a cat and mouse game.Guests like that are pretty rare. As a backup answer I'll say anything related to science and space.

Quote from: Skunk Ape on March 10, 2015, 05:28:16 PMWell some people appreciate getting autographed pieces of sticky paper to place in their books. Kinda almost like getting the book signed from across the globe. Edit:I'm one of those people..
Quote from: sleeplessinca on April 13, 2013, 05:22:15 PMMy dad was a radar tech on the southern coast of GB during WW2. He turns 90 this May. My icon is in his honor.He has lots of great stories of what he feels was the most exciting part of his life and one some of you might like involves a buzzbomb. He was driving on top of a berm and having the time of his life because he rarely got to drive. Just then someone in the vehicle said to get off the road. He did just in time to see a buzzbomb go by. He said it flew about 4 or 5 feet above the road. He was close enough to see the rivets. It made a terrible racket - which is a good thing because the thing blows up when the noise stops.They would also see squadrons of Axis planes headed for London - they went right over the top secret radar installation and didn't seem to know what it was. He also would hear the giant guns fire across the English Channel. He has so many awesome stories.
Quote from: slippingaway on July 11, 2015, 11:30:28 PMI've heard all sorts of trips. I remember an old broadcast where Art was talking about going into Communist China, cruises to Alaska, Egypt, etc. Man oh how I would love to go. I'm pretty sure his fans would end up bugging him to the point that he'd be hiding out. Superfans might just spoil the trip for him.
Quote from: slipstream on May 23, 2008, 06:18:15 PMI bought the Art of Talk back in the day. This one has Art's autograph. I've wanted to buy other items, usually radios, but I never did.
Quote from: GravitySucks on April 24, 2017, 03:31:29 PMI didn't vote for him to speak like a politician reading a teleprompter. I voted for him to keep Clinton out of office, get a conservative on the supreme court and enforce immigration law. So far he is doing what I hired him to do. If he destroys the establishment on both sides of the aisle, that will be gravy.

Quote from: Smoky on June 21, 2009, 12:37:25 AMI've been sued a few times and the idea is to not be intimidated by lawyers and their threats. It's just a bunch of hot air. It's unfortunate they are able to threaten good hard working people who eventually give in because they don't want the grief. If it was a poker game you should call and then raise...then watch them fold.

Should I add anything?Drink whenever:*Scully or Mulder hang up the phone without saying goodbye to reach other*Scully or Mulder point a gun at each other, or Skinner, or Skinner points a gun at one of them*Mulder has his shirt off*Scully says, "Mulder, where are you going?"*Mulder does a dick joke or sexual innuendo one liner*Scully gets jealous bc Mulder is flirting with another girlTake a shot whenever:*Mulder sees something paranormal, and then Scully walks in seconds too late to see anything*Scully or Mulder wake up in a hospital*Scully or Mulder says goodbye on the phone (does it even happen??)
Quote from: somatichypermutation on January 14, 2013, 03:37:09 AMPeople who drink raw milk have never been to a farm. These are not idyllic farms where animals are milked by hand. These are operations where hundreds or thousands of females are milked a day, where these femals come in from a muddy field where the cow has laid or walked in mud that includes their own feces, the udders are given a quick disinfecting wipe and hooked up. Aint no way this is sterile. The cow is machine milked through a huge system of pipes that are not sterilized to manufacture instructions as that costs money. Drinking raw milk would be akin to drinking raw water, meaning water from puddles.This was Ian's topic last night, maybe he is getting more like George. Too bad.

Quote from: SomeVelvetMorning on May 17, 2011, 10:11:28 PMOf course we also have the theory that the Roswell crash was a post WWII Nazi experiment. According to the theory the Nazis who escaped to Argentina were behind the early UFO sightings and the pass over the White House in July of 1952 was their way of saying "You really did not win the war after all." Joseph Ferrell is an author who has advanced many of these theories.
Quote from: spellerine on March 07, 2015, 07:45:48 PMInstead of changing the clocks, why don't they just do what they really mean and shift all jobs, TV and radio schedules, and other "real" world daily events to begin an hour earlier or later in Spring and Fall. I suppose that would be too much trouble?
Quote from: Spikegirl on April 15, 2008, 06:22:38 PMI was logged in today and it said 1 spider was also logged on along with the guests and users. What's a spider. I thought it was a joke when I first read it, but wonder is this spyware?

Quote from: Spinner on September 11, 2010, 11:59:54 PMI just can't stomach Lionel Fanthorp, Steve Quayle, Jerome Corsi, and Whitley Streiber. Particularly Lionel Fanthorp - OMG!!! What a windbag!And I can't stand shows about EVP, so if I know that will be the topic, I just tune out.C2C has probably had hundreds of nutjobs and BS artists (Ed Dames, the Zeta-talk woman, Sylvia Browne, Michael Horne, etc., etc.) but I don't mind them - they can be very entertaining. But listening to people like Fanthorpe, Corsi and Quayle, and the EVP shows make me want to take a baseball bat to my radio. Ugh!There are probably others I'm forgetting.

Quote from: pyewacket on December 22, 2022, 08:22:18 PMHi Rix - Here's a joke you might like.Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.She emphatically told George and several others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house............. and left it there all night.

Quote from: Rix Gins on December 23, 2022, 12:00:28 AMOh, that's a good one. Yes, I like it and it was well worth the wait. Merry Christmas!
Quote from: The General on June 04, 2014, 04:15:36 PMThe History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon.I got through it, but damn. I was a fractured man for weeks.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on February 22, 2015, 04:39:18 AMI am genuinely impressed that there are people on this forum who have read Gibbon. There are some books that are so long that you feel you have to give them a go before you eventually check out. There are some long stretches of tedium in it, and then you will find a phrase that sticks in your head, or a footnote that makes you smile unexpectedly. That said, it is not particularly approachable and you will need a lot of willpower to plough your way through it all. Likewise with Proust, there are very good bits, but a couple of volumes are about as close to unreadable as you could get. Albertine is the most tedious figure in fiction. The fact I always remember about Gibbon is that he suffered from elephantiasis of the testicles.Anyway, thought I'd try and resurrect this thread - people made some good points on it.
Quote from: Starbreaker on December 19, 2011, 04:22:28 PMThis guy told the most entertaining story I had ever heard on C2C. His story about time travel and Project Pegasus had me hook, line, and sinker.Then... he had to come back and talk about going to Mars with Barry Obama. He should have kept his mouth shut.
