Gifts, Contests, Easter Eggs I need everybody's help. I was selected as a finalist for the local science museum's contest to identify the innovation that I would most like to see invented and create a small exhibit about it. I put in a huge amount of effort to make a very well researched and prepared presentation, and even built a kid-friendly museum exhibit and presentation to illustrate my idea. The winner gets a trip to Italy. But get this: it turns out the winner is going to be determined by an easy-to-game online poll. So I feel like an idiot for spending so much effort, because the person with the most Facebook friends is going to win. Please help me fight for justice for voting for my project. (It's project #1). Update: Somebody was stuffing the ballot box, so they enabled some fig-leaf anti-cheating protections and reset the vote.

I didn't know you fancied Tom Cruise.

Hey, I never insulted you!

Tom did great as a Samurai and IIRC he survived while the rest all died!

Tom Cruise was terrible as a samurai.
He should stay away from period pieces. He is unconvincing as somebody who lives in the 19th century.
