"gulch" is kh code for where she is...she doesn't always have access to movies like we have here, but she has other things we don't have so...it all squares out.
We get to chase a roach out of our kitchen...she gets to chase a Gila monster.
Where ya been Rocky?
BTW: I didn't mean to come across as dissing KH's Gultch...I am very jealous.
If it wasn't illegal to own a Gila monster, I would be 'walking' mine every morning! I give up trying to get the collar on my roach....
There's no T in gulch!
I didn't think you dissed anything. :)
Want to hear something strange? I smoked a pipe for the last 40 years, and it stayed in my mouth during the last few years that I have been retired.
I put it away the same day as the gin, and I haven't really missed it as of the last few weeks.
I even ran across one of my pipes today, that still had half a bowl of my favorite tobacco in it. I looked at it...closed my eyes, and took a wonderful sniff...knocked the tobacco out...and added the pipe to my bagged collection. And no one was around to see if I held my resolution....
no community vote in here-have you been listening? Individuals making their own decisions based on rational self interest. I look forward to your reviews weekly

There is no better way to deliver a compliment. Well, that is if that was what you were going for. Do you know of any movies that deal with rational self interest which would be good for review? Besides Atlas Shrugged of course.
Fast forward...and he does a complete 180. Even to the point that he cries out at the ending that he overlooked sacrificing his gold ring...and feels the failure for that oversight.
It seems that his "sacrifice" is no more a sacrifice of rational self interest than the raid of the Gulchers to rescue Galt from the government. They risked their lives but they did not view it as sacrificing their self interest.
Or the Founders pledging to risk their lives, their liberty, and their sacred honor?
Just a few thoughts IMO.
Galt was the founder of the Gulch, and of great personal interest to his rescuers. Schindler was neither a Jew, nor had any personal connections to the people that he ends up saving. He has a complete transformation....
For instance: Hannibal Lecter can only shut off the inner voices that torment him, by killing another human being. It is in Hannibal's self interest to do this, and Hannibal could probably convince just about anyone how rational this remedy is to him.
V for Vendetta, Enemy of the State, Sound of Music, Bourne Identity series, Taken, Rob Roy, The Patriot...I have to think on this...I'll get back to you..,
