If you wake up at a different time in a different place could you wake up as a different person?

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Final trivia question last night:

Match the robot to the film it comes from
Ash                Alien
Gort               The Day the Earth Stood Still
Maria              Metropolis
Sonny              I, Robot
Huey Dewey Louie  Silent Running
If you wake up at a different time in a different place could you wake up as a different person?

Since this is larger, they can take to calling it the "Max" iPad

There's something delightfully meta about Jesse James getting the idiom wrong in this context:
[i]People[/i] magazine, re Jesse James' upcoming autobiography wrote:For the jacket of the memoir, published by Gallery Books, James steered clear of "some variation of a bad prom photo, serious Thinker pose like most book jackets show," he says, and instead went for an old Western gunslinger look (holding his own .44 Magnum revolver no less). "I just wanted something different. I wasn't going to mail it in."

The 30 scariest movies According to the Houston Chronicle.

The fact that one of the movies is Sinister and opened today, (gee, what a coincidence) is not the reason why they phoned this one in.

It is presented in photo gallery form. I started to read some of the captions and was amazed at the amount of phoning in that was being done.
See: 3. "The Exorcist" (1973): *Photo is of Marquee in Leicester Square in London, 1974
5. "Halloween" (1978): *Photo is from 2007 remake.
8. "The Amityville Horror" (1979): *Photo is from the 2005 remake.
10. "Paranormal Activity" (2007): *Photo is from "Paranormal Activity 2."
11. "The Thing" (1982): *Promotional poster is from the 2011 prequel
22. "When a Stranger Calls" (1979): *Photo is of 2006 remake
27. "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" (1974): *Photo is from 2006 prequel, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning."
This last one didn't even show Leatherface.
