How does stripping Prince Andrew of his titles affect his children? Are they still part of the royal family? Do they still hold titles?

We’ve had a couple nights dip into the 20s, but no precipitation accompanied them.
Finnish weather for the past few weeks and the forecast for the next few:

We're expecting rain transitioning to snow on Sunday. How much of which depends on how cold it gets and how soon. This is how the snow storm in '82 started. If that's the case we could see a foot or more.

I just heard of an awesome movie pitch.

A dragon appears in modern day England. Dragons can only be killed by actual knights.
A group of knights consisting of the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Dame Hellen Mirren, Sir Patrick Stewart, and Sir Ian Mckellen have to slay the dragon.

Kids say the darndest things:

My friend was shopping with her 9 year old. He sees everyone buying milk, bread, and eggs. He asks " Why is everyone buying stuff to make French toast?"

Where I live if there is a mention of snow on the news people rush the stores to buy milk, eggs, and bread. It never fails. Even in the summer if the bread aisle is low I'll ask if we're expecting snow.

You'd think people in New England would know better than that, but it's just as ridiculous up here - whenever they start talking about more than six inches of snow or hyping up whatever they're calling the latest big storm, people start buying bottled water and bread. Which is at least sensible, if panicky and overly paranoid. And then they go buy a bunch of perishable crap they won't be able to cook if they lose power.

If I were the Queen, I would just knight a bunch of fighter pilots or something. Although yeah, I know that totally ruins the premise of the movie and means you wouldn't be able to have a movie with a bunch of old, famous people. Cause yeah, I am sure a lot of people would pay to see that movie.

Perhaps the “magic” of that dragon’s defense would be tied to the ritual of knighting. The knight in question would have to have actually DONE something to earn the knighthood as opposed to merely being knighted in anticipation of worthy service. This would be a plot point.

So, the newest RAF fighter pilots wouldn’t be able to do a damn thing on their own, but Sir Bob Geldof could organize “DragonAid”, creating a massive concert that was a bardic ritual to aid the country in its anti-dragon campaign.

(At the peak, maybe he performs a duet of “Avalon” with Brian Ferry to rouse the spirit of King Arthur & his crew. Possibly other knightly spirits as well.)

I really wish everyone found me as funny as I find me. In my head I'm freaking hilarious. It seems in the outside world, not so much.

Sure, if we're going to have magic dragons and magic knights, we might as well put restrictions on the magic. But no, I get it. There HAS to be some sort of rules. Otherwise... who would you have to knight on that nuclear submarine to allow the missiles to hurt the dragon? Kind of reminds me of the movie Suckerpunch... would could have been a great movie if the false advertising hadn't made that movie to appear to be one thing and then was actually something else. That was a decent dragon fight scene.

You know... even without special rules, there really needs to be more badass fight scenes with dragons. I'm not sure there's any movie that wouldn't be improved by a badass dragon fight scene.

Honestly, I feel like everyone is like that, including well-known comedians. Yeah, we laugh at a lot of their jokes because they are generally funny, but even they have jokes that just don't work, but until they realize no one is laughing, they think the joke is hilarious in their head. So I wouldn't feel too bad. :)

You know, I remember the name and I am almost positive I've seen it.... but I can't remember a single thing about that movie.
Christian Bale and Mathew McConaughey fighting dragons in the modern world. The dragons could only eat the ashes of things they burned.

How about this; the release date was my birthday in 2002. I probably went to see it for my birthday.

I can think of a few.*

“The piano stays on the beach!”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“Oh crap, everybody run!”

***

“Open the pod bay door, Hal.”
“I’m afraid I can’t do that, Dave.”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“WTF?” (in unison)

***
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“I’ll have what the lady on the floor is having.”

***
“Houston, we have a problem.”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
