Hi mstarn!

Probably THIS ONE? I haven't seen it good, but I hear it's wicked good! It's on my queue.

Cheers!

Oops, it looks like Eoliano beat me to it! Too bad you didn't post this on the anime boards!

Ooh, and a typo... that's what I get for typing and watching "Mean Girls" at the same time...

Well hamano, if it makes you feel any better, your consolation prize is an Eskimo Pie!

Of course we could both be wrong. He might be talking about Nanook of the North, or The Polar Express. That would be pretty embarrassing...

I guess we could be wrong. He might be looking for Map of the Human Heart, Shadow of the Wolf or Kabloonak, those are fairly recent, but then for all we know it could be something older like The White Dawn or The Savage Innocents. Hey, I know, maybe it's Smilla's Sense of Snow!

Which one do you think? And whichever it is, think of the opposite answer, and then that'll be the true choice. Not unless you pick the wrong the one, that is. :)

Try this: Where is Rapa Nui located?

Trick question, it's in the middle of nowhere.

As a tangent, I used to kick it with a Queen of Rapa Nui, who rented a room from my auntie. She was a secretary in the US 9 months of the year. She had bad things to say about the King. And Rapa Nui.

Easy, where do most "rap"pers come from? Either California or New York. Being "Nui" is somewhat of a translation to "New", I'd have to say New York.

On a sidenote: "Parappa the Rapper" is the bomb!!!
