  • why do films about ancient rome and sci fi pics speak with an english accent?

    I ask this in jest, but isn't it funny to hear centurions and legionaires spouting off in the kings english, long before the language existed? why not an Italian accent, since that is where center and heart of ancient Rome was, they where Latin not English. also in many sci fi movies many characters sjpeak with a prounonced english accent, especially villians and people over intercoms? whats up with that?? I would like to hear a little French or spanish, maybe even chinese accents , since that is the most spoken language ( over 1/2 the worlds population speaks chinese). to me it's as bad as tom Cruise's american accent in Valkrye, didn't any of the navies notice he wasn't speaking with any german accent at all?? (LOL!) or the Kevin Costner as Robin Hood??? what no english accent?? it's robin Hood, he's 100% English?!? but to the main point why English for Roman movies?? any good guesses? since most are American films, why not have them use a southern Accent or maybe a Brooklyn Accent?? now that would be funny for sure. Southern Centurion: "Hey Ya'll yanto KIck sum Butt for ole Mr Ceasar?.....

  • xbox 360 points, need basic info on?

    xbox 360 gives little info on where to find your points for purchasing of digital items. they say on there official site select market place off your dashboard. there is no place called marketplace, there is video market place and game market place, and when I do check those site, there is no heading of " add points" as they mention there is in market place. in fact the only place points are mentioned is in "my account" and thats just a vague outline of the points system.. so where have the lebrechauns at xbox hidden this magical points folder? and the simplest question, where can see how many jpoints I have purchased or earned, I wold call xbox, but as usual they talk in cirlcles from troubleshooting guides that answer nothing. please explain it simple, no jargon, no presuming I am some kind of game programming guru..just complete step by step info please...thank you...

  • lAWN MOWER BLADE CORRECT ATTACHMENT DIRECTION?

    I hace a Push lawnmower, name brand is "WHITE" it has a 6.50 hp tecumseh engine, my question is which way does the blade attach to the blade attachment , in that it fits either way, and the book that comes with it, does not specify at all, it just says re-attach after sharpening, but I got it used, without the blade, bought a blade, and no directions on blade, the picture in the book does not show any details of the blade to deternine which way it goes on. to "Cut" not "mulch" do the bent sides along th center of the blade face the ground or the bottom of the mower deck, like I said, I want to "cut" not mulch. please don't say the end tips should face up, becuase this happens no matter which way you flip the blade, since it a duel action blade, do those bend face down, to protect the bolt head from ground debris? or face up, to lock it better on the blade adapter? just alittle baffled, thank you.

  • Do portugues consider themselves hispanic?

    Now in my family, that is a definate: NO, in fact they where all very adament about this fact, they where not of Spanish origin, not Latin in ancestry and therefor not hispanic or latino. the Moors heavily occupied portugal for centuries, but my family wa from the Mederias islands, they where tall, lean and had dark complexion and very dark wavy hair, I don't konw if they where just pride in the national borders or is this a valid point, that they are not hispanic or latino? anyone know the offical or "unofficial" opinion on this, especially in portugal today.

  • Royal navy Histroic figure inquiry?

    I am looking for information on a picture I saw in a book over 35 years ago, I don't remember the book title , all I remember is that there was a picture, possible of a painting, of a young Royal navy cadet, apprentice,mascot, etc. The "lad" was a young teen I believe, and he went down with a ship, manning a gun to the last, I believe it was a smaller ship, maybe a corvette or gun boat of some type. Very dramatic painting and story, but I cannot for the life of me remember anymore, only that it was possible between the the mid 1800s and WWI, after his death, He was awarded some major service medal or given some other award in recognition of his sacrifice. can anyone give me a possible lead on this person? I'm an American, I know longer live anywhere near where I grew up and read that book from a library . and my resources on Royal naval history are pretty far and few and in between, where I reside now. appreciate any info on this you can share.

  • Have you ever been to the Battle of Little Big Horn site?

    I've been there twice, the last time I spent all day there, just looking around on my own, and trying to get a feel for the on that day from either side of the battle. And wondering how it was not what most thought it would be like, it has a mood of it's own, it does not glorify the Battle, it does not favor the Calvary troops or the Indian warriors, It seems to invites you to make your own decision, truely unbiased, the site is mostly cared for by the tribe that includes the decendents of the scouts who served with Custer ,who fought against other tribes,and many died with The US troops on that day in June of 1876, with this background I can see why it has that in-between view, which is a real breath of fresh air considering how much people want to blame others these days for the events in the past, they we have no control over, so what do you think of the site? I think it it's a solumn place, and provikes me to see the bigger picture of a differnt time and place.
