I applaud those that refuse to commit "intellectual suicide."

Truth, unlike opinion, tradition, etc. will always be able to stand on its own.  Truth is not a static, but a living entity and will perpetually impart life; therefore, any "truth" that does not or can not impart life can not be Truth.

I am persuaded the only reason bad men have succeeded is not because good men have done nothing, but that good men did not do enough.

Permanent = well, you know what it means...
Latrine = a military word for the "privy" or camode...
Orderly = a low-ranking enlisted person, usually involved with the menial tasks.

PLO or Permanent Latrine Orderly was a fictitious job that was created by a not-so-scrupulous sergeant in "No Time For Sergeants" to keep a particular private from causing trouble, get the potty cleaned up and get a decent nights sleep.  The movie is kind of zany, but it's fun.

Ok, what's the next question?

Sure!
What does "TIE" mean?

(no, it being that thing that business men strap around the neck would be to easy tongue)

PS: you don't really have to guess what the abbreviature means, only guess where it's from and where is that used Wink

I imagined it would be too vague. (but a true fan of this hexology *hint* *hint* should know  Wink )
I can also tell you that it's theme is futuristic even though it is said to have happened "a long, long time ago".

Right! I was referring to the TIE fighter smiley
The meaning of TIE is too hard, that's why i said you'd only have to guess where it was used. Here's some description:


BTW... For the lovers of star wars, the StarWars Databank is a complete must. It contains ALL the information you could ever want about star wars.

PS: oh, and nudone: what's the next question? Wink

er, well, i can't think of a single abbreviation that i remember from a film. TIE is a good one as i know it stuck in my mind for a short period of time when i first read the definition somewhere.

the only thing i can think of as i look through my dvd collection is this:

what does the word 'HAL' represent in 'HAL 900'. i know there aren't any philistines around here so you'll know and love the film (and novel).
