Instead of seeing the 'man in the moon', some people see a Rabbit making rice cakes (Now I can't help but see that when I look at the moon...couple pictures on google will help with the image)

<ranger-rules>darkdemon34 with the win on question #2

In 1996, Mustang fans were expecting the 5.8L, 351 inĀ³ V-8 to make its return to the regular production. However, this is not what they got. In the GT, the 5.0 engine was replaced by a 215 hp 4.6 L SOHC "Modular" V8 engine.

(darkdemon) $15000 -- trivia #4 12:27 PM EDT

Pitcairn Island was discovered in 1767 by the British and settled in 1790 by the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions. Pitcairn was the first Pacific island to become a British colony (in 1838) and today remains the last vestige of that empire in the South Pacific. - the CIA world factbook

Question #5
What is the name of the vampire (Movie name or actor's name, either answer counts) in the movie "Moon Child"?

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 15 2006 12:31 PM EDT

Kei

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 15 2006 12:31 PM EDT

or Hyde w/e

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] April 15 2006 12:40 PM EDT

Hideto Takarai

Tomoyoshi April 15 2006 12:44 PM EDT

on another level it's about the transience of life and the value of happiness, which is shown to us through the presence of the vampire Kei (Hyde), who is forever trapped in his youth. Yes, there's a vampire. But the story isn't actually about the vampire, it's about Sho (Gackt). - confusing little clip provided by IMDB

(fun movie)

a winner is darkdemon :-)

"Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby"
lyrics by E.Y. Harburg

Dudley was the closest...not afk airport but the 'somewhere over da rainbow'

The song doesn't actually say Oz in it anywhere...almost gave it to Knightwolf though.
