- Annual Oscar predictions:
Best Picture: The King's Speech. A mature movie with great acting and earnest dialog. Hollywood doesn't make these kind of movies anymore.
Best Director: David Fincher. Bleh. Any movie written by Sorkin should be cast aside. I am fed-up with smug characters quickly talking at each other, instead of to each other.
Best Actor: Colin Firth
Best Actress: Padme Amidala, opps...I mean Natalie Portman.
Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale. Pulling for Geoffrey Rush. Rush is incapable of delivering a bad line.
Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo. The most wide-open race of the night. Anyone could win.

- Are you getting eight hours of continuous sleep each night? No? Here's why you should not worry:
- Alcohol consumption per country:
- Ambidextrous people are easier to manipulate than right-handed people. I doubt this is true. Oh wait, well maybe it is. I cannot decide. I am going back and forth. What do you think? I will follow your judgement:
