A Cultural History
Yes,if they were going to do it today they`d be in biohazard suits,but it was so completely unexpected to see plus the fact that you cant see the guys face made the scene quite scary.I was always hoping for a sequel,especially now that all the cast has grown up it would be the perfect time

list looks very interesting. Cheers. I think I've got some homework to do over the weekend.Hospital was for the other half, not myself. All fine now, thanks for asking although I've still yet to catch up on the sleep lost. which is where I'm going now. resisting urge to check links but had to peak at Sir Patrick Moore, which is a fantastic find. - cheers again
