I know, crazy,right? To be former king then buried in no coffin at all. The disrespect! He's the Rodney Dangerfield of the monarchy! ;)

The difference between me and dogg, I can look at that idea and see that it is POSSIBLE, but not consider it to be likely. Dogg looks athte covert agenda and to him, that is the most likely scenario.

Do I believe the power outage had to do with Vegas? No. But I would not be too surprised if that ended up being the case.

I also read earlier today about the nephews he most likely murdered in order to better secure his place in the hierarchy. The bodies were found about 200 years later, in the 1600s, behind/underneath a staircase.

Good luck, Tonka. Facing the unknown is scary, but you are resourceful and really smart. That's a really good start :)

I would be surprised. They usually win (monetarily) no matter what team wins/loses. Why would they take a bigger risk in getting caught doing something so stupid?

I'd be more apt to believe some idiot who had money on the game took out the transformer. Or, the fact that they were overloading the thing by broadcasting all over the world and some idiot didn't do the calculations correctly and it got overloaded.

He didn't seem like the nicest guy.

Appearantly there are several post-mortem wounds since his body was displayed in the town square.

And all black, too, from what I could tell. Guess she isn't one for diversity. I found that to be rather offensive. And she set the woman's movement back 30 years with that performance, way to encourage girls to be sexual objects.
And loved the "anti-gun" theme with the performances by the Sandy Hook children and Jennifer Hudson.
And the commercials were CRAP!
Worst. Superbowl. Ever.

I thoroughly recommend Josephone Tey's Daughter of Time for a very good forensic approach to Richard's supposed murders of teh Princes in the Tower. It predates DNA technology but has interesting insights into Ricahrd.

Remembering what he was like in grade school, it would not surprise me. But I think he's got a couple kids.

Anything is "possible," Tonka, you're not really saying much. And I never said it was the most likely scenario, just that it was a suspicious coincidence.
