Sports Cleats – Studs Vs Spikes

Cleats are one of mankind’s more clever inventions, I believe. People were playing games that caused them to skid around and lose their footing. Therefore, someone had the bright idea to attach little studs to the bottom of their shoes, thereby providing instant traction. Behold the birth of the cleats. This kind of shoe has been in existence since at least the 16th century, at which time King Henry VIII of England is known to have ordered a pair to be used while playing football (or soccer, as it would be called in the United States). However, considering their usefulness,

The biggest breakthrough came in 2001 when anime movies were shown, uncut, on the Adult Swim network. Suddenly the fan base had a dedicated home and

What’s going on with the expression: “For crying out loud?” Have you ever thought about that? I mean, what the heck does that expression mean anyway? Where did it originate from? Expressions like “Hot dog!” or “Man alive!” make sense to me. Hot dog implies that you’re excited about something- About as excited as you’d be if someone gave you a free hot dog. “Man alive” means your surprised about something; it was likely coined by mountain climbers when they found half-dead men in the snow- Imagine running across a boot sticking out of the snow, and when you tug

Analysis of a Protagonist – Rocky, Sylvester Stallone

Don’t be fooled by the mediocrity of the later Rocky movies, especially four and five, which in my opinion, whilst they are entertaining movies, lack a certain polish in the writing department. The first Rocky film earned Sylvester Stallone the Oscar for best original screenplay and in my opinion, this was a well-deserved award for an accomplished script. I have yet to write a finished screenplay, although I have written a published novella and also graduated from film school – so I do not speak from a position of authority when it comes to the art of screenplay writing. However,
