Great stuff, But I'd still rather be watching "The Men who Stare at Goats".

Comedy. Reporter Bob Wilton is in search of his next big story when he encounters Lyn Cassady, a shadowy figure who claims to be part of an experimental US military unit. According to Cassady, the New Earth Army is changing the way wars are fought. A legion of Warrior Monks with unparalleled psychic powers can read the enemy's thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat simply by staring at it. Now, the programme's founder, Bill Django, has gone missing and Cassady's mission is to find him.

Walking Through Walls

"The film opens with a Major General trying to walk through a wall. According to Jon Ronson, the source of this incident was a real life Major General himself, Albert Stubblebine III.

We are, after all, simply a collection of atoms, and atoms are more space than mass. Why shouldn’t our mind have the power to rearrange, temporarily, those spaces to allow us to pass through walls?

But theory is not reality, and Stubblebine, for all his faith and concentration, did indeed smash nose-first into his office wall in 1983. You should know that, from 1981 to 1984, General Stubblebine was the head of the U.S. Army’s Intelligence and Security Command, with authority over some 16,000 enlisted personnel.

Isn't it reassuring to know the world's in safe hands!

hello Amazonian,

Well, I started young, trying my hand at the powers of the mind, resulting in a similarly broken nose and a visit to the hospital when at the tender age of 6 or 8 I ran into a brick wall in the primary school boy's playground. Or was I chasing a blonde girl called Rachel McTurk, and somehow managed to miss that large rectangular area known as the open door which was all that separated the boys n' girl's playgrounds?

Yes I think it was. And I still have the nose ridges and lumps and occasional sensitive moments with it, pushing fifty years later ...

Ah, happy daze.
