Question by you.: Looking for a Fullmetal Alchemist cover art?
I remember reading a certain volume of Fullmetal Alchemist (I`m pretty sure it`s an edition published in the US, so the art may be different from the Japanese printings) and it was basically Roy in the middle with his back facing the reader (like he`s walking away from the reader) and two people (one of them is Hughes, don`t remember the other) was beside him, turning back.
Which volume is this and can someone link me to the picture?

Best answer:

Answer by I Will LOL You :D

Question by August: I’m looking for some really good old movies?
I’m a fan of older movies. I am particularly looking for good old comedies, but anything really works. I love Mel Brooks films ie. Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood: Men in Tights ect. I love the Princess Bride (much more recent). I also like to go back to Casablanca and others like that. Basically, I am just asking peoples opinions on good older movies. I’d like to broaden my movie knowledge.

Question by Red: Looking for a good book to read – mystery, romance, colorful and possibly set in ancient Arabia?
I’m looking for a good summer read (or two or five…as many as you can give me)! No postmodern, sad/depressing analysis of the futile rat-race that is life; just high-tailed adventure with colour, love and dashing characters (not just a cheesy romance novel though – I definitely need a plot and some development. I was ideally looking for something set in ancient Arabia, but really, anything historic will do. Thanks so much! :)

Question by Naj Somtaaw: Do you think human consciousness is like life looking at itself in a mirror?
Humans are a part of life and nature yet we can contemplate and even end our own existence.
We are part of nature yet we can suppress the primitive instinctual drives of other forms of life.
Is meta-cognition uniquely a human trait? Is the ability to contemplate the existence of life-itself independent from consciousness-itself?

Best answer:

Answer by Naguru
Yes, I also think like that.

Answer by Amy
I am a huge fan of Merlin, for all the reasons you said. I cannot wait for series 3 to start this Saturday!
During this past summer, I was able to go to the MERLIN panel at Comic Con San Diego, where Colin Morgan and Anthony Head were joined by the two creators Johnny Capps and Julian Murpy. The panel was BRILLIANT and my favorite of the weekend. Additionally, we got a series 3 exclusive premiere.
PLUS – an absolutely hysterical blooper reel!
Check the panel, and the blooper reel, out on my youtube channel – PotterHallows.

I can’t wait for series 3!

p.s. I met the actors, and writers – and they were just as SWEET as they could be! A true thrill. =)
