Brash space adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the quarry of relentless bounty hunters after he steals an orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain. To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with four disparate misfits: gun-toting Rocket Raccoon, treelike-humanoid Groot, enigmatic Gamora, and vengeance-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when he discovers the orb's true power and the cosmic threat it poses, Quill must rally his ragtag group to save the universe.*

   Gram77  Didn't make it to the kitchen when Stallonne's name hit me. The fella on the right has been on Law and Order for a long time and then did a few movies. That's all I've got.
Yesterday at 11:35 EST .

   MeiDei  Y ou named two of the actors correctly. To the right of (Spartan ) Stallone is Benjamin Bratt and to the right of him I believe is Nigel Hawthorne; Wesley Snipes played Phoenix in "Demolition Man".

After the death of 11 climbers, Austrian Heinrich Harrer decides to add glory to his country and to the Austrian pride by climbing Nanga Parbat in British India, and leaves his expectant wife behind. An egoist and a loner, he does not get along with others on his team - but must bend to their wishes after bad weather threatens them. Then WWII breaks out, they are arrested and lodged in Dehra Dun's P.O.W. Camp. He attempts to break out several times in vain, but finally does succeed along with Peter Aufschnaiter, and they end up in the holy city of Lhasa - a place banned to foreigners. They are provided food and shelter, and Peter ends up marrying a tailor, Pema Lhaki, while Heinrich befriends the Dalai Lama. They meet regularly; while he satiates the child's curiosity about the world,*

   MeiDei posted on Main Page The Lobby  This fake photograph was created by the satire web site, and it was originally published in December 2013. It's back circulating this month. In addition to digitally altering the position of Biden’s hands, World News Bureau also photoshopped a bottle of liquor into Biden’s pocket. He has enough trouble keeping his hands to himself so why photoshop/manipulate when you can get a real video of him misbehaving.
