Can you imagine how many trees would have to be killed if Hong Kong put up headlines every time Jackie Chan got hurt?

But, seriously. I don't wish ill for anyone. I pray that Mr. Downey makes a full and quick recovery.


you just gotta play when you're hurt. Suck it up Robert and be a man.

What an asinine comment to

What an asinine comment to make.

Re: What...

You hold him in a state of regard that is far too high Paul. I'm guessing you feel CEO's who are paid a few million per year and have countless employees are vastly overpaid, but an actor who gets 10 Million for a movie is well worth every penny...and has almost no employees other than a publicist and an agent.

Iron Man

So, Iron Man has been has been stymied by a mortal ailment, a sprained ankle. His enemies may use that against him in the future.


I hope they are able to resume soon
