  1. Just a little correction. Guy in the bible died from touching the ark not just because he accidentally touched it. He was disobedient as to the way he tried to transport it, instead of using the poles as depicted in the movie, he chose to put it on a cart. When the cart was disturbed and the ark almost fell over, he tried to stop it from falling. I just remember reading that as a kid and thinking it was unfair, until I read the full context and saw that it was from his disobedience not just the touching of the ark

    1. Hi Lei. You make me want to read some Old Testament Bible. Thank you for listening and commenting. I love what you have to say. 🙂

      1. Aww. Thanks. You too. You’re brave for being the only girl on most of the discussions, and I usually agree with all of your picks. I also get a little upset when the guys trash on movies you love. Keep up the good work.

        1. I have been picking on Lori’s movies since high school. She knows I respect her opinion, just not her movies, especially Gigi. Behind the scenes, she gives as good as she gets.
