Dear Wisconsin, You did far more than win an election. You inspired & rekindled hope. Love, America

What you did was SO much more than winning an election! I hope you know how much this means to all of us who were watching.

You have made a huge impact on the entire country at a time when hope and inspiration are so needed.

This is one for the history books. This is the America we know and love.

You are heroes.

Was thinking that we were slipping after the Georgia, Louisiana and Kentucky victories last year, but the hope is renewed.

Best wishes to everyone who showed up to vote in spite of the risk. Shame on all regressive repubtards who insisted on an in-person vote.

Good idea to re-watch them all. Such a metaphor for now. So where are we now? Obviously the eagles haven't arrived yet.

Sorry for the late reply, I haven't been checking my posts for replies very diligently.

It was the standard-length version of LOTR as shown on Netflix, we watched the Hobbit on DVD which does appear to have have an extended version included in the package -2 DVD's each for 'An unexpected journey', 'the desolation of Smaug' and 'the battle of the 5 armies' with one of the DVD's from each film marked 'special features' IIRC.

We watched the regular length version of the Hobbit as well... but now you've got me curious and I want to see whats on those special features DVD's!

37. IF you are an LOTR fan, the extended versions of the trilogy are essential! There is abou 45 minutes

more in Return of the King and it shows Aragorn working with people in the HOuses of Healing, one of my favorite parts that was not in the theatrical version.

38. True that

Also, at the scene of Aragorn's coronation in Return of the King (my wife's favorite scene) I was explaining to her how, in the book, Faramir and Eowyn meet in the houses of healing, something that's not apparent in the regular version that we were watching on Netflix.
Can't remember if that was in the extended version as last time I watched the extended footage was years ago...

Like the Hobbit, I also have LOTR on DVD, I was just too lazy to get up off my sofa to put it in the player! As I mentioned, last time I actually watched the extended version was years ago, maybe time to rectify that...

39. Yes, Faramir and Eowyn meeting in HOuses of Healing is in extended version!

We should do this on DU mail rather than on this thread! If you reply, why don't you do it via DU mail.

All we did was the right and proper thing to do....VOTE! We still have much to do before Nov., but in my area our coalition is up and running....phone banking and emailing only at this time, social distancing doesnít allow for canvassing.

Keep it up Wisconsin Patriots!

a formidable obstacle course to navigate. At least it sure looked that way from out here.

19. Wisconsin Supreme Court should be charged with criminal endangerment. All of them that voted

against a delay and forced voters to choose between exercising their right and potentially contracting Covid 19, in the middle of a fucking global pandemic. JFC. Special place in hell.
