So, it won't accept "You have mail", which is how I hear it all the time, but "You've got mail". Stupid American grammar!

The phrase "You've Got Mail" was the way AOL notified users they had gotten email. There was a distinctive .wav file of a male voice saying that phase, which became well-known even outside of AOL users.

If you had AOL you definitely would have heard "you've got mail" all the time. But... Americans were getting online and using the Internet for years before Tim Berners-Lee "invented" it. Outside of the USA I doubt anyone knows what AOL is.

Yea well.. we were writing English long before Americans were writing emails in it... So put that in your irrelevant pipe and smoke it. Silly person.

and Americans were writing in proper English long after everyone had stopped caring enough about you to notice that you had forgotten how, or notice that when you bring up your list of accomplishments the first thing on that list happened over 1,000 years ago. Enjoy whatever American tobacco product you like, sillier person.

Tm Berners-Lee has never claimed to have invented the internet: he developed the world-wide web. They're not the same. Twonk

No, he didn't. But twonks like yourself often claim he did, or don't understand what the difference is. I never claimed that Lee claimed anything.

I started by typing Tom Hanks films I knew without looking at the questions. So, no Splash? No Road to Perdition? Bonfire of Vanities? Charlie Wilsons War? I was also surprised to realise TH was in a lot of movies I was never interested in seeing.

Tom Hanks still owes me the $5 I wasted on seeing Joe v. the Volcano. The only movie that I've seen that surpassed that in awfulness was Jim Carrey's The Mask.

Joe vs. the Volcano. Worst movie ever made. To add injury to insult, i got punched in the face by a bunch of thugs in the parking lot after the movie was over while waiting for my parents to get out of their movie I was in 7th grade. Very bad experience. Damn volcano.

Heh heh heh...didn't read the Da Vinci Code clue to closely and thought it was Indiana Jones...that was fun. For impact on culture Toy Story and Forrest Gump are the biggest but I'll always love Sully. It had so little material to go off of and it was handled masterfully. The special effects looked more real than the rest of the movie (noticed the same thing recently with Murder on the Orient Express). That's a massive step forward in the industry of cinema.

Don't know why Tom Hanks' movies like Polar Express or Bridge of Spies aren't here. Guess they weren't that popular enough to be listed, which is surprising to me for the Polar Express, that's my favorite Christmas movie.

It doesn't say it's all of his movies. It's just a list of some of them. Some of the movies here are less popular than Polar Express and Bridge of Spies, but listing all his movies would be a big task, so the quiz just has a sampling.
