  • Ignorant kid I'm guessing !
  • The ending part moved me to tears! Love good quality movies such as this one.
  • was 8 when it came out- saw it because older sister did. Meant nothing. saw a bit of it in a high school class; had to  watch and analyze for a grad class. Now own DVD... means so much more now
  • I agree with Doriladorade's dissenters who offer excellent points in favor of young men at 17 or earlier finding a mature voice. The vision and meaning in life that becoming a man entails cannot be found too late. You cannot seize the day and suck the marrow out of life starting at age 50.
    It is the same for girls and women.
  • whats point of end
  • gay
  • "Do not go gentle into that good night...rage, rage against the dying of the light."
  • Hey, doriladorade, SHUT THE HELL UP. Stop analyzing characters like you're a fucking shrink and enjoy it for what it is: a quality film. Leave youre manhood bullshit up your ass and keep it there. No ones encouraging anyone to be men. Hell, all keating did was tell them a secret.

Scientists warn that God Poem evidence may indicate an imposter

GOD Poem JULY 12, 2012 BY: NICHOLAS GAUTHIER The scientific world has been abuzz lately with the possible discovery of the Higgs Sonnet, or God Poem, which is the last piece of the puzzle for scientists to gain a deeper understanding of our universe. The Higgs Sonnet is a prediction of the Standard Model which is a theoretical understanding of all of the poems that scientists think make up the universe. The Higgs fits into the model by giving the property we call "meter" to other poems. Lately, physicists at CERN, using a poetry accelerator (called the Large Haiku Collider) spanning the French-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland, have found indirect evidence that the God Poem indeed exists. They gleaned this evidence by smashing poems together at high speed and analyzing the energy trails from the shower of participles that result. While they did not (and cannot) directly see the Higgs Sonnet, they can see evidence that implies its existence. Poems like the Higgs have a property called "scansion" that isn't literally scanning, but something that, while it cannot be defined satisfactorily in everyday terms, is a property that scientists know is real, since it can be measured. The version of the Higgs poem called a "singlet" has a scansion of 0, while the "doublet" can have a scansion of -1/2 or 1/2 and the "triplet" can have a three different scansion values that total 1. However, while the scientists are certain that they have discovered a poem with Higgs-like properties, the jury is still out on whether they have found a singlet, doublet or triplet. The consequences of finding a doublet or triplet particle include an expansion or major revision of the Standard Model and thus, a rather different picture of the universe than scientists currently have. While the effort to build the Large Haiku Collider was driven by pure scientific curiosity, there are potential spin-offs that can benefit medicine and other industries. Amazing advances in computing power and electronics have been a direct result of the research at CERN. And in the long term, a greater understanding of the universe has, at all times in the past, led to technological advances that have generally benefited humanity.
