One lunar month is 28 days, right?

It is indeed, Annie. It's a film that seemed to me to owe a lot to Day of Triffids, especially the beginning; opening with the hero in a hospital bed, and the shots of an empty London (which were presumably shot at dawn), just like in the BBC adaptation. There's also a dodgy army unit involved. Mind you the zombies run a lot faster than triffids.

"According to director Danny Boyle, it was the opening hospital sequence of The Day of the Triffids that inspired Alex Garland to write the screenplay for 28 Days Later."

(I got that off the InterWebz)

Que pena ustedes tienen pocos sesos
y todos que ustedes pueden hacer son tontorias,
estrenido en la competencia,
mentes pequenas de ningun importancia,
todo que puedo decir, de este hilo—adios!

Yo se esa pelicula— es tonto y mas tonto!!

Y asi, por fin y afuera—cabrones!

Todo lo que hemos intentado hacer es tonterías, así que no sé por qué te molesta. ¿Quieres profundidad? Inicie otro hilo y todos seremos lo más sombríos posible.

There once was a fellow named Jim
(This limerick's speaking to him)
In the most pleasant way
I just want to say
Sod off to your Deep End. Don't swim.

Jim, I don't understand what's eating you. This was a harmless thread for people to post impromptu limericks. No one claimed that they were timeless verses deserving of endless admiration. We were just goofing around. Some of the people goofing around are in fact rather accomplished poets whose non-goofing poems you would no doubt recognzie as worthy. But this was just ad hoc improvised doggerel and didn't pretend to be otherwise. If it wasn't your thing, you could simply have stayed away, and yet you have stopped by more than once to insult the participants in two languages. I really don't get it. What's eating you?

Well, I'm not bilingual so I had to resort to Google Translate to decipher what your posts said, Jim, (and Bob's reply) and I was dismayed when I saw the result. Like Bob, I'm also at a loss as to what's the problem.
