    You brought up Dolph Lundgren, and mentioned how he was terrible in his movies. After having sat through Red Scorpion, I would have to agree, but I learned recently that there is more to Dolph than his alkward acting style would have you believe.
    He has a degree in chemistry from Washington State University, a degree in chemical engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Sydney. He is also a holder of a 3rd dan black belt in Kyokushin Karate and was European champion in 1980 and 1981. I think that all that more than makes up for his cringeworthy apearances on the silver screen.

    Mike,
    Have you tried listening to music by Mitch Benn, Tim Minchin, maybe The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing , while working?
    Make it more about the comedy than the music?
    (Not that their music isn’t good too)
    They work for me 😉

    Wesley, there’s more to most people than the bigoted view we presume by the small amount of data we receive about them, most so-called ‘skeptics’ go round berating believers of woo-woo as being dumb mofo’s with no reasoning skills, yet that bloke wot run the human genome project became a Christian…

    Mr Lundgren’s attributes go way further than his ‘acting’, acting is just a job to earn some corn, and I’ll wager he’s made more from being a poor actor than he’d ever had made as a chemical engineer…and he’ll certainly be better remembered…

    Personally, I feel most people ‘attack’ the guy for jealousy of his success, rather than his acting ability or lack thereof…I’d rather spend a night chatting to that guy than some self-righteous skeptical prig harking on about homeopathy and illiberally trying to ‘convert’ people to ‘skepticism’ lol
