Jun 8, Disney Lately, there have been many media outlets reporting that VHS tapes of classic Disney movies have become so rare and coveted, you can sell the ones sitting in your closet for thousands. According to those claims, Beauty and the Beast is one of the top moneymakers, especially if it says “The Classics” in a black diamond on the side of the cover. But before you quit your day job and take up selling VHS tapes on eBay full-time, Snopes has unearthed some important details behind those big claims. Advertisement – Continue Reading Below First off, it’s important to note that eBay users can list anything they want for whatever price they want. But that doesn’t mean people are actually paying that much money for the tapes—or even bidding on them at all for that matter. After conducting our own unscientific search of the site, we didn’t find any thousand-dollar Beauty and the Beauty VHS tape listings with active bids on them. Plus, with over 4, currently active listings, Beauty and the Beast VHS tapes don’t seem to be that “rare” after all. Ebay For a more accurate idea of what Disney VHS tapes could be worth, we filtered the site for ‘ sold listings. Sure, that’s more cash than you had in your pocket before, but it’s hardly the “jackpot” some are saying it is. If you do happen to find a thousand-dollar sold listing— like this one —it’s possible someone did pay that much for the item, but it’s more likely that a lower price was negotiated, which ended the original listing.

Primary source references As a preface to this document, I want to point out that it is a shame that we have to continue to refute the same arguments that evolutionists keep bringing up over and over again in their attempts to argue against the fact of creation, which fact has been well established since the day the earth was created ex nihilo several thousand years ago. It is also a shame that the masses have bought all this based on some circular reasoning about fossils, where fossils tend to be found buried, similarities between various life forms, the presence of certain decay products in rocks, and other inherently speculative arguments about the past, based on phenomena that exist in the present.
If I hope to accomplish anything, it will be to simply encourage critical thinking. One must get past the arguments ad populum that its popularity counts for something , ad hominem that if you attack the person making the argument, this counts for something , and especially ad baculum that there are people who have the clout to decree it as true , to ask the key questions and challenge the unsubstantiated assumptions and thinking of those who would hold to the evolution position. Today there are an increasing number of anti-creationist authors who are producing books and periodicals that make this relatively brief presentation insufficient to deal with all the points in dispute.
Those defending creation today who don’t have the time to devote their life’s study to gaining expertise in all fields of inquiry must principally be prepared to think critically, logically, and challenge unsubstantiated assumptions made by these people. They must also keep a level head in the face of some vicious attacks and diatribes that will be directed against them, as is advised in the scriptures 1 Peter 3: By way of definitions, I want to point out that when I speak of “evolution,” I am referring to the popular contemporary use of the word, which in a nutshell is the belief that all life forms are related by ancestry, and that the first life form occurred spontaneously, all due to completely natural processes.
When I speak of “creation,” I am referring to the inherently obvious fact that the origin of all life forms can be attributed to a creator who purposefully created them with planning and intent, and the documented fact that this occurred over the course of a week’s time several thousand years ago.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian.
Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date. Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.
If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart.

Definition[ edit ] In a review of a book on the history of cinephilia, Mas Generis writes: Cinephilia, is the condition of a sexual attraction to movies. Post-war French cinephilia[ edit ] Perhaps the most notable cinephilic community of the 20th century was the one that developed in Paris in the decades following World War II. In general, the cinephiles of the period set a template for future like-minded groups by having keen enthusiasm for both older and contemporary films.
The community fostered an interest in directors and films that had been neglected, forgotten or simply unknown in the West, and led to the development of the auteur theory. The directors the French cinephiles of the period had strong interests in included F. With the popular success of the French New Wave , film-going became fashionable in Europe and America. In the United States, New York City was often seen as the center of cinephile culture,  due to the wide variety of films available to see at any given time.
Due to growing public interest in films from other countries , specialty distributors such as Janus Films and New Yorker Films began importing and subtitling foreign movies. The era also saw the growth of college film societies in the US.

Copy Protection[ edit ] As VHS was designed to facilitate recording from various sources, including television broadcasts or other VCR units, content producers quickly found that home users were able to use the devices to copy videos from one tape to another. Despite the generation loss , this was regarded as a widespread problem, which the members of the Motion Picture Association of America MPAA claimed caused them great financial losses. In response, several companies developed technologies to protect copyrighted VHS tapes from casual duplication by home users.
The most popular method was Macrovision , produced by a company of the same name. According to Macrovision, “The technology is applied to over million videocassettes annually and is used by every MPAA movie studio on some or all of their videocassette releases. Over commercial duplication facilities around the world are equipped to supply Macrovision videocassette copy protection to rights owners.
These errors in the output video stream are ignored by most televisions, but will interfere with re-recording of programming by a second VCR.
The very idea was anathema to Betaphiles around the world. To Sony, VHS was little more than an upstart enemy — a mere technological kluge that copied their basic design, changing only the size and shape of the cassette and the internal mechanism. Morita never envisioned the tumultuous events that were to unfold over the next decade But how did it all go wrong? Many industry pundits had their own reasons: This led to another theory:
