Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

I pretty much have the entire movie "The Princess Bride" memorized :)
So do I...
I absolutely love science fiction -- movies and books. I have more sci fi movies than most video stores and my local community library. What I love about science fiction is that it is a veiled way of lookg at our current world, at our worries abt the future, and then a way to play with the future. I mean, when I was a kid, the Dick Tracy comic strip in the paper had Tracy talking to his watch and it was so exotic. Now we take pictures and scan the internet with our cell phones. Science fiction is a great way to play w/possibilities!
So, yeah...I own all the Terminator movies, most of the movies that are based on Phillip K Dick stories (Adjustmt Bueau, Minority Report, the James Cameron movie starring Harrison Ford from the '80s, etc.) And get this, the movies are alphabetized on their own special shelf. Now I know this is nerdy, I truly do.
I also am reading the Hugo and Nebula award winning science fiction books. I've read several science fiction books from the '70s that were written by women authors, had a feminist slant and were absolutely different ways of looking at the world.
I also love puns and wordplay. Yup, a nerd.
