    Default Parker 51 in the movies

    I have returned to fountain pen geeks after a long period of absence. There used to be a forum "Pens in the Movies" but I cant find it. I was watching a move Ike - Countdown to D-Day on TV yesterday. It stars Tom Selleck as General MacArthur. At the very end of the movie Selleck is seen writing something and I am sure it is a Parker 51 black with silver top. I am trying to find the movie on Netflix to see if I can take a screen shop. Maybe someone has the DVD and can take a screen shot.

    Pens in the Movies is in the Pens in General forum, as it's not related to a specific pen brand.
    I've just been reading it.

    I managed to find them on YouTube. I was looking for old surf movies, too. They have pay-per-view movies that you can rent for about $3.99. "Five Summer Stories," "Riding Giants," and "Momentum Generation" are all I found. Another source is the xMovies8. That's where I also found these movies and many more. Luckily there's no subscription to it, and it's completely free and of excellent quality. So I chose the 2nd option. If you have Amazon Prime, Surf Channel costs $5.99 a month, and it streams a ton of these movies.

    Why is that spam? He found the movies and was sharing where - along with his interests and movies he was looking for.

    I'm just...surprised...to learn that 'old surf movies' is a genre.

    Maybe I shouldn't be.

    only two posts by this user:
    https://fpgeeks.com/forum/search.php?searchid=3151813
    https://fpgeeks.com/forum/showthread...534#post323534

    - This one is on a thread that had not seen activity in over two years (alone, this is not proof of spam)
    - Both posts contain links to "movie websites"

    The other post seemed... "off"... yesterday or the day before when I read it, but this one, this one is just a total non sequitur.
    It just didn't make sense in the context of this thread and therefore made me suspect a bot pushing the websites listed in the posts.
    Especially with only two posts, and both of them being about movies and both having links to websites that *seem* a little shady.

    Maybe I'm wrong. Your call.

    Maybe.
    This of course brings up the argument that the internet REALLY REALLY REALLY needs a "sarcasm" font.
    Honestly, more than any other single thing on the internet, i think that would be helpful (no sarcasm intended with this statement, i really do wish we could all agree on a "sarcasm" font)

    On other forums, I have seen the use of red font as an indicator of sarcasm but I don't know if that is standard usage...or whether the use of red font disadvantages a group of people who cannot easily read or discern the red colour.

    That would include those of us, self included (moderately R/G colour blind), who are red/green colour blind. I can see the red font, but I admit it takes effort, and is a strain to read it.

    Is this any better?

    (I just realized we need a way of indicating nested sarcasm, when a response is meant to be sarcastically sarcastic...what a minefield!)

    No offence taken. (my day is slow as well).

    May I suggest going to something that stands out better?
