    No, its not that. It is National Weed Day and no really cares about a sentient computer system and killer cyborgs.

    Don't look at me! He was never my Governor!

    Of course, I do live in the Canadian province whose Premier (Governor) legally changed his name to Amor De Cosmos (inaccurately translated from "Lover of the Universe") ... in 1854.

    In researching this (to get the spellings and dates right).... it turns out he changed his name in - California! :eek: Ok, you Californians have the market cornered on "weird stuff". I concede.... we ain't got nuthin' on you.

    The actual date changes from movie to movie because each time either the Skynet project is placed on hold or destroy. Hence it has to be rebuilt.

    You would lose that bet. I've have never tried marijuana, nor do I ever intend to.

    I'll see your Governator and raise you one Governor "The Body" Ventura. And we also elected Stuart Smalley to the Senate. :eek:

    Didn't Skynet start in August of 1997? (Sorry, I only go by the first two terminator flicks. :) )
