Swinging on a Star..

So's your thick skull copper!...

The Song dynasty (Chinese: 宋朝; pinyin: Sòng Cháo; Wade-Giles: Sung Ch'ao; was an era of Chinese history that began in 960 and continued until 1279. It succeeded the 5 Dynasties and 10 Kingdoms period, and was followed by the Yuan dynasty. It was the first government in world history to nationally issue banknotes or true paper money, and the first Chinese Government to establish an impermanent standing NaVy.. This dynasty also saw the first known use of Gunpowder..True north (geodetic north) is the direction along the EArth's surface towards the GeoGraphic North Pole...
Rocky is then captured following an elaborate shootout in a building, and sentenced to dye... Jerry visits him just before his execution and asks him to do him one last favor - to die pretending to be a screaming, sniveling coward, which would end the boys' idolization of him. Rocky refuses, and insists he will be "tough" to the end, and not give up the one thing he has left, his pride.. At the very last moment he appears to change his mind and has to be dragged to the electric chair (whether his cries are genuine or done only to fulfill Jerry's favor is left to the viewer's imagination). The boys read newspaper headlines that Rocky died a coward, although not believing it at first, Father Jerry verifies that the paper account was ACcurate.. Then Father Jerry asks them to say a prayer with him, "for a boy who couldn't run as fast as I could"...'ve seen this entertainment through and through..You've seen your birth your life and death..You've been digging, Luke, and if you keep digging, you'll be digging your own grave.. Our membership has its pleasure, its hardship, and sometimes its Pain..They said that it was at the building which doesn't necessarily mean that..Our rules supercede those of the outside world..You might recall all of the rest...
