  1. No, I'd prefer it if your students were sharper than my coworkers. One, because it gives a very slight ray of hope for the future, and two, because my coworkers are flippin' stupid.
  2. Saw CM for the second time. Perhaps it's because I was looking out for it, but I don't think Brie's performance was wooden so much as subtle. She's quietly competent and confident without crossing the line into actual arrogance. What I still didn't get was that the film wasn't funny. The jokes were there, but the timing or delivery is just off. I can't put my finger on it. Still a good film, but like some other films, I felt there were wasted opportunities. Anyway, people in the audience cheered when the screen flashed "CM will return in Endgame".
  3. This calls for a bloodletting!
  4. Refund was better than I feared, though hardly enough to make a real difference.
  5. Sockeye Salmon sounds much more fun. Sourcebooks You Didn't Buy: Wilderness Survival Guide vs. Oriental Adventures
  6. Old Man

    More space news!

    Actually, wouldn't they just float there weightlessly?
  7. Can anyone remember whether Batman died in Infinity War?
  8. Ygorl spells "Lrogy" backwards. Somebody sat down and made one of these on purpose? Deck of Many Things vs. Sphere of Annihilation
  9. Un-manly? He went hand-to-hand with a flerken and only lost an eye!
  10. I found my sewer cleanout under 0.5" of dirt! This saves me a weekend of digging up my yard, or $1500 to have a plumber put one in!
  11. Title: Cthulhu, Interrupted or Fighting Madness With Madness Soundtrack: The Doors--People are Strange Cypress Hill--Insane in the Brain Suicidal Tendencies--Institutionalized
  12. I’m fond of using the word “fantastic” at work, which has the advantage of being totally unclear as to whether I’m using it sarcastically or not. Another phrase I use is “Christ on a stick”, though I’m not sure it isn’t just as offensive as normal profanity.
  13. Mueller has delivered his report to AG Barr. EVERYBODY FREAK OUT NOW
  14. The sign doesn’t say “hikers” or “walkers”, it says “runners”.
  15. That’s fine, but it’s not a good look to post uninformed opinions about the movie you didn’t see in the forum thread dedicated to that movie.
  16. She rolled over in bed and whispered in his ear, “sweetie, don’t see my movie, it’s not for you.”
  17. Strangely, I can’t think of a way to distinguish ‘90s action movies the way I can with ones from the eighties. Shaky cam and grainy?
  18. Damn that RL, always getting in the way of things.
  19. No no, this is the Raiders. Where flake personnel problems start at the very top. I can't wait for Burfict and Brown to get into a fight in camp and hurt each other so they both spend the season on IR. That would be the most Raiders thing ever.
  20. Isn't there a flippin' sticky thread for this already?
  21. As someone who has family members that had polio, I think he got off pretty lightly.
