When Broadway theaters have a 1500 seat capacity and Disney Florida has like 330,000, the scale is a bit off.

see more

Also a broadway show lasts 2 1/2 hours or so while Disney’s parks are available for 12-13 hours a day many productions running constantly throughout the day rides and many different forms of entertainment. It cost me 170 dollars to see my fair lady it would cost me 120 dollars to be in the parks for a full day.

I see you fast through the daylight hours

Do you want me to account for peeing time as well?

IIRC if you look at the average life-expectancy increase from the recommended amount of daily exercise, it is actually a net gain.

Also you are also in a better shape to enjoy that time.

You lose literally a third of its value the second you drive it off the forecourt. How is that a good investment?

see more

Investment worth of time and future expenditures, cash value is not the only thing worth investing for. If you live in a city not having a car isn’t a big deal but I have a friend who doesn’t drive and his commute which ordinarily would be a 30 minute drive is an hour and a half train ride/walk each way and costs him close to $15 a trip. How much is two hours of sleep/time worth to you? As far as new vs a few years old I just bought a few year old car and ended up saving only a few thousand dollars when everything was said and done, so that is a bit of a toss up as to what it’s worth. But 3-4 years of putting off repairs that could cost a ton of money and also pushback 3-4 years of expensive maintenance milestones might be worth it for some people.

Not to mention cropping and pan-and-scanning anything that's not 16:9 aspect ratio. Better than it used to be on 4:3 screens, but still stupid.

see more

For the most part pan and scanning is a thing of the past. Almost all HD content is cropped to fill the 16:9 ratio however when the content is particularly wide say higher than 2.10 there will be black on the top and bottom of the screen to preserve original ratio. Most content though is made for 1.85 ratio.

I found it interesting though specifically because of the use of an old trope in a new way. Thematically Logan is about facing the sins of your past to create hope for the future, it’s a little on the nose but Logan literally has to fight his younger self to allow a new future(his daughter) to survive. It’s the kind of twist on a trope I really like to see in these movies.

Satire? Either way no, protest doesn’t require anything like that. Most of the Net Netraulity Protection was done online. Yea you should let people see your protest, but you should never force it on someone or be a complete ass and stop traffic or ruin someone’s trip to the Statue of Liberty.

How has net neutrality protection panned out so far?

Pretty okay, actually. They said it would happen in April, and 3 months later, nothing.

see more

The protections have been removed. The nothing you are talking about is what companies are going to do post net neutrality mostly hinging on how many states are gonna pass their own laws and if those laws hold up to being challenged in the courts.

I’m also curious if Lloyd or Grady are in the picture as they too have always been there.

So 2/3 changed, then.

2 out of 3 ain’t bad

it might change when Disney buys FOX

how do you figure? Do you think Disney is going international with its own streaming service?

see more

If there’s money in it Disney will definitely go there.

it was an inexpensive electric I got and rarely use anymore. I think it was in the $100 range so definitely not a les paul...can't remember the brand at the moment

see more

the Epiphone Les Paul special 2 is $130 new. The les Paul is the style of the body there are some very cheap ones out there.

“If you stand for nothing, Burr What will you fall for?” And “And when my time is up, have I done enough?”

Try reading the first sentence and make sense of it.... You can't just put period whatever you want

Yeah that should be a comma and one sentence.

There is a strong correlation to hate crimes and election years in past data. This election has been particularly bad though.

The data I saw went from 1990 because of the Hate Crime Statistics act signed by George H W Bush.

Does Prima Cinema still exist as a company? They offered $35,000 equipment for their streaming service plus a $500 per rental. A relative bargain when this is the alternative.

How sad. I remember learning about her in a science lesson, and hearing about how she once blamed one of her kittens for ripping a sink off the wall. At first, the image just made me laugh - a gorilla gesturing wildly towards a kitten while surrounded by broken plumbing.

After a while, though, you start to realise "Holy shit, the gorilla lied ". You start thinking about exactly how intelligent gorillas, and other primates, are. You find that lots of the behaviours you think are exclusive to humanity really aren't that special.

I know that there's a lot of issues over the quality of the research, and the lack of peer review is a big problem. It may well be that the sink incident was apocryphal - I couldn't find any direct sources confirming it from a quick Google. Still, she showed that intelligence, emotion and cat obsession is a lot more common than we previously thought.

see more

I always found this interesting because the thought process is somewhat advanced but you can see it’s limitations. She knew she’d get in trouble for it so tried to sift blame but she is not smart enough to make up a believable lie. It’s the kind of thing a two year old would do while not understanding why you don’t buy her story that clowns broke your vase.

So clowns broke the vase?

I swear to god they did they came in here and knocked over the vase.

Senegal won 2-1, yet score shows 2-0 at beginning of play. Was this a replay?

see more

Yes this was a replay of Senegal’s second goal.

The batter had broken an opposing player's leg the game before. The pitcher here is deliberately trying to hit the batter with the ball to retaliate. The umpires threw the pitcher out of the game.

see more

The broken leg was in the playoffs the year before. This was the first meeting since that series.

I'm sure an MLB pitcher could hit a human sized target 100% of the time though. Probably with a really tight grouping too.

see more

He also can through 100 mph Utley wouldn’t be able to get out of the way in time if he wanted to hit him.

All of those 77 shows will also be up to listen in their entirety on Stitcher Premium starting June 24 as well. Using the promo WEIRD even gets you your first month free.

This is legit the first thing to make me even think of getting Stitcher premium.

I remember a pee trough in a public washroom when I was in Europe. You could literally look down the line of urinating dicks, if you were so brave...

see more

This entirely. I just got back from Scotland and every bathroom had stall doors floor to ceiling ,like the picture, with urinals either community troughs or urinals 2 feet apart with no dividers. No problem standing shoulder to shoulder holding your dick out but god forbid the doors be a little short.

Does anyone know if Stan Lee is a genuinely nice guy or not?

see more

From the stories I’ve heard of him he seems like a nice guy and honestly loves the fans but was also a shrewd businessman who made sure he was the face of the company. Him and Kirby have a Jobs and Wozniak relationship except Jobs was way more of an asshole.

See? That was funny...it appears you can shit-post too.

see more

Like I said we are more alike and our experiences are the similar, but that’s not what you chose to talk about. The language you use is important and meaningful, it’s as much how you say it as what you say and why you choose to say it that way. Shit-posting when someone is serious is another form of condescension. You’re refusal to see from my point of view leads me to believe your efforts are not genuine.

Ok, you made a snarky comment and I called it a shit-post. Respectfully, by the way, it really was very funny (and I deserved it so there's that). Now you want to claim the high road? You are in every way guilty of every thing you accuse me of. You are so stuck in your bias that it is senseless to continue. This time, you will get the last word and I will not see it.

Or is it impossible for this conversation to happen?

It’s a slippery slope.

Right? They WANT a deal with Iran, but they don't want a deal with NK. That right there just proves that they only want a deal when it's their side getting it done.

see more

You want a deal with North Korea but not one with Iran. By your logic it proves the same about you.

I have never endorsed pulling out of the Iran deal... Although, I don't really agree with the original terms...

Your original comment makes it sound otherwise. “They WANT a deal with Iran” makes it look like you think it’s a preposterous idea, that the wanting is ridiculous.

There are a number of stories about Jordan being a dick especially while playing. While defending Muggsy Bogues he yelled “shoot the fucking ball you midget.” Punched Steve Kerr at practice because they had a disagreement, Steve seems cool with it though. And a pretty famous interaction with Chamillionaire at a charity auction, chamilionaire bought a bunch of Jordan memorabilia and when he asked Jordan for a picture Mike response was “hell no, I don’t take pictures with no N***ers”. Then said he’d take a picture with him if he bought one of his jerseys for $15,000 Now while he was a degenerate gambler and bet on NBA games there are a lot of rumors Surrounding him that aren’t true. His dad was killed in a random roadside encounter, no truth to it being retaliation because he refused to pay his debts. As far as I can tell he always paid up. And no proof that his leaving basketball was a disguised suspension, it is weird though.
