  1. @adiwan You know what, I think Keanu doing much of his own stunts is part of the appeal, too

  2. @adiwan The only thing I remember about Hunger Games was being cranky that the main character is in no way a protagonist, then feeling vindicated when I read something about the conclusion that said she WAS a puppet of a larger scheme, all along

  3. @adiwan Compared to a lot of recent action films, you can actually see the choreography, as opposed to just trusting that Matt Damon is even swinging towards that stunt double while the camera operator has a grand mal seizure... And he's avenging a puppy, I guess?

  4. @adiwan My family always kept at least one big bucket of water handy, dunked all the spent fireworks, and tossed the trash out properly for 4th of July, how damn hard is it?

  6. @adiwan Yeah, I get the same feel. Might pick it up for my dad, who has expressed minor interest, but it would be too late for a Christmas present...

  8. @adiwan @scribus I enjoyed it quite a bit, although I definitely thought the Pinky and the Brain segments were generally the better parts of the episodes they were in. Not that the Warner Bros. segments were bad at all, they were pretty funny, I just thought P&B had waaaaay less misses.

  10. @adiwan Yeah, I've seen a mixture of different designs and countries since I've gotten here. The US started a thing a while back for the states. Not sure if they ever stopped since the original coins are still in circulation. Wasn't paying much attention to the years.

  14. @adiwan I'm willing to let go of ball mice, but I still want me some PS/2 ports because damn it you only give me four USB ports and expect two of them to be mandatory input devices???

  21. @adiwan All the while, they hope it's good enough to pass for "customer service," but bad enough to save them the fiver.

  22. @adiwan Ah, yeah, it's not a year-round snow, here. Maybe further north, yeah, but then the surf becomes a different story, lol.

  23. @adiwan Eh, it's California. It's a local gag that you can surf in the morning, and ski in the afternoon. Or vice-versa.

  24. @adiwan I've got a mountain about an hour away, so snow isn't like completely strange - I have used chains, and I do know of what we call "snow tires." Just never rose beyond "knowing about" to "thinking about." I feel like our snow tires might be "studded" or something, I rode in a car with them once and it had a distinct noise and vibration to it. Nothing bad, just obviously different.

  25. @adiwan Right. Mission accomplished, and hooray for road safety. (Meanwhile, I have never had to change tires for any reason other than baldness or flatness; maybe hand-rotated them, once?)

  29. @adiwan I suspect his talk about "being so embarrassed that he leaves the country" was code for "finding somewhere without extradition to the US to die in penury," but maybe that was just wishful thinking.

  30. @adiwan Well, of course today we'd announce results, just to make ME look foolish in the wake of my "Cassandra" gag! Rage rage rage, bad Trump impression, no lulz, I don't care IT'S OVER!!
