Then the boss told me some of the trees in my yard aren't safe (true) and he'd give me a good deal.
He is quite mistaken if he thinks I'm going to hire a crew that just damaged my property from across the street to remove trees on -my- side.
It's hard to believe that a movie franchise that took 3 years between each of the original movies has so much content available today.
11 movies, 2 live-action TV shows (with a 3rd starting this month), and multiple animated shows, not to mention novels, comics, and video games. And toys... I owned so many of the toys in the 80's.
The spinner hard drive behind my home backup system started making noise and vibrating enough in its dock to shake the desk. I guess it's time to replace it... going for an SSD.
If it weren't for the 6TB "MEGABACKUP" drive my wife got for music, photos and generations of minecraft server backups (that minecraft map is an absolute unit), this would be the last spinner on my desk.
I would like it if devs would quit using the name of the programming language to name projects...
pyfoo, gobar, etc.
I think this got started with the mission to rewrite every Perl script in Python, and the only differentiator was the new language, and it was important for the holy mission to make it clear that this was the new, better, Python-based version, not that old and busted Perl version.
You ever think about how valuable rope must be in a pre-industrial society, yet everyone in movies cuts it like it's disposable? Stranded on an island, only one rope in your whole world? Cut it to free the prisoner.
It drives me crazy. I've spliced rope before... it's a lot of work. I've made rope... it's a lot of work, and I started with pre-made fiber strands. Stop cutting rope like it grows on trees!
Ultimate translation crime: the subtitles say "knit" but she is clearly crocheting.
I think the Japanese word in the audio is 編み (ami), which means knit or crochet (and is the first part of amigurumi), so if the translator isn't seeing the video and has no translation notes to aid them, they literally have to guess.
