LOOK, THE LATENCY FALLS EVERY TIME YOU CLAP YOUR HANDS AND SAY YOU BELIEVE
#2258 "Solar System Changes"
"Actually, Jupiter already has a very impressive ring system!" --someone who knows Jupiter is within earshot
#2257 "Unsubscribe Message"
A mix of the two is even worse: 'Thanks for unsubscribing and helping us pare this list down to reliable supporters.'
#2256 "Bad Map Projection: South America"
The projection does a good job preserving both distance and azimuth, at the cost of really exaggerating how many South Americas there are.
#2255 "Tattoo Ideas"
The text ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US with a lengthy footnote explaining that I got this tattoo in 2020 and not, as you may assume, 2001, but offering no further clarification.
I was actually a little relieved when I learned that JPEG2000 was used in the DCI digital cinema standard. I was feeling so bad for it!

There's some flexibility depending on your standards for measuring runtime and the various special editions. If you still want to have a party, I'm sure you can find some combination that works.

I never got around to seeing that movie about the battle (of Midway).

Billboard's "Best of the 80s" chart includes Blondie's 1980 hit "Call Me." QED.

I'm compromising by picking a weird hill to lie on.
#2246 "Christmas Presents"
"The parisitism might be mediated by a fungus!" exclaimed the biologist who was trying to ruin Christmas again.
#2245 "Edible Arrangements"
Any arrangement is an edible arrangement if you're hungry enough.
#2244 "Thumbtacks And String"
A tattoo of a tattoo parlor receipt
#2243 "Star Wars Spoiler Generator"
The heroes seem to be gaining the upper hand until Darth Juul manages to flip the switch on the car wash control panel from 'REGULAR' to 'PREMIUM.'
#2242 "Ground vs Air"
Water is thinner than both, and fire is *definitely* thicker.
#2241 "Brussels Sprouts Mandela Effect"
I love Brussels Sprouts Mandela Effect; I saw them open for Correct Horse Battery Staple.
#2240 "Timeline of the Universe"
Not actual size, except technically at one spot near the left.
