So, you watched a show on a network you knew had nudity, and then complained about it afterwards. That sounds rather like ordering a pizza that you knew had anchovies, then proceeding to eat it,...

I’m not that bothered by this announcement. The younger trio too often seemed to be more interested in blowing things up than in the hard science. Jamie and Adam have always been the heart of the...

Yeah, SO incredibly "huge" that it takes you weeks and weeks to tell the difference, but only after gaining extreme "familiarity" with the equipment, recordings, etc.

We also know that if people DID borrow his cables and reported no difference, his reaction would be "tsk tsk, how unfortunate that your hearing/training/equipment is so inferior".

Ah yes, one of the standard subjectivist talking points, ie “you can’t hear the difference because your hearing is inferior, or you’re not trained sufficiently”. Of course, your criteria for being...

Saw it this morning. Good, fun summer entertainment. I liked the comic bookiness of it. I also liked the 80s feel, what with the pop culture references and all.

Or, to put it another way, a "like rate" of 7.7% to 1.9% in favor of Arny. But you're even more likeable. You're at 14%. :)

Actually, I read that part of the pre-dystopian part of the story IS covered, and changed. IOW, a different continuity.
