I just had some cold pepperoni on graham crackers and they were really good.
A lady driving a beat up early 90′s Buick (broken light housings, front bumper hanging loose, dents in the side, the whole 9 yards) with a bumper sticker on the back saying “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
I leave judgement up to you.
“Spanning nearly 1 million square feet, the SpaceX factory currently produces more rocket engines than any other U.S. manufacturer, and will eventually produce 40 rocket cores annually.”
SpaceX is taking its name seriously.
“… assuming American football has an average death rate of 1.2 players per game. This is slightly higher than the average for association football (soccer), but an order of magnitude lower than the rates found in volleyball.”
Been occupied in the real world lately. Pretty much just marked everything in my RSS reader as “read” and starting over.
Here, have Jean Luc singing:
My mother is watching Christmas shows on TV… I don’t think I can even…
Well, if this is the last time I ever post anything it’s because me and my boss went all Donner Party on each other. Yes, it is supposed to snow today and yes, we are going up into the mountains for some surveying. The end of season work is always just the most fun possible.
It was… interesting. And really really long. But better than that pile of pretensions that is 2001 Space Odyssey if the whole “next jump in human evolution” schtick is your thing. Could have been a pretty sucky movie, but Matthew McConaughey is so good you could just watch him eat soup for a couple hours and go “yeah, that was pretty good.” Nice near future technology, I actually really liked the robots (a strange and original design that had lots of fun ways the director could mess with them, and well, I guess they had to fit a monolith in somewhere). And a soundtrack that was basically Inception but take out the tuba and add in a massive pipe organ.
It really could have been pared down though, about an hour and a half into it I started going “good grief this is dragging on.” And, you know what? Spoiler alert, but I think it would have been better if he had died at the end.
I heard one review say that he wasn’t that happy that they had to mix in “magic” to the hard sci-fi, but that if you had to do it this was the best way you could, and I would agree with that. But hey, I didn’t have to buy my tickets (traded some vanilla beans, actually, to my buddy for his hard cider).
TLDR, I give it 2.5 black holes out of 5. Very beautiful and great acting, but not really my thing.
