Troll or no troll, major high five to this woman for snatching that name. The smartest thing you could have done in the 90's is buy a domain name and then make a company pay you for it. There’s legitimate businesses around it. Facebook paid somewhere around $200k for their initial domain and then another $8M for the… Read more
To me that is a sign of how well he broke people down. Because, like, any rational person looking at that guy on the doc would not be able to see anything particularly note-worthy (he’s not ugly, or anything, but let’s be real; he’s very average looking), but I guess if this guy has spent ten years telling you that… Read more
Yeah, I would read it as a kid when my parents were done with the magazine, I think she would talk about interesting puzzles sometimes. I know there was a long discussion of the Monty Hall problem (I just checked, and she was explaining it correctly).
Did anybody ever find out if he legit scored 240 on an IQ test? Obviously he’s a smart guy, and at having an answer to everything that turns a person’s words back on them and makes them obsessively examine what’s wrong with them, always them, and not him, he’s a fucking genius. I’m really not sure how he managed to… Read more
I wouldn’t say “boring” because it’s actually rather fascinating, but like someone else said, they Netflixed the shit out of it. They s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d it out so much over 9 episodes, when it could just as easily been told in 4, that it seriously tries one’s patience.
Eh, I felt the opposite. For me the real draw of the earlier seasons wasn’t the “wacky characters having adventures” aspect but that it was all set in a mundane office with real office problems. HR issues, unionization, after-work parties, uh, “fraternization”, etc. When they got rid of all of the drones it just…
Honestly, I loved the coma seasons. It was a great way to take characters that I liked a lot and putting them into scenarios that just wouldn’t have fit in the context of the world that they inhabited. It was a good way for the writers to stretch creatively and give themselves a break from needing to come up with a… Read more
The Netflix special clears up the Bryan Douglas Wells bit. He was a victim. He was told to say, if caught, that it was black people who did it to him otherwise they told him they would remote detonate the bomb, which was on a timer with directions for him to do X, Y, and Z to deliver the funds in order to get the bomb… Read more
I know where that intersection is and some days those kids can be a little, pushy about cleaning your window, but I’ve only ever seen them get angry if someone was being an asshole to them first. Honestly it’s just a bunch of bored teenagers trying to make some money, I guess next time I see little becky and her… Read more
