The PIE numbers are actually a bit aside from the point here — those are impressive and important to the team, but as you know, agnostic to having a positive or negative impact on the game. The way clutch numbers are useful for a given team in a given season is that they are the best way to account for score effects…
That is not what data nerds say about sustained crunch time stats in basketball.
Good to see the young fella get the thwack back. Serve it up, he’ll down it. Put the cards down, he’ll filet them. Hell, mop the floor and he could walk on it. I think you follow.
Ah shit here come a bunch of grammar nerds. ‘Could care less’ is perfectly fine.
The weird german shit thrown in. The buck with the cross between its antlers and the helmet that is very tuetonic knight in the Porsche.
There’s also the convenient fact that Chris didn’t have parents to come looking for him when he went missing. If you’re picking out people who are easy to abduct, not having any close family (to put pressure on the police and organize a search) would be an important qualifier.
One of the most interesting pieces of conversation come from the desires of the blind man who “purchased” Chris at auction. He starts off their conversation by sharing how much he admired his work, how he failed at being a great artist bc he lacked “the eye” and how it took him to his current path - which, if you…
UCLA playing its B+ game is truly a frightening prospect for anyone. It’s A game might be historically good.
UCLA, Arizona, or Oregon. If any of those three win the Pac-12 tourney they should be the #1 seed in the West over Gonzaga.
When Georgina spills some of the ice tea, it’s because she is almost put under a trance by the mom stirring her tea with a spoon
Did anyone else notice the Lion symbolism? She had a stuffed lion next to the bed, the chair the mother say in to hypnotize had lion heads on it - with all of the symbolism, this can’t be accident. I looked around but couldn’t find anything other than general lion symbols we all know...
When Rose is eating Froot Loops cereal and drinking milk separately, it’s because she can’t have the white (milk) and coloreds (froot loops) mixing at all. Even they have to be segregated. And if you notice, she takes 3 big sips of white for every one piece of colored, demonstrating her huge preference of white over…
A couple things noticed by my wife and me*:
Wasn’t it a fancy letter opener and a hunting rifle. Not saying that’s as obvious as a croquet ball, but those are both in line with that premise.
I believe Rose intentionally targeted people who had bad habits (i.e. smoking, nail biting). That way the dad could tell the same bullshit story “I used to have the bad habit of X, but then my wife hypnotized me. Now when I even think about it, it makes me want to throwup.” Probably used that line to get a lot of the…
Also, up until he starts using the phone camera, he doesn’t have the flash on his DSLR activated. So he takes photos several times throughout the film, but never with a flash until the two phone incidents causing the bugouts.
Something I thought was going to be a detail, but wasn’t, was Chris killed the first two people with basic white people shit (deer head, croquet ball). I thought it would continue but I think he ended up with a knife and rifle later.
I liked how the dad went on a long rant about his violent hatred of deer. He dies from Chris impaling him with a deer’s head.
Got to give so much credit to Bradley Whitford (Rose’s Dad) for his performance. Nearly everyone of his lines has undercurrents and hidden meanings, but he really plays it off under the mask “just being a silly and occasionally inappropriate dad”
They’re different people with different experiences.
