Random non sequitur posts catch-all thread

He doesn't even look anything like James Woods!

I'm honestly kind of sad the Ferrell/O'Reilly version was, at least from what I've read, not great. But Ferrell is spectacularly hit-and-miss in the cinema anyway.

I don't get why the reception to it was so bad. It wasn't good but there was still some pretty funny stuff. I wonder if people thought they were going to watch an actual Sherlock Holmes movie.

From what I read, it just was kind of the same old Ferrell humor, but I'd give it a shot if it ever came to Netflix or something.

My favorite Sherlock:

And in keeping with the topic of the thread, I’m listening to far more Post Malone than could possibly be healthy.

Watch Dogs 2 has some of the most fun dress-up since Resonance of Fate.

I enjoyed WD2 way more than the first.

It's much better than I expected. I grabbed it kinda randomly because a friend liked it, but it's got a great vibe. Way better than the super-grim-and-serious first game.

Hah! I just installed it yesterday. Haven't played much but the first thing I did was drive over to Pier 39 to check out the seals. They were right where they should be! (My wife and I were just there last year)

McKellan does a fine job, but the story just isn't that interesting.

I massively loved everything about WD2 except the insipid story. The whole "dudes the city is in peril but we will save it with social media because we're millennials yo" thing really grated. If it was done tongue in cheek it could have worked, but it tried to be Very Serious at the same time, and the ludonarrative dissonance was just generally extreme.

I remember being at the very end fighting the big bad guy, with no clear idea what was so bad about him except that he was smarmy and had a man-bun.

Still a great game, would play again (skipping the cutscenes).

I never heard of people using WD2 just WD40. I'm not sure why you would use it in a fight. Do bad guys squeak now? Also it would make them to slippery to hold on to. Oh is WD2 less slippery than WD40. hmmm if so I guess it makes sense to use it on bad guys.

I genuinely believe there is no way to properly fold a fitted sheet. Its a plot.

I effectively have two desks now: one that was moved to a suite way down the hall and a stand-up station just off of the lab I work for. I've had to buy a second water bottle and coffee cup. NBD, expect that I have left so many half drunk* cups of coffee behind over the past week.

* Half drank? Half drunkered?

Half finished.

Half-full.

IT has become clear to me that Mary Poppins and Pennywise are one and the same or at least the same species. Both show up every 27 years or so. Both are attracted to children, gross. Both have reality warping powers. Both have a thing of making people float.

You might say but Baron they don't look alike at all. Come on think about it. Pennywise can change his shape. His true form isn't a clown. That is just one of his many costumes. Think about this, they both like frills, umbrellas, balloons, and have the same dance moves. q

Consider that Mary Poppins thinks she is practically perfect in every way. Pennywise thinks he is best thing since slice bread. The ego on these monsters are one in the same.

I will grant you that one seems to feed on death and fear and the other joy and happiness. Hey we can't have pizza every day. A immortal being probably needs a balance diet.

Wake up people.

Wait, are we saying that....Ben is Glory?

I have a different, though related, read on Mary Poppins.

Mary Poppins is omniscient, omnipotent and only interested in the wellbeing of children, and wrathful to those who wish those children harm.

Sound like anyone?

Yes, she does sound like Demeter

Too bad Amazon Prime wasn't around 15 years or so ago to rescue Farscape like they did for the Expanse. :(

Not exactly prescient (since they're not making new episodes), but close!

‘Farscape’ comes to Amazon Prime Video on March 19th

I think I'll go wake up the Farscape thread...

I know I work with allegedly civilized people, but the refrigerator at my job is what I'd expect if I worked with a pack of jackals. And that's being mean to the jackals.

And so it is written, for every office, a bioterrorist.

Schnitz doesn't have ranch sauce any more. I'm not sure how much actual ranch* it was given it tasted like just sour cream with dill in it, but that taste was awesome. My life is ruined.

*I dunno what's in normal ranch dressing
