What makes a hero?

Is it the obsession with Hillary Clinton, talking about your golf game for hours when you’re not on the PGA tour, launching the next generation of hate mongers who make you seem quaint by comparison. Yup, National Hero, or at least Florida Hero, Rush Limbaugh is being honored with a flag at half mast. Denying the truth didn’t stop lung cancer from killing a defiant smoker and now this. There is controversy in Florida since there are rules on who gets this honor and being a friend of the Governor is not one of the accepted situations. Just enjoy the punchline that Florida is flying the flag at half mast for a guy who needed Viagra.

Because of me now they have a warning

So apparently we need a warning not to use glue on hair. There is a whole section dedicated to hair care products and glue is in a different place in the store.

Gorilla Glue GirlTM may be suing for the glue sticking things together and only warning not to use it on eyes, skin or clothing, but not hair. Scalp is skin, hopefully a judge allows that fact before the price of Gorilla Glue triples to cover the cost of litigation.

If I can’t have you, no one can.

In the early days of the pandemic, toilet paper became the must have commodity in short supply. Super surprising as none of the apocalypse movies covered this. We still have trees and factories so things got back to normal, but now arsonists are burning whole displays of toilet paper. Need to know if its one ply “rough and ready” or bear fantasy tp before I decide if the the toilet paper arsonists are heroes or villains.

The real story of Narnia

Does anyone else hear this in their head about a story of children falling asleep in an antique wardrobe in an old house thinking they were gone for days.

“Maybe we should remove the mothballs in the wardrobe, the children play in there.”

How Far After C

I before E except after C. Jeep managed to get two different answers while following that rule.

Cherokee “Chief” on the door spelled as expected for all the world to see

Pioneer”Cheif” hidden under the inside door handles. Technically this is not wrong since the I and E are both after the C.

Jeep spelling error discovered by David Tracy at Jalopnik.

Brian Regan has the rest of the I before E rule

Yes somebody is studying that. Sounds surprising, but believe it or not academic research on “Acting White” shows that studying leads to being a social outcast.

WW 84 review

Warning Spoilers Ahead

Warning Spoilers Ahead

We’ve had all this time without seeing the Charmin Bears on the big screen before every movie so it seems like the time to watch an analysis of the ad bears.

Warning Spoilers Ahead

Warning Spoilers Ahead

I’ve warned you enough. Here it comes.

WW84 is Indiana Jones 1981

  1. Opening scene is race through jungle with arrows flying.
  2. Hero is archaeologist with a secret life and a whip.
  3. Villain is pursuing artifact that leads to your doom if you look at it.
  4. The hero doesn’t look at the artifact.
  5. A trip to Cairo
  6. Truck chase with hero dragged under truck.

Plot holes

  1. Should the driver who said, “That’s not gonna happen,” invalidate the “I wish”, to clear traffic.
  2. Barbara got another wish in the helicopter. When Max Lord tries to get a wish in the office for more power the office worker says, “you already gave me a Porsche” and no power is a granted.
  3. Year is 1984, but the National Guard has a HumVee.

Overall

Overall score 8 out of 10. IJ81 would be good name for movie. Opening action scenes are strong and then it becomes a rom-com with the ghost of Steve Trevor. Also hate, hate, hate the lasso lightning flying. A whole lot of borrowing from Indiana Jones. Make sure to watch the credits.

ScreenRant also had problems with the body switch element of WW 1984.
