Hey Raefire, do you know if the shutter was left open for an extended time on those lighting shots? Some of those, I can't believe there could possibly be that many lightning strikes at the same time.

There are some crazy-ass hills in the city. Sometimes I got the feeling everything (including myself) was going to topple over at any moment. Some of them really test your ability to drive a stick, too. There's nothing like idling in a line of cars on a 20% grade. That'll get your adrenaline pumpin'.

Oh, erm, to be honest I think I may have blocked those out. Actually, as long as somebody else carved it (or it was made out of heatproof resin of something) I'd have that up at Halloween. I actually own a surprising amount of pineapple themed items. Something about possessing that which might kill me perhaps. :)

And you can get it from Amazon.com for $14.   There seem to be a lot of funky ice molds there too.

The first feedback comment had me laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defective Carbonite Mold, okay ice tray, August 25, 2011
By S. Murray (NYC) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)    = Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 

This review is from: Kotobukiya Star Wars: Han Solo in Carbonite Silicon Tray (Toy)

Let me preface this by saying... if all you want is a tray that's easy to take cubes out of that are molded on a specific figure... fine, it works fine.

I was under the impression it would hold molten carbonite as it states clearly in the title this is a CARBONITE MOLD and it's very poorly constructed for this purpose. Secondly, it's SMALL. No, you can't put people in it it's a stupid ice tray so maybe if you shrunk people down it would work.

Extremely disappointed. But I guess it makes ice, whatever.

It really hit me when Mr. Rogers died when they did the little tribute on SNL to him.  Unfortunately, since NBC are dicks, I can't find or post a clip of it.
if you tell me what episode it was i might be able to find it.

Up until about the time I was ten, all my sister and I were allowed to watch was Mr. Rodgers, Sesame Street, and The Electric Company so there's a very special place in my heart for Fred Rodgers and Jim Henson.

There's a certain sheen to it plus the way iot sprouts from the "scalp" at the division is a little unnatural. I mean, it could be her real hair but if so, she needs so attention from a good hairdresser.

Had wurwolf not said anything I'd not really have noticed, she has simply scrumptiously distracting thighs. :)

I guess I'm mostly fascinated by dude's taints, and not in a way like, "Wow, that is super sexy" but more in a way like, "How the fuck does that even work?" Because if you look at it, there's a part where it looks like the dick just continues back past the balls. Is it part of the dick, or part of the balls, and are the balls just kind of there, attached to that part of the dick and it goes way back, or does the dick just start at the base? So if you were measuring your dick, why wouldn't you start way back behind the balls instead of right at the base?

These are the things I think about.

Underwear helps. One reason I don't enjoy boxers is that I'm constantly sitting on my nutsack by accident, or pinging it as I get out of the car or something.  Boxer briefs allow my boys to have a house while not bearing the stigma of w-t's.

Yeah, APGIL wears boxers and I have no idea how he can let them swing free like that.

Hairless inner thighs or sticky semi-elastic pouches?

Both, I suppose. When I remember to shave, anyway.

*crosses merkins off wurwolf's Christmas gift ideas list*

You were going to get me a gift?? AWWWWWW.

Homemade! From my shower drain.

I am not really a fan of homemade gifts, especially those made with pubic hair. Thanks for thinking of me, though.

Two women's first kiss at homecoming a first for Navy, too

Quote
VIRGINIA BEACH

It's Wednesday morning around 10:30 when the Oak Hill finally comes into view, its steel-gray bow peeking out from behind a grove of green trees at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek.

It's been three months since the dock landing ship left home for Central America, and all of the usual fanfare is waiting to greet its crew: crowds of cheering families, toddlers dressed in sailor suits, and the lucky, excited woman who's been chosen to take part in a time-honored Navy tradition - the first homecoming kiss.

In this case, that woman is 22-year-old Citlalic Snell. She's a sailor herself, assigned to the destroyer Bainbridge, but today she's in civilian clothes - jeans, boots and a stylish leather jacket. Watching pierside as the Oak Hill pulls into port, she absentmindedly twists the small diamond ring on her left hand.

A uniformed liaison who is with her explains how it's going to work: Snell's sailor will be among the first off the ship, and when it's time, Snell will be escorted onto the pier for the kiss.

The liaison asks whether she's nervous.

"Sort of," Snell admits.

As it starts to drizzle, the brow is finally lowered. A handful of top officers are first off the ship, and then comes a young woman in dress blues, Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta.

Snell cracks a wide smile.

"That's her," she says.

When Gaeta spots her, she smiles, too. They embrace. With all eyes watching, they keep the kiss short, and the crowd cheers.

As the rest of the crew begins to file off the ship, Gaeta and Snell slip away for a few moments alone before speaking to a group of news reporters.

They say they're both a little embarrassed by all the attention, but they understand it.

"It's a big deal," Gaeta says. "It's been a long time coming."

They explain that they've been dating for a little over two years, about as long as they've been in the Navy. They met right after boot camp. They were roommates at their first training school, where they both became fire controlmen.

Until September, when the military's ban on openly gay service was lifted, they worked hard to keep their relationship secret. When Snell came home from her last deployment in August, kissing on the pier wasn't an option.

"This is the first time we can actually show who we are," she says.

Adds Gaeta, "It's nice to be able to be myself."

While she says she already considers Snell her wife, they're planning for a wedding down the road.

And how were they chosen for the first kiss?

As is usually the case, it was decided in a raffle. Gaeta bought 50 tickets at a dollar apiece. While she suspects her division might have bought a few more on her behalf, she says she knows of sailors who bought more than a hundred, so she was surprised to learn Monday that one of hers had been drawn as the winner.

Snell looks at Gaeta and shrugs.

"I think it was meant to be," she says.

Living my whole life in California, I never suffered from seasonal depression until I moved to Portland, Oregon. One winter in that godforsaken hellhole made me wanna eat a gun. So glad I got the fuck outta there and moved back to California.

Hey, some people dig it. But it was too much of a shock to the system after living most of my life in socal. I'm not used to the sun not coming out for days at a time, or rain that never seems to stop. Ugh. No thank you.

Funnily enough, I hope to move to Oregon?Washington at some point in the future for that very weather. That's my scene 8)

Though I live in the Bay Area of California now, so overall it probably wouldn't be too much of a shock.

Truth be told, I couldn't live in southern California either. I've been there - just not for me. I love having actual trees in my backyard, not other buildings and maybe one palm tree. That, and I'd be kicked out for continually laughing at people complaining about it being "freezing" when it's only 60°. And then whining about the heat when it breaks 100°.

It's too bad the official movie posters for that movie are so shitty.  They sort of epitomize the "I don't want to hire an artist--just have one of the monkeys throw some shit together in photoshop" style of the '90s to...well, now, basically.  The thing which irritates me most of all is the vertically squished text they use for the title.

It's a nice image that they used, but the execution of the poster is just, in my mind, really fucking awful.

2001: A Brick Odyssey

Quote
My name is Raul Oaida (from Romania) and this is my LEGO tribute to the end of the space shuttle era. Proving that although retired, this machine can still fly, albeit in toy form.

The launch took place from central Germany (easy flight clearance) and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367.

We launched it on the 31st of December 2011, the equipment was recovered via GPS tracking 240 km S-E from a remote area.

I wish to thank Steve Sammartino for the opportunity to do this project and the german airtraffic control for the understanding.

They are easy to "domesticate" if you feed them drops of sugar water on your finger starting as soon as they emerge from the chrysalis.  They used to raise them in one of the developmental biology labs, following them from egg to butterfly back to eggs.

My favorite bug to photograph is the dragonfly.

Thanks, Those were probably taken with a Tamron 90mm macro lens.  I've also got a Canon 100-400L that isn't quite as sharp but is good for when you can't get close or need faster focusing.  Dragonflies will let you get pretty close if you move slowly.

I was stalking a red fox and her pups with the Canon lens once, trying to hide behind some mounds of dirt when she popped up on top of the one I was standing behind.  She was right in my face, I froze and looked at her for what seemed like minutes but was probably only about 15 seconds, as soon as I moved a tiny bit she ran off to the next pile of dirt and I got one good closeup of her face.  Searching my picts I can't find that one at the moment.

I see a lot of people bashing HDR for being nothing but a gimmicky effect, but I think it's pretty damn cool, especially when it doesn't overwhelm the overall photo.

It's been done for ages.  I guess since it's so much easier to do with digital vs. film it's getting overused a bit.  Used to have to cut out masks to cover up the areas of the paper you didn't want overexposed when making your prints, now since the imaging chip is the limiting factor you need to bracket your exposures and actually use the high and low images and merge them.

For a scene like this it's sort of necessary:
(http://www.science.widener.edu/~schultz/flagstaff/SunsetCrater/crw_9131a_std.jpg)

Sunset crater volcano near Flagstaff.  Dark trees, black ground, white clouds, pretty much impossible to get with a single exposure.

Nice photo, Marty. Great depth.

I think the bashing started with photos that overused it to the point where it looked more like a video game rendering than a photograph. Unfortunately, like you said, it's likely being overused due to ease, and as a result, I think people are less and less discriminating between "good" and "bad" HDR and just throwing it all under the umbrella of gimmickry.

The clouds are still way from perfect in that shot, and the side of the hill isn't black enough.  That location is a real pain to photograph, when I went back in 06 I left my camera in the car and just enjoyed the scenery.

I get that cameras are also imposing a narrative on a scene, etc.  But really, I don't get the point of hyper-realistic paintings like that.

Yeah, I can appreciate the skill required to do it, but don't see the point.  Painting and photography are 2 different arts, making one look like the other isn't all that interesting.  Same with Photoshopping a photo to look like a painting, fun to play with but kind of pointless.

Have any of these been around long enough to age with cracks and such?   Maybe they will look really cool in a few hundred years.

This also is a painting, and it's a little more interesting than the cans as an image, though not as hyper-realistic

Would it be just as good as a multiple exposure photo? I don't know. Probably. Sometimes the element of labor adds something to one's appreciation of a piece, like Chuck Close's photo-realistic self portrait (which is also impressive just by being friggin' huge).

Other times it's literally the only aspect, like "1000 Hours of Staring" by Tom Friedman

Whether that kind of thing is meaningful is entirely dependent on your ability or predisposition to appreciate broad poetic ides. But, if you look at an image as a means to get people to think in a different way or to imagine something, then it's at least effective in that way.

It came from this page (http://www.facebook.com/Milkyway.Nasa), here's a couple more pics from there:

I was going to say that top shot could not have been a single exposure, but if you go to the website they explain how many pictures were combined for most of the shots.

A single exposure long enough to see the Milkyway will give star trails:

(http://www.science.widener.edu/~schultz/flagstaff/AndersonMesaNURO/crw_9202_std.jpg)

But are less noticeable on a wide angle shot:
(http://www.science.widener.edu/~schultz/flagstaff/AndersonMesaNURO/crw_9200_std.jpg)

Images taken out on the Anderson Mesa near Flagstaff, AZ.  There's a telescope out there that a bunch of undergraduate schools share time on.

Funny that it never occurred to me to combine shorter exposures to avoid the star trails when doing sky images with my DSLR, since it's a normal thing to do when taking pictures through a telescope.  It would mess up any trees or buildings in the shot but the sky would look great.  Basically you take a bunch of exposures and line up the stars and add them together.

Like this one that was probably 20 exposures in different filters over 2 nights, adding up to 3 or 4 hours total exposure time:

(http://www.science.widener.edu/observatory/011008/horseheadHaRGB2.jpg)

I always wanted to take a picture of that, but never had a big enough telescope until the new one we got in '05,  it's so faint even with a big telescope it takes hours of exposures to see all the details.

Geology is at once one of the coolest yet most boring sciences.
I concur..
I really enjoyed my independent study on the South Carolina fault systems including the 1886 Charleston earthquake I did 11 years ago for my Geology minor 8)

I don't understand what's happening here...was it just a wave that started them off?

They're each bent in a way that has a lot of tension and the only thing keeping them together is each other.

That sounded sappy even applied to popsicle sticks...

Fun fact, this bear was caught just outside of my old dorm. In order to get there, it had to wander through several miles of town, so apparently this was one "stealthier than the average bear."

The jumping-on of shit is the thing I like least about cats. Except the allergies thing. That's the thing I like least.

It's easy to train a cat not to do this.  I just have a cat-safe room, and it is so small I figure I WANT her to be able to jump on things so she can get exercise.

But when dogs jump on me I do not like it.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact most of them drool and some have a habit of eating their own stools.  It seems dogs are always wet-feeling on their feet, even when they aren't.

If I were allergic to cats, I'd be one of those people who would have one anyway, and just sneeze all the time. :)

That one's easy, it's a stream of water onto a glass ball.

The top one must be a trick of camera movement or the lens, those little white lines that come off the bright spotlights show that the camera was moved, but I can't figure out how they got the beams of light to curve the way they do.  Must be some combination of focus/zoom/movement.

close to the spotlight, it looks like light beams, but further away it looks like water. i don't think the camera was moved. i think it's probably just streams of water. a drainage system with some light put in it, maybe?

I guess those lines coming off the bright lights could be the poles.  For water to spray like that it would have to be under pressure, so not just a drainage system.  And I guess the angle is good for the spotlights near where the water comes out to light up the spray.  But it's spraying onto blacktop, maybe a plane washing or deicing area at an airport?

Inspired by a prop from a street theater company (which was, in turn, an homage to Jules Verne's mechanical pachyderm in The Steam House) the Great Elephant is 12 meters high, weighs 45 tons, can carry 49 people on its back for a 45-minute promenade along the Loire River, and is powered by the motor from a city bus. But the not-in-Kansas-anymore part is that it trumpets, wags its tail, blinks its eyes, sprays people with water from its trunk, and has been known to pee on the sidewalk. The beast is but one of the Machines of the Isle of Nantes, a sculptural and mechanical oasis of whimsical creatures inspired by Nantes native, Jules Verne, housed in what was until recently a decommissioned shipyard and industrial wasteland.

Wow, that makes me want to try it, if only I had a high speed video camera....

Judging by reaction time of the guy looking down that entire thing is probably only about 1/20th of a second in real time, possibly shorter.  Figure normal reaction time of about 1/100th and look at how long it takes for the guy to react to the other guy letting go.

I wonder if they added weight to the bottom of the slinky.

Edit:  Reading up on this no need to add weight, it's all gravity and force vectors....

Yeah, playing with it a little shows it has a way to go, however I do like the random suggestions it throws out (mostly based on the colour palette in the pic entered it seems) when it fails to identify an object.

I think the artist of Lembach's pic is John Slaby, but that might just be a quirk of metadata.

Tallest condor in the world goes up 290 feet in the air.  Average wind turbine height is 200 to 250 feet for the tower.  But that seems to be quite a large wind turbine, which would be more like 300 ft.  And that's the tower, where the camera is at is currently above that.

Judging by where the top blade is coming into frame I'd say the camera is rigged to the blade.  Or what seems more likely to me somehow is that the photographer climbed out there.  Camera guys can be crazy like that.

I thought about maybe a helicopter with a telephoto lens, but it's not a telephoto lens. You can tell from the distortion of the blade closest to camera. You only get with with a fairly wide lens. Also, see how everything is pretty much in focus?  Definitely a wide lens.  You'd have to be too close to get it in a balloon or chopper I think.

There's some sort of guy wire on the other blade.  I assume there's one on the closer blade too.  Perhaps someone actually ascended this line, or perhaps they have a device that can self-ascend and take pictures.

I used to work in the nuclear industry, and we had all sorts of robots to do dangerous tasks, including taking pictures in hard to reach places.  Perhaps this is something similar.

I'd say the camera (with or without a photographer) is on a crane.  The ropes on the blades probably mean it's under repair, there's a guy on the top of the generator box doing something.  Or the thing is brand new, doesn't look like it's been in any weather yet.  They would be using a big crane during construction or replacing the blades.

Hmmm, could be a crane....

http://www.youtube.com/v/DxOYwWu7Xcc?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0

However, as you can see in the video, the blades are mounted from the center, and also connected by a large cable that would still be in frame.  This shot was taken from way off to the side.  Though it does appear to be brand new or under some sort of repair. 

I suppose it's possible that the crane was swung over to get the shot.  Might still be the most realistic explanation.

"Nighthawks" by Edward Hopper.
Awesome only to me, perhaps. This is my favorite painting. I first saw it as a young sailor back in 1986 at the Art Institute of Chicago. I sat and looked at it all day.
Once in a very rare time, you make a connection with a piece of art. It could be a song. A play. For me, it was this. I have a reproduction on my wall and sometimes I just
stare at it and wish I could go into the painting.

I've seen a lot of Jean's work, and it's great.  I couldn't think of her name to give her the proper credit, nor did I have the time.  But if I don't have the time, perhaps I just shouldn't post.

Am I crazy, or did you never call it "Madbots"? I never saw that anywhere. Also, did this member paint the picture or did Jean Jackson? Is this member Jean Jackson? Because you're not wording your post like they are. If this person is Jean Jackson, the hell is their problem?

I'm very confused.

This picture is actually called "Nightmads" not Night Bots as you have labeled it. It was done by Jean Jackson who has done a lot of MST3K art.

The thing was, if you had asked, I would have had no problem with you posting it if you'd made the proper attributions. It's not a shot I use professionally, however with you stealing it and modifying it, you've taken my shot of Jean's work and made it yours. Not cool.

The problem is he took my picture of Jean's painting, cropped it and posted it. Given my photos are all clearly labeled as copyrighted and not able to be copied, he knowingly circumvented my wishes about the picture. The "Night Bots" label is in the metadata.

Apparently they are friends with Jean Jackson, and I got the picture from this person's Flickr feed.  It was the only version that I could find through my work's filter, and decided to use it.  I didn't think they would even care.  Going back to the Flickr feed, it does say to not use their photos without permission.  I didn't notice this before.

I cropped the photo to match the preceding theme, hosted it to image shack, and incorrectly named it "Night Bots".

Jean Jackson is a great artist who has done a lot of painting incorporating MST3K characters into various works of art.  She has an ebay store here (http://stores.ebay.com/mst3kprints) where you can view and buy them.

Why would it bother me? Because I have things stolen on a regular basis when it comes to photos. Sure, that one was a shot of a friend's work that I would have happily share had I been asked, but I wasn't.

When you see something and like it online, if you take it is is stealing. This happens to me all of the time and I've tended to become a little sensitive about it. I don't walk into your house, see something I like and declare it mine because it's something I want to use.

For someone who makes a living inserting other people's copyrighted creations into her works, she sure does get touchy...

Jean is a friend and knows about the picture. *I* don't post someone else's work without attribution.

You can easily make your flickr photostream disallow sharing.  It gives people a "spaceball" when they try to save a file.

I have and he went around it. That says he knows that I don't allow sharing without permission.

Nobody declared it theirs. I'm sure it's annoying when people take credit for your other artistic photos (I'm assuming you have some), but this is a kinda-crooked photo of a painting that you didn't paint. Pick your battles more wisely and you won't be so stressed, methinks.

Not that modern (http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Kodak_Vigilant_Junior_Six-20) and if it's not that it's something very close, he could be really into retro and have one from as far back at the late 19th century that looks like that.

The shades seem to have some side pieces which are more common in the first half of the 20th century. Thing is, people often have an idea about the past that is very rigid, so when we think of the 40s we think everyone walks around in suits but they really didn't. Or look at this gorgeous yet renegade time traveller:

(http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvlp74NhQR1r2y32qo2_500.jpg)

He must have grown tired of posing for Abercrombie & Fitch ads and decided to use his time machine to go take down the Lincoln Administration.

Some douche creates then deletes an account to protest the RAMPANT THEFT AND LOOTING! of a photo he took of a painting.  What a shock!  Someone takes a picture of an MST3K related something and it ends up appearing on an MST3K related board!  Who gives a shit?  Really.

Then another forum pissing contest over I don't even know what!  Skimmed over it.  Don't care.

And then, the worst thing, only one truly awesome picture posted.  The little Darth Vader kid.  That was a win.

Yeah. Must be something like that, since he's in with the villains...

You can, but I know for a fact Wriston only shoots analog. I guess it's just such a low-flow fall it doesn't pool up much before getting to the ocean?

I don't know, even drips make an impact and indentations in rock. That's a full on waterfall in the sand. I am just trying to figure out where it's going. Maybe it's not going toward the ocean but under the rock instead.

Maybe it's low tide... and as the tide rises, the waterfall would drain directly into the ocean... ?

Could be that there isn't as much water as it looks like there is.  It could be all mist by the time it hits the sand.  There are some very high waterfalls that do that even with lots of water going over.

This one is incredible!  It looks like it, is that a real tiny little town carved into the flank of the cone (the white area facing us on the outer surface)?

Looks like a little quarry (compare the size of it to the width of the road and the rooftops you can see).  That patch of white rock is very different from all the black volcanic rock around it.

Looks small going by the rooftops, can't be more than a mile or 2 across.  Would be nice to know the real name of it for a Google Earth search.

Not a lot of info about the island on the web, I'm curious about the grooves cut into the inner cone of the volcano but can't find anything.

Does look like a hard place to get to, only helicopter and boat.  And boats can't dock a lot of the time do to high waves at the exposed port (not much of a port, more like one pier).

After descending a few hundred feet from the summit of Mount Timpanogos (11,780') I took a 15min break at the saddle and let a few long exposures roll. The lightning was pounding to the west and headed right for me, not exactly the best time to be above the tree line. I abandoned my plans of camping and within the hour bolts were cracking overhead as I made a long, wet, and terrifying dash down the 7+ mile trail with a full pack.
This composite image was taken over the course of 12min.
35 photos total ranging from 8 - 15 seconds each as the light faded.

The power of just sending off an email!  Something you never think of doing because you figure nobody would bother responding.  :)  I am always surprised when that works and actually get a response.

I did that once when I saw an old music video of a song I liked and it was listed as "Version 2" of the video.  I didn't remember any other versions and got stumped trying to find any info online about it.  So I found the artist's personal website (which she ran herself) and sent in a question through that.  5 minutes later, I got a reply from her directly. (Turns out there was just a slightly different edit of the video.)

Spent some time trying to get an image of Venus this afternoon, 5 days before it passes in front of the sun.  Tomorrow is going to be cloudy and after that it's getting so close to the sun it would be very hard to get a picture.  Even today the sun was heating up the scope making the image extra wavy and the sky so bright Venus barely stood out.  But the magic of stacking a few good frames out of thousands taken with a webcam and a little post processing gives you this:

Rutger Hauer. He played the android Roy Batty in Blade Runner among many other roles. I don't remember exactly where I found the photo. Only that it was from a fairly recent magazine interview.

http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/a_saUN4j7Gw

Thank you for this. That is my absolute favorite soliloquy in any movie. This scene still get's me choked up.
I'm quoting this from wikipedia:

"In Blade Runner, the dying replicant Roy Batty introspectively makes the speech during a rain downpour, moments before his own death:

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. [pause] Time to die.

In the Channel 4 documentary On the Edge of Blade Runner, Hauer, director Ridley Scott, and screenwriter David Peoples asserted that Hauer wrote the "Tears in Rain" speech. There were earlier versions of the speech in Peoples' draft screenplays; one included the sentence "I rode on the back decks of a blinker and watched c-beams glitter in the dark, near the Tanhauser Gate". In his autobiography, Hauer said he merely cut the original scripted speech by several lines, adding only "All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain" although the original script, displayed during the documentary, before Hauer's rewrite, does not mention "Tanhauser Gate":

    'I've known adventures, seen places you people will never see, I've been Offworld and back... frontiers! I've stood on the back deck of a blinker bound for the Plutition Camps with sweat in my eyes watching the stars fight on the shoulder of Orion...I've felt wind in my hair, riding test boats off the black galaxies and seen an attack fleet burn like a match and disappear. I've seen it, felt it...!'

Hauer described this as "opera talk" and "hi-tech speech" with no bearing on the rest of the film, so he "put a knife in it" the night before filming, without Scott's knowledge. In interview with Dan Jolin, Hauer said that these final lines showed that Batty wanted to "make his mark on existence ... the robot in the final scene, by dying, shows Deckard what a real man is made of.'

When Hauer performed the scene, the film crew applauded and some even cried. This was due to the power of the dying speech coming at the end of an exhausting shoot."

Love it. Although I like your version better, k1. Chocolate and apple pie . . . not so sure about that combo. Now pecan pie and chocolate cake might work. Lord knows the chocolate pecan pies at Whole Foods are friggin' awesome. Spice cake and pumpkin pie is brilliant. Aside from the cardiac complications, of course.

There is a certain 'Earthy' feel to them.  But possibly that descriptor only fit mine, rather than yours: my first typewriter was an old fully-manual one where the force of the fingers did all the work of making the impressions (don't remember name or even brand... but I'd recognize it if I saw one).  I was VERY quick at 'hunting-and-pecking' because I typed so much.  I got a Selectric maybe a decade later.  But I finally learned to touch type on an IBM PC ([c.1987] 8086 processor? I know it had a WHOPPING 20MB hard drive in it)!

I remember having to take a typing class in 7th grade and the witch who taught it gave everyone a C after the first quarter because "after one quarter no one is an A typist".  I didn't care, cause hey I got a C for a class I thought I was failing.  But some of the girls in the class, the ones who had gone their entire academic lives with straight A's had their hearts ripped from their chests.  They were sobbing like a bunch of, well, little girls.  For some reason all this talk about typewriters brought back that memory.

So I thought I would find something completely real (and therefore ineligible) that still looked like a fictional species.

Hence the picture of the Cat Faced Woman.

Used an old book, a really old book, the pictures of the typewriters in the book were like these:

I know the feeling. I had a manual typewriter as a teenager and I wrote a lot of letters on it (I had a lot of pen pals). The manual typewriter was an improvement over writing things out long hand, since it saved on hand cramps, but the electric typewriter I used at school was (as you noted) a HUGE improvement over the manual typewriter. I just kind of fell in love with the electric typewriter then because it was so much easier to use.

Computers were in use in the early 80s in offices, but they were mostly (if not all) MS-DOS based and not practical for home use or easy to use for word processing programs. They were an improvement over typewriters, though, because you didn't have to retype a document to make corrections.

Then Mac came along in the late 80s and blew everything out of the water. :D

Wow. I saw the MST3k trio first, and then I assumed the others were maybe ICWxp, but then there were too many, and then I was like, "hey, that looks like Mr. McQ over there" and then I saw who posted it and it all made sense. Now I can see the Hor-Riff-Ic riffers too. That's awesome. I don't recognize what seems to be Yoda in a cage and the other one between that and McQ, though...

There's something vaguely sexual about the word "Spoonacho."

It becomes significantly less vague when you break it up into two words. The thought of eating a "spoo nacho" doesn't exactly jump start the appetite.

Wasn't clear to me, so I'd not say everyone, most maybe, I don't know anyone who eats them but they're a fairly consistent seller so probably most have a familiarity with them. I suppose.

Not only did I recognize them as Poptarts immediately, I also noticed that they're the best flavor (Brown Sugar and Cinnamon). I am not an avid Poptart eater. I rarely have them. I generally eat them on the occasions when I remember they exist.

Finding three pop tarts in a package only means that someone somewhere has only one pop tart in theirs.  She is probably a little girl and she is probably crying her eyes out.  (Are you happy now?  Mr. "I've Got Three Pop Tarts!  I'm King of the Kitchen!")

Also, I am more than disappointed that this didn't develop into the Great Pop Tart War of 6/15/2012.

And I don't really care for Pop Tarts at all, but these are awesome if you can find them:

They taste like mini pumpkin pies and are great around the holidays (which is probably when you can find them.)

They are not something I eat all the time, or ever really.  They are too sweet for my liking and like you said the pastry is pretty much horrendous - dry and crumbly.  However the Pumpkin Pie ones are tasty.  Maybe having the crumbly pastry works for that since it kinda simulates pie crust.  I dunno.

I don't remember eating Pop Tarts when I was a kid.  I was a bowl of cereal kinda kid.

I ate some pop tarts when I was a kid, and they were kind of horrendous.  Like cardboard dipped in frosting.  Did you guys eat different ones than I did?

They vary. Also, Pumpkin Pie Poptarts sound delicious. I've never seen those, even during the holidays...of course I try not to go out during the holidays due to the holiday music everywhere...

Brown Sugar and Cinnamon is the worst flavor. Those are the ones always left last in the variety pack. When a store is running low on stocking Pop Tarts, these are the last ones left on the shelves. They are the Amish of Pop Tarts. Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pop Tarts are responsible for more people going over to Toaster Strudel than any other flavor. They are horrible.

By chance, do you think vanilla is the most exciting ice cream flavor?
