i've seen a few advertising tweets recently that say "like this tweet and we'll let you know about" whatever. presumably there's, like, a python script or something that can extract them all, but i just imagined some poor intern sitting there writing down the twitter handle of each person who liked it.

Judging by Conor's Twitter post, it looks like we're gonna get John Wayne's The Conqueror as a Rifftrax sometime soon.

The Seinfeld episode "The Masseuse" has an interestingly prescient scene where Elaine is trying to convince her then boyfriend Joel Rifken, who has the same name as a serial killer, to change his name to OJ.

Feeble sequels had more of my respect when they had to commit this shit to actual film.  I wouldn't riff this with Andy Dick's mouth.

RIP: Snow days. My son's school would most certainly be out tomorrow due to an unseasonable snowfall, but since everyone's already distance-learning, they see no reason to close the school.

I just had a Seinfeld-esque conversation with co-workers about the social obligating of returning greetings in the hallway with an equivalent greeting. I started it by saying that security officers at the school are my favorite people to pass in the hallways, because they do the polite nod. No conversation, no small talk, no how are you, just the polite nod and go on. My least favorite greeting is the "Hi, how are you?" Not only are you socially obligated to respond with "Fine/Good/Etc" to preempt a potential stop and chat, you have to ask "How are you?"

I don't care how everyone I pass is doing. I'm just trying to get to my destination, god dammit. Haven't we, as a society, passed the need to ask passersby how they're doing? Unless you're a close friend or something similar, the polite nod is the optimal greeting.

I accidentally stumbled into a shortcut at work, where when someone asks how I'm doing I say "Doing good" but with an inflection that makes it sound like a question. It works as both a response and return of the query, to which they usually respond "Yeah" without me slowing down.

I speak with a bit of a lilt, so I do this completely by accident all the time, provoking unexpected replies on how the other person is doing.

Who would win a double-hypothetical fight between Rusty Shackleford and Regina Phalange?

Rusty would whip out the pocket sand and it would all be over.

Tried Amazon Prime by 8am delivery for the first time, ordered last night and the package was at my front door when I got up this morning.  Checked and it was delivered around 5:30am.  I needed to replace the CPU cooler on my PC and spent too much time yesterday deciding between staying with liquid or switching to air, so ran out of time to run up to Microcenter to get one.  Posted about that in the computer thread.

I just discovered Amazon Prime now has the rest of the seasons of Farscape. I forgot how fun that series was.
