Other than their own shows and some kid stuff, there's not much in the way of good movies available on Netflix anymore.

Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Chan Wook-Park, Jim Jarmusch, Francis Ford Coppola, Richard Linklater and the Coen Brothers are all directors whose catalogs are nearly 100% available on Netflix Streaming. When you look at the back catalog, there's Orson Welles, Billy Wilder, John Ford, Howard Hawkes, King Vidor, etc etc etc.

So when you say, "not much in the way of good movies", I assume you're talking about Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

Stranger still, they define all those English words in the dictionary with... English words. One of the odd things about the dictionary (at least old printed ones) is that the shorter words tend to have longer definitions. Go ahead. Look up "and", "a", "the", etc. For that matter, look up "etc." but it's probably got a much shorter definition that doesn't involve arcane linguistic terminology.

Also, programming languages are written in themselves... but there are readily apparent underlying axioms so it seems less strange.

Why would you go for that when the Toshiba SCS-T160 [amazon.com] is far cheaper and can be installed in a US home [instructables.com] for $30 in parts (excluding the electrical outlet)?

I rarely use the water spray, but the heated seat and no-slam lid are very nice.

Wait, a heated seat? You're supposed to sit on them?

Then how do you wash out your socks and undies?

Why dont you just go listen to Ella Fitzgerald and/or the Ink Spots instead of waiting for them to compile those songs onto "their" soundtrack o.0

I do listen to Ella Fitzgerald and the Ink Spots. However, there is a special charm to listening to them armed with a mini-gun in a poisonous, radioactive wasteland with a dog as my companion while fighting giant spiders.

Though, I suppose I could always just move to West Texas. Same difference.

I just hope Bethesda takes as much care with the music in Fallout 4.

Wish on the moon
And look for the gold in a rainbow
And you’ll find a happy time

You’ll hear a tune
That lives in the heart of a bluebird
And you’ll find a happy time

Though things may look very dark
Your dream is not in vein
For when do you find the rainbow?
Only after rain

So wish on the moon
And someday it may be tomorrow
You will suddenly hear chimes
And you’ll have your happy, happy time

So wish on the moon
And someday it may be tomorrow
You will suddenly hear chimes
And you’ll have your happy, happy time.

Neutrinos are into physicists.
