Guilty. If the movie sucks, we tend to savage the hell out of it (though hopefully not loud enough to disturb others overly). Rapt attention is reserved for a good movie, but bad movies have their own appeal...kinda. Were we at home, we'd likely just have turned it off, but some of us at work made weekly outings for dinner and a movie, and the bad ones were more fun.

Also: Rocky Horror Picture Show showings. Have props ready.

And were I suffering a condition where flashing lights would debilitate me, I'd have a script/block/setting to prevent animations and flashes (already block videos just for their irritation when unexpected/unwanted). Twitter can do what it wants, but I as the person surfing the net can simply say 'no'.

Not going to defend the person sending it: he demonstrated intent to injure and was successful in it. Do however feel due diligence is required if you have a medical condition that is visually triggered...and surf the net.

That's only if you're purely random. The point was preventing easily researched information undermining your account. To point, one of the questions for a service is : name of your favourite restaurant. If people were to 'know' me, they'd guess ones I went to, and might even guess/know the right one. The problem for them is the answer I chose IS the name of the restaurant, just in a different language. There is next to no memory effort required for me, but it isn't something you'd find from facebook or twitter or asking a best friend. Basically it's using 'jedi truth' for your answers and understanding of the question.

Might not work for some, works easily for me, and is entirely limited to the asinine security questions we get demanded to use. I'm not arguing the merit or lack of security questions, only that they need not be a huge flaw some portray them as.

If you go far back, doesn't everyone's true homeland come from the same area? It's rather arbitrary to claim 'this is the starting point and only from this point things matter'. As irrational as calling the 'First Nations' of north america 'natives', when 'First Migrant' is more apt.

Though that one video puts it into a darkly amusing perspective.

It's totally the Jews fault. A seven day war? That wasn't even remotely enough time for the hashtag groups and special interest groups to start lobbying sentiment and politicians. Isreal should have drawn it out, maybe shown some poor drowned kids on a beach or creatively edited some child soldiers to appear bystander victims. But no, they had to do it quickly, so now all people know is 'bad jew bad, homestealing child killers"

I use CC even in languages I understand. Sometimes it's the background noise or multiple people talking (in the movie, or kids running around irl), sometimes the speaker mumbles, sometimes I have the volume low/muted, and sometimes they just speak so damn slow and I'm feeling impatient. I also like when the CC is in another language so as to give to alternate impressions of the dialogue (though if the 'sub' is bad it drives me nuts 'that isn't what they said!' :P ).

So by all means, continue doing CC. Some need it, and some just enjoy it.
