Nothing belongs to you.

This is one of the many reasons I love http://cinemageddon.net
Posted by a mod named Calavera on 13-01-29
A number of our uploaders are concerned about where their original posts are being reposted, so I’d like to take this time to shit on their declared wishes for us to have “CG Exclusives” by banning for a 1st attempt and spitting on their pet’s face for a 2nd. If we don’t oppose this self-serving mentality possessed by a small handful of our “sharers” the result will be more cunts on CG, to the detriment of us all.

We are here to share, not appease a select few uploaders. Our community spends countless hours translating films, dubbing films, searching basements and attics for lost gems, and I’d like to think there’s a decent amount of real life pillaging occurring to procure our media abnormalities. This hard work isn’t being done for the sake of keeping the films locked inside our clubhouse.

It doesn’t matter if you’re our #1 uploader and you donated a gold toilet to the beerfund.There is no such thing as a “Cinemageddon Exclusive”. If you want to share, but you need to avoid, God forbid, sharing too much, this is not the place for you. If you think it would be just swell for the uploaders to have their own DRM so that the people enjoying the films have to do so in a very specific and restricted way, this is not the place for you. We are not Apple, ffs…..

Tl;dr : Sharing is caring.
Cinemageddon is what it sounds like, rare old movies. I've got a bunch of invites if anyone wants one.

a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

One of the things i hate the most about stupid people, is the ones who know one thing, and think that knowing one thing is enough.

There's lots of things to know. There's other things. There's exceptions. There's things that make the first thing completely irrelevant.

The worse has to be time travel story discourse, and the morons who can't understand that time travel doesn't have one set of rules because time travel isn't real.

"Bill and Ted said X, therefore Terminator is dumb".

Just because one storyteller said that X is impossible doesn't mean that Y story can't do that.

And just because one storyteller said that X is impossible doesn't mean you need to create headcanon explanations about how something created as a narrative obstacle makes logical sense.

Of course, it's not fucking helped when dipshit writers add utter fucking nonsense. I'm looking at you Timecop, you utter piece of trash.

I'm a big fan of time travel stories, so it really hurts that other people who are fans of it are so fucking brainless.

edit: Oh for fucks sake.

When I wrote this, yesterday, I hadn't yet watched Tenet. Fuck Tenet too for using trash tropes and being completely predictable. Wtf were people acting like Tenet was something complicated?

The end of 1918 Pandemic: 675,000 US deaths over 760 days = average 888 US deaths per day

Day 308 of 2020 Pandemic: 290,000 US deaths over 308 days = average 941 US deaths per day

Day 381 of 2020 Pandemic: 500,000 US deaths over 381 days = average 1312 US deaths per day

Day 409 of 2020 Pandemic: 541,000 US deaths over 409 days = average 1322 US deaths per day

At today's rate, the US deaths from the 2020 pandemic would exceed the 1918 pandemic by July 2021, at 510 days.

Obviously, the average is declining, and the vaccine makes it unlikely that number of deaths will be reached.

I'm unsure if the deaths from the COVID 21 mutations will be counted towards the 2020 pandemic death toll.



Of course, the rest of the world suffered more during the 1918 pandemic:

The end of 1918 Pandemic: 50,000,000 worldwide deaths over 760 days = average 65,789 deaths per day

Day 381 of 2020 Pandemic: 2,469,000 worldwide deaths over 381 days = average 6,480 deaths per day

Day 409 of 2020 Pandemic: 2,710,000 worldwide deaths over 409 days = average 6,626 deaths per day

Zeta did not fuck up my shit.

I got out of town just as the rain started, and it took the power out for 2 days - but strangely the "coin on top of the ice" in the freezer is somehow still on top of the ice.

Remember before everyone had the internet and SMS?

When we used to chat on the phone with friends?

My phone was attached to the wall in the kitchen, and I used to sit on the kitchen floor just chatting. Sometimes for hours.

Feels weird to remember. Like another world.

Do kids these days do that?

edit: Oh, fuck. This is my 4th consecutive post about being old.
