  1. This is the best thing I've ever read.
  2. This is an admittedly ridiculous off-topic-topic Hence, "General Discussion." Wifey is gluten-free, along with other stuff, so when we order from Chinese takeout places she ends up ordering very picky stuff, and she always orders a ton of pork fried rice. Okay, I've had this picture of what a Chinese takeout kitchen (or even more so a Chinese buffet kitchen) looks like and runs like .... And it leads me to two questions... First off... The stupid general question of how the heck these places keep so much stuff going at once in the same kitchen. HOW DO THEY DO IT? I've obviously seen these kitchens, but only from the front of the place, and I've never worked in one or known anyone who has (I had a friend a while back who had a full half hour ramble about how Chinese Restaurants only employ Chinese Employees which was not at all racist but just completely paranoid and absolutely MAD that I literally told him he should do as a standup routine. A cut 30!). Seriously, has anyone worked cooking at a Chinese takeout place? HOW DO THEY DO IT? Every time I see into those places, their kitchens are as big as mine in this apartment I live in, but they have 5000000000000 things on the menu! And one of them is the &#*(#&% Pork Fried Rice (or whatever-fried-rice, which makes this even more baffling)..... Leading me into.. Second...Can anyone tell me how to do this at home? I've tried every reputable recipe I can find on the net, I have a wok that I know ... w... works? .... and I still can't make it the way Chinese Takeout places do. HOW DO YOU DO IT? Wifey also has a very specific trait that apparently some people have where they take the peas out of ... I mean, she'll take fifteen peas out of 500 pounds of rice. So I don't add peas. Is that why it's wrong ? If so, wh.......... what............... WHY? Third, implied by that thought: WHAT'S WITH THE PEAS? I think they're to bounce around in the wok to make the rice not stick together, but the people in busy Chinese Takeout Restaurants don't monitor the pork fried rice that closely. The places we go where we live have pretty good stuff, but I lived in NYC for .... however long (this is anonymous!) ... and its the same there. In NYC the place I got it from poured all of it out of the wok directly, like, to order. HOW DO YOU DO THAT WITH FIVE HUNDRED THINGS ON THE MENU? I hope someone out there has answers for me beyond "you work hard," which is the answer I've heard before that does not satisfy at all. My wife is gluten-free, so I have to order her a separate pizza from Pizza Hut (I think their gluten-free pizza is gross), but that takes the same amount of time..They just make it with ...... Not...... Well, I don't know, I don't get it, especially since the whole warning reads to me like "LOL this isn't gluten-free; it's just more expensive." So Pizza Hut can barely keep two things going: a pizza with flour and with ........ a different kind of flour. But there's AN INFINITE NUMBER OF THINGS ON A CHINESE FOOD MENU. HOW!?!?! WHAT IS THAT KITCHEN LIKE!!!??! Because ....... Floridonians, ignore all the NYC people. It's the same here. The food is better there, but all food is better there, because the water isn't recycled toilet water (Sad But True). But in either case....... ....... HOW THE HELL DO CHINESE RESTAURANTS RUN? I can order up $100 of Chinese Food from China Nonsense next door, and they'll have it in a few minutes. This is true throughout the country. Then you show up to pick it up and you see the weird strip mall the place in and you see the back door from the front door. What t........the..........f... ARE CHINESE RESTAURANT COOKS MAGIC? ......... Idk. That is all. I have many, many, many more illustrations. But people are gonna tldr me on this probably. I hate that. Don't respond to this unless you know the answer. To be like "this is long." TLDR VERSION: What is it like cooking in a Chinese place making 2000000 things, and how do you make the damn rice taste so good??? Seriously, what's it like, and can I do it here?

  4. They do? I would think it would be the other way around, but now that you mention it, that makes sense. I know they have a "Wish List" (and voodoo was on it) ... Do the just get the IPs before everything else and then fill in with.... A 44,000-sided die to pick which of the wishlist houses to use? LOL.
  5. YES. How the heck she never became a huge actress is a mystery to me. Just pull up her IMDB page. I've seen a lot of the stuff on there and no two characters are alike. Really, she plays many different characters here too . . . They kind of all do. I'm all caught up on the show and even I'm not really entirely sure what's what. That was the perfect episode to air before a week break. I'm hungry for the next one
  6. Is just about my favorite Trolly (but brilliant) Litmus test there is for ... People? Horror fans? ... People? I love it because it's total nonsense and will immediately expose people who didn't see the movie, didn't Get the movie, or are bigots. See, the brilliance is making the Babadook bisexual rather than homosexual ... Because if you see the movie, just about however you interpret it, you can read it as a metaphor or allegory or fable or something of some deeper meaning. If you come out of that movie thinking "The Babadook is a human creature to which I can ascribe simple human sexuality," and then you go on the idiot and get mad at people for ascribing some form of human sexuality you happen to "not agree" with, you are a clear fool. And have been played. Well. That's why the genius is really in making the Babadook bisexual vs. homosexual. People who lash out at that idea lash out for all different kinds of reasons, and they're all telling. Homophobia is just the most basic and boring. But if someone lashes out at the Babdook being bisexual, it lends itself right into the question of "Wait, so you think the Babadook is a gay man? Why's it a man?" And yeah there's evidence, but flimsy evidence, and once you explain the movie to people, it blows their damn minds. I'm not saying this is an End Game to homophobia. What I am saying is that I've called people on their nonsense about this and they have become more tolerant if only by going and rewatching the movie. That's a huge step for some people. Look, folks, I'm a straight cis white male. It's hard for me to get angry with any legitimacy against people being biased on the internet for that reason. Not because it doesn't piss me off, but because I don't have anything in my real life to Actually Anchor It To. Making the Babadook a Bisexual Icon circumvents that, because the offended person is automatically on the same ridiculous absurd ice I am. And every single time they go back and watch the movie. And every single time (so far, and I don't talk to many ppl, so we're talking four or five times), they come back like "what...that.... had... NOTHING TO DO WITH IT" and I let them get angry. Then eventually once they calm down at the absurdity (they're far more open to this after being "forced" to watch ..... what I think is one of the best horror movies of my/probably-our generation) ...... They have a realization. The whole thing is absurd. Why would that have offended them in the first place? The only legit response I've had from this is from a severe homophobe that said that it would still be like saying that Darth Vader was gay when he had kids . . . . To that, I respond that the first gay person I knew was a friend of my father's who had two kids before he came out. He was great to them, and he was great to us too. Hell, we called him uncle. Just an idea I throw out there into the ether, because I don't see it being discussed in this way, and I don't know if the people behind saying the Babadook is bisexual are .... even.. at... all .....trolling or whatever. If they're not.....No. That's not conceivable. There's no way that's a conceivable opinion. The Babadook is a personification of that woman's grief. And while I have heard people say that there were homosexual or pedophilic undertones to the film, I don't believe it. I think it's nonsense. I think the Babadook is all in your head. YOURS. Yep. Just a message in a bottle. Food for thought. Idk. Do other people think about things in this kind of .... Psychosocialsexual-whatever way? I'd be an idiot to say that horror didn't have the power to change the world, right? .... Right? ..... I will say though... If it were just straight-up and the Babadook is real (everyone interprets it differently - I didn't spoiler tag any of this for that reason) ..... Just a Real Thing.....? Honestly it would just scare you a whole bunch, right? I don't know. The Babadook as a straight film doesn't work and it doesn't sell itself that and it's not that. Then again, when I went to the Museum of Modern Art in NYC there were three (3) solid black canvasses hanging on the walls. .. .. .. .. . . So I have no idea what People are thinking about. But I know some of you. I think some of you would be surprised to know that you know me, and you've known me for years since Vault times, and I bounce between names, but .......... I feel like ... This is my community. And I feel like community is important, especially in ways like this. The Babadook freaked the hell out of me before I realized its message was positive. It's okay, you see. It's okay.
  7. RIGHT? So many things we havent seen anywhere else. My wife was like "nah thisll be over in like ten mins" .... made me think of that south park episode where kyle is basically dying and stan and the other guys are like "Hes faaaakinnn!!" Plus, we got a full-head-spin! A FULL HEAD SPIN!!! Wanna do the two-frame old-school final fantasy victory dance with me? No? Okay, I'll be here though. (still, they couldve definitely used that creepy mask the creepy kid had a few more creepy times... i doubt well creepily see the creepy last of its creepiness)
  8. Is anybody else but me watching this? You should. It's awesome.
  9. Is that a map of maps? Yo Dawg . . . I heard you like maps!
  10. Here's this! http://flavorwire.com/483530/50-of-the-scariest-short-stories-of-all-time I've read a few of those before and the list seems pretty solid. I never get over Stephen King though. His short stories are brilliant. You tell SK to keep it <30 pages and he's like "OMG I DONT KNOW HOW" Dude writes 2000 words a day. That's Ferserious. EDIT: The link isn't just SK stories they're all over the place.
  11. I see where you're coming from. Luckily he is a damn good actor and can pull it off (I thought so anyway).
  12. First off, for absolutely no reason besides your handle, it takes a lot to not respond to your comment by saying "shutup Dan. You're stupid." For no other reason than your handle! Anyhow .. I qualified my statement. I crap all over them for doing TWD too many times, but really, isn't it a worse Sin - all things considered - to do a literal repeat of a house? Awil was like two years earlier, LOL. To address the others.. I don't normally put much stock in what's generally agreed upon, and I thought the RUN house was... Was. *nods* Purge house was clearly just Scream. I stand by everything I said except that there was no weak link. I looked at the map and my pix and everything again and, yeah, there were weak links. So. . . . TOUCHE, you stupid, stupid person (again, just based on your handle and my constitutional inability to help myself!) I felt compelled to not respond to your post at all, since I normally don't entertain people a) who call me stupid, seem to be entirely lacking in humor (seriously, I pictured you as the storyteller - topical HHN reference! - and even read it in my head in that voice), and c) aren't really paying much attention (did ... did you read the title of this review? what do you figure spinning something backwards means exactly, person who read my review on a HHN fan forum we both belong to? Do...do I need to put my tongue in your cheek? Cus that's gross. I'm a married man.) . . . However, I had to point out that : 1) You can't say "Why the hell would I spend almost a thousand dollars every year to experience this event if people in masks be they scarecrows or vampires, didn't get me in some capacity?" and then ask why I would think the event owed me something . . . Still, it made me laugh to beat the bends. Self-awareness is for suckers. 2) What did YOU think of Scary Tales 2, person who has only gone the past three years and definitely, absolutely, 100% positively didn't go through that house? Is that a rabbit hole you want to go down, really? 3) There is no 3. It's fake news. 4) Jump scares are cheap, and I don't think that's something that's in dispute. In fact, "jump scare" is pretty much synonymous with "cheap scare." There's a vast difference between "scared' and "startled." A vaast difference. Learn it. Live it. Love it. "Horror" != "startle response" ...... Don't look it up in a dictionary. Just take my word for it. I Am Right - I Promise. E) My internal logic is spotless. 5) I am amused at taking criticism on my opinions from people who have only been to the event 3 times. It's like talking to a child. Therefore, I'll move along and just end on this note: telling people their opinions are wrong and calling them stupid is unproductive. Why not turn that vitriol into something useful, like crocheting a scarf or ... I don't know, watching the Autopsy of Jane Doe. Or ... I mean... Really, a very long list of movies. If you ever want to know what horror actually is, I can give you a list. I'm all about making human connections, and I don't want you to hate me, random internet stranger whose name literally says you love the entire city but posted just a bunch of hate! <3 Hearts and Scarfs <3 I think you are literally the third person - out of tens of billions - who has agreed with me about aved. Tens of billions. I guess they just don't like rock music, deadites, Ash saying nonsense, disembodied heads, or finally - FINALLY! - making it to Jacksonville.
  13. See, but, the joke here was that he's carrying the whole series on his back. The show would absolutely not be fine without him. Twere a joke. Only this, and nothing more.
  14. Posted a more thorough review ... Though I wrote one up of UTH first that was also pretty substantial. I'm copying and pasting these longer ones from Notepad++ ... Formatting gets kinda wonky and I can't seem to correct it. All the ppl telling me to rewrite ..... Are youse guys talking about the format or the voice? If it's format, this stuff is all very much readable in Notepad++ (I do this for a living). Is this a different type of encoding maybe? Got an idea how I can clean this up? I'd be happy to resubmit if anybody cared to read what I had to say If it's voice ...... No. My voice is my voice. Take it, leave it, or drink some water. I recommend the third thing; it's important to remain hydrated. Nope, way longer than that. At some point I just mentioned that 25 was .. Well... Out of 25, 26, and 27, which do you think is the best?
  15. "Stuff" in face. It's all the shit stuff they hang in your face. Usually it's fishing wire so it's invisible in the dark, but that's visible when light catches it, so they started using ..... Other stuff. Trade secret. In the Scarecrow house, though, they clearly use stuff that's just ... hanging there.. Think I inhaled part of one of those..... Idk what to call it... Netting? Gridding? Terrible-grade-giant-holed burlap?
