Doc, this is a speech to rival the one in Broadcast News. Highly recommend The Newsroom on HBO.


I've never seen Broadcast News all the way through.

Now, if you had referred to Network, I'd know that you would be suffering from some sort of delusion, since nothing will ever come close to the writing in that movie. :>

Woke up this morning got yourself a gun, you're mama always said you'd be 
The Chosen One. 

She said: You're one in a million you've got to burn to shine, but you were born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes. 

Oh, and YouTube is blocked here. :D

derp.

I meant Network. The 'mad as hell' speech. apologies.

My co-worker is an entrepreneur in the medical device industry. He's wanting to put all sorts of magic things in my ankle to make it better. I told him he can use my body when I'm done with it, for now, anything that involves opening of the skin will not be tolerated.

Speaking of movies, After a long time of dancing around getting Flightplan through Netflix, since I had my suspicions, I finally requested it.  How Jodie Foster ever got sucked into such a pile of dung like that is beyond me (Tip:  See the much better done Red Eye). 

Red Eye is a very good movie.

I worked in a small factory during my college summers manufacturing medical equipment.  I remember this gun-like thing that was to assist during surgeries by releasing clips to hold skin back.  The foreman tried to demonstrate one to his supervisor and the thing didn't work (it jammed).  Made me wonder how much stuff is made out there that doesn't work.

Speaking of inventions ...why are there no 'call' buttons on tables at restaurants and clubs?

We'd probably consider those to be culturally obnoxious.

Because of the strong liklihood that it would drive serving staff to become homicidal.

they kinda have them at brazillian bbqs :-)

*finds the text to Jeff Daniels evidently doing an Aaron Eckhart impression*

*unimpressed*

Heh. That's true Lily. :)

My first thought was that a call button would be great at like a comedy club, because it wouldn't interrupt the performance. But really it wouldn't be worth the possible homicidal serve staff.

Well...it isn't a book...it's a TV series. Scratch that it's not TV it's HBO. :P

I would have thought that someone in Florida, surrounded by cantankerous New Yorker transplants, would have seen the rather obvious issues with putting a call button at a restaurant table... :D

It's a speech of well-known statistics followed by nostalgia for a mindset that I don't think ever truly existed in the glowing form described.
