I’m about to follow up (on an earlier post) with a review of the movie, Star Wars – Rogue One. I have in the past mentioned that I grade movies on a 10 point scale… and been given grief that I never give a movie a 10. To help clarify my review of Rogue One… I’m preliminarily posting a guide to TexasLynn’s movie rating scale.

  1. The Best Movie Ever – The Holy Grail of Movies – I’ll never watch another movie other than this one ever again. (Haven’t seen it yet.)
  2. This was an excellent movie – One of my favorites of all time. I will watch it again and again. (Blade Runner, Braveheart)
  3. This was a really good movie – Often a surprise, and one I look forward to seeing again. (Monty Python’s – The Holy Grail, Looper, Groundhog Day, Mad Max – Fury Road)
  4. This was a good movie – But doesn’t quite get over that hump. I may eventually see it again, probably. (Ant-man, Prometheus)
  5. This was a “meh” movie – It was not a complete waste of my time to see it, but I probably won’t watch it again. (Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, Suicide Squad, Ex Machina, Batman vs Superman) A lot of movies fall in the 5-6 range.
  6. This is a sub-par movie – I would just as soon have that two hours of my life back. (Star Wars: Episode III, Jurassic World, most sequels)
  7. This is a bad movie – I’m mad at somebody, the producer for making it, the theater for showing it… (Star Wars Episodes I & II, Independence Day)
  8. This is a really bad movie – I’m not only mad, I want my money back (This is the End) (I’m pretty good a avoiding here and below)
  9. This is a really, really bad movie – I’m mad, I want my money back, and I want to be reimbursed for my time. (The Never Ending Story, Highlander II)
  10. This movie is not only bad, it is a stain on and harm to society. The producers/directors/actors should be punished; preferably by being prohibited from every working in the film industry again. (Most stuff produced by Michael Moore and Al Gore)

Happy Valentine’s Day. I decided to celebrate by posting my favorite valentine themed comic this year. Enjoy.

Link to Comic Strip Buni: Here

Ryan Pagelow actually had several V-Day themed strips over the last week that were pretty good.

I thought the Prickly City cartoon (which I follow religiously) was really good today (on several levels). As a technical guy, I’m always telling my users to “reboot”; which in my defense solves the problem 90% of the time.

If I’m ever on life support and flat-line… don’t panic. Unplug me… wait a few seconds… and plug me back in. If that doesn’t work… then PANIC!

Monkey - Fling DungIf you start with a cage containing four monkeys, and inside the cage hang a banana on a string from the top, and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana. It is then that ALL the monkeys are sprayed with cold water. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with same result. As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray ALL the monkeys with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new monkey. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, ALL of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original four monkeys, replacing it with a new monkey. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm– because he is now part of the “team.”

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by the fourth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana. Why, you ask? Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been!

This is how today’s House and Senate in the U.S. Congress operates; and this is why, from time to time, ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!

This is meant as no disrespect to monkeys. You can never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.


Humor aside, I’d actually be in favor of doing this. Not just term limits (which are also a good idea); but set a time frame (like years ending in 00, 25, 50 & 75… or whatever time period) AND on those years ALL House and Senate members are replaced. When those years roll around, no one who has ever held a position in the House or Senate is ever eligible to hold either of those offices again. That would include all current office holders and would mean that House members could not just run for Senate (and vice-versa). We basically clean house (pardon the pun) ever quarter of a century. This would work even better in conjunction with term limits.

Isn’t it great what stupid monkey’s can teach us.

Flying McCoys - Beware of Blog

I still love the comics. I even pay for the subscription over at GoComics.com

Glenn McCoy (of the Duplex and other comics) is hilarious. It also helps (in the humor) department that he’s conservative; which also adds a twist of intellectual honesty as well.

HEAR THAT WILEY MILLER (of Non Sequitur)! 🙂
