If you take the number of farting and masturbation jokes in this film and divide it by the I.Q. of the director, you actually get a whole number.

So I was playing around with my DVD player and receiver last night trying to figure out why it wasn't playing DTS audio. This is a new DVD player, and I hadn't really played much DTS stuff with it. I get out the manual and realize that DTS output is off by default. A quick setting change makes the DVD player output DTS. Why in the world would you disable this by default? It also defaults to only outputting Dolby Digital 2.0! That's the second DVD player that I had to make that change on, what the hell! DVD is touted as having all these really cool features but they leave them all off. Most people wouldn't even think to look in the manual, they'd just expect it to work. I sure did.

Don't call me Jimmy. Call me Necron, Romancer of Death.

This new microwave I have has a really cool feature. There are numbers on it zero through nine just like any microwave but if you don't press any heat setting or any other setting and you just press one of the numbers it automatically (one button press) cooks on high for X minutes. It may seem like a stupid feature but it's really handy. My laziness has just gone to a new level!

Researching how to make the perfect baked potato now. There isn't much to cooking baked potatos, even I can handle it.
