RIP MOV
« on: June 30, 2020, 02:33:43 pm »

This just in: a 40 year old $4 power strip gave up the ghost during a storm last night. It saved a lamp, an ancient LED alarm clock and a dual USB charger.

Thank you old friend for your many years of service.

With inflation, that would be the Four Thousand Dollar Surge Protector!

For those too young to get the reference, we're making fun of the Six Million Dollar Man...

Hell, a trip to the hospital and a 3 week stay in ICU is over half a mil now, Steve Majors Austin would be the Six Zillion Dollar Man today.

edit ps: Henry, thanks for doing the math with inflation! Turns out a Zillion ain't worth what it used to be, now only $5,774,639.50!

. . . Steve Majors would be the Six Zillion Dollar Man today.

Actually, $34,647,837.00 in 2020 dollars

And the character's name was Steve Austin, played by Lee Majors. How soon we forget . . .

How quickly conflated, even!  I shall edit appropriately.

...and Lee Majors was married for a few years to Farrah Faucett (the blonde babe in the original "Charlie's Angels") in the 70's.
When I was in HS, every dude had a pic of Farrah in their locker...

Farrah was unfortunate enough to die the same day as Michael Jackson.  All those posters and no love from the media at the end.

I think the most disturbing part was his wardrobe consisted mostly of leisure suits.  Don't forget the bionic babe Jamie Sommers played by Lindsey Wagner.  I am having a first thought wrong moment about making bionic women jokes....time to sign off

Ah, the days of low-budget special effects; when slow meant fast.

It's also amazing how quickly we swerve, although they were pretty powerful.

It's because they use a faster frame rate.

I tried using "the sound effect" as a ring tone for my phone a few years ago, but every time it rang I went into slow motion!
