Yes they do. I've considered getting it, but I have a hand pasta maker that's really so easy to use and works really well that I haven't bothered. I did get the meat grinder attachment, which I'm planning on using to make burgers using the Heston Blumenthal technique.

Don't think we got the pasta attachment thingy, but admittedly there's still some pieces still in the box. What the hand pasta maker look like, cost, etc?

Probably should just google it, but this way is more fun.

Burgers sound awesome. I got some leftover fish, and the Mrs. just called me this morning to let me know that it's old and may not be something I want to eat. Now we have to decide whether to risk eating it, or risk eating the hospital cafeteria food. So yeah, burgers sound awesome... Smiley: rolleyes

Moving away from DVD bugs me in a sense. Not that I have anything against high-definition bluray stuff or whatnot, but I just can't justify paying $5 more to see Peg+Cat in HD.

You'll know if you're going to like Deadpool by the time you get to the opening credits.

The only thing I can think of that made me slightly lukewarm was the nonlinear narrative. Hie entire origin story is told in flashbacks. Plural. It's not a giant "2 years earlier" flashback, it's present time action interrupted by the occasional flashback to tell his origin story. It's a minor thing, but I felt it sort of slowed down the pace of the movie. I'm a sucker for linear narratives, though, so YMMV.

My theater was in stitches during the opening credit sequence.

I kind of like the disjointed narrative. Jumping from point to point in the story was a little confusing, but it was something different for the genre and that's always appreciated. My biggest problem was that the happy ending was very un-Deadpool. The last time Deadpool was happy in the books the world literally exploded. Literally. Also now that the R rating was found to work, more movies are jumping on that bandwagon. Wolverine 3 is aiming at it, and apparently next month's Batman v Superman's Blu-Ray is going to be R rated, which makes me not want to see the movie in the theater. Why pay like ten bucks for the censored version, right?

I guess it's expected that he would be narrating his own back story. I've always suspected I'd like Deadpool, I always loved wise-cracking super heroes, and all the previews had me in stitches.

I just haven't gone because I'm like "go to the theater... or get personal projects done at home... hmmmmm..." Guess which one wins 9 times out of 10. haha

I haven't even taken the time to purchase a Bluray player yet.. I'll probably get a drive for my computer. But I always ride the tech train a little behind so I don't need to pay as much. (financial limitations and stuff... aka " financial responsibility" aka, I'm boring at parties haha!)

It was about as coherent as the thinking got.

Went from some random thing on a Reddit science page, to reading xkcd what-ifs, to a video about 20k bouncy balls falling out of a helicopter, to thinking I really wanted to be one of those kids running around trying to collect as many as I could. That's about the point I realized I was never going to figure out what was wrong with the data I was pretending to analyze and it was time to go home anyway.

Yay Mondays! Smiley: yippee

They're often hilarious. Trying to explain them to the 7 year old who's wondering why daddy is laughing so hard at computer is another story though. On the plus side, she can at least get the gist of it, so we now know airplanes can't fly on Jupiter.

That's why you always have new videos of cats up as backup. That way if the little one asks, you just tab to that and show them. Works every time.

I like to start with "Awww, s/he's so cute" because that must be the baby equivalent of the generic "good morning" greeting or something. Followed up by the "so how are you sleeping?" question, because there's usually some amusing stories hidden in there. People fumbling for bottles at 2am while the "little cutie" screams and wails and the neighbors are pounding on the walls telling you to get the thing to shut up already, but it somehow doesn't wake the husband up.

Maybe just a little hidden schadenfreude in there too... Smiley: blush

I've been going with "left swipe" whenever people show me their baby pictures. I guess I could say "right swipe" if I really wanted to creep them out and stop them from ever showing the pictures again.

It's always a good idea to keep at least an arms length from anything that has a good probability of puking on you.

Also (because this is still technically an MMO forum I guess) this guy pretty much sums up my thoughts on the genre right now.

That was probably the reason I delayed playing it for years myself. Knew it was going to get drawn into it, and wanted to play other things first. Finally decided to give it a plunge about a year ago though. Beyond what's in the article, cutting the cord and living entirely off of cell phone data means it's one of the few games I can actually play now without going over our 18GB/month.

Go figure. Smiley: rolleyes

Good 'ol CYA, never underestimate it...

It's just a fascinating glimpse into bureaucracy. Doctor hands stuff someone who reviews it and gets the paperwork together for the referral and then it goes to the tech who sends the request over. On the other side there someone who receives it, and then passes it to someone else who puts it into the system, then the doctor in the new location has to review it and then call the patient and confirm, then pass it onto someone else who does the scheduling for the appointment. So you get referred in system, and they say "we can set up your appointment in one hour in this room with this person if you'd like," out of system the info passes through 7 different people and takes 9 days and the appointment is at least another week after that. Amazing how many people will have access to your information for such a seemingly simple thing.

Good times. Smiley: rolleyes
