do action movies know they can have more than one female character
Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions.
This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.
The “sea elephant” video Realmonstrosities posted in their article. I remember footage of these animals in nature documentaries when I was little, and I’ve written about them before, but I have NEVER gotten over how fanciful they are. Isn’t it SO FUCKING WONDERFUL that there are animals like this? It’s like an insane fairy-tale being nobody would ever believe. It’s like a cartoon ghost.
Yes, those are adorable beady eyes, and the “trunk” out the top ends in its mouth. It spends almost all of its time swimming in what we would consider an upside-down orientation. It has one fin on its “belly.” Its eyes are incredibly sophisticated, some of the most advanced of any mollusk. It’s impossible not to see wonderment as it looks around and around in circles, though it’s likely just looking for prey.
YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
REGIROCK SOUNDS TERRIFYING IF I HEARD THAT OOMPHING I’D RUN 2000000000000000000000 MILES AWAY
Sounds like a nightmare fax machine trying to dubstep
And this, gentlemen, is a prime example of how immensely memorable good sound design can be, along with the entire works of Ben Burtt.
just-a-radical-dreamer asked: Hey bogleech. Do you know anything about Florida woods cockroaches, also known as palmetto bugs? I've seen theme on porches at night in Florida when visiting relatives. I don't know much about them other than they are a type of roach.
"Palmetto bug" actually seems to be a colloquialism Floridians give any and all large cockroaches, including the ordinary American cockroach, and in my experience many will fiercely argue with you that, no, Palmetto bugs are an extra-special Florida species bigger and scarier than any other inferior roach in any other state.
The Florida Woods roach is also called the skunk roach, since it can spray a defensive odor when upset. It’s very very prone to getting upset, too; if you bother one you’ll hear the little hissing, spurting sounds. To me the smell is almost identical to overwhelming artificial cherry flavor, like in cough syrup.
I used to find them all the time, and they made great little aquarium pets. They’re not house-infesters but reproduce pretty readily in captivity.
Unfortunately I learned that their nasty candy smell is ridiculously attractive to ants, who can be tiny enough to slip into any conceivable air hole. Once the ants have found their tank, it can flood with enough of them overnight to kill every last roach.
This happened to me twice, and in one case the ants moved on to eat some other pets. I haven’t seen any skunk roaches in a year now, but I might try them again, maybe in a separate room with ant traps around.
And there you have it, everyone.
