There's an old saying. If you don't want someone to join a crowd, you ask them, "If everyone were jumping off of a cliff, would you?" Well, I have. So my answer would be "Yes". True story.

What Do You Think That They'll Notice We Got Wrong in the Future?

I was watching Disney's Fantasia the other day with my daughter, and there's a segment based on Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, and it shows the birth of and death of the dinosaurs. The movie is animated beautifully, it's completely gorgeous, a work of art, but I couldn't get over how silly the dinosaurs looked dragging their tails behind them. For those of you who grew up post Jurassic Park, we now know that dinosaurs held their tails straight out, to help them balance. They used to think that dinosaurs drug their tails behind them, like rats. This movie, having been made in 1940, was made before they figured out they didn't.
In the future, what do you think they'll look back on what we think now, and be baffled at how backward we had it?
"Look at this old movie, Bob. Back in the 2000s, they used to think that the prostate was useless! They hadn't even figured out how to produce fine gourmet cheese from it! [reaches into pants] Ah, look! Chimay Vieux! Want a bite?"
"Thanks Jim. God, that's delicious! And it'll go great with that Savignon Blanc wine I've been fermenting in my appendix for the past eight months, when that's done. Think you can save some for then?"
yesterday last year THE WARRIORS! THE GRINDHOUSE COMPETITION! ULTRAVIOLET! EVAN ALMIGHTY! on last year's POLARITY!
on this day last year this made me chuckle. someone posted a survey and called it the "uncomfortable survey", except the problem was that the questions were written to make a 12 year old uncomfortable. i added some questions that were actually uncomfortable.
