Character says catchphrase often?

Excellent.

Interesting, and extraordinarily difficult. Bravo! But, no more daring than many things one can do with both feet on the ground, or when taking radical social action, or just overcoming stage fright when giving a speech. Slacklining (and many other "one mistake and you die" activities) are extraordinarily dangerous; I've never understood why some honor acts like this as somehow more worthy of note than everyday acts of quiet courage, carried out over a lifetime. Why for instance, we don't think the three jobs that a single father (or mother) of four holds to keep his kids in school. Of course, I'm not saying he shouldn't do slacklining, but rather saying that activities like this are overrated, as a general rule. Good luck, man, and long life!

At first, I read this as a nugget of brilliantly obtuse sarcasm. And then I looked at the next post on down, and realized that it was merely 5:45 AM.

Captivating, charming, attractive, enthralling, mesmerizing, interesting, absorbing, intriguing, beguiling, appealing, alluring, enticing, spellbinding, enchanting, and riveting.

Okay. This thing where someone compiles a SLYT of a character saying the same thing from different points in their movies/careers. Would someone please explain it to me? Also, why and how it could be considered by any reasonable person to be in the same universe as the concept "Best of the web"?

Oh, don't mind me. I haven't had any coffee for three days and it's starting to show.

Waxy's big list of supercuts is still going strong. It's actually frightening how many of those I've seen. Long-term effects on the psyche and all that.

Applying logic in this thread, ironically, is highly illogical. I would advise against it.

Star Trek has some voices in it. I could listen to Nimoy saying 'fascinating' all day.

One of my three genie-granted wishes would be for Nichelle Nichols to provide voice-over to my daily life. I would also accept George Takei. I would keep Patrick Stewart around for variety and reserve Kate Mulgrew for special occasions when I need to get something done and am in no mood for your bullshit.

Fanboy Supercuts, Obsessive Video Montages

I thought this was going to be a hypercut showing all the supercuts created that highlighted catchphrases from movies.

I guess these were funny in the olden days, but after you've seen a few you pretty much know it's gonna blow before you even click it.

I predict that in the future, science will be able to help these video creators.

Best part of every episode, usually.

That must be some seriously fascinating material on that bar in the window. Is that the episode where they got locked in the basement with a vaporizer and a pound of OG Kush?

Historically, theorists and thinkers have followed a concept vertically up and down a taxonomic tree, back to primary sources, and back even further to etymologies, in search of insights. Recently, we have acquired the ability and inclination to order information in broad horizontal slices, less a tree structure than a cross-section of a mossy loam.

It's new, give it time, baby steps.

I know this is going to be the most pedantic-sounding thing, but wasn't Spock's biggest thing Logic? And didn't he disparage anything superstitious or mystical-like? Why then, would he persistently favor a word derived from the Latin for "bewitching"? How would he even know what it felt like to bewitched? Why does he keep a book of spells in his cabin? Why does he privately wear a pointy hat kept under his bed?

The text of the link suggests that the content of the link will be fascinating. I found this not to be the case.
