  1. I think that's the deodorant/antiperspirant, though, not the sweat. My husband's undershirts get washed after each wearing and they're like that in the pits.
  2. I think they could be targeting people who don't want b.o. after working out, but also people who consider themselves profuse sweaters. They might think their boardroom sweat is equal to someone else's gym sweat. So if the deodorant can control gym sweat, then certainly it can control their sweat. I buy it. My dad has a bum knee and I've told him millions of times to take it easy. This lady probably tells her dad to tell her when the gutters need cleaning and she'll come and do it, and then she finds out later he went and did it on his own. But the thing is, the whole reason they're going to see the gutter spiel is that they don't want to clean their gutters anymore. If they didn't, they wouldn't be there.
  3. Yeah. Since the original Wonder Years centered around a guy in his early 30s reflecting on his life 20 years ago, shouldn't the reboot also take place 20 years ago?
  4. Who got cancelled for having a wedding at a plantation? (Nothing comes up when I google it.)
  5. I'm not 100% sure about this, because I only ever have it on as background noise when nothing else is one and so I can periodically look at the food, but I'm pretty sure that on Guy's Grocery Games, former contestants judge, and I think there was one episode where they said the judges were going to compete in the next episode or something. I think the backstories are a waste of time. I'm sympathetic to people's plights, but I'm watching because I want to watch people do the thing, not because I want to hear about people's lives.
  6. I would tend to agree with this. It doesn't seem to me that actors should have firsthand experience with what they're portraying. It reminds me of that Laurence Olivier quote when Dustin Hoffman was being too Method: "Why don't you just try acting?" I'd say an actor's job is to draw on whatever they need to to portray what they are required to portray, and that the writer's and/or director's job is to ensure that what the actors are portraying is accurate/appropriate. (That's not to say I don't think that actors should have any input -- I just don't think that it's a requirement.)
  7. @Anduin The very first part of the "da da da" part made me think of the Jason Mraz song "Lucky," but the rest of that part doesn't really.
  8. A friend and I both love this song. Once, when she was living with another friend of ours, I was over hanging out with that friend, when the first friend came out of her room to go out somewhere and she was wearing overalls, and we were all commenting on her outfit. It wasn't until after she left that I realized I should have yelled "Tramp." I have regretted it ever since.
  9. In case anyone else watched that Roxette video and couldn't figure out how it was different from the version you know, I looked it up: They just shortened the intro and outro and changed "it's a hard Christmas day" to "it's a hard winter's day." (I was expecting a whole complete verse about Christmas or something.)
  10. The Ramones' "Do You Remember Rock and Roll Radio" names a bunch of people. Rick Nelson's "Garden Party" also references several people and lyrics.
  11. Maybe he's related to Mrs. Carmen, who, for unclear reasons, was going to get me, until I learned the song was called "Instant Karma."
  12. To be honest, I don't think people can tell each other's ethnicities apart as well as we think we can, and/or the differences aren't always as great as we think they are. Sometimes you can easily tell and sometimes you can't, and sometimes when one person can easily tell, another can't. Sometimes you can tell only because you know -- the old "Now that you say that, I can totally see it!" syndrome. Speaking of casting a Filipino as Thai, I'm white and Filipino, and I've had Thai people think I was Thai. (I've also had Hispanic people think I'm Hispanic.) (And I've been mistaken for Native American millions of times, so Lou Diamond Phillips and I should get together to play a Native American family.) I teach international students from all over the world, and they are sometimes surprised to learn classmates are from the same country as them (i.e., the same ethnicity) and they're sometimes surprised to learn classmates are not. I don't want to say that all Asian people are interchangeable, because I don't think that's true. But I also think enough variation exists within groups that like...my problem with Amy Hill playing a Filipino on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is with the fact that there aren't enough Filipino actresses in Hollywood (or that they didn't look hard enough to find one), not that she doesn't conceivably look Filipino.
  13. I don't even think it's something you can successfully boast about. Recently, some of my coworkers noticed that their direct deposit randomly started going through a day early, and no one else cares besides to say "oh huh, mine's not doing that."
  14. Is it possible that it's some thing where if she doesn't sue him about this now, then she risks any future suits getting thrown out because of the precedent? (I know nothing about this.)
