Bartleby - Herman Melville
04/18/15, 03:15

They take a Melville story that raises interesting questions about one's responsibilities to one's fellow man, pay actors and production teams to film the thing so you don't have to go to the trouble of reading the story, and then they made you WATCH it! Oh how you suffer.

She was on "QI" a few months back; kind of reminds me of Betty White thirty years ago, a sweet jovial granny type who isn't easily offended. I would give her a piggyback ride if she wanted one.

OW - good points about how Princess Leia broke from the traditional "damsel" mold. In 1977, that was a leap forward, like having Uhura on the bridge of the Enterprise, or Kinchloe in the Stalag 13 tunnels doing the technical work.

I don't mind the concept of Princess Leia using a light saber in and of itself, though it seems like the dullest possible way to show that she's as useful as any of the guys. Plus, the proliferation of light sabers is a problem as Plinkett pointed out, because when everyone's using light sabers all the time, they're no longer special.

Here is "Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro":

I bring it up because it reminds me of this debate. On the one hand, there is a princess to rescue, and like Leia she is brave and resourceful when circumstances allow her any agency. On the other hand, she's still seriously in need of rescuing, and if you want to look for the strong female lead in this, that's probably Fujiko.

I can't help but imagine Adam Sandler's "Bartleby". I have this image of Adam Sandler in a law office, reclining in a big chair, giggling and prattling as he eats a bowl of cereal. Lots of wacky hijinks and physical humor as they try to get rid of him.

"The problem with the prequels"

Mildly amused that you phrase it in terms of a single problem -- so in theory, if we corrected just this one thing, the prequels would be fine. I don't think you meant it exactly that way, but that's the way it sounded.

There's nothing wrong with an origin story, though, or even a story where you know in broad strokes what has to happen by the end. Nobody was surprised that the ship sank in "Titanic", after all. And if you ever watch the three-episode pilot for "Superman: The Animated Series", they spend fully one episode on Krypton, and it works, by making you feel something for a doomed people.

If I had to come up with the lowest effort fix to the prequels, I would fix Anakin's motives in the third one: he does not cotton to the Jedi's use of clones as slaves, and has decided they need to be brought down. That also seriously tarnishes the Jedi in the process (not that they didn't do it to themselves), so probably a broader fix would be best: first movie is experienced Obi-Wan plus new recruit Anakin slowly bonding, second movie is Anakin put through hell and still coming out the very model of everything good, third movie is some small flaw exploited and Anakin's downfall. (Which I suppose the third one actually was, but it was done so stupidly that you're forced to believe Anakin was just itching to turn to the Dark Side all along.)
The Worst Programming Language Ever

I think you're right, gravelstudio. PHP was apparently built by people who said to themselves, "wouldn't it be great to have a language that made Internet tasks easy". And so that's what they built. And I'll give PHP this much, it does what it was intended to, I think.

I have my frustrations with PHP, but overall I can't complain; it does work when all is said and done. PHP programmers are another matter altogether; they have a reputation for being the worst of the worst, and the reputation is somewhat deserved. PHP is the first language to (inadvertently) push the notion that you, yes you, can program and it won't require an expensive compiler or time-consuming computer science classes. If you can download software from php.net you're good to go! As a result there are an inordinate number of people claiming to be PHP programmers who can, at best, install existing PHP programs or make configuration changes or slap code snippets together and build a Frankenstein monstrosity. Plenty more who don't understand structured code and their attempts at code really show it. I can't blame that on PHP itself so much as its easy accessibility, which you would think would be a blessing.

"There is no way to do an actual lexicographical comparison between them."

Turns out there is, the "strcmp" function. That said, having to use a function because the straighforward comparison is unreliable, is hardly something for PHP to brag about. Again, worst features of C++ and Perl, and in this case, Javascript got its DNA in there too. Would not want to watch the movie they undoubtedly made of PHP's conception.

I'm a strong-typing kind of guy at heart, so I am not fond of PHP being "helpful" with strings either. In the Bortocentric model of the universe, people would program in Pascal or one of its descendants.

I'm going to rush to PHP's defense just a little bit. Yes, it is more or less the retarded love child of C++ and Perl, preserving all their worst features. And PHP is genuinely inspired in introducing bad features, like a boolean type (which is actually a good thing) that in most circumstances can be mixed and matched with integers (ill-advised) and then you have functions that might return either "0" or "false" depending (WHAT IN THE HELL).

But here is the good of PHP: it was built around completing tasks that are not natively simple in other languages. Like suppose your program needs to take a Web page and copy its contents into a variable ... PHP has got a function for that. Really it's madness from the standpoint of traditional language development, and yet PHP's madness comes in handy. It's like a socket wrench kit devised by Dr. Seuss, which you wear on your head and you have to spin around to find the right-sized wrench / socket combo ... but god damn if he didn't also include both imperial and metric bamzooflers that are designed to change the tire on a car just by tapping the yukuffle assemblitoid three times.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indent_style

Personally I go for Allman Style too. What it costs in vertical space, it makes up for by making it easy to match braces.

Of course, when you've got the braces and you need to add another level of nesting, you don't technically have to adjust the indenting since it makes no compilation difference. Though perhaps your text editor will fix the indents for you, it loves doing that sort of crap ... but without the braces to use as a guide, it can't.

The white space thing is a deal breaker for me. All it takes is a single time where you have an existing block of code that needs to get wrapped in another layer of nesting -- say, because there's a new "if" condition -- and you quickly find yourself wondering what the hell the Python people were thinking.

Leading white space in other languages is irrelevant; there are words or characters to denote the beginnings / ends of blocks. You don't have to manage the white space to maintain program structure, though you may well choose to for clarity to human eyes. And smarter code editors will indent for you based on the beginnings / ends, so the white space not only beautifies but helps you verify your code structure. But you won't run into a case where one or more lines execute unintentionally because you forgot to change an indent.

Glad you linked Python. What in the fuck were you thinking, Guido van Rossum, using white space to indicate nesting? That's like building a car without doors, because a sufficiently careful driver doesn't need them.

First he goes on about how the right to health care is slavery, which he then goes on to counter by referencing "our founding documents". Hey asshole, "our founding documents" made slavery entirely legal.

Ben Affleck "Daredevil" could have been a good movie, and I don't blame Affleck, just the script. The big problem is that the movie never really gave us a reason to get on Affleck's side, they just assumed that you can put a hero on the screen and the audience will sympathize. Contrast with Tobey Maguire in "Spider-Man", where they took pains to show us his frustrated ambitions and that he's the sort of person we want to succeed.
Parks and Rec: Very Good Building commercial
04/14/15, 06:14

I really can't begrudge Leslie and Ben falling in love; these things happen to people, and they are a good fit. But they aren't one of those TV couples who produce drama and conflict so as to perpetuate the species (i.e. the show); the few disagreements they have are resolved more or less like adults.

The one misstep in their relationship was the whole Trial of Leslie Knope business, where I don't think the show ever made a plausible case for why the Ben / Leslie romance was out of bounds. I think it was said that it's not actually illegal for employees to date their supervisors and it was just Chris's rule, but how does he have the authority to enforce a rule like that?

Personally I would have gone straight to Ben being caught between love and doing his job well (which, seeing as he is in town precisely to be as impartial as possible, would not allow him romance with any department). Skip the sneaking around, skip the explosion, go straight to Ben feeling he has to quit his job. That would give him more time for episodes about claymation and calzones.
