I hate all big budget movies nowadays. Always the same shit story in different clothes, dumbed down for a global market. The last big budget movie master piece was probably Starship Troopers, and that was only possible because it was such a nasty hidden troll in a sci-fi flick.

I like Budweiser. In general I like plain beers over specialty beers. Beer is a very simple product with just a few ingredients. Specialty beers just fuck around ratios so you get a weird, excuse me, "special" taste. I'm amused by the "piss" snobbery. Don't even get me going about alcoholic grape ju...

Yeah so I asked my wife why do you buy such expensive shoes when these flip-flops have been excellent for me and I don't see any objective reasons to buy decent shoes instead of the cheapest crap. I am a biped so my opinion is not trival or irrelevant. :ugeek:

I'd keep the left one. The right one has all kind of nonsense like QWERTY printed on the keycaps for which I have no use.
