Pink used to be a very masculine color. Guys, I'm starting to think all these gender norms might be completely arbitrary.

Will future generations not know what life was like before COVID?

Like how post-Boomer generations have never known what life was like before the polio vaccine?

Went to get my hair cut today and they absolutely botched it. Far shorter than I wanted and it just looks kind of uneven in general. Like a 10 year old boy whose dad shaved his head in the backyard for the summer or something, I hate it. I can only hope it grows back quickly.

Has your computer ever fallen asleep while you were watching a video because you didn't move the mouse periodically?

Do you ever think about how many websites have been lost to time?

Like, even if a site gets put on the Wayback Machine, that's no guarantee that it'll stay there forever.

It's more parts of websites that worry me. I often go looking on the Wayback Machine for old Java applet and Shockwave Player content, but it never works.

It doesn't have everything, but check out https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/downloads/ , it has tons and tons of old web content that doesn't work in modern browsers.

By "it never works", I mean that the files weren't backed up - I have an older version of Firefox installed for a variety of reasons (mainly UI), including retaining Flash and Java compatibility.

That said, Flashpoint does appear to have one of the games I've been looking for; Junkyard Jump from foxkids.com :)

These gun attacks are crazy man. First NY, the. South Carolina and now Toronto.
I just tried googling Toronto news and all it'll show me is damn baseball. One would assume that would not be.. uh.. priority.

Going to Google News, Canada section - top story "two black bears caught wrestling on backyard trampoline", six stories down "five injured in drive-by shooting".

I'm trying to find plates that resemble this but I have no idea where to look or how to look for it.
It's a deep plate with a solid hollow base, but all i can find is a deep plate with floating edges.
Anyone have any directions of what i could search for?

God yeah. Apparently the plates are from a brand called "feelings" that I can't seem to find anywhere.
Holy shit, if you do find a place where you can buy feelings then please let me know. I'd like to preorder copies of Joy and Self Worth.

Started watching The Batman.

A few thoughts without spoilers:

From a technical level, the photography and visual design and staging is excellent.

Within 45 minutes I already laughed out loud. It's kind of silly.

When Nirvana came on I had major eye roll and laughed and told myself "Of course this is in it"

I cannot take this seriously and it's friggin Batman. I love Batman.

The movie suffers from the all too common Superhero bloat. Catwoman should not be in this. Pointless and she added nothing to it. Adds to bloat. You don't need Batman, Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler. Cut Penguin or have a quick cameo to make him central to the follow up. Set up a seed. Other superhero movies have suffered for this.

Even my favorite Batman movie, Returns, got called out on this back in the day. However, that one pulled it off (and just barely) because Tim Burton went super hard on the outsiders/goth freak show aspect above everything else and kept it visually and tonally consistent.

Anyway, the movie is kinda silly.

ugh, had a rather uncomfortable conversation about trans people at work today. My coworkers can be hard to put up with and this doesn’t help.

Watched The Bad Guys tonight and while it's not the ultimate animated masterpiece of the year, it's fun, characters are nice, and the animation is gorgeous. If you're in the mood for a light-hearted heist movie, you should enjoy it quite a bit.

Plus it features this song, which is always a big plus for a movie :

I feel like there's a zillion better ways to waste my time than to ingest wine and listen to Poets of the Fall but let's gooooo.

Hi. Is there a TVs thread here on Fami? I'm trying to find out which current TVs let you run Kodi without too much messing around. I know those that run Android/Google TV can do it. Which others?

Thanks family.

Family issues turned out to be non-issues, thankfully. Hopefully everyone has a great week.

Can you still be infectious if you've had covid, are now testing negative but still showing symptoms?

Someone I'm living with has had it and has been isolating in their room for the past week and a half whilst they've been testing positive. They've got negative two days in a row not but they're still coughing, are they likely to be safe to go back to normal or could their coughing still be infectious?
