It's a good Calvin & Hobbes fan strip. It's real good! : TwilightZone

In case you didn't know, this is a take-off on...


It is a 1961 Twilight Zone episode about a small child with god-like powers who terrorizes a small town.

I read the original science fiction short story before I saw the Twilight Zone episode that was adapted from it.  When they remade the TV Twilight Zone Series in the early 2000s, they did a sequel to the original episode 40 years later.  Bill Mummy reprised his role as the "monster" with god-like powers, and Cloris Leachman reprised her role as his mother.  I thought that this was a brilliant idea.


Ironically, another 20 years have passed.  There is yet another new Twilight Zone series on CBS All Access.  It is time for another sequel.  It could set a record for having a 60-year story arc.  Bill Mummy is still alive, although Cloris Leachman died in January from a combination of stroke and COVID.  She played in "The Croods" animated movie that I liked and the very recently released "The Croods 2: A New Age."

"Mommy ha ha ha, you'll never guess where I am.

Son, I can't talk right now, call me later.

I can't, I only have the right to one phone call."

Although I recognize most of the words, I have difficulty with the whole translation.  I have to use an online translator.

Douglas Adams: Parrots the Universe and Everything

The extraordinary thing about this terribly funny speech is that it was given at the University of California in May 2001, and Douglas Adams died May 11th, 2001 of a heart attack.

This is well played.  In terms of presentation, maybe something other than looking at the back of your head.

Sonic the Hedgehog (film) - Wikipedia

In a promotional interview for the film, Carrey said he could imagine developing Robotnik for a sequel: "I wouldn't mind going to do another one because it was so much fun, first of all, and a real challenge to try to convince people that I have a triple-digit IQ... "

LOL.

Mythbusters Demo GPU versus CPU

I don't know that this has much to do with CPU's or GPU's, but it is typical of Mythbusters taking things to the extreme.
