I remember it being full of NYC culture and entertainment industry in-jokes that would fly over the heads of its nominal demographic.

That was one of the chief complaints about it, the weird bits of adult animation humor in a kid's movie.

huge respect for that as well. I'm not use to those kind of hours. I get worn out with just 4-6 hours of sleep. Need my 8 hours.

Though to my credit, i barely miss any time at work.

Regularly got by on 5-6 hours of sleep but in the military. But that was when I was young and foolish. Now that I'm old and foolish, slumber is one of my favorite modes of cheap travel... :D

for high school I generally shot for 6.5 hours, with more on the weekends unless I had to get up early for marching band and didn't wanna go to bed early enough. Senior year I ended up sleeping in my first period kinda regularly (my teacher said it was cool as long as I did the class participation after the lecture and did the homework well. which I did, I think that was one of the only AP tests I managed to get a high grade on)

in college I usually went with like 7.5 hours, 6.5 if I had early classes and anywhere from 0 to 4 if I had a big assignment I procrastinated on. but I think I only once did that for more than one night.

now i usually shoot for 8 (again, unless I work early and don't wanna sleep early enough to get that, in which case I go for 6.5)

Does anyone REALLY know why is Discord doing this to myself? I mean, I dropped really hard the post counts on any forums (I could have been to 2000 if it weren't for discord) and I have a lots of Discord servers that I don't have the time to check them. Now, I'm not even that active on Discord than I was on the forums a year ago, I'm just reading messages there and there, and I rarely tell anything new.

I'm really worried. When I was more active on the forums, I was really happy I could self-express me. Now, it's just... like I shyed away a lot.

Forums are a great way to communicate online... I worry that Discord and Telegram and stuff are drawing people away from them, and people aren't having as high-quality discussions.

i doubt it. discord and telegram seem more like an evolution of now-defunct chatrooms, and those coexisted with forums just fine.

I don't really care too much, honestly. I just want everyone on the same platform. What I miss is Skype because it was after AIM/MSN/Yahoo! died but before Telegram and Discord came around to split the market again.

Sure, but Skype slowly deteriorated in quality (at least, in terms of the Android app) and that drove me away to other things. I can't even remember the last time that I intentionally opened Skype...

I'm going to edit so many of my old posts with images because I found a fix to the down postimg images.
Apparently this image hosting site decided to change his domain and did a dodgy job on it so all previous images were down because they were pointing to the incorrect URL. The fix is easy: change "postimg" from the URL to "postimage" and ta daa, it's fixed.

Maybe it was 11.99 and they rounded down after the halfing?

What are you talking about? It makes perfect sense! No standardisation needed!
One Aussie pound equals 240 Aussie pence or twenty Aussie shillings or ten Aussie florins. Perfectly logical, right?

while exponents of 10 are far easier to keep track of, hence why the entire metric system is built on them, as are most variations of the dolar, (things like the major currency unit being exactly 100 of the minor one, or the term 'grand' meaning 1000 of the major unit) that's only half the problem with pounds. the other half is the british and the americans both still using the term as well, and both using it differently than you do. the American version isn't even money.

So its a bad idea to stay too long at a memorial tree park where you decorate a Christmas tree for a deceased loved one because the longer you stay, the more emoitonal you get.

Yeah well it doesn't help that the tree we picked at the park was next to a few that were trees of children that died young. Hard to pull yourself together when you read about a 3-year old who was taken too soon.
