My mind just got blown.

If you cook it even longer you get your stove privileges taken away.

Man... what the hell? I don’t care for butterscotch but man Toffee is pretty well much amazing.

TIL I love butterscotch onions.

That would definitely explain why breakups felt like death when I was a teenager.

Can I turn it off?

Huh, I didn't get that feature installed apparently.

Strange that you'd posit this as if to be a complete rebuttal rather than at least offering up that both explanations play into it, which clearly they do.

TIL: Video game voice actors aren't always told which game they're working on

TIL: Video game voice actors aren't always told which game they're working on

They aren't always told what game they areworking on or anything about the plot. Sometimes they only know the lines their going to say when they show up to record them. They really could do better performances if they had all the information. Like TV/Movie actors have.

The voice actor for dracula in castlevania symphony of the night had no clue the game was released until 2008, despite it being one of the most iconic performances for fans in the whole industry.

That's not why. The why was that the key voice actors were being undercompensated based on the profits of the game they were working on...If you do hours of voice work for a AAA title, you should be compensated fairly.

Of course, this opens the door for a lot of creatives (writers, animators, etc) being paid on a different scale based on the game, but voice acting is unionized and therefore they have more clout.

They have producers and directors there to give them instructions like that.

"No no, be a bit more evil."

Way to ruin The Land Before Time for me.

Its amazing to think how long dinosaurs existed compared to the paltry amount of time we have existed in comparison.

Our understanding of time and history is so human-centered that this just blows my mind.

Yeah but what do they have to show for it? Bones?

So much winning. We're going to win so much you're going to get tired of winning.

oh, that sounds just like money laundering and bribery to me.

Money laundering? I don't see how that would be the case if the money is coming from a clean source.

But bribery, yeah, or more precisely Influence Peddling. "I bail out your nephew and you help me using your influence".

The property was purchased by Kushner Cos in 2006 for $1.8 billion, which at the time was the highest price paid for a single building in Manhattan.

This reminds me.

The BBC does rehearsals for the Queens death and instead of saying the queen has died they say Mrs. Robinson so that no one takes the clip out of context and uses it to spread fake news of the Queen dying.

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson.

Jesus loves you more than you will know.

"It's the weekend or they're drunk!"

I do kinda miss the Cold War, the propaganda and shit was amazing.

That could be quite awkward for when the queen does die, and someone says Mrs. Robinson by accident.

TIL Robert Johnson, the co-founder of BET and America’s first African-American billionaire, paid out a massive $400 million to his wife Sheila in a 2002 divorce. The massive settlement was decided by Judge William Newman, Jr., who three years later married Johnson's ex-wife

Wow, something had to be going on before this trial between these two.

Shit title. She and her husband co founded BET together. She is actually a good person and is just as responsible for the fortune as her husband.
