    I keep trying to make a correction on my city's Wikipedia page, but they always keep reverting it back . . . I guess because I don't any actual sources to cite other than my own personal notes, but the Wikipedia page says that the highest temperature recorded in my city was 105 in 2012, which isn't true: the summers of 2010 and 2011 not only saw our temps routine jump up to 105, but 2011 we jumped up to 110 one day.

    More often than not in fiction, it seems like dog owners almost always resemble their dogs, depending on what kind of breed they are . . . like if the dog is an English Bulldog, their owner is usually short, fat, and has a really smooshed-looking face. If the dog is an Afghan Hound, the owner is usually thin and lanky with really crazy, shaggy hair. If the dog is a poodle, the owner is usually has their hair done in some kind of pom-poms. If the dog is a pug, the owner is usually a little bug-eyed creep.

    Ever notice how in adult animes that go beyond the TV-MA rating, women's breasts are never censored but the male character's penises are?

    Not that it bothers me - just something I noticed.

    Hentai??? Excuse me, good sir. This is traditional anime adapted from manga. Not those crappy perverted drawings you find on newgrounds or Deviantart. :p

    For reference:

    Here's one anime I can mention that has uncensored breasts and isn't straight up porn. There's others I know I've seen but can't name them on the top of my head.

    Has anyone ever noticed how dogs have their own unique breeds, whereas cats, while they have different breeds.... All look the same in shape?

    Ever notice that so many movies from the 70s have terrible, terrible sound quality? TMM is no exception to that, but really, a lot of 70s movies have sound that sounds as though you're listening to the entire movie through a phone that's being held up to a speaker.

    Well, film quality was still developing at the time.

    Well, audio at least; the advent of stereo was around this time, so that probably has something to do with it.

    It's funny how records from the 70's were getting better all the time.
    Movies took a little longer to catch on.
    Earthquake (1974) was one of the first released with Sensurround. Some theaters even were equipped for a quadrophonic mix, with an extra woofer placed on the floor behind the screen, so the theater would vibrate during the earthquake scenes.
    Unfortunately in many theaters this caused plaster to fall from the ceiling.
    But none of this mattered when the movie was shown on TV, since most TV sets at the time had tinny little 3-inch speakers.

    Star Wars, I believe was the first presented in Dolby. Great leap forward, but again, the progress wasn't as noticeable watching it on TV.

    So why is it when it's been cloudy and/or rainy for just a couple of days and the sun comes out, everybody acts like they haven't seen the sun in months? "Finally! The sun is out again! I thought this would never happen again!!!" After just two days of clouds.
