Interesting that a movie (I'm assuming) could have that much of an impact.

I still can't say ch-ch-ch-ah-ah-ah without my wife smacking me :mishchief:

Had another interesting experience with the MoviePass card today. Bought two tickets at a kiosk, used the card to pay first assuming I could then pay for the second ticket. The kiosk hit the card for the full amount that was loaded ($12.77), which covered part of the second ticket. Got that one for only $3.35 more.

Was watching It's a Wonderful Life for the "God knows how many'th" time, when I noticed....

At the cemetery, Clarence states "Your brother, Harry Bailey, broke through the ice and was drowned at the age of nine", then George brushes away the snow at the bottom of the head stone to show the years 1911 - 1919.

Guessing Clarence was bad at math?

well, he hadn't completed his ninth year, but he was definitely past his eighth. :roll:

Well...that would depend.

As the marker did not provide month or day data (just years) we can assume at the oldest he was just one day short of his ninth birthday (born Jan 1, 1911 - died Dec 31, 1919) which I will concede is "technically" 9 yrs old, but typically I wouldn't "say" someone was 9 unless that birthday had come (1/1/1920). Maybe 8 going on 9 but that's not what Clarence said :tongue:

At the youngest though, he could have still been "7 yrs old" had he died prior to his 8th birthday in the year 1919. Say he was born Dec 1, 1911 and died Jan 1st 1919 (he did break through the ice, so Jan 1 seems plausible) he would have been just over 7 yrs old.

Sorry for nitpicking, but it's who I am (PS: my wife hates it too)

Totally fine!

I suppose I could apologize for playing devil's advocate (or in this case, just being contrary and/or ornery), but I won't :tongue:

It's a great catch, and seems like an obvious mistake.

In the course of raising a young human (who is now 3 somehow), my wife and I have listened to what feels like a million nursery rhymes and other children's songs. The one that I just can't wrap my head around is "Five Little Monkeys". Ok, besides the fact that all it has done is give my son something to sing whilst jumping on his bed, it's the lyrics that truly drive me crazy and not just because it's incredibly repetitive. I mean, just think about it, here this mother is bringing her children into the hospital one by one with the same exact injury. At what point would any rational and compassionate doctor call the Department of Social Services to report this mother for housing her children in a dangerous environment? Probably long before the fifth child is brought in.

All I know is that whenever one partner asks the relatively common question, "What did the doctor say?" The respondent has an easy punchline.

As I have not raised any wee humans, I had to look up this rhyme as I am not familiar with it. Truly hysterical :lol:

Watching an old episode of Monk, when I caught site of a teenage Jennifer Lawrence. According to IMDb, it's her first acting credit.

Interesting that a movie (I'm assuming) could have that much of an impact.

Talking to a coworker named Jason reminded me of this, and I started wondering why the name had taken off so quickly in the early '60s - then I remembered Jason and the Argonauts from 1963. This name might have a movie to thank for both its rise and fall.

Well, Jason Bourne came out last year. Maybe in a few years we can test this theory :D
