adult’s movies: sex, explosions, yelling, cheap love story
kid’s movies: deep heart-wrenching death, moments where you question your own values, humor, adult jokes splashed in, the secret to the entire universe, sometimes explosions too
"I dunno man, kid’s movies are just kinda dumb"
have u ever watched a good adult movie or did u just watch transformers and think, ‘yep this is as good as it’s gonna get’

Damn, maybe not.
If this is political theater, Fringe is probably doing a better job on props

The core of market research is listening to people and then giving them exactly what they want. What a terrible idea! Have you ever met a person? Most market research looks like, “Yes, I suppose if this existed, it would give me fleeting happiness until I accepted it as the new standard and started thinking about death again.”
That’s why instead of market research companies collect loads of data of what people DO. This explains why people don’t expect to read instruction manuals anymore, and why the most popular operating systems are the ones that are nearly impossible to break. Every time you somehow manage to screw up your phone that has ONE BUTTON it sends that data to some giant server that stores the aggregated mistakes of humanity, which then tells the developers that some special someone out there managed to do the impossible and break everything.
It’s true, every click that you’ve ever made on a popular website is recorded, analyzed, and used to influence design decisions. Every single one! The same is true for dating sites, which means that lurking in their servers is all the data needed to quantify and calculate HUMAN SEXUALITY. This obviously raises some serious concerns, the biggest of which is why aren’t they using that data to make the sexiest robot ever??
Our development team was working on a content management system for a corporate client. It was a big system that administered units produced in a variety of languages and applications and, as a result, required careful user interface design and a lot of backend code.
We were doing a show and tell with our partially working system for a couple of corporate VPs to get their feedback on the design. We took a lunch break, and when we got back, the two VPs said they had something they wanted to show us.
They proudly presented a series of PowerPoint slides that showed where they wanted the buttons and pick lists placed.
Client: There, see? This is the arrangement that makes the most sense to us. Can you do this?
Client: You know, I really don’t understand why it takes your team so long to design these interfaces. We knocked this out in about an hour.
The entire team sat stunned until the senior programmer—a man of very few words—pointed to a button on the PowerPoint screen.
PROGRAMMER: What does this button do?
Client: Well, clearly it administers the training and testing selected by the user.
PROGRAMMER: If I click it right now, it will do that?
Client: Well … no. Actually, it doesn’t do anything yet.
PROGRAMMER: That’s why it only took you an hour.
If you’re mad about it enough to complain in 2014, yeah, probably.
