    [–] Are FIFA rankings anti-semetic? Let's find out in r/rsoccer! RunDNA 31 points ago in SubredditDrama

    My math teacher said the same thing when I wanted to do a project on fractions.

    [–] Comment voting on r/CatsStandingUp, where all comments are the same. RunDNA 101 points ago in TheoryOfReddit

    That's the joke. That there is no reason for a particular comment to get downvoted is why it is funny in a bizarre way.

    [–] What does it mean when a cop car makes all the extra sounds? Like not just wee woo, but wee woo we-wo-we-wo wooo wuhhh with faster/lower alternating and extended sounds? Bigger trouble? RunDNA 10 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    When I was a child I always assumed that the siren was changing.

    Then I heard about the Doppler effect and assumed that the siren stays the same but sounds different due to the moving car.

    Now, judging by the comments in this post, it's a bit of both.

    [–] [No Spoilers] Trying to Take Me Back Somewhere: The Proto-Lynchian Unease of Carnival of Souls RunDNA 3 points ago in twinpeaks

    Anyone who is a Lynch fan should definitely check out Carnival of Souls. You will love it. It is such a one-of-a-kind and haunting film.

    The film was never copyrighted properly in the U.S. so it's in the public domain and widely available online, such as at these links:

    [–] VIP rooms RunDNA 23 points ago in sydney

    Pubs aren't allowed to advertise that they have Pokie Rooms. So instead they advertise the euphemism "VIP Room", which everyone knows means "Pokie Room".

    [–] Oh Nolan RunDNA 9 points ago in movies

    I disagree. After seeing Dunkirk on the big screen I'll no longer be seeing any Nolan films at the cinema. I'll wait for the DVD so I'll have subtitles and be able to understand what the hell the characters are saying.

    [–] Budget of the United Kingdom [OC] RunDNA 10 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    You're faster than a hummingbird on meth. Thank you.

    [–] Budget of the United Kingdom [OC] RunDNA 3 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    True.

    Out of interest (because I don't really follow UK politics very closely) why are there so many deficits, even under Conservative leadership?

    Here in Australia, while the Labor Party has a habit of building up big deficits in the past few decades, the right-wing Liberal party normally brings it back to surplus when they are in power. Why hasn't that happened in the UK?

    Wouldn't it be more informative if you adjusted the values for inflation?

    For example, according to this random inflation calculator I found on google, that £313.10 billion in revenue in 1998 would be equivalent to £522.88 billion in 2017, which is a big difference.

    [–] [ALL] Now, a couple of months away from Part 18, what's your interpretation of the ending? RunDNA 9 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in twinpeaks

    Even in the modified timeline, he's consumed by the tragedy of Windom Earle's wife. Finding Laura, even if he fails to accomplish his mission, is a way to fix that and to put an end to his sense of guilty.

    They really tied his whole life together in one grand arc with that ending. He ends up as a Scottie Ferguson tragic figure.

    I have to say, that while this tragic ending is very artistically rich, there will always be a part of me disappointed that Cooper ended like this. I've always loved his character and looked up to him since I was a teenager, and it makes me genuinely sad that Cooper ended in this tragic way (though I guess that's the point of tragedy).

    I'd always assumed that Cooper ending in peril at the conclusions of Seasons 1 & 2 was just a cliffhanger way of getting a new season greenlit, but looking back it seems like perhaps they always intended for Cooper to have an unhappy finish.
