    Too funny:

    I also like Jack Lemmon's. It just says,

    I really, really enjoyed B&tB personally (went with the gf). Now the Lion King on the other hand was incredibly bad. The only things that saved it was Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen, and at times Jon Oliver.

    Same thing happened to I think Sum 41 waaay back in the day, when they were playing next to the stage where Less Thank Jake was going to play at. The crowd starting chanting "Less Than Jake!" and Derrick the lead singer was pretty pissed off about it. And I actually liked/like Sum 41.

    [–] Stan Lee’s daughter: ‘No one could have treated my father worse than Marvel and Disney’s executives’ spartagnann -1 points ago in news

    First, I agree. But, to play devil's advocate: maybe Stan being a "PR man" was exactly what the comic scene needed at exactly the right time. What better way to really get the word out about these incredible characters and stories than a super enthusiastic hype man that could embody nerd culture and really let "nerds" feel like they had a champion for what a huge swathe of people wanted to see and read. Because let's face it, without Stan Lee being Stan Lee (off paper and in the public realm) would we be where we are today in terms of comics being a dominate force in pop culture?

    Not saying that gives him or anyone else the right to be a dick to anyone else, but it is something to think about.

    Would we have what we have now without Stan Lee the PR Hype Man?

    I've read some narratives that Stan kind of ripped Kirby off and didn't treat him too well. That said, I think his daughter has a point.

    Edit: to add I think Stan is/was a great contributor to pop/nerd/comic culture and I in no way want to diminish his accomplishments.

    [–] Whats a punishment as a child, but a reward as an adult? spartagnann 3 points ago in AskReddit

    You're so right. My mom bless her soul used to make us eat asparagus. Now, today I love asparagus - grill that shit with some S&P or just sautee it with EVOO. But back then she used to just toss it in boiling water for what must have been an hour till they were lumpy strings of mush. I literally vomited once after eating them.

    I've tried that before during my lunch break, but I usually end up going back to work more tired than if I never took one at all.

    Still debating pulling the trigger for tickets to see these guys in Chicago in October.... looks like a fun show.

    No, they really aren't. They're people trying to earn a living. Thinking of them as beholden to you just because you're hungry is a pretty awful way to view other human beings.

    A cashier is definitely not doing more than servers. Skilled laborers like electricians and plumbers are a different story, but cashiers? Cmon.

    Some older people are weirdly aggressively hostile when they go out to eat. There's a reason servers hate working Sunday lunch shifts at certain places since the floor will usually be filled with demanding blue hairs complaining about their ice tea and the price of half of a sandwich.

    That won't help anyone, and would only harm normal people trying to earn a living. AND inform everyone you're an asshole. It's not the restaurant owner or manager or server who is making the decision to have their employees subsist on tips, that's just the industry standard. So you're not sending a message to anyone in a position to make changes to that standard, and you're only sticking it to some overworked server just trying to pay rent.

    What you can do is play by the system's rules as they stand (ie tip) since that is how our society operates, and lobby to increase the minimum wage in your area. If you simply "don't tip" you're not helping anyone.

    [–] This is the truth spartagnann 3 points ago in funny

    It makes perfect sense.

    The diner server slinging bacon and eggs or chicken fried steak has a different skill set than a server at a high end steakhouse.

    The server at upscale places are expected to know the menu inside and out, every dishes ingredients from salt to where the beef was sourced, how dishes pair with the wine they serve, the wine list itself, where each wine comes from, the notes of every wine, etc etc.

    A server at a greasy spoon is more expected to be prompt, nice and polite, and quick on their feet since the food served doesn't require as much in-depth knowledge. And when you sit down at a white linen restaurant, you're expecting the server to be an expert in the menu, to help guide you in making choices that fit your palette and your preferences, and to ensure everything goes smoothly, from clearing used utensils to uncorking and pouring wine.

    While neither is inherently better than the other, they just require completely different levels of food service and food and drink knowledge.

    It's exactly the opposite. I knew my earnings depended on me being the best I could be, so I wanted to do the best job I could, so I provided the best service possible at all times.

    If you're a good server or bartender, you're able to roll with any unexpected obstacles because being able to adjust quickly and multi-task is part of the job.

    I have one of my degrees in English/writing and while getting it I finally read East of Eden. I felt like such a dumb, untalented hack after that.
