    Default The Utterly Random Thought Thread.

    You'll get the idea.

    I was watching Stargirl and - (be honest) as many of us do - fiddling about on the internet. Suddenly, the actors start speaking Spanish, which snatched my attention back to the TV to catch the subtitles, as my command of the language is... suboptimal.

    Random Thought: Does Media do that deliberately, to ensure we're looking at the screen when the ads hit?

    I play games on a website that shows a lot of video ads for those who don't want to pay to become a member. I've noticed that, if I switch tabs to look at something else while the ad is running, when I come back I find that the ad had stopped while I was gone and started up again as soon as I came back to the game site.

    How can men be accused of not listening to women when they are able to pull off multiple "That's what she said" jokes?

    The only Arcade Game that my husband and I ever played together straight through to the end and won, was based on Michael Jackson's Thriller, or was it Moonwalker?

    Unfettered capitalism spurs innovation to a certain degree but also stifles it by encouraging greed. An idea may be innovative, but if the potential for profit isn’t immediately apparent it will likely be abandoned.

    I wish I were less crazy in my way of thinking...I obsess too much on so many things.

    Was that a podcast or something? If so, provide a link please. I love a good discussion on the pros and cons of capitalism.
