    My biggest fear on the internet already happened.

    I bought a textbook, and afterwards my credit card apparently travelled without me to among other places Dubai and made purchases.

    The best part is when the term "obviously" is used in textbooks to do something like gloss over a page of math. No, Quantum Chemistry textbook, that was not actually obvious.

    The term I'd use is "lie", although I'd settle for "textbook illustration of the Dunning-Kruger effect".

    Yeah, people learning rocket science. How did you not know the Tsiolkovsky rocket equation before you took the class? A kindergartner knows what that is.

    I am extremely self-conscious about my taste in music, because it's rubbish.
    When I say it's rubbish, though, what I mean is that I don't have any. It seems to be a case of "does it have a tune or melody I can follow? If so, I like it." And I know many "crap" bands that I enjoy listening to.

    Which has made me think most of the songs I enjoy listening to are generally disliked, which in turn gets me very confused whenever someone references the song because I can't tell if they're being sarcastic or if it's genuinely a popular song.
    That's all I can think of, at any rate.

    "Good" and "Bad" music are all matters of opinion. If you want to listen to some auto tuned canned music, go ahead. It's a trivial subject matter.

    The vast majority of music going back as far as the 50's is auto-tuned. You don't understand what that term means.

    I never claimed to be a musical genius. I was just saying that you can listen to whatever you want to. Also, I was using the term "auto tune" how it is commonly used today. Yes, auto tune existed in the 50s, but no one then used T-Pain level modifications on their music. I have nothing against you if you like that kind of music, it's just a fact.

    LOL,

    I must confess, I just rolled up the best set of Ability Scores ever (and I been doing this since '75). Granted we use 10+1d8 but ...

    (the order I rolled them) = 15, 14, 15, 18, 18, 18 ... WOW!!!

    When I come to my senses again I'll figure out what I want to do with it ;)

    How about the Evil Dead trilogy? I would argue that Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness were both far better than the first film.

    Someone else already mentioned Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, which I loved as a child, but definitely seems weakest of the first three to my adult self.

    Not everyone will agree, but even though Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome really didn't live up to The Road Warrior, I thought it was still better than the original Mad Max.

    Oh yeah it doesn't hold up with albums at all. In fact I think artists successful enough to put out multiple albums often improve across their first three, if anything.

    I don't mean that type of change. I mean change to move one place to another.
