So if American movies are anything to go by, Americans don't care that much about closure Wink

A similar point is 'meet me at massive-long-address-full-of-numbers at time'...' okay'. Hang up. If it were me it would be 'hang on while I find a pen and piece of paper... can you repeat that?'... so again, by American movies it seems like all Americans have perfect memories Wink

I had a similar thought as I was watching Finding Dory last night.

Someone gave her directions of, "Two left turns and the go straight," which she thought was too complicated and she'd have trouble remembering.

I watched that scene and thought, "That would be me!"

Ah, so it's not real then? Big Grin As an American (presumably?) you're not trained from birth to be able to instantly remember phone numbers and complicated addresses/directions on one hearing only, without any questions or clarification of any kind? Big Grin

If I ever made it to the stage of a game show, I would not act as retarded as all these contestants do on television.

Are all people who use the name "Scooby" on online forums complete whack jobs?

We had one on the old Star Trek.com forums who was a serious crazy.

Even stalked a few of the American members, including showing up at the workplace of one woman...

It has the word "American" in it.

Obviously it's the work of the Great Satan!

I often wonder how many interpersonal conflicts are born from miscommunication, misunderstanding, and misperception. Are most interpersonal conflicts a product of an objective assessment of the other as they actually are, or are they the product of selective memory/perception and a distortion of the facts? When people are in conflict, how many of them are at least willing to consider how they may be wrong?

Tending to some Wikipedian duties, all the while wondering if doing so is a losing cause because of all the Wikivandalism that occurs. 

This user just likes userboxes.

I think, and I've given this not much thought up until recently, that people judge themselves too much about what they've accomplished in life and base their own worth on stuff they done. I think this can be a trap of thought, because it becomes a competition with yourself to out-do yourself in whatever you do from day to day. You are not what you do, you're merely human, who happens to have done x, y & z.

RE: Random Thoughts
I had an idea today to create a restaurant where the staff were all wheelchair bound and the kitchen was set up especially for them.
There's no waiter. An apprentice wheels out and places the meals on a bench with a heat lamp and dings a bell.
The customers walk down an incline so they're at the same height as the server.
The name of the restaurant is The Wheel and Barrow.
I'm telling my friend about it and she points out that the wheelchair users would need to touch the wheels that had touched the floor and it would be a health and safety issue.
Bitch fucked my dreams.
