John Farrier's Comments

There are two games of my youth that I would love to play: The Ancient Art of War and Enchanted Scepters. Sadly, they're not available anymore in any format that I can access.

I recommend reading the original book. It's excellent. The first movie ends about halfway through the book, before it gets really interesting. The second movie (starring the late Jonathan Brandis) doesn't really do the second half of the book justice.

The metric system? Too weird. Look, this creature can grow up to 0.00149129086 furlongs across and live at depths between 0.064622604 and 0.338025929 furlongs.

That's a lot easier to visualize.

Yes, their teeth didn't line up perfectly, so they developed tooth burrs, which could then create mouth sores, which could then get infected. So it was necessary to stay on top of their dental needs.

One of our vets explained another complication. He said that rabbits are very sensitive to anesthesia. The difference between a rabbit being knocked out and being dead was very small, so rendering them unconscious required great care. Tooth trimmings were completed under sedation.

Wait, now I realize that you mean the veterinary bills. They did sometimes. Hyzenthlay had cancer and the amputation of her cancerous foot was pricey. We had a couple injuries that required x-rays and occasional respiratory infections. They both needed periodic tooth trimmings (rabbit teeth grow continuously).

It was fun and I loved them. But the older I get, the more I see pets as an extra expense and source of stress that I could live without.

Now that I've just discovered the DC animated shorts at that YouTube channel, I'll be entertained for at least a day.

DC live action movies are often terrible, but the animated work is consistently excellent.
