Matthew Michael McLuhan's Comments

The sad thing is despite all of these "time saving measures", I imagine their bosses were hassling them for taking too much time. Time is money!

The only one that made me actually laugh was the first one with the oven plastered to the front of the truck. That was legit funny to me. The rest just seemed... incredulous. I stand by my earlier statement though. Even doing all that horrible stuff, they were probably still hounded for being late.

those are pretty funny.. the funniest one I saw was in the Thai release of Ong-Bak. which was entirely in thai, and a few times when extras were talking in the background, the closed caption just said "[Speaking in Thai]"

Thanks closed caption! I'd never have known that.

This sort of seems like Lemarcksism. The idea that stretching to reach leaves caused giraffes to evolve their necks. It's got evolution on its head and the wrong way around. If this were true, it would mean that sometime early in homonid evolution, several skull shapes were tried, and the survivor, the design that stuck was the one that didn't get punched to death.

you'd need to see evidence of those stupid punchy designs that failed. You can't look at a finished evolutionary design and guess wildly at what led to it. It's much more likely that the shape of our face is caused by the same thing that crafts it today - a mixture of hormones during growth that happens to work well enough to survive and procreate.

regards to lightning strikes, it is a strange thing that being struck by lightning actually does predispose you to future lightning strikes, ie people who've been struck by lightning are statistically more likely to get struck by lightning again then someone who has never been struck.

it's probably just that some people are more likely to get struck in general and we see this as an increase in strikerate, but it's a little strange, some people are struck many times over the course of their life... and also interesting is that most lightning strikes against people are not fatal.. Many don't leave any real injuries at all.

It's funny, because when I was in high school, this is exactly the question I asked in a Law class, and everyone just sort of laughed and considered me a crazy person. I think the actual question I asked was "Is it morally ok to tattoo flames on a small hairless dog?"

My argument was that indeed, that it does cause some suffering to the dog, but after it healed, that would absolutely be the coolest dog anyone had ever seen, so it would probably get a huge amount of attention, and considering attention is like crack to a dog, it would be a net positive in its life. Not to say ALL dogs should be tattooed but I digress.

Mostly it's just hilarious to see that I'm not the only person who asked the question, and others didn't laugh at them and call them insane.

It's interesting to see an instance of this where bad-blood wasn't involved. I honestly hadn't really thought about it, but always had assumed Dick York had had a falling out with producers. I imagine most people at the time thought that as well. If they had gotten the full story, they might have been a bit more forgiving of the swap. Kept in the dark though, they could only use their gut to determine if they could follow the show with such a drastic change of casting.

Clearly they did not care for it.
