Finding an unbiased video on what Genetically Modified food products are is really freaking hard.
According to the DVD commentary, Kevin Smith and company were trying to get the use of the Mayor McCheese design cleared and it was going okay, but McDonalds wouldn’t go for it until they changed the line “Nothing can kill the Grimace.”
They finally managed to persuade the company that the line was actually a compliment towards the Grimace, making him seem powerful and invulnerable, rather than monstrous.
This was a serious conversation about the use of intellectual property that adults had.
my birthday present sums me up pretty well
It’s not really your normal type of submission, but I just felt like this replay I got while playing ctf the other day belongs here. Somehow, an AFK player managed to get the intel. This is what resulted.
HAHA oh man what a gem
A new report shows the real cost of Walmart’s low wages: a single 300-employee Walmart Supercenter in Wisconsin may cost taxpayers anywhere from $904,542 to nearly $1.75 million per year, or about $5,815 per employee. While taxpayers foot the bill for subsidized housing assistance, the food-stamp program, child-care subsidies, energy assistance, and reduced school meals for Walmart’s low-paid workers, Walmart profits.

And it’s not like everyone can just boycott Walmart, either.
I mean, obviously, some people can and do, but let’s face it…there a lot of people who, for whatever reason, can’t boycott Walmart. Really low prices are part of it, but what if you live in an area where Walmart is really the only true food source you have access to? Some people have no option other than Walmart, so they wind up subsidizing everything listed above without any true say in the matter.
I guarantee you the head honchos at Walmart know that, too.
The famous arrow scene near the end was in fact done with real arrows. That is, the arrows hitting the wooden planks were not done with special effects, but rather choreographed with archers. Mifune waves his arms to brush away the arrows sticking from the planks, indicating to them that he wanted to go in that particular direction. The real arrows were included to get Mifune’s facial expressions of real-life fear, which is exceptionally hard to imitate. Of course, the arrows that hit the Mifune character were bamboo fakes.
