Out of the Blue

Somebody in the forums joked about this yesterday, but it may indeed be true that the secret ingredient in my coffee has been coffee grinder, as when I glued the broken pieces of our broken grinder back together, there was a small portion of plastic missing, and the most logical conclusion is that it was ground up and mixed with the coffee along the way. Here's hoping the filter caught most of it. Undeterred by this revelation, I managed to get the grinder fixed, and it no longer requires something pressing down on it to get it to work, so the break must have been the cause of that. Oddly, the hardest part of the job was cleaning it all up, as the oil in the grounds created a sort of coffee cement in various areas that required an amazing amount of work to clean out.

Make sure to bring a bunch of highly strung scientists along, preferably one who smokes and talks to a voice recorder all the time, as well as a token chick who is in no way, shape or form hot and who will refuse to open the door when said cigarette smoking dude is dying.

Oh, and bring multiple detonators for your nukes. Your mission will be golden.

(Fuck you, guys. The Core was awesome!)

It was the French guy who got trapped and who the "hot chick" refused to open the door and rescue. The smoking dude got pinned under a nuke, and couldn't be freed in time.

And as awesome(ly bad) as the movie was, it's so unbelievably hard to overlook some of the silliness. Like - how were they going to detonate the nukes in the first place? They couldn't detach any of the pods because the release was "outside" the ship. There's no way to eject the nukes. So effectively, the only way to set them off was inside the ship. Brilliant planning!

Still a fun movie to watch, if only to make fun of. I enjoy Hackers for the same reason.
