Day 24. 109 pages, 48,704 words.
Clearing out my virtual desk today, putting all the files onto the server (hopefully I still have network access) and finishing up.
Then tomorrow I will go to see Captain America: Civil War, so I will finally be able to write a little review of it. It’s old news by now, of course, but I guess I should bandwagon.
Speaking of old news, as mentioned yesterday I also watched Ant-Man for the first time, and I thought it was fun. I mean, I didn’t have time to get into how utterly and permanently that technology changes everything in the Marvel universe, and they use it to put lasers on the backs of ants and do amusingly convoluted robberies … just those smallening and biggening ninja-stars, what the Hell were they? Anyway, no time. Just … that was crazy, alright? The technology to change the size of things like that, just no. If nothing else, you’re still only changing the distance between the atoms so making that giant Thomas the Tank Engine would have made it … fuzzy or cloud-like in some way, right? And oh yeah, it certainly wouldn’t have turned its horn into a full-blast steam engine whistle. Also, Pym’s key chain. It still would have weighed as much as a tank, wouldn’t it? Okay, I’m assuming there was an accompanying loss of weight even though they made it really clear that Ant-Man still had the mass of a full-grown human which was why his punches were so deadly. He still had way more atoms than an ant, so … I’m no scientist but I don’t see how he was riding on Ant-ony all that time.
Oh Ant-ony… *sniffle*
And oh yeah, when he went sub-atomic, what were his even-closer-together-than-usual atoms actually made out of then? Because if they were just atoms with the space removed, they weren’t just atoms with the space removed because he was way tinier than the atoms.
Anyway, there was a funny closing scene featuring Stan Lee and some random characters, and one of them was an amusing YouTube cameo. Sort of like Felicia Day in Supernatural.
Actually, this one isn’t particularly funny, most of her older stuff was wackier. This is more of a responsible public service announcement sort of thing. What happened to you, man? You’ve changed.
That’s it for now.
