    I am still traumatized by the sexification of the female Chipmunks in The Squeakquel - we won’t discuss why I paid full price and made the BF go with me to this - but a full Beyonce wardrobe was given to those little feather shaking tartlets. I really don’t want to see ducks in bikinis or thigh high boots. Fifty Shades of Quack. Wrap em in a full gas station jumpsuit if you ask me. Monkey covering eye emoji here. I can’t handle any more cartoon PTSD. (Also I tweeted your article. Cause, why not.)

    In all these calculations there are several factors left out of consideration, that would shorten his time severely. First of all, it is possible, even likely, that he is sarcastic because humans seem very dumb to him….ie he’s a savant or at the very least exceedingly bright. Secondly, he doesn’t have to become truly proficient in some things, just learn the specific act he needs, like the music pieces or the diagnosis. And finally, once you are proficient in a couple of languages the rest come easier. It fits his personality that everything comes easy and he is proficient in making things LOOK easy before this starts. And of course, knowing what is going to happen makes many feats a piece of cake….

    Slightly off-subject, but for a long time I was trying to figure out where Doc got the train that he had the hover conversion done on? Because a train would probably be too expensive for him to buy on a blacksmith’s pay; I wonder if maybe he asked to retrieve the broken train from the bottom of Shonash/Eastwood Ravine. They might let him have it for free if he could find a way to move the parts, then he could rebuild it with all the time circuits again (not sure how he would manage that in 1885) - then he would have to travel to 2015 again for the hover conversion, and once he did that, he would never need access to a railroad again.
    That train time machine always looked like a cross between a train and Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang.
    I was also wondering where Doc got the gun that he used on the train engineers? Marty already gave his gun to Seamus, and i don’t believe Doc ever had one.

    Your definition for irony is incomplete. I find this ironic, because the rest of your article uses the more complete definition. I expect you did this to help the “hipster” crowd since the actual definition is a bit complicated and the point is that they are WAY off.

    The Alanis Morissette song is actually not that far off, it just requires knowledge that the average teen (and now 20 something) does not have. The clearest is the line “It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid.” You have already paid, and are probably already on the train, and you win a free ride. this meets the definition “a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result” from https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=irony
    You already paid, how can the ride be free?
    Rain on your wedding day has two common contexts. 1) if you are having an outside wedding, you book the venue 6-18 months in advance and pick the day least likely to rain. If it then rains on that day, it is deliberately contrary, and there for ironic. 2) In the moves, it always rains when it is sad, so it is sad on your happy day, so also ironic.
    The black fly in your Chardonnay probably also has a context, but I do not drink and I do not know anyone old enough and classy enough to know the context.

    Admittedly, all of these are week examples of irony, but it is a song (so not a lot of space for explanation or setup), and the examples are relatable to the majority of the perspective audience. I also like the fact that the song has something for everyone, even the people like me who are looking for something intelligent (or witty) in the lyrics. Of course, if there was a movie where all of this happened to a person, then the irony would be better setup and more obvious, preventing this whole problem.

    Of course this whole post fall under the “Oh noos, someone is wrong on the interweb” category, but at least I can sleep at night knowing that there is a small chance that I will someday meet someone who actually understands irony.

    Last note, you know what is ironic to me? They are called hipsters, from the word hip, yet they try to do things which are not hip, but because there are so many of them doing the same thing, it is now hip. So their name is ironic to me. Also, they are an oxymoron (doing something makes it so they cannot do it). :)

    Easiest explanation for the San Dimas time thing is that we only have Rufus’ word for it, and, let’s face it, if you let those two slackers know that they could spend 6 months goofing off and then still make their history report, they’d spend the next twenty or so subjective years goofing off and never actually get around to that report after all…

    In other words, San Dimas Time was a clever lie by Rufus to get Bill and Ted to actually do something…

    Interesting. This is a great way of illustrating the usefulness of the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum mechanics for resolving time-travel paradoxes. Each time a decision is made, a set of new worlds is crated. Time travel then involves not only going back in time, but shuttling between the different universes. - See more at: http://www.wolfgnards.com/index.php/2013/05/12/back-to-back-to-the-future-a-tale-of-two-martys#sthash.Mv0K8xTT.dpuf

    Re: the Crane Kick

    Different sites on the web say yes and no, and some attribute invention of the move to different people who worked on The Karate Kid. But…

    Look at movie “Shaolin Martial Arts” from 1974, now available on Netflix. Just past the 1:21 mark, you will see the old master practicing, and in the middle of his set, he does the Crane Kick, arms extended and all. The only difference is that he doesn’t land on the same foot he jumps from, which is practically impossible. But as soon as I saw it, I recognized it. So it was not invented for The Karate Kid, it was done long before. Whether it’s a real move or not is a different issue.

    I agree Joey is the father of the 5 kids and no one can convince me otherwise! I see his facial features in DJ the most and Stephanie and Michelle a little bit. Nicky and Alex look like him too and in one episode one of the twins said, “I ate dirt!". Joey admitted to having pica that made him eat dirt once. The twin must have inherited this pica from Joey his bio dad. As for DJ, the letters DJ stand for Donna Jo and she is named after her bio dad Joey a little bit!

    I used to extensively read about computer viruses. I even took apart a few. Here’s what makes it laughable on so many fronts:

    #1 You need a software development tool that can specifically target the platform you desire. Where do you buy/download such software that supports alien spacecraft? All computer viruses are programs made by programmers.

    #2 Documentation on their hardware, software and operating systems. You need to research networking, file systems, OS internals and how to become resident.

    #3 Perfect bug free virus development in 1hr. Yeah right, especially for unfamiliar hardware/software. No debugging needed at all. Remember again, a virus is just another program.
