    Andy the dog played "Daisy" the dog in JOHN WICK.
    They spread bacon grease on his face so the dog would lick it for the scene (grease on Reeves's face so dig would lick, not the other way around).
    The actor who had to 'kill' 'Daisy' was so troubled he played with the dog between set-ups.
    I feel much better now.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I fast-forward or switch channels when commercials come on so much I barely see them anymore.

    Although the new one for Ikea has me questioned what the hell giant, body-building teddy bears has to do with Swedish furniture.

    Had a discussion the other day about words and their meanings and how they've changed over the years.

    The discussion was about words like “Neurotypical" or "cis-gendered", which essentially mean "not autistic" and "not transgendered".

    One person asked why you can't just use the word normal since the dictionary definition of normal is "typical".

    I've always thought we don't use it because people don't like to be labeled as "not normal" and that what is "normal" is so subjective.

    Then I got to wondering if this was a thing in just the English language or if other languages go through this same transition of certain words no longer being socially acceptable to use.

    Like we used to use the word handicapped but now the word disabled seems to be preferred.

    I figured there were enough people here that spoke other languages than English that would be able to chime in on this.

    I too would love to know if the euphemism treadmill is exclusive to English (or to certain parts of the west).
    If you find yourself naming yourself with adjectives and prefixes, you need a more accurate noun.

    I know I have somewhere a copy of the book "The Shape Under The Sheet" by Stephen Spignesi.
    It's a giant blue door-blocker, easily recognisable and I can't find it...

    I don't remember seeing some actual pictures of a lettered Suntup Misery.
    Even the catalog only has the promotional pictures.

    Anybody got one?
