So I'm rewatching the original VHS promo for Ocarina of Time and I was struck by the sheer number of beta elements present in the footage.

It's Matthias Wandel time again!

I'm sure there's a simpler option, but his credo is why buy what you can build.

So people have apparently been trying to figure out the mechanics of the slot machines in Pokemon RBY for years. I'd insult this, but I'm sure I've obsessed about more pointless things myself *cough* Prime Directive *cough* Maquis *cough* Yu-gi-oh *grumble*.

10 actors who were on both Star Trek and Stargate.


Most of these I knew about, but I was surprised to see that Jellico on Trek and Kinsey on Gate are the same guy.

Someone broke a watch by soaking it in oil, so this guy resurrects it with a thorough cleaning.


This kind of intricate machinery is always impressive. I'm a big proponent of restoration instead of replacement wherever possible. I've seen plenty of examples of "oh, that can't possibly be restored" where I've been proven wrong.



Then again, some restorations seem to go too far in my opinion. It's the Ship of Theseus paradox all over again, replace too much and I can't call it the same thing as the original in good conscience.



I'm confused at the comparison between the Ship of Theseus and the Cutty Sark, frankly. One is internal restoration, one is external restoration. I call the Ship of Theseus the same ship because the onboard crew was able to take raw materials and do the restoration en route. The Cutty Sark needed complicated parts from elsewhere and wasn't functional in the interim.

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving. Here's a roundup of links...


The Mouse on the Mayflower. Our VHS tape was much-loved until it broke. At least we'll always have YouTube. It's a shame how few people know about the wider range of Rankin-Bass specials.



Garfield's Thanksgiving. I confess to having less nostalgia for this one than the Christmas special, but it still has some good moments.



This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers. I'm actually not that fond of the regular Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special. Peppermint Patty is really a jerk in that one.



A compilation of Friends Thanksgiving clips.



Intergalactic Thanksgiving. I never heard of this one before the Cinema Snob episode, but give it a whirl if you want something a little different.



Ashens trying Turkey and Stuffing Doughnuts


Kurn will try some burned replicated bird meat

Back in the FMV days Terry Farrell starred in a puzzle game called Treasure Quest.


Which inspired a search for other Trek alumni in video games...

This is just weird. Putting cinnamon sticks in epoxy, then turning it on a lathe.
