Dr. George Rebane (“systems scientist,” PhD, etc., etc., etc.) goes to the movies

From the “You can’t make this stuff up!”/”Small towns are a hoot”! department. Or how about “Erudite blogger mingles with the LCD!? (lowest common denominator)” Note sarcasm:

“Well, Jo Ann and I don’t go to the movies much, so we thought ‘what the hell, even though comic book heroes  [Avengers: Endgame] are not our favorite past time, the cultural experience sitting with a live audience should be worth it – so we went last night to the GV del Oro theater and wedged ourselves between an interesting menagerie of humanity that included a pair of motor-mouths behind us rattling their popcorn bags and bumping the backs of our seats, and next to a couple of twenty-something females who hauled in a four-year-old young man who had been taught no social skills about how to behave in polite company (perhaps because it didn’t turn out to be all that polite).  Anyway, the theater’s noise level during the movie was something to behold – when will they provide the audio over our own wireless, noise-cancelling headsets?”

“So now the 3+ hour movie.  It was the most banal attempt to combine some awkwardly composed serious dialogue with action scenes designed for the comprehension of six-year-olds that unsuccessfully attempted to explain the role of quantum-based time travel by the characters before they found themselves battling the vast array of minions in the service of a really bad guy who wanted to destroy the universe – we noticed that we’re now beyond simply destroying the earth, or our solar system, or even the galaxy – and then build a new one more to his liking. ”

I shudder to think what the good Dr. George thought of “The Time Machine” when it came out in 1960! ROFLOL.

  1. Well I’m sure Lord George would have been happier sitting in a private box — removed from the serfs. Note sarcasm.

  2. I’m hearing from quite a few people that the movie was great. If it was so bad, how does he explain the high box office receipts?

  3. I definitely got a chuckle out of this, and it reminded me of a past debate over at Rebane’s (or was it perhaps on Russ’ now defunct blog?)…the great light bulb debate, culminating in the proud declaration that some there would be hoarding incandescent bulbs to hedge against creeping government intrusion into personal choice 🙂 I wonder what happened to that hoard of energy wasting short lived incandescent bulbs when Russ moved to Sun City? Well guess what, after 10 years they get a reprieve from another curmudgeon muppet …https://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/energy-environment/441286-energy-wasting-lightbulbs-arent-worth-saving-so-why-is

    1. And don’t forget Gregory “the world is flat” G. Does he have a real job other than posting on blogs? And is getting a physics degree from a Catholic college an oxymoron? ROFLOL.

  4. Get a load of this latest post from a regular on George Rebane’s blog. It’s amazing:
    “Re: the bedwetter:

    Liberalism IS a mental disease. Now they are trying to ban Mother’s Day because it’s not inclusive to guys who haven’t cut off their peckers yet….on purpose. You call that sane? Normal? Calling liberalism a disease is being generous. Dis-ease. A Debbie Downer lot. No fun to be anywhere near and unsafe at any speed.

    Add the government IS the employer of last resort. Well, I suppose some guaranteed basic income is in the same class as many government workers. Unaccountable and their solutions are worse than the problems. If they weren’t around, few would notice or miss them.

    And ragheads can go off and play with 72 Virgin olives. I’ll fly 10,000 miles to smoke a camel. Yeah, IlhanOmar was upset that Israel did not thank her for the gift of 700 missiles fired on civilians. Talk about baby killers. Some people did something.

    Well, I don’t recall ever calling kids stupid. That’s a Lefty thing. They called Trump’s adolescent boy retarded. They really are so despicable and vengeful and nasty that they have bloodlust for Trump’s family members. They are obsessed with hurting Trup’s family members to the maximum extent and ruin their lives. They cry out for Trump’s family to be fed to the lions like in the old Roman Coliseum. Death! That is some sick shit. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    I do recall calling Roberta Flack dumb, stupid, ignorant, and a whole bunch more. He runs around all scared that we are going to march him up against the Wall as his side is planning and having wet dreams of marching us up against the Wall of Leftinista Tyranny. Maybe Bobbie is right. A preemptive strike would put him out of his misery. It would be the merciful thing to do.

    Ah, it all will be over Friday, June 21. First day of summer. Dumbshit Bobbie said quite emphatically and without equivocation that Trump would be gone from office this Spring. Spring, 2019. Guaranteed. Bank on it. Now, if that ain’t proof Bobbie Sue is dumb, ignorant, or stupid, then kindly tell me is. Ok, it’s a disease, not stupidity or gross ignorance. He said it to bring us together….you know, unite us against Trump and his “goons”. They be Deplorables and as Biden said, “Dregs of Society.”

    Well, I give Bobbie Sue until June 21 when Spring officially ends. Then I doubt he will be heard of again. No self-respecting man of integrity would dare, dare I say, to show his wretched face of these boards ever again after that colossal cluster gluck arrogant and snippy proclamation. Oppps, I said no man of integrity. Silly me.

    A man of integrity would cop to their errant ways with a public admission to their broken thinker, be contrite, ask for forgiveness, and learn from past grievous wrongs. Then all is well and forgotten. Ha! Never happen. That takes the voluntary lowing of pride.

    First day of Summer is 5-6 weeks away then ‘poof’ and the disappearing act. I can wait until then to tell him what I really think. :).

    Don’t let the door hit ya.
