Somewhere around here I have a Smith Corona typewriter/word processor with built in white-out. (A functioning, real-world delete key. It's the human waste.)

I should probably track down somebody selling ribbons for the thing and stockpile a couple.

A hot dog toaster is something that exists. Reviews say it sucks, so I won't link to it.

Once upon a time, Norton Utilities was the human waste. Fix anything magic, keep your mac running super smooth good as new.

This is funny. But also, damn bastards, it does say vegetarian under 'soy chorizo', but I can see a lot of people making the same mistake. Bad design, or did they do it on purpose?

They sell meat chorizos, too, and they're all labeled the same way.

I'm not sure if I'd buy food that was talking to me, like "Me compra, pendejo. Soy sabroso, como pollo."

That's just commonly used placeholder text used when the final text isn't available. It's latin from a work by Cicero and is about 2000 years old. So says the internet, anyway.
I wonder if Chinese businesses have their own version of placeholder text.

A dolly zoom, it was invented by Irmin Robert, a cameraman who worked on Hitchcock's Virtigo.

I have a 1TB drive in front of me right now. It's literally the size of a book, like 6,5 x 5 inches and 2.5 inches thick.

Not this model, but similar size. Image for scale:

The SD card is not only incredible small, but probably a lot faster.

And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.
