I have no idea what it means or how to react when someone says how much a baby weighs

Am I supposed to act impressed, or concerned? I guess I should study a table of average baby weights by year so I know whether the number is high or low. But even then, I wouldn't know what to say.

"Can you believe it? Forty-five pounds!"

"Wow! I wish I weighed the equivalent of that for a six-foot-tall adult, got any tips?"

@Nine Yeah and the vast majority of people who watch Netflix etc use an app or a dedicated box connected to their TV anyway. Acting like there's no point in making a browser if it can't watch Netflix is bananas. It's like saying there's no point making a light bulb if it doesn't have wi-fi. Just a total tech bubble reality distortion field

I'm not worried about the future of the web, because a web site is a document with text and pictures that links to other documents with text and pictures, and whatever version of Firefox I use will always be able to do that just fine. What a bunch of billionaires want to pay a bunch of millionaires to pay a bunch of hundred thousandaires to do with javascript is of no concern to me

If the band Blood On The Dance Floor ever goes on tour in France they can call it "Blood On The France Tour"

"Friends" is such a shockingly generic title for anything it's hard to believe it's real. It's like if there was a popular romance novel called "Romance", or a western TV show called "Cowboys"

What do you mean the show "Friends" isn't about quakers. What else would it be about

I had a dream that there was a Megaman X boss called "Flamenco Flamingo". It's a dream that I had while I was awake, and am continuing to have right now

There are only two kinds of video games: walking simulators (any game where you can walk, such as Mario or Zelda), and flight simulators (any game where you move around but aren't walking, such as Ecco the Dolphin or Tetris)

I am unsure what's in this box, but it's probably bad

There are so many English syllables that are difficult for Japanese speakers to pronounce, and we can't even do them the courtesy of pronouncing their syllables correctly

Like, they have 1% the number of syllables that we do and we can pronounce almost all of them no problem, we just can't be bothered. "Carry-OHkee". Pathetic
