    Vanilla Sky is Cameron Crowes best work.
    I haven't seen the movie in almost twenty years, but at the time, it struck me as one of the most pointless remakes I'd ever seen, almost a carbon copy of Abre los ojos. The most significant difference between the two films is the just noticeable effect of time and gravity on Penelope Cruz's titties.
    Just because...
    The Childhood of Maxim Gorky (Mark Donskoy, 1938) cold
    Invasión (Hugo Santiago, 1969) cold
    The Affair (Yoshida Kiju, 1967) mild

    The last book I read was...
    The Varieties of Religious Experience: A Study in Human Nature by William James

    I own both. Also this has no bearing on my statement. Also I didnt say it was better than original. It was an indictment of Crowe, not necessarily a movie review.

    I think the meta-text of Cruise's celebrity combined with Crowe's pop culture obsession are valuable, but yeah the plot is basically a straight copy. But the additions from Cruise and Crowe are solid.

    Living with parents who are both physically and mentally ill is really taking a toll on me.

    I just farted so loud into the toilet at work that I feel there is zero chance that everyone in the store didn't hear it.

    Do I walk out embarrassed or proud?

    It's an unwritten rule that we don't comment on toilet noises. So nothing happened.

    Pre smart phones, I was the guy who’d grab a magazine / newspaper and walk straight towards the restroom when it was time for business. Walk with your head high.

    Vanilla Sky is the last time Tom Cruise was attractive without letting psychotic energy get in the way.

    But how loud could he fart into a public toilet?

    If you have a sphere that is hollow, and you cut it in half to make a bowl, there's a hole in a sphere. But if a bowl is already a bowl and never was a sphere, is that still a hole?

    I'm not sure this is a given. I feel like for something to be a hole it has to be much smaller than the object it's in. You can cut a circle with a three-inch diameter into a basketball and make a hole. But if you slice the basketball in half I don't think I'd call that a hole anymore.

    So length has nothing to do with the definition of a hole? (if the basketball was an oval?)

    I don't know. I don't know anything anymore. After seeing that, I don't even know if someone can fall in a hole.

    I think most of those depend almost solely on how you define a hole.

    The idea of saying a washer has two holes seems like utter lunacy to me.

    In my heart of hearts I staunchly believe that the letter 'O' has a hole but a rubber band does not. But what's the difference, really?

    The people saying a spoon has a hole in it are clinically insane.

    It depends on your definition of "hole": (i) in the sense that an object is fully penetrated from one side to the other, or (ii) in the sense that a hollow depression is formed in an object (because we always refer to a hole in the ground, for example, though of course it does not pass all the way through to the other side of the earth).

    For me, it is (left to right, top to bottom):
    1, 1, 1
    0 or 1 depending if it has a handle, 0, 0
    0, 1, I don't understand the question

    I can see why "a loop on a knot" got some votes for having two holes. It matters which side/hole you feed the rope through when tying knots.
