Take your current age. Subtract 10 years. Were you smart then? Of course not, you were a goddamn idiot. You're just as much of an idiot now, it'll just take you 10 more years to realize it.

By this line of reasoning, anything you choose to do is a bad idea.

The best tattoo has meaning to you and not to an external audience, or so I’m told. And it could also be a conversation starter.

"Ask me about Grim Fandango" tattooed across your forehead could strike up many a conversation

I plan on getting my leg covered in tats over time, I'd have a bunch of little ones like that.

My favourite horror is Shura (Demons), with Phase IV being among them. Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is a masterpiece as well. The Demon from 1963 is vastly underrated.

If you want some essential "outsider" horror films:

The Boxer's Omen
The Beast of Yucca Flats
Science Crazed (so fucked up that I would call it an "anti-horror" film)
Scanners 3: The Takeover
Mad Mutilator
Robo Vampire
The Carrier
Winterbeast
Mutilations

I’m “saving” movies on Netflix and Prime Video for next month. So excited!

@PH One of them is Phase IV. Very excited for that one on your recommendation.

I have an idea for my hobby YouTube channel. I do videos talking and showing off multimedia and edutainment stuff for Windows 3.1 and 95. Would that be a good idea?

Some of my fondest memories of Windows 95 are of multimedia and edutainment stuff.

Depends on the angle you're going for, I think. Lotta that stuff relied heavily on the novelty of "multimedia", which isn't that interesting in and of itself anymore (Encarta and the like). On the other hand, there were plenty of interactive CD-ROMs (not to mention Enhanced CDs for years afterwards) that may have had unique content. Before things like they contained might have become DVD extras or whatnot. That's more what I could see an ongoing series able to work with.
