I'm not sure I follow you. Work has gotten you in a bad mood, and now you're asking for a movie to make you feel even worse?

I wanted a cathartic cry. The idea was to build the emotions to the breaking point then the hormone release to would ease some of the emotional stress of holding my tongue.

Work has been a bitch lately and extrememly emotionally draining. I need a good sob story reccomendation to reset myself. You guys got any ideas?

As a genral reccomendation I'd say Jackie Chan's "Project A" and "P roject A 2." There are some great classic farce set ups and Jackie Chan plays the quintiscential Jackie Chan Character. (The man has 2-3 basic character archtypes he plays. It's worth it to spend the time binging his movies on netflix, if you actually need an example of his work)

"Little Big Soldier" is my favorite of Jackie Chan's work so far. It's Chinese history and Jackie Chan singing and I didnt know that was a combination I'd love to see more of.

(Why yes, I did just finish watching all of Jackie Chan's movies on Netflix last week. How did you know?)

I had a criminally warm winter  :(

I bitch a lot about snow, but now I miss it.

Come to the Midwest of the U.S. We're having freezing rain mixed with snow right now in Chicago, and other parts of the Midwest are probably having similarly shitty weather.

I'm 7ish hours north of you. The ski hall of fame is 20 minutes away. Olympians come to train in our snow. I think you've gotten more snow this winter than we have. (Though we have a winter storm advisery quoting 4-10" right now, 2" last night)

Questioning the "universe of monkeys"

As in a paralel universe of monkeys they would not have the ability to create the works of Shakespeare?
There is a one in a trillion chance they would comunicate in a human understood language?
Would they even give a shit? Would we give a shit to replicate the literature of a monkey universe?

I enjoyed it the brief few days I played it. I'm on an ipad2 most of the time and it kept crashing. I might try again now that I might be able to play on my phone, but it's designed as a time waster without a goal. Dont think I really need a time suck that much

I think in part it goes back to the barter system. "I have x-skill/strength/time and will do y in exchange for your skill/strength/time." If you look at the history of currency it started as a representation of "x-cows for y-sheep" or whatever the agreement was. Eventually that became "valuable metal for x-cows" and then a regulated amount of valuable metal became coins. Now you can argue that the cows turned into a skill and then into a time alotment.

Translating that into work analagies, look at the basics of survival food+shelter. How would you get your food and ensure your shelter? Maybe you're a super hunter but I claimed prime cave realestate. For x amout of meat I might agree to share my cave and you are able to survive another winter.
