You know that film is dead...

... when you have to say that what was being put into a camera is a roll of film as this clip from the recent "Sin City - A Dame to Die For" did because otherwise the modern audience wouldn't know what it was.

Weights and Measures Craziness

I was comparing the nutrition information of two bags of cheese at the grocer's today.
And noted that the information was based on the amount of cheese by cup and gram.
Somehow, although they are both using 30 grams as the measure - one has 30 grams being 1/3 of a cup but with the other the same 30 grams is 1/4 of a cup.
Hmmmmm. So what does a web-based converter say?
Apparently 1/4 of a cup isn't 30 grams - it's 59!
I give up.
