Out of the Mouths of Babes By Roderick on May 17, 2009 19 In this Teen Titans clip, when Robin is fighting Dr. Light, at 5:46 it sure sounds to me as though Robin yells Fuck! Any alternative interpretations? Lapsus Linguae, Science Fiction
Sounds like a generic grunt to me, if a slightly weird one. At most, I hear “fuh”.
I heard, “fuck it.”
There was a Xena episode where, for some reason, a friend and I entered into a very energetic debate over whether Callisto had said, “to chat” or “chit chat.”
Sounds like a clear “fuck it” to me.
Well, it struck me as a grunt, like “FUH, ACK” but said quickly, but … OH WAIT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A TEEN TITANS EPISODE ON THIS BLOG WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON RODERICK??????????!!!1111!
Can you specify what your objection is exactly?
For the record. The Robin in Teen Titans is Dick Grayson. Dick is the same age as Cyborg, and Starfire, and Raven are Dick’s team-mates.
In current DC continuety they RAven and Starfire are with Dick in the outsiders, and now the current Titans series.
Yes, Cyborg is still on the Tim teen titans but he’s quite a bit older then Tim.
The transparency is killing me. Is it just Safari 4 beta, or is everyone else seeing this?
I see it, but it’s not very strong for me.
The transparency is only 10%, meaning the content is 90% opaque. If you’re having trouble seeing that I’d question the quality of your monitor, or perhaps your graphics settings. I assume you’re using a mac. They have a reputation for
raping their customers in the arse, er, sorry, I meant leeching off the open-source community and giving nothing backusing top quality monitor hardware. So I’m not sure why you’re having issues, unless you assumed the transparency was unintentional.
I think he means that the transparency, or maybe the background, is slowing down the page significantly. This has been happening to me too, on multiple browsers.
While this is also true, I really meant that it’s distracting. I’m sure everyone has a different level of what they consider distracting.
I’ve found mine here.
By now you’ve probably noticed that Brandon has reduced the transparency.
Oh, sorry about that Black Bloke. My problem was different, then. Specifically, scrolling up or down is very slow. I fixed this by blocking the background image (the one at http://aaeblog.com/wp-content/themes/tarski/styles/images/roderick.jpg).
The scrolling speed is fine for me, but I have an extremely powerful rig. Can you list your computer’s hardware/software specs, please sir?
No longrod, I didn’t change the transparency settings. 90% is the limit.
I have to agree with Kevin. It sounds like the end of an “ooph” followed by an “ack”. I also have to agree with his other comments, but it appears part of a recent theme (like the post about Aladdin–and Teen Titans).
Incidentally, and related to what Black Bloke was saying, the “Older Entries” and “Newer Entries” links in the monthly archives are virtually impossible to see (blue on mostly blue) unless your mouse happens to hover over them.
Yeah, ’tis so for me too.
I’ll ask Brandon.
That too has been fixed.
