Details regarding Dragons

Yesterday I was speaking with my son about Dragons. I told him that dragons will eat people but mostly they fly around and pick up cows and sheep that are easily found in the fields.

And the fire they breathe? Well, that comes from eating coal, which they like to do. After eating coal, they create stomach gases that they blow out, but to light it, they make a spark with their teeth.

It really is amazing how easy it is to answer a 5-year old's questions if you put your mind to it.

Stanley Tucci eating a roast chicken

This is a metaphor (I think).

If Stanley Tucci was eating a whole roast chicken in front of you, he would approach the meal shyly and then rip into it. He would slather himself with grease because he would disregard what other people think and only consider how to enjoy the feast with the most gusto possible. And he would be totally unashamed doing it. When he comes close to finishing all the meat and even the skin, he would take each bone and suck any residual flesh off of it.

That is just the kind of actor he is.

I think in between 1 and 2 he should have said, right click my computer, click on properties, click on device manager,
and ... it didnt work immediately. i should wait to reboot before i post, maybe??


A Gory Laugh

This looks like a video that Cronenberg would have made before making it big.

Warning, lots of blood.
