Damn straight. They're so judgemental and unappreciative of everything you do for them.

Luls. Especially when you feed it for a year or two and then expose it to "not-even-that-cold" temperature and it looks like this:

The minitrailer before the actual trailer. If I've clicked on the trailer, I don't need to be teased for what's already coming. :hanging:

First time I saw it was BR 2049.


New Mission Impossible trailer has it as well.

I'm unsure, but if that is an African Violet...they are fairly difficult to maintain/grow. So, don't be too hard on yourself in this case.

One year, I received a Flower Bulb Kit and it was so great to watch the flower grow/bloom. I highly recommend growing one with your little one...use a clear vase, so she can see the roots sprout along with the flower (educational). The one I received was an Amaryllis and it was gorgeous. You can buy the flower bulbs at your local garden store and pickup the rest of the materials you will need at the dollar store. These also make for great Valentine's Day gifts for your loved ones. You can store extra bulbs in the fridge until you're ready to use them. The Amaryllis I had grew to about 18" in height...such a great gift idea. I loved it.

I don't mind it too much. It's just the studios way of making sure their trailer isn't obscured by the first five seconds of ads on YouTube.

it's also done that way because views on videos for web content the views count after 3-5 seconds.

you might notice that alot of videos have 'bait text' in the first few seconds to keep you interested to count as a view.

Yeah, in the realm of teasers for teasers and trailers for teaser trailers and posters for teasers for trailers, five seconds of video before the actual trailer is fairly low down on the list.

Don't know if this is a pet peeve but it bugs me. The Carly Simon song "You're So Vain". If you're not familiar with the song she sings "you're so vain, you probably think this song is about you". Well, whoever she is singing the song about is not vain because the song freaking is about them. Whew. Glad I got that off my chest.
