Unavoidably detained by the world

Pretending to Be Humans of New York

"I love these little gum spots on the ground! It’s like a city of polka dots!"

As parody pranks go, this one manages to be good-natured and sweet while still hilarious.

Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Wiig Sing “Let It Go”

"Kids don’t know what fractals are!"

This might be the best one yet.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA MOM-WATCH 2014
So a few weeks ago, my mom binge-watched Battlestar Galactica, and texted me continuously as she did. Some highlights that I feel compelled to share with the world:

“Why do they have whiteboards with markers from Staples?”
—-
"It’s becoming more complicated now with almost everyone being robots."
—-
"Why is Dr. Baltar so obviously creepy?"
—-
“On TV and in movies people are knocked unconscious all the time, wake up and then start shooting people.”
—-
"They are all drinking so much on a regular basis that they could never protect a fleet!" 
—-
HER: “Is [name redacted for spoilers] dead?! Is it the end of her character?”ME: “Do you want me to answer that?”HER: “Yes, but indirectly.”ME: “I’m…not sure that’s possible.”
—-
“Baltar has become one of my favorite characters at this point with his Jesus Christ hairstyle”
—-
“What was the baby-faced Lee going to do as his new vocation?” 
—-
"Please tell me where the Cylons buy their jeans."

The Birdcage

"Something starts in your pelvis and works its way towards your heart, where it becomes heart! Slash pelvis! Yes?"

One of my all-time favorite Robin Williams scenes.

“You can’t come in,” the nurse of frowning said. “Family only.”

All of us stepped forward and linked arms at the same time until we formed a ragtag human chain that surrounded the entire hospital and extended out even into the parking lot.

“We are family,” we said in a single voice, all at the same time even, we hadn’t even practiced that part but it just worked out that way, and so the nurse changed hospital regulations right there on the spot for us, in honor of the connection we had formed together, because we weren’t just teammates anymore, we were a family.

Even the guy who had always said he was only in it for the money came back at the last second.

“You said you were just in it for the money!” I said.

“You’re all idiots and I don’t care about you even a little bit at all,” he said, but know we all knew he was kidding and we wouldn’t believe it when he told us he only cared about the money in the future.

“You know, in a weird way, it’s almost like all of you are my family,” I said. The strong woman, who was usually very literal and also we made out that one time, didn’t understand.

“But we’re not related by blood,” she said.

“Yes,” said the revenge man, “I have no blood relatives at all. My people were all destroyed. This is why I seek revenge.”

“I know,” I said, “but it’s almost like we’re family anyway. Without the blood.”

This thing pretty accurately encapsulates the plots of some of my favorite things, and I am now slightly ashamed.
