Joke Knuckle is the story of a well-meaning but misguided army officer who tries to spread joy and friendship throughout the American forces in Iraq during the first Gulf War. After a head injury deemed not serious enough for medical discharge, Joke Knuckle (real name Jerry Kerchestenek) decides that the way to make war more fun for everyone is to punch them in the face.
This turned out to be a horrible idea, especially for the movie’s audience. There just wasn’t anything funny about JK’s actions. Other films have used slapstick violence to great comedic effect, but here, they didn’t even try.
It was especially insulting to see JK singlehandedly win the war by punching the guns out of everyone’s hands. Not only is this historically inaccurate, but even if it had been attempted, it wouldn’t have worked. Sneaking up on one armed combattant is hard enough without have to worry about doing the same to 300,000 more right after. Also, guns are made of materials much more solid than human hands and JK’s knuckles would be in too much pain to continue after one or two fistidissarmings.
In summary, this film does not actually exist for a very good reason. It is far too stupid an idea to have been produced anywhere but my subconscious mind.

I usually don’t remember any of my dreams, but I remember what I was doing just before I woke up this morning.
I was in a movie theater watching a war movie called Joke Knuckle. I don’t usually like movies about war or movies with horrible titles, so I think it was chosen by whoever I was with. I think they thought it would be a comedy, but it was completely grim and serious and also generally not very good. If you see this film playing in your dreams tonight, I recommend not seeing it.
Chess is one of the few games that is more fun online than against someone in the same room. You have as much time to plan as you need and you have a significantly lower chance of getting punched in the face. You should use the green rectangle in the right sidebar to challenge me.
note: The above video should not distract you from the green rectangle in the right sidebar. It is included because it’s related to chess.
The Sloth People are not actually related to sloths or people, but are so named because they act somewhat like both. Like sloths, they spend much of their time eating, climbing, and sleeping in trees. Like humans, they have the capacity for communicating verbally. They think mostly about the daily needs of their slothful lives, but in all the time they spend resting, much deep philosophical pondering occurs. Such big ideas are expressed via complicated metaphors involving food and sleep.

Yesterday, I told you about a jpop song/video that I disliked. Negative opinions are too negative, so I will stop posting them (unless I really want to).
So today, I am posting a positive opinion of a different jpop song/video. Like Inside Fishbowl, Flying Humanoid is a good title, but it stands out by also being a good song. This is an important difference.
Coincidentally, it is the opening song for an anime series that I also like. If interested, you can find that here.
