[edit] lens flare

Mention the lens flare when SB is talking in the lacrosse vid?

[edit] Grandma say wha?

I think Grandma Aundpaw is saying someing like "I never ??? loved you."

It's "I never loved any of you" - 06:30, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] "and take on such a task"

  • Just a note that SB misreads it as "to take on such a task". Danny Lilithborne 07:07, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
"To" would be correct grammar in the context, incidentally. --Belthazar 08:04, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] what problem child?

why is "problem child" listed in real-world references? what is the reference? falling down stairs? that doesn't seem like enough... --Neumannz 07:50, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

The videocassette Strong Bad labels over is labelled "Problem Child 1-8". --DorianGray 07:52, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Real world explanations

I put a Video Toaster entry in real world references before noticing it was in explanations already. Then I saw that Applebee's is in real world references. It would seem that if VT is an explanation Applebee's should be also, and if Applebee's is a rwr VT should be as well (though I could see a flip). What's the proper placement in this case? 11:37, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

I think they are both where they should be. Applebee's is mentioned in a natural context, referred to as a real place—thus, real-world references. The video toasters shown, on the other hand, are not what actual video toasters really are. Thus the unfamiliar term needs an explanation. --DorianGray 12:26, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] lacrosse point

Is this a parody of "Lagrange Point"? That'sBupkis! 20:37, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Um, more than likely no. The joke is that Strong Bad doesn't know what scoring in lacrosse is called (I believe they're "goals"). --DorianGray 20:39, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Remarks

Under remarks it says the longest video cassette is 5 hours. This isn't true. Standard VHS tapes were able to record up to 6 hours at EP and some extended length tapes were able to record up to 8 1/2 hours at EP speed.

[edit] Oh, that music!

I feel like that music that plays during the wedding video sounds very familiar. Does anyone recognize it?MrL 21:23, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] VHS tape limits

  • The longest VHS cassette is eight and a half hours.

I beg to differ. I once bought two 10-hour VHS tapes (lost one, used the other to tape a Ren & Stimpy marathon). I'm hesitant to change it because I want to change it to something a bit less definite, like "8-hours was the most common VHS tape length, although some were as long as 10 hours", and to be honest I have no source to say with absolute certainty that there weren't any tape longer than 10. I believe this warrants further investigation. - 05:49, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia to the rescue! That table indicate that the longest form of VHS cassette is 12 hours. It's for the DF480 (T-240 equiv) type on Extended Play/Super Long recording speed. The article doesn't say how common those were, but they exist. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:04, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Meaning that the entire fact is invalid, as he only needed 12 hours. — Defender1031*Talk 06:35, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Problem Child 2?

I'm pretty sure that this isn't the first time that the Problem Child 1-8 tape has shown up. Maybe we should make this an Inside Reference, or a running gag? -Zero.exe 01:24, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Only if this gag has appeared at least three times in the H*R universe, It qualifies as a running gag.--Record307 Talk/Contribs 01:28, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] The e-mail, from Janina Köppel?

Janina Köppel got married in August. Could that have been her? I know a lot of people probably got married in August (so likely, that probably wasn't her), but holy crap the coincidence in that is just very freaking rare and just crazy, huh? It's most likely not her, but i'll be danged if that's not another weird H*R-related coincidence i've had this year. C-Son-L Sweaters 18:32, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, a lot of people probably got married in August, same as any other month. So much so that chances are plenty of even famous people got married in that, or any given month. I mean, on the first couple of pages of the Google results alone, I found three or four different famous and semi-famous people who all got married in August 2009. And given the speculation that the email might be about August 2010 anyway... --phlip TC 21:22, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] None-out-of-None

Couldn't none-out-of-none couples be said to mean every couple rather then no couples because a number out of the same number is 100%, for example 5 out of 5 pretzels eaten is all the pretzels eaten? --Happypasta 22:47, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

0/0 is actually undefined. --Jay (Talk) 03:04, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Time inbetween emails

I think it may be a good idea Not to show how many days have passed since the last email, It seems TBC may be seeing that as a record they need to break. "281 days? We should make them wait longer!" *Matt does a Trollface* Cyberdemon 01:55, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

I think you're being paranoid. --Jay (Talk) 02:24, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Making a racquet

There was a mini-edit-war between the word "racket" or "racquet" in the article. I support "racket" but want consensus. Does the word "rackquet" even apply to a lacrosse stick? --Jay (Talk) 02:15, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

I don't know the first thing about lacrosse, but neither Wikipedia:Lacrosse nor Wikipedia:Lacrosse stick mention "racket" or "racquet" anywhere, and a Google search for "lacrosse racket" turns up almost no matches. It seems "stick" is the word we should be using. Lira (talk) 03:10, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
When it comes to sports I'd think "racket" and "racquet" would be interchangeable. While "racket" is much more common in America and especially in tennis, I wouldn't necessarily consider it wrong to use "racquet" (and the page Defender linked seems to say something similar). Like a sorta gray/grey situasche. That's a moot point though, since the stick in lacrosse doesn't serve the same purpose as a racket, and is called a, um, lacrosse stick. Or as I learned the other day (from the same page Lira linked), a crosse, but we should stick with the stick. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 03:36, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Agreed and changed accordingly. The Knights Who Say Ni 03:53, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
