Only the nuts.
I have no idea what you are taking about. Things that are easy to learn (scrapbookimng, swing dancing) have a gentle learning curve. Things that are very difficult (Chinese, stringed instruments, reliably launching rockets into space) have a steep learning curve.
One axis is effort and the other is achievement. There is no time axis.
If your independent variable is effort, then high achievement with little effort is a steep curve.
Except that doesn't jibe with the traditional saying which equates a steep learning curve to something that's difficult to learn.
Lots of expressions don't make sense when you think about them.
"Head over heels" comes to mind. Seems to me that's the normal state of affairs.
Here is a picture of my son making a sword at his local Ren Faire a few years ago. He was posted @ Fort Riley Ks.
It took some time but he completed it. I've held it in my hands.
I just realized tonight is not being recorded. I forgot that I had to move it to another DVR. And I am finding it hard to care.
Is he also a Buddhist monk?
You have it exactly backwards
If you get high increases in achievement with little incremental effort, then it has a steep learning curve.
I just watched "The Hunger Games" over the weekend, and thought the same thing about one scene where you see a bunch of swords and such on a wall.. Having a batleth there would've been awesome.
That's only because the term has been co-opted to mean the opposite of its actual meaning.
Off topic for this show, but one thing that was weird was that Missing was shown in the clips of "miniseries" on the Emmys last night. It wasn't always intended as only one year, right? If the ratings had been better, somehow they intended to continue it?
(at least they DID show all of it, though I still have the finale unwatched.. I'm glad they DID show all of it, as well as all of The Firm being shown.)
The rules for what qualifies as a miniseries for the Emmys are completely screwed up, and producers/publicists know how to manipulate the system.
For example: Downton Abbey S1 was in the miniseries category last year, despite the fact that it was an ongoing show. Missing was intended to be an ongoing show, but when it wasn't renewed, the producers submitted it as a miniseries. American Horror Story was renewed and will continue on for a second season, but because they basically ended the S1 storyline and S2 will be a completely new story, it qualified for miniseries as well.
Awards shows in general make a lot more sense if you realize their purpose isn't to make sense; their purpose is to generate publicity.
Finally made it through the Pilot episode.
So far so good. A bit cheesy at times, but still pretty entertaining. Set recordings for the next eps.
I enjoyed last nights episode. I thought it was a very good second episode.
Damn! I was hoping it had sucked, so I would not have to track it down after missing the recording.
Yeah, those kind of untagged spoilers just RUIN the viewing experience. Here I was, just assuming the second episode was going to suck, but then I found out it was a very good episode before I even had a chance to watch it.
So where is the "right" thread? Since there is no episode two thread.
