  • DeCarlo Rules: It seems like they put extras on a disc because people expect them, or it helps drive sales, but more often than not, it seems like very little thought goes into the content. Of course there are some examples where the extras are exceptional, but usually that's not the case.

  • irishmoxie: I love digital movies and streaming. I usually get the Blu-ray Disc because I like to watch the extras the first time and then end up adding the digital code online or rip it and put it on the hard drive. Just much more convenient to stream it then search for the disc when I want to watch it.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On the other hand, maybe I should just bypass the Blu-Ray format altogether, buy a huge terabyte HD, and download everything. There's something to be said for that, in that you can get everything quicker and stacks of Blu-Ray cases aren't taking up space in your house, I guess.

  • DeCarlo Rules: This coming from a guy who still hasn't capitulated to the inevitable domination of Blu-Ray. It's getting to the point where I might have to relent, since I've seen some anime sets being released for the first time on Blu-Ray (no combo pak) with NO release of a DVD version.

  • DeCarlo Rules: I'll never get used to people not being able to wait a few days when they order stuff online. I guess maybe I could understand it IF it were something that there was no other way to see, but I assume you've already seen the episodes.  People who are that impatient usually don't even buy disc sets, they just buy it digitally or stream it.

666 detentions?
« on: May 26, 2016, 01:10:06 pm »
In the final issue of ARCHIE, #666, Archie has reached a new record of 666 detentions (does the Guinness Book of World Records know about this?). That's quite an accomplishment, considering there are only 180 days of school each year, for a total of 720 days of schooling to complete a High School education. That means that out of those 720 days, there were only a maximum of 54 school days (spread over four years) that Archie didn't receive a detention (unless he's racking up multiple detentions in a single day -- but then how can he possibly serve all those detentions in the same day?) I suppose the Bee could have been really worked up on a number of occasions over a single incident, and issued multiple detentions as a result of that one goof-up. Archie's so habitual though, that you'd think the Bee would have just given up on trying to give him detention (he obviously is FAR past learning any valuable lessons as a result of the punishment, and each time Archie pulls a detention, he's punishing a RHS teacher by forcing one of them to stay and monitor the Detention Room) -- but he can't, because then it sets a bad precedent and example for the rest of the school.

Unless Mr. Weatherbee can somehow recall all 73.5 years (at the time he reached #666) that he and Archie have been in school together. If that's the case, then Archie can breath a sigh of relief, knowing that his 666 detentions were accumulated over 13,230 school days, or an average of 1 detention every 20 school days (every 4 weeks). Despite that, 666 has to be an exaggeration of the number of Archie stories where he received a detention. While that's only one a month, and there was a time when ACP published more than 20 titles featuring Archie and the gang, I doubt you could really find all 666 detentions by scouring all the stories and adding them up.

And yet he still entertains hopes of graduating from Riverdale High. Unbelievable.

Perhaps each reprint of a detention story counts as a new detention?

Maybe Archie didn't really serve 666 detentions, but was only assigned that number.  You know how some criminals commit heinous acts and received 125 years prison time or some such number.

Related, there's a story in Reggie #1 where Ms. Grundy gives Reggie 30 detentions in one day, and also Miss Pownce(English Teacher) orders Reggie to stay an hour extra after school in for as long as it takes for him to complete a 1,000 PAGE essay.  I would imagine such an undertaking to be time consuming.

Interesting that you broke down the time needed to serve 666 detentions, it hadn't crossed my mind, but is funny to think about.
