DeaH: Flab: $19 for a movie ticket?  Holy shiat!  I need to get out more.  Last time I went to a movie, I paid $9.

It's $19.99 ($CAN) an IMAX ticket in Montreal. It's $20.99 for a D-Box simulator seat. The last time I went to an IMAX 3D movie in the evening, it was $17 ($ US) in Ohio, so that doesn't seem too out of line. It's crazy expensive, which is why I tend to avoid IMAX 3D,



Oh yeah, I can't wait to see The Great Maple Syrup Heist in Ultra AVX IMAX 3D. It's rumored to have an elaborate action montage where they, like, siphon off a lot of barrels. Now, picture that, but in 3D!

This movie will print money. Mark my words.

wildcardjack: Ah, the self causing economic irregularity caused by supply crimping cartels.

Maple syrup prices are high enough you don't often find it in restaurants. Thus prices have to be high because demand is weaker than it would be if the prices were lower. Thus they have to hoard more maple syrup because the price is too high. Then people use less maple syrup. So they have to raise prices to make up for the fall in demand. And then the warehouses fill with years and years worth of maple syrup until Vermont farmers start a campaign for "Fresh Vermont Maple Syrup" pointing to the dominating Canadian maple reserves as being stale and years old. But global demand has dropped enough by this point that everyone is clamoring for fresh syrup, and Vermont syrup sells for a premium. Someone in the cartel decides to drop the price to undercut the Vermont sellers, but Vermont is winning on something other than price. Soon the price of Canadian syrup (called stale-yup by foodies) drops low enough that it shows up again at restaurants.

Gentlemen, if we do nothing to force the dismantling of the canadian syrup cartel we may have an International House of Pancakes incident.

I was trying to figure out why I think it smells like death one day, so I did some random Googling. There were countless posts about people smelling a mystery maple syrup smell in their homes and wondering if (or discovering that) an animal had died and had started to rot.  I am honestly not out of my mind.

cgraves67:
I agree. Maple Syrup has a "rotten meat" smell to it to me too. It's not precisely like it; it's kind of a sweeter version of the smell.

Sometimes, I wonder if I spend too much time on Fark. But then I get to learn something I couldn't possibly have learned anywhere else, and it makes it all worthwhile.

And Jason Segal is starring in the movie.  I think I might want to see that.
