WTF?
Okay?
Maybe it looks Smaller on a wide screen? I'm so confused.

Did you originally see it at the cinema?

[Fark user image image 723x514]

No.
And, it was only a 32 inch. On cable.

Are you saying there's some sort of deep fake going on with this movie? I mean I guess it's possible.  Cinderella's slipper didn't used to have a heart on it. More likely back in the early nineties people didn't use such big coffee cups regularly, so it actually looked big. These days big coffee cups aren't unusual, so it doesn't really look that big. I know it looks big to you again, but my guess would be it's just your perception, not the movie actually being changed.


It did look ridiculously big at the time. Seeing it now, it doesn't.

The puzzle is why a duplicitous bag of crap get to be Home Secretary.

The answer, of course, is that there are only duplicitous bags of crap serving in the Conservative Party.

waxbeans: That is how I felt. When telling my gurl bout it. Then, we both went, meh. But today, OMG it IS big. I'm really annoyed/freaked out.

But, thx. It's big.


There's a bit of forced perspective in the way it's shot. The cup is unusually close to the camera compared to Mike Myers, which makes it look bigger than it is. I suspect the effect is more pronounced on your computer or phone as your eyes are closer to it than they were when you were watching it on a TV.

Given that this was the Daily Fail, I now question the existence of mugs.

Seriously, that looks like it's about 20 oz. or for the non-USAns about 0.6 liters.  A Starbuck's venti, in other words, and lots of gas stations and convenience stores in the USA sell that as their largest sized coffee.

I have no idea what Ms. Patel is like as a politician but can't the public find other things to carp on?

Several years ago my friends were all at a Mexican restaurant that had a huge special (Cinco de Mayo) so seating was tight.  They put us at a hightop with regular chairs so our we were all sitting really low.  Then we ordered the fish bowl giant margaritas.  They took our picture - it looked like we were all little kids.

You can get the one on the right pretty easily.. I miss my old orange and white one. It held more than a pot of coffee.
