Hugo Gorilla - 2015-10-14

It's funny how the devil put all these hidden messages in the least watched and least liked Back to the Future movie. I guess Lord Baphomet in the marketing department screwed that up.

Two Jar Slave - 2015-10-14

I liked Back to the Future III! I think it has a bad rap because it strays so far from the first movie, but that doesn't make it a bad flick in its own right. Pound-for-pound, I think I enjoy it more than the second one, even though (or because?) it doesn't have as many crazy ideas. Plus its incarnation of Biff is my favourite in the series.

So, yeah, I guess I'm with Lord Baphomet on this one.

Raggamuffin - 2015-10-14

I always thought that people got so excited by all the future stuff in the second one that it was really jarring for audiences to deal with a whole movie in the old west.

Personally I don't even think of them as 3 separate movies anymore. If I'm going to watch one of them, I watch them all in order as a three part series.

I really wanted to see Back to the Future with dinosaurs.
I was very upset that it never continued.

I like the series with the context of Zimeciks' trajectory as a director. Forest Gump was chronologically all over the place but that was cool for nostalgia and whatnot, Castaway wasn't set anywhere, Flight was very grounded in the present, and World Trade Center Tightrope Movie just looks cool. Back to the Future just seemed like a cool way to make 3 genres of movies with big budgets.

I can't believe he's making such a big deal over Back to the Future 3 referencing a scene in The Shining.

And let's not forget about the kid pointing to his dick at the end!

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-10-14


No one's mentioning this, and I can't tell if this common knowledge, but here's what this guy seems to not know.

"Google " is named after a very large number called a googol. A googol is 10 to the hundredth power, a one followed by 100. A googolplex is a googol is Googol to the googolith power, or something ridiculous like that.

EvilHomer - 2015-10-14

There is no indication that this guy doesn't know "googol" is a number. That is common knowledge, and he states that it is a number on at least one occasion.

He draws the googol-Google comparison because various numbers in the scene, such as the timestamp from when the Doc says "googol", are vaguely related to numbers that he found on Google's Wikipedia page.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-10-14

Never mind.

CIWB - 2015-10-14

I dunno, he seems to think that it's very significant that this movie referenced googol years before Google, Inc. was founded. Does he think that Google invented the idea that a googol is a very large number, or that it was such an obscure reference that no one outside of academia could have known about it before Google came around? He seems pretty dumb/crazy, so anything's possible.

I learned about googol around 1989, but I was a really nerdy kid.

EvilHomer - 2015-10-14

It's probably "predictive programming" - that is, someone (in this case Baphomet Himself?) knew that a dickwad information company named "Google" would be founded in the near future. The Hellywood scriptwriters had Doc say the rarely-mentioned number "googol" in order to pre-condition the masses to accept Google's evil stranglehold on society, and the line was placed at a very specific time in the film, for some bizarre reason that probably has something to do with Assyrian numerology.

At least, having watched many videos like this myself, that's what I'd assume this guy is trying to say. I can't really be sure, though, since this video starts getting really convoluted by the time he finally starts talking about Google.

EvilHomer - 2015-10-14

Yeah, probably '89 myself! My dad was a math teacher, and my friends were all math-teacher-kids too, so we loved nerdy shit like that.

I remember in first grade, when I was drawing up plans for my Dog Kingdom's Space Armada, I shoehorned the number "googol" into a bunch of places where it probably didn't belong. Most notably, the Dog Kingdom's rivals, the Evil Empire of Cats (led by Jackie the Gross Girl Who Sat Next to Me), they had this hybrid spaceship/ ocean-going ship-o'-the-line named the Popploo. The Popploo, like all Popple designs, was a pretty useless war ship, but it had one significant advantage over my Dogs' sleek Orion-class Star Sloops: a crew contingent of over a GOOGOL cute, bloodthirsty Popples!!! It was OK, though, because I had several kickass Dog mecha that carried a googolplex plasma cannons apiece. Quality over quantity, that was the Dog philosophy, you know?

Anyway, that is how I learned about googol.

Two Jar Slave - 2015-10-14

There was a pretty funny article in the New Yorker recently about Google's new font, and they mentioned that the company's name wasn't exactly "from" anything, but was meant to invoke both the unimaginable vastness of the googol as well as the sounds a baby makes. As in, "We will navigate this ocean of data together, with childlike wonder and innocence." I'd never thought much about the word before, but if that's true it's some darn good branding.

Dunno what Yahoo was going for, though.

spikestoyiu - 2015-10-15

My friends and I all said it in grade school (back in the 80's) because we knew it was a large number so it came in handy for shit like "you are fat times a googol".

So I think it's fair to say we also predicted Google.

EvilHomer - 2015-10-15

I just checked your profile page, spikes. It says you've submitted 85 videos, which according to Wikipedia, is the exact dollar amount of Google's initial public share price. You are ranked 191 (an anagram of 9/11) in total votes, while Google's initial startup capital was 0 thousand in 1998 (1998 is an anagram of 1989, a year when you were a child). 191 + 100 is 291, and get this: Google recently sold some assets to the Chinese for .91 billion!

Google prediction - confirmed.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-10-14

>>>The term was coined in 1920 by 9-year-old Milton Sirotta (19111981), nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner.[1] Kasner popularized the concept in his 1940 book Mathematics and the Imagination.[2] Other names for googol include ten duotrigintillion on the short scale, ten thousand sexdecillion on the long scale, or ten sexdecilliard on the Peletier long scale.

According to a BBC documentary, young Milton got his inspiration from Barney Google, a character in the Snuffy Smith comic strip.

>not knowing what a googolplex was before google

Old_Zircon - 2015-10-14

"Googolplex" is just the old west word for "gigawatt."

I've got to go put money on the Cubs to win the world series over Miami in 2015.
