There's a stupid email protocol you might accidentally use called POP where your local client (outlook, thunderbird, whatever apple uses) downloads the email and deletes it off the server. If you then remove that account from your computer, you call IT and say incoherent things for 20 minutes until they figure out you were using POP and deleted everything.

lol I forgot that POP still exists. But even then, it goes to the local trash folder first unless again, you told the tool not to (I dont imagine his apple mail does it much different). This scenario of "accidentially deleting a million emails" is just very unlikely. Not to mention that google always keeps a copy for... research.

No one was filming unfortunately, but where I used to work they bought a forklift/stockpicker thing designed for narrow aisles. It was a mindfuck to operate because steering was a wheel-like contraption but you stand 90deg off compared to the direction its facing, the steering turns the rear wheels (which are to your left), and you engage the brakes by lifting your foot off a pedal. Until you've built up a muscle memory for it, it's goddamned impossible to steer it the correct direction on the first try or be ready to stand on one foot or jump out of the cockpit to stop the thing.

Within 20 minutes of it being charged up the know-it-all shop mechanic guy jumped right in and put the forks through a cinder block wall in the center of the shop.

They went straight through and it stopped before the body hit the wall because he jumped out to save himself. He wasn't going fast at all, he angled it the wrong way, swung around trying to fix it, then didn't really know how to stop it coasting into the wall.

Depp and Heard mutually accused each other of domestic abuse and the other of fabricating accusations against them. So far the evidence seems to be pointing toward her as the abuser, as audio was leaked of her admitting to beating him and taunting him over it. Both of them provided images of injuries, but it's not proven yet if Depp was defending himself or also attacking her at random.

That was the failed attempt at Universal's "classic monsters" universe, but after the Tom Cruise Mummy flopped so bad the entire thing was abandoned. Russell Crowe was in The Mummy as Dr. Jekyll who I guess was supposed to be the Iron Man/lynchpin of the whole thing. I think Johnny Depp was supposed to be up next as The Invisible Man but after the whole abuse thing that casting fell out of favor fast, especially with the way they took the new completely-standalone Invisible Man with Elizabeth Moss that just came out. Apparently Javier Bardem was supposed to be Frankenstein ('s Monster, don't @ me).

Tom Cruise Mummy wasn't even their first attempt to make the Dark Universe a thing. Apparently Dracula Untold was supposed to be the first one but it bombed so hard they just decided to ignore it and heavily market the next one.

The Mummy with Brendan Fraser was a fun action comedy that didn't take itself seriously but had really solid fight choreography, cool ideas, and a charismatic cast that had actual chemistry and seemed to enjoy working on the film. Watching it with the director's commentary is great because they reveal a lot about the tricks they used (there's more matte paintings than you think!) and funny stories from the set.

The Mummy with Tom Cruise is a washed out action movie with generic horror elements and laughably bad Egyptian mythology that abruptly turns into a Jekyll & Hyde movie midway through because Universal couldn't resist forcibly starting a cinematic universe even if it meant throwing in characters early.

Yeah, the movie got some reshoots to set up a shared thing where they changed a couple of things like a new ending set in modern day.

Avengers: Endgame was the schad on the entire Marvel Moviegoing audience.

Okay, you killed the baddest baddie ever who did the worst thing ever, and went back in time to fix it and wound up screwing everyone else, killing / retiring two of your biggest moneymakers, and basically present a cinematic universe bereft of its biggest draws hoping Dr. Strange, Shang Chi, and another Thor movie will bring the rubes back. Sure.

A major problem being that Tom cruise goddamn sucked in the movie and he used creative control to make it be majorly focused on him and his sole character type of action hero with a joking personality. Basically you can overlay and of the mission impossible movies onto the mummy and his actions and character design would be almost identical because it's all he knows how to play anymore.

There's alot of things wrong with the mummy but alot of them can directly result from cruise being in it.

When the universe just seems too unjust and uncaring, I remember that Tom Cruise couldn't do what Brendan Frasier already did. And he has to live with that fact for the rest of his life. Or maybe eternity, I don't know a lot about scientology.

Either way it makes me smile, just a little.

Before 2008 nobody gave a poo poo about Iron Man and he was basically just known as a fascist by comic book fans. Marvel could build a franchise off the Power Pack at this point.

TBF it's not like they had much choice as the actors were various combinations of getting to old/expensive/didn't want to play the character any more.
