Former PS1 programmer here: It's because perspective correct texture maps involve a divide operation per-pixel, which was too expensive for PS1 hardware at the time. To reduce the "texture swimming" effect, you had to break a larger polygon up into smaller ones and remap the UVs, which was expensive, but nowhere near as expensive as full perspective correct textures.

where the nature of the person's work means that nearly all the motorcyclists they interact with are the ones that are badly injured or dead. my grandmother told me that her father, town doctor in the 1950s, forbade any of his family members from getting a motorcycle because "he'd had to put too many young kids back together."
My ma was an ER nurse and said the same thing as that town doctor, except it was the 90s not the 50s. And while I agree ER staff have a sampling bias, it's also true that motorcyclists are likely to come off a lot worse in multi-vehicle crashes. Cagers have airbags and crumple zones and sheer mass to protect them, motorcyclists have (hopefully) a helmet and protective gear, and that's it.

What do these movies have in common?

- Toy Story 4
- Inside Out (the Pixar movie)
- Less Than Zero
- Back to the Future II & III
- Queen & Slim
- Baby Driver
- Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
- The Outsiders




Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers is in all of them, always in some tiny bit part. What the hell?
