Proof for the nonexistence of (a merciful) god
HBO is showing Revenge of the Nerds, I-III [1] back to back today. Probably more than once considering how many HBOs I have. I will be otherwise engaged.

[1] I thought the first one was pretty funny when it first came out and I saw it at the post theater. Unfortunately, it has succumbed to the Meatballs effect[2]. The others were always stupid.

[2] Movies from my youth that aren't nearly as enjoyable in later life. This is the opposite of the Stripes effect which is also known as the Caddy Shack effect, Blues Brothers effect, Animal House effect, etc.

I respectfully[1] disagree with you; RotN 1 remains a classic '80s screwball comedy. Part of the fun is seeing the actors who have gone on to bigger things, such as Anthony Edwards, Timothy Busfield, and John Goodman.

[1] By not calling you an uncultured luddite.
