lens flare

Mention the lens flare when SB is talking in the lacrosse vid?

Grandma say wha?

I think Grandma Aundpaw is saying someing like "I never ??? loved you."

It's "I never loved any of you" -128.103.10.119 06:30, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

"and take on such a task"

  • Just a note that SB misreads it as "to take on such a task". Danny Lilithborne 07:07, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
"To" would be correct grammar in the context, incidentally. --Belthazar 08:04, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

what problem child?

why is "problem child" listed in real-world references? what is the reference? falling down stairs? that doesn't seem like enough... --Neumannz 07:50, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

The videocassette Strong Bad labels over is labelled "Problem Child 1-8". --DorianGray 07:52, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Real world explanations

I put a Video Toaster entry in real world references before noticing it was in explanations already. Then I saw that Applebee's is in real world references. It would seem that if VT is an explanation Applebee's should be also, and if Applebee's is a rwr VT should be as well (though I could see a flip). What's the proper placement in this case?146.122.71.68 11:37, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

I think they are both where they should be. Applebee's is mentioned in a natural context, referred to as a real place—thus, real-world references. The video toasters shown, on the other hand, are not what actual video toasters really are. Thus the unfamiliar term needs an explanation. --DorianGray 12:26, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

lacrosse point

Is this a parody of "Lagrange Point"? That'sBupkis! 20:37, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Um, more than likely no. The joke is that Strong Bad doesn't know what scoring in lacrosse is called (I believe they're "goals"). --DorianGray 20:39, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Remarks

Under remarks it says the longest video cassette is 5 hours. This isn't true. Standard VHS tapes were able to record up to 6 hours at EP and some extended length tapes were able to record up to 8 1/2 hours at EP speed.

Oh, that music!

I feel like that music that plays during the wedding video sounds very familiar. Does anyone recognize it?MrL 21:23, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

VHS tape limits

  • The longest VHS cassette is eight and a half hours.

I beg to differ. I once bought two 10-hour VHS tapes (lost one, used the other to tape a Ren & Stimpy marathon). I'm hesitant to change it because I want to change it to something a bit less definite, like "8-hours was the most common VHS tape length, although some were as long as 10 hours", and to be honest I have no source to say with absolute certainty that there weren't any tape longer than 10. I believe this warrants further investigation. - 70.75.182.168 05:49, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
