Anachronisms. 4

Welp, I have a handful of minutes to get a fact-filled post up. While standing by my bike, outside, on my phone.

Fargo is a good show, with bits that are less cool because I am jerk? Caught up on the last two episodes tonight and was most disturbed by the presence of a coffeemaker like this in a hotel room in 1979. Nyuh uh, no way.

Automatic drip coffeemakers in 1979 looked like this dammit and weren’t found in every motel room in South Dakota, dammit. DON’T LIE TO ME ABOUT COFFEE, HAWLEY.

    I just watched “Unbroken” and was amused to discover that 3 guys in a rubber raft out on the ocean for 45 days do not grow facial hair. One had a goatee, one had a 5 o’clock shadow and one was clean shaven. Mistakes like that stick out like a sore thumb!

    The facial hair one bugs me as well, especially in scenes where the fellow first wakes up in the morning and his face is baby-butt smooth and free of all things whiskerly.

    What really bugs me are military history cock-ups. Example: The fictitious flying wing in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Or using Harvard training aircraft as Zeros in Tora! Tora! Tora!

    Oh man. We had one of those old coffee makers in our first apartment!
