1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    Ahhhh that's also why I knew it.... Mr. Evil Dead :) Sam Raimi went to my college (MSU) - he came to a film studies class I had there in the late 80's-early 90's and was friends with the professor and talked to the class. How funny :)

    Edit: He = Sam not Bruce - but that would have been fun too

    Ahhh that is bad ass. xD I knew whatcha meant, but either one would have been super cool. Ive always been a big fan of the Evil Dead movies/Ash Vs. Evil Dead, and all of Bruce Campbells shows and movies. Super ultra nerd stuff and I love it. Lol.

    Good stuff. I was a big fan of horror movies in HS (sneaking out) and college - also post college we used to have a movie night with my 7 (for real) roommates and we'd try to out-B-horror movie everyone with bootlegs. (Kind of like pre- mystery science theater). Attack of the Killer Tomatoes started it but then we eventually found the worst ones we could find (not gorey usually - just cheesy) and made each other watch them.

    Love it. I actually almost watched that earlier. x) Haha. I really like Simon Pegg and Nick Frost(I think that's their names. x_x) I was really into British humor there for a while too, I still am really, but I just dont sit down to watch it as much.

    I don't think there is an episode that didn't make me laugh out loud. I was trying to find a good clip of the bomb-exploding robot one - where Maurice keeps saying "can I keep it" - but couldn't find it.
