Indiana Jones and the "Spielburg needs to stop making moves"

Found this abridged script that someone put together for Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.

Spoiler alert, but it's damn funny.

My favorite (slightly non-spoiler) lines are:

HARRISON teaches his film class entitled “How To Ruin Millions Of Childhoods In 2 Hours” when he is interrupted by the DEAN, JIM BROADBENT.

and this one:


What are we doing in the Amazon?


Cate wants to return the Crystal MacGuffin to the ancient City of Gold.


City of Gold? Isn’t that what Nicolas Cage was looking for in National Treasure 2? Are we seriously getting the plot for our shitty sequel to Indiana Jones by ripping off the plot of a shitty sequel to a shitty knock-off of Indiana Jones? I feel like that should unravel the space-time continuum or something.

Buahahaha! Seriously, that movie sucked the life outta me. I'll just pretend it never happened just like Star Wars Episodes I-III.

I thought this was an interesting article:

Why Women Quit Technology Careers

I work in a technology field that is male dominated and I feel very lucky where I am. Everything in that article was my biggest fear when I was job hunting. I really didn't want to get stuck working with an old cranky engineer that thought women should be barefoot and pregnant (I've heard some horror stories). I've only been in this field for two and a half years now and I've never felt like I was inferior because I wasn't toting a sausage and peas.
