Yes Man (2008) Jim Carrey’s has always been one of my favourite comedians by far.
Rick and Morty (2016-2017) It’s got the perfect amount of science mixed into the satirical comedy.

Because with my steel toe shoes and ninja like reflexes, I stand a better chance. Ducks are evil, I have been bitten and chased more than once by horses and ducks when we had a farm, I can’t imagine how bad a duck bite from a horse sized duck would hurt!

I feel happiest when I'm reaching a goal I've set for myself. There's nothing like seeing all my hard work paying off.
I once briefly got stuck underneath a waterfall.
I'm currently brushing up some of my technical skills (ongoing forever); I'm trying to teach myself powershell scripting as a jumping off point to make myself a little more efficient.
