Friendship, as seen on Sex and the City, Friends, The Golden Girls, plain Girls, etc. is one of the more central themes on TV (as it’s a pretty central theme of life). But this feature on Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion questions why deep (and especially female) friendships that trump romance aren’t the centerpiece for many films, and lauds the absurdist comedy for its rare depiction of the centrality of these relationships.
Ever wonder what happens when you try to photoshop money? Probably not, because you likely assume — as I did — that you’d be able to manipulate it as you might with any other image that’s entered into the program. But Hyperallergic writer Jillian Steinhauer discovered this isn’t at all the case — while trying to edit images for an article about how people were “Spocking” their Canadian 5 dollar bills. She explains:
It’s not just that you can’t Photoshop — as in edit in the Adobe program — money; you can’t even load an image of a CAN$5 banknote that’s already defaced to picture Spock and say “live long and prosper” into Photoshop.
When you try, a screen pops up saying, “This application does not support the editing of banknote images,” which then leads you to a website through the Central Bank Counterfeit Deterrence Group that warns, “The counterfeiting of currency is a crime.” As is dealing drugs, which you should therefore probably avoid doing via an app that specifically logs transaction details.
