    On a related note, I want to punch people in the face when I see them recording phone videos vertically.

    Uneducated tech cunts.

    My neighbor is the exwife of one of the writers of the show.
    It's pretty realistic even though you wouldnt think it

    That's different. I imagine you were filming yourself in a mirror and vertical framing was needed.

    I'm talking about asshats filming their kid's football or soccer game or dance recital with that shit straight up. I want to pro t out instructions on notecards and hand then out to strangers.

    Now, about that video...

    :pray:

    I read the book it was based off of and it was incredible.

    There was an entire chapter explaining how STUPID the criminals are that wave their rights and talk to the police. It was hysterical the way the detectives could play them like fiddles.
