Jurassic Park is the dumbest movie ever made.
Yes, there are a bunch of dumb stoner, Pauly Shore, Freddy Got Fingered comedies too - but at least those were intentionally made.

I donít think Jurassic Park can count as the dumbest movie ever made when Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom is in same franchise.

Vaping Girl Scout Cookies makes Jurassic Park and any David Lynch movie much better.

Oh, I never did bother to venture that far out with the franchise but they're all the same to me.

Freddy Got Fingered is funny. I'd love to see Shout, Kino or Arrow give it a bluray release.

Tiresome movie. When I watched the original Jurassic Park movie in the theater, I was rooting for the raptors to eat those obnoxious kids. I didn't even get that.

One morning a caller to the local talk show with a very liberal host, tried to espouse his version of a cashless society. He felt that we could do away with money altogether. If everything was free, we wouldn't need money. You wouldn't get paid for your job, but when you needed a house, or went to the store it was all free. The host who borders on socialist was the first one to say, he wouldn't bother working. At the very least he'd do as little as possible. Callers started to ask how, why and who would start businesses if there was no benefit to it? Ignoring the fact that it is now a worldwide economy, he felt that everyone would do their best based on the honor system. Most people felt the government would have to be in charge of every business because no one in their right mind would bother opening one if there was no benefit. Do people who do little or nothing get all the same free stuff as the people who work hard? He wasn't able to get one caller on his side.

Money is the root of all evil. But the lack of it is worse.

Shit, if everything was free whatís to stop us ALL from opening up our own business. I would start an ice cream shop down the street and would be built with solid gold and look like the Taj Mahal!

Iíd take a few hundred, no, make it a few thousand, acres of beachfront property too.

That is communism in the purest sense as envisioned by Marx.

Or Star Trek.

As much as I dislike the worship of money and most of the capitalistic philosophy, I must agree with this.

If everything was free, 99% of the people would do nothing while 1% would get saddled with all the work of keeping the world running.

It is axiomatic that people are lazy and always want the easy way out. Less effort means less work. Money provides the psychological incentive of validation, and also makes it easier to get things with less effort and more convenience...

Now, power and clout on the other hand...
