Talk:The Tolstoy Principle (and Dad "talks" to Daniel)
I've noticed a number of things wrong in this specific article. I just wanted to include them all here so that if anyone wants to argue them with me, they can.
For starters, under the transcript section, it says that Bree's dad opens the door to let Daniel in and to give Bree his lab coat: this is not true. If you watch the video, after Daniel enters and Bree's dad closes the door, he takes the lab coat with him - so he's not "giving" the coat to Bree... he probably just had it in his hand after work or whatever.
Yes, I do realize that she is later seen wearing the lab coat -- but we never see her dad give it to her. This is something I'll put in the notes section.
Second, the transcript is actually off. The part where she actually explains what the Tolstoy Principal is missing. There may be others, but I'm going to re-watch the video and try to find all the transcript mistakes.
That one also ties in with the bottom notes section, because that is also not true. Maybe the Amazon thing is correct, but Bree does explain what the Tolstoy Principal is ("domestical animals are all alike, but every undomesticable animal is undomesticable in it's own right"). --Andy 20:55, 4 November 2006 (PST)
- hey, i deleted what i assume to be your note: "* The way in which the clips of this video are presented makes it appear that the sequence of events in the video are not in proper chronological order. For instance, we see Bree's dad open the door in the very beginning to let Daniel in, but Daniel is not in the room in the next clip. Later, Daniel is in the room but we never saw him enter." i think it's pointless because it doesn't prove that it's out of chrological order. as to daniel not being in the room, bree explains in a note that "my dad and dniel left to talk." as to daniel not entering, well she doesn't film everything, she must have just edited out him entering the room. none of this is significant.--Skeeta 00:49, 11 December 2006 (CST)
- I don't understand why you think this note was pointless or insignificant. I thought that this information was interesting and helpful, so I'm restoring it. --Treefunk 01:57, 11 December 2006 (CST)
- It's not my note, but I also see no reason for it to have been deleted.--JayHenry 08:13, 11 December 2006 (CST)
Mesh Flinders as Drew Avery?
I have no idea where the information came from that Mesh played Drew in this video, not Greg (like all the rest). Is there any evidence that it is, in fact, Mesh? •Silver• Talk | Contribs 20:59, 2 September 2007 (CDT)
