also characters don't really need to be deep in fiction, they just have to serve the narrative. the Joker can absolutely be compelling as a random crisis generator for hypermethodical batman

I don't think the joker should ever present coherent reasons for what he does. he shouldn't have a traumatic past or any past at all. I dont think he should strictly even be intentionally criminal. I think the joker should just be someone who continually does things with no clear connective logic or purpose

PSA: last night one of our pyrex cooking dishes exploded.

not fractured, exploded. โ€œpyrex isnโ€™t supposed to do thatโ€ we thought.

as of a few years ago, Pyrex sold their brand, the new company changed glass recipe as a cost cutting measure, resulting in a pandemic of exploding cookware and a class action lawsuit.

thankfully the patent has expired and the keyword to look for in competing glass cookware products is โ€œborosilicate glassโ€

vent, employment
