That's the problem with those old buildings. It costs far more to repair and maintain them then it would be to scrap them and build something new and efficient. It's just a huge waste of money for a public service building.
Have you never heard of sentimental value? It's not an "old building." For Londoners and England in general, Big Ben (the building and the clock) remains a part of the culture and heritage for over 150 years. I guarantee you if you asked any Londoner what you just said, they would be appalled at such a thought.
Well, my main objection to Dunkirk is it actually happened. And while it is certainly an example of something we need to remember so we can make every effort not to repeat it -- watching a realistic re-enactment doesn't seem "entertaining". But I agree, it looks like another good film by Nolan, and despite my being hesitant about it -- I will probably see it at some point.
By the way, I just got the NVidia class action refund on my two GTX970 cards. Anyone else receive this? Did I miss a story on it?
You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of The Evil Within in order to jump into The Evil Within 2 and understand the conflict and setting
I mean, the power gets converted at the plug level (right at the wall), doesn't it? Or do modern smartphones charge at the full 110V* (US) or 230V* (EU) without any conversion to low power? Does the juice from the wall go straight through the cable into the phone/tub?
