Fun Fact
Inspiration for BR was inspired by Black Friday Sales.
People who trample over others for a $2.00 pair of Calvin Klein undies experience something akin to the big O.

The inspiration for Battle Royale was, um, the movie Battle Royale.

O you're no fun.

I noticed a headline about this asteroid making a "close" pass of Earth recently. Can someone explain to me why an asteroid with an orbital period of 2.51 years which passes within the orbit of our moon was only seen for the first time on 14 Apr 2018?

Trump was made aware of it multiple times but declared it ...(insert Jazz hands) *Fake News*

I finished The Sopranos a couple of days ago & just loved re-watching it. First time through was on a flat screen crt back in the day, needless to say widescreen improves it.
Unusually for me I had forgotten absolutely everything. No I lie I remembered the last shot of the last episode, but getting there was such a treat.
It was interesting seeing the cast grow in confidence revelling in the chance to properly flesh out their characters as it's success became apparent post first season.
After eight or so seasons I did not find one dud episode.
Things that surprised me or I had forgotten.
The quality of Juniors performance, also how this steadied the ship & held the whole thing together as both cast & writers found their feet for the first season & a half.
The fact Juniors arc carried so far through the whole thing.
Janice's involvement & how they used her as a catalyst to move things in a new direction. (amazing performance by her)
James Gandolfini...the man, rip. What can you say but he out Brando'd Brando for physicality & presence in every line delivered.
By the second or third season they enhance the sound of his breathing & breath, an inspired device to indicate his tension & stress at that moment.
So many truly great performances, Pauly, Ritchie, Carmella, Tony Blundetto, Artie Bucco the list goes on.
In a sea of sloppy writing & 'B grade acting you have to be grateful & happy that every once in a while lightning strikes.
I also loved, loved Breaking Bad & for a more recent recommendation of top shelf writing mixed with high octane performances try Masters of Sex.

And I'm not getting this whole waterpark story. Why are these guys being held accountable unless they just went and did it without any approval. So there were no engineers and city inspectors that signed off and OK'd the thing? There was zero testing of it at all? Because there should have been and if there was than I don't see how they're liable.

They hid previous injuries. They actually intercepted injury reports from lifeguards and coerced them to change the reports. When one teenage lifeguard went to the cops about this, they sent lawyers to his house to stop him from speaking.

And do you think there's some waterslide specific building inspector in every county? Those guys are making sure that the structure complies with code, same as any other structure. They have no expertise or experience with waterslides, and just because something meets code and passes inspection doesn't mean the builders are free of any liability if it kills someone.

That and absolutely are they held accountable for their death trap.

This water slide was horribly engineered to start with, so the engineering company is at fault. But when the park owners knew something was wrong and continued operating it, that becomes their guilt and acceptance of the consequences.

I hope they all get put in Jail for this. I'm talking minimum 10-20 years each. This needs to be a clear message to everyone in theme parks that cutting corners is not only bad for business but bad for your freedom.

Agreed
Look at the footage no safety procedures or launching equipment at the top just a length of old rope for the "launchers" to precariously hang from while holding the Walmart kids paddling pool, I mean custom made precision sled.

Compare it to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS7m-y-nbQ4

There's a documentary on Netflix called Forks Over Knives

Thanks I'll check it out.
April marks 12 months of doing regular three times a week steep hill walks for me, the last 6 months running down.

The ASrock Motherboard security bios update clown show continues.
So far for the extreme4 z270 they have released 2.40 then quickly pulled it, nothing for months no word. Step up 2.60 installed then it gets pulled then reinstated then pulled no word, as of today 2.70.
Anyway I have installed 2.70 from 2.60 not had a problem with any version. (Kaby Lake)

I believe Jedi is going over his plans should you come at him with the shears.

First I'll attack the arm holding the shears.
If that fails
I'll bite him in the nuts.
