Yes, Henry Fonda was one of the all time best villains in this movie. Man, was he cold.

“How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants.”

Great role for Jason Robards too. Not to mention Charles Bronson. What a great movie!

Dogs on Ice Jan 23, 2024, 12:58

I know Blue is a dog lover so I'll tell this story here.

We used to walk our Black Lab at a park alongside a river. Everyone knew each other there, so when someone went in into the river after their dog one winter after it fell through the ice, word spread quickly, and they were of course regarded as a hero. One person we knew had a young Golden named Sandy our dog played with a lot. We were walking and ran into them and said "hey, did you hear that someone's dog went through the ice and they went in after it and saved it?" She answered "Yes, that was me! Sandy went out on the ice and fell through. It wasn't far and she could have swum around the ice floe, but she just kept trying to climb back up the way she came instead. I could see she was getting exhausted so I waded out until I could grab her and pull her around." It was just chest deep on her, so she was able to do it without much danger. But she was a park hero from then on.

Later that year they had to put Sandy up for adoption, and we were able to adopt her as a companion for our Lab. They were quite a pair.

Regarding "Elon Musk’s New Monkey Death Claims Spur Fresh Demands for an SEC Investigation" I was going to say, maybe he should try one first.

...but then I realized, maybe he did? It would certainly explain a lot.

That is the strangest "trailer" I've ever seen. 10 minutes and no gameplay, just navigating menus. I didn't listen to the whole thing, maybe I completely misunderstand and it is a new genre of game based on rapidly navigating a UI.

I'm a programmer, so have to type a lot. But at first I was a self-taught, two finger typist, and I realized I had to step it up.

Any typing program you like will help with training, but I found the key (heh) was to never backstep and revert to two finger (or whatever) typing, even briefly. Once you start learning the real fingering you have to stick with it and don't let old habits break the momentum.

Seeing you are also a fan of Stanislaw Lem, I'll be curious to know what you think of it after playing a while. From what I read in previews it has nothing to do with the book "The Invincible" (which I recently re-read), except being based on the same planet. This kind of pisses me off because it seems to me it is just riding on one of my favorite author's name, without actually adapting the book. But maybe the previews weren't fair.

Speaking of Minority Report, I recently re-watched The 1973 Exorcist which I hadn't seen in 40 years and when I saw the old priest I thought, "Wow, that looks just like Max von Sydow from Minority Report. I wonder if that old guy is his dad." Nope, it was Max. He looked exactly the same 35 years earlier.

BTW, if you love Max von Sydow (as I do), be sure to watch "Flash Gordon" for him playing Ming the Merciless. One of my favorite movie villains ever.

Bravo to you and Mrs. Blue supporting the local library!

We had a referendum here for a new library (as the old one was so dilapidated books were being ruined by roof leaks among many other problems). One commenter against the library said "what do we even need a library for, everything you want to know is on the internet". The perfect example of someone who *really* needs to go to the library once in a while! Fortunately our referendum passed and we have a bustling new library with internet access, study areas, community rooms, youth and after school rooms and lots of books!

I had to laugh at this article when I read it yesterday.

"With 82 percent of the Earth's land biomass comprised of plants, the presence of BPFRs in leaf litter has significant implications," Vejerano says. "When contained in leaves, BPFRs pose no health threats. However, when leaf litter eventually disintegrates, BPFRs can be absorbed into and then dispersed, where they can create potential hazards for human and environmental health."

I could be wrong but, I believe that humans evolved living in and around trees and plants for our entire existence. I mean, for millennia upon millennia we have been living around disintegrating leaves. I'm pretty sure we must have adjusted to it by now. Or is he advocating turning Earth into Coruscant?

I'll join the protest against remaking "The Thin Man".

William Powell *is* The Thin Man!

...well of course, actually he is not, the Thin Man was a character in the movie. But you know what I mean!

And his chemistry with Myrna Loy, over the entire series of movies is probably some of the best ever in Hollywood. She is such a delight.

I hope this is good. I liked Gran Turismo 7 for quite a while, but got sick and tired of the poor AI and the stupid way they did rolling starts for all the races. Rolling starts are fine and realistic of course - in a tight grid. Not spaced out single file over half the race course with you always at the end. And Forza Horizons is just not realistic. So I hope this fills that niche.

Not really, Cyberpunk as a setting split off from our historical reality around the mid 80's accoring to Mike Pondsmith, the creator of the IP. The last version of Cyberpunk TTRPG was called Cyberpunk 2020 and Arasaka Tower was nuked August 20th, 2023. We're so far away from CP's timeline it's not funny.

OK, thanks for straightening me out.

Seems appropriate to me. This war is going to be part of the past of these people in 2077.

And who cares if Russian players are offended? I weep for them. Not.

For one thing, they are apparently playing the Ukrainian version of the game so what do they expect. Besides that, being Russian they almost certainly pirated it anyway. So who cares what they think?
