Out of the Blue

Scott Burns To Heavily Re-Write "Bond 25" has word that the script for the next Bond movie is getting a re-write. This is often a sign that the end-product will be no bueno, but I feel there have been some recent examples of movies that required last-minute re-writes and even reshoots after test screenings that have turned out fine. I certainly hope this is the case, in particular because it looks like it will probably be Daniel Craig's last outing as 007, and it would be nice for it to be in a movie that lives up to his debut outing in Casino Royale.

Let the anti-vaxxers have thier way. Let the bodies of their children pile up when they contract deadly and perfectly preventable diseases. People who are THAT fucking RETARDED should not be allowed to breed in the first place, so when their unvaccinated kids die (and they WILL die), then that just helps clean some of the shit out of the gene pool.

I know I've read some stuff by Benford before, he wrote one of the "new" Foundation novels, right? I'll have to check out this Galactic Center Saga...

That article about Heinlein is basically from an interview with Gregory Benford. Benford is one of my all time favorite sci-fi authors. He mostly writes believable "hard" sci-fi, which I suppose makes sense given his background in physics but some of it is truly on an epic scale.

If you haven't had the chance check out Benford's Galactic Center series. It starts of rather slow, but picks up the pace by book three or so. One of the few series that actually gets better and better with each new book.

Gets good at book 3 is to genre novels what “fun after the first 15 hours” is to video games.

Which usually means that shit is my jam and therefore this is an amazing recommendation and I’m going to hit up the library request system tomorrow!

Heh. Yeah I get what you mean It's not that the first two books are bad, they are pretty great it's just that because of the scale and scope of the events taking place, they are a bit of a slow burn. Once the characters start connecting the dots, the implications are absolutely stunning and the action and pace really picks up in book three.

You shouldn't eat anything in 1 second. Your jaw is meant to break it down first, then swallow.

Also, bananas are delicious. Especially ice cream bananas.
Yes, bananas are good. And they help with depression.

To that end, get properly dosed on potassium, magnesium citrate, and niacin.

I haven't seen talk about True Detective thus far. Right up there with season 1 to me. And I didn't think S2 was all that bad. I thought Vince Vaughn was awesome. Maybe that shows how little I know about acting.

LOL. Bill de Blasio is claiming Amazon deciding to not build in LIC is "an abuse of corporate power". Uh, what? The abuse of corporate power was them extorting the city and state to offer billions in tax breaks to build there in the first place. Crazy, especially considering the recent news of Amazon paying no federal income taxes.

Last month, YouTube, the Google-owned company said it would start reducing its recommendations of "borderline content" and videos that may misinform users in "harmful ways."

Wtf are they not just banning them outright? If they won't take responsibility they should be made to be responsible. Put them on the hook for financial damages to society and watch them change that tune faster than shit through a goose.

Ohio teenager Ethan Lindenberger grew up thinking that not being vaccinated was normal, posting on a popular Reddit post last November, that "my parents think vaccines are some kind of government scheme."

Fucking seriously? And people wonder why I think reproduction needs to be a licensed event. This is the result of liberalism run amok. Way past time to stop talking about human "rights" and start demanding human responsibility.

I gave up on Craig's Bond after Skyfall.

I did like Casino Royale a lot, but it seems they got marginally worse every outing.

Skyfall was the best of the lot by far.

It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)

Welp Italy, it's been nice knowing ya. I'm okay with it though, as most of your contributions to society were in the past and preserved for posterity in art history and cookbooks. Vaccinated Swiss docents can give tours of the colossium when you're all gone.

It's too bad that measles does not sterilize unvaccinated adults.
