Out of the Blue

A reader named Jason made a helpful suggestion for how to better organize the hardware reviews section. As you can see, this is now organized by type of product, which seems like a good way to make this more useful. I may experiment with other ways to do this, so feel free to propose refinements if you have thoughts on this.

Thank you Jason/Blue!

And speaking of Levar Burton, started watching Community which has to be one of the most amazingly funny/intelligently written shows I have seen in a long time.

And to Disney+, thank you for saving us from a horrible year with The Mandalorian. I look forward to the Obi Wan series.

The Mandalorian is great, I agree; I had forgotten about the Obi Wan series... hopefully that ends up amazing, but I feel it'll be an uphill battle. Also, Community is an amazing show, right up until certain cast members got too famous and left, then it's still a pretty good show.

The Antibiotic Gamble.

It's almost as if antibiotics are so important that they should be subsidized by the government like vaccines.

Regarding the HW section organization, I just HAVE to point out that I suggested exactly this some 15 or 20 years ago, because that was the way it was displayed on Sharky Extreme or wherever and I liked it. I got a resounding "nah" as an answer back then. Glad you finally came round, Blue!

This is the way.

Indeed. And that was surprising to see Katee show up and Bryce Dallas Howard directed that ep. I still think the story writing is pretty weak sauce but the show oozes character.

Tiger was out of it prior to his SNAFU on the 12th. But, to give the uninitiated an idea how unusual getting a 10 on a par 3 is.. the previous high shot count Tiger had for a par 3 in a PGA tournament was 6.

No green jacket for you.
Tiger had a shit 12th hole and shot a 10 on a par 3 with 3 in the drink.
The 16th is the skipping pond if you were wondering.

No, the magpies don't love it they do it because they need to eat. They'd rather have their money for nothing and their chicks for free same as the rest of us. And he wants them picking up cigarette butts? They'll get sick from that shit. Fucking jackass.

And yes everyone universally agrees LB would make the perfect host of Jeopardy. Shouldn't even be a contest.

Snowbirds can still fly to the U.S. and ship their cars. But the Canadian government is asking seniors to think twice before leaving the country, because their age makes them more susceptible to falling seriously ill from COVID-19.

Well what's the fucking point in having the border closed for "non-essential" travel in that case? If this doesn't qualify as non-essential I don't know what does.

Met Don McLean when I was doing lighting at the OPF. Super nice guy. It was amazing to see him do Vincent live. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Guy has nothing better to do than wasting all that time and money for what? Video likes? How about cleaning up the dump you live in instead.

Is the black man who assaulted Moranis going to be charged with a hate crime? I doubt it.
