Out of the Blue

There have been headlines about it, but to avoid spoiling Jeopardy! I'll comment in hidden text (highlight to read): I have mixed feelings about the end of Matt Amodio's amazing Jeopardy! run. On one level it was fun to watch his amazing play. On the other hand, a vast majority of Matt's wins were what Alex liked to characterize as "runaways" where he couldn't be caught in Final Jeopardy. Fact is, most of his matches seemed over by the end of the first Jeopardy round. So while it was amazing to see Matt demonstrate his incredibly broad knowledgebase, it started to seem almost too easy. What's really too bad is that I believe the Jeopardy rules mean that hosting disqualifies you from playing anymore, so we'll never get to see Matt and Ken Jennings go head-to-head in a tournament of champions.

That Robin test scene, wow. I'd slap down good money right now just to reserve a viewing if a film is ever released.

Good news: The US will have a big share of modern GPUs and CPUs!
Bad news: It is because miners are moving their farms from Asia to the US... Sorry, gamers!
Maybe Biden can copy the Chinese approach and just put an end to the waste of GPUs, CPUs, and energy for this BS in the US.
Those are American jobs you’re talking about. Mining will thrive in the USA, capitalism abhors a vacuum.

Holy cow that guy just nailed Robin Williams! That was seriously impressive.

Yeah. Saw the clip. He's good, but it just seems weird to have someone 'act' like Robin. That level of frenetic energy just always seemed to pour naturally out of him.

The test screen scene is brutal though. There is no way this movie doesn't get made, just based on that one scene.

Nearly doubles the previous record of "underneath your home" snakes.

We in Texas promise to do better.
Does it count if our snakes are scummier and come in human form, Theodore "Rafael Edward" Cruz- Greg Abbott, etc.

I found out about the Jeopardy! thing in a tweet from The Hollywood Reporter hours before the episode aired on the west coast

Apparently, the Hollywood trade "mags"/sites spoil things all the time. Unfollowed

Thanks Twitter :/
