  1. No way am I dealing with this guy directly after he already bolted. Did you file the hit and run?
  2. Agreed. I really liked the first 2/3 but the last part was meh.
  3. So he did have some redeeming features.
  4. Finished my reread of Murderbot Diaries. Great sci-fi novellas about a maladjusted rouge security robot (cyborg contruct?). I highly recommend, funny and irreverent these novellas are pure fun and great for light reads if you want to tear through a couple. Downside is they pretty much charge the same as a price of a full book for each. They really should have combined the four into one novel. Started The Outsider last night.
  5. I'm not sure what you mean by "started out as".
  6. Finished The Handmaids Tail. It was well written, she created a plausible well crafted world but a bit boring and slow overall. Needed something more entertaining before I start on The Testaments so I’m rereading The Murderbot Diaries. Really entertaining set of books if you haven’t read them.
  7. Just finished The Institute (as others said very solid book) and started The Handmaids Tale.
  8. I liked Hyperion better than the other books, but they tell much more of a coherent story than Hyperion does.
  9. Stephenson could use a much better editor. His rambling Into the pure science of everything gets a bit much.
  10. They're going for the wild west or Kung Fu (TV) theme. I wouldn't expect there to be too many urban settings. Everyone's expectations might be a little high for this show. I think they're going for an entertaining serial, not something like GoT or Lost.
  11. I believe wtf used to be filtered and now is not. I thought that was interesting.
  12. It happened in the boys locker room during PE and there were a limited number of kids that had access. He didn't even bother talking to any of the boys. I get it, it doesn't seem like much but it's better than just shrugging your shoulders.
  13. My son's iPhone got stolen a month ago or so. The school resource officer (a licensed policeman) essentially told my son there wasn't much he could do. I'm like wtf man isn't' that your job???
  14. I agree D+ is a huge challenge for Netflix that they will have to accommodate. But one thing I can say about Netflix is that they have never sat back and watched. They ate Blockbuster's lunch even though BB was easily better positioned. They were the first out of the gate on providing digital movie content and then TV content. They were the first to actually set up a digital platform and interface. They were the first to jump on original content and were the ones yelling content will be king. It will be interesting to see how it plays out, because let's face it Amazon and now Disney are unlike anything Netflix has ever been challenged with before, but I wouldn't bet against them yet.
  15. Wow there is an incredible amount of content. My 9yo asked me this morning if Disney owned everything.
  16. For cheap polo shirts I like Haggar. They seem to hold up pretty well and don't shrink a ton.
  17. Are they shrinking or are you growing?
  18. I don't understand this. Just put in James and the Giant Peach and it should come up with options. What's the difficulty?
