  1. I remember you told that story in detail in a previous famous people encounter thread years ago...such a great story.
  2. I’m 60 years old I use subtitles/ closed captioning for everything
  3. I’m watching Broadchurch now...with subtitles. I’ll check out Taboo next.
  4. I thought Peaky just got better and better with every season. Agree Alfie / Tom Hardy = incredibly good character. I read it might be late 2020 or early 2021 when S6 comes out. :sad:
  5. Interesting stat I saw on Twitter: Kirk Douglas lived through the terms of 40% of the US Presidents.
  6. I posted this on Page 6 of this thread....my story is from a young lady but maybe a male Pacer PA announcer had a similar story.... Someone I know posted this on Facebook. Thought was worth passing on here: “In my time working as an emcee for the Pacers several years ago, I had the pleasure of interacting with him briefly and he was truly in a league of his own. I remember being a little bit confused at the end of the game he’d asked me to hang around outside locker room area for a couple minutes. Then, when he got done with his interviews, he popped back out and shook my hand and said he realized I was new (it was my first year doing that job) because he hasn’t seen me before so he wanted to officially introduce himself and ask a little bit about my background and goals. But what stick with me— aside from the time he was taking for someone who was just only a college kid at the time—- was that he wanted to take the time to tell me I was doing a great job and to impress upon me to keep going and chasing my dreams. He was truly in the league of his own. RIP Kobe, Gianna & the other passengers who lost their lives today.“

  8. Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 2 coming to Netflix 28-February. (also Uppity: The Willy T. Ribbs Story on 5-February)
  9. A&E is not available on YouTubeTV. My only regret about cutting the cable is no LivePD.
  10. I just finished The Witcher last night. It is not in the genre of shows I normally watch but I liked it a lot. I couldn’t follow the time jumps very well I guess and might not have noticed them at all if I hadn’t seen it mentioned here (But I’m pretty dumb about that stuff...had enough trouble following Scott Bakula and his Quantum Leap escapades.)
  11. The best ever Eddie Murphy is probably always going to be Delirious for me.
  12. Watched The Spy over the holiday break. Very good. Those people really liked bread and butter. What was that all about?
  13. Auto racing lost another huge contributor this month Bill Simpson https://racer.com/2019/12/16/racer-and-safety-pioneer-bill-simpson-dies-at-79/ He was a driver but was better known for his safety equipment. He developed the parachutes used by drag racers and fire proof driver suits (with help from his friend astronaut Pete Conrad) among many other things that saved lives and serious injuries. Also put Rick Mears in Rick’s first Indy Car.
