Not really a surprise though is it? You don't put all your eggs in one basket.

My mum is probably just thankful that the old PC isn't sitting in the dining room doing nothing :P

Not much of an island is it?

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

I think for me the problem was that the entire film pretty much consisted of:

and didn't feel like it added much to the series other than the 'Uncle Ben' moment and silly ending premise.

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Tbh whilst I enjoyed No Way Home, it just felt like 2 hours of fan service to me. It didn't feel like a 'good' film that exists beyond the novelty of... well, you know.

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Garfield spends 90% of the film blubbing, working that bottom lip wobble like he was training it for the olympics. Peter Parker is outright miserable, and while Tobey Maguire’s performance was hardly cheerful, at least he wasn’t openly weeping at any given moment. https://i...

Re: Ukraine

It isn't as nearly as sinister or organised as you might think. It is no worse than symbolism used by certain metal fans for example. I see a lot of similar nordic, Thor hammer, Vegvisir, Yggdrasil, skull imagery in the bushcrafting/prepper community too, right-leaning maybe, rather than full-on na...

Re: Ukraine

I've noticed a few instances of Ukrainian soldiers in news reports having far right/Nazi emblems on their uniforms. It's a shame, as it easily serves as propaganda for the Russians. A recent example of this is in a BBC news report from Kharkiv by Quentin Sommerville. His reports are excellent, and h...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

The one thing to recognise is that China has a zero-tolerance policy, so shuts down as soon as a few infections are recorded, but the point is we have BA2 running rife here, and zero real mitigations in place...just how bad will it get before action, and will that action be effective. I think zero ...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

No...? Hong Kong is having an awful time atm because their elderly population has a weirdly low vaccination rate (something like 50% doubly vaccinated over the age of 70), and this is the first massive wave that they've had. China really needs to decide how it is going to act with this virus in the ...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

Will massively vary by country. The UK death toll is not far off the excess deaths, whereas in countries like Russia and India the numbers are waaay less reliable and probably add a large amount to the estimate.
