    What is your favourite scene involving Sherlock and John in series 3? (SPOILERS)

    Yes, that's in Three Garridebs (an otherwise unremarkable story, because it's basically a retelling of The Redheaded League with different details).

    I know what you mean. I do sometimes use the word "friend" rather loosely (e.g., if I'm just telling an anecdote and it's quicker to just say "friend" and it doesn't really matter anyhow), but it does seem that the word is used rather freely by some people, especially nowadays. I suspect that Facebook has something to do with that. How can anybody actually *know* hundreds or thousands of people, let alone consider them friends? Oh, dear, I had one of those! I actually like her a lot, and enjoyed talking with her when we were in a group (which we usually were at first). But if it was just her and me, all I'd hear was her latest woes, and she could go on for (literally) hours. One day I wanted someone to talk with about a situation in my life, and figured OK, she owes me one (or more!), so I phoned her. Three hours later, I still hadn't had a chance to bring up what I'd called her about. So I don't bother to phone her any more. I kinda miss her, but I'm really tired of hearing nothing but woes.

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    Yup, it sure does, as long as you don't mind those posts being removed from their original threads. But I'm puzzled -- how would this new thread differ from a good many of the ones we already have? Whaddaya mean, the way we are? Huh? As for new seasons, #3 was the worst, following after Reichenbach as it did, but we managed somehow. We didn't get the new episodes over here till a while after they were aired in the UK, so we American mods had to either brave the spoilers or avoid certain threads. Coward that I am, I chose the latter, because I knew that some of the other mods had already seen the new season, but that meant that I later had to play catch-up in a major sort of way (just look at the post count for the Empty Hearse thread!). Different time zones are actually helpful, because it means different mods tend to be online at different times, so if something requires immediate attention, it may even get it! And if we need to confer, we just PM each other.

    This image of a sign posted outside Bart's Hospital appeared on Twitter in late April: The same person had previously posted a photo of the hospital surrounded by scaffolding (see entire thread here), assuming it was being demolished or otherwise ruined, and unfortunately that assumption has been retweeted far more times than the hopeful followup above (including on Sherlockology, where only the "bad news" appears on their main Twitter page). Does anyone happen to know whether this is a protected historical building? Or how to find out whether it is?

    The WTF Thread

    Cooler air can hold less water than warmer air. And the air at cloud level is usually cooler than the air down here, so the relative humidity up there is usually higher than the relative humidity down here -- which, come to think of it, is why clouds are usually up there (rather than down here).

    Your favorite (male) actors

    Is that really relevant, though? Once a performance is recorded, it's potentially immortal.

    Yup, thank goodness for cats! And I know what you mean -- my only really local friend is preparing to move away (not far away, but you know....).

    Heck, you need social interaction at just about any time. Keep going to your painting sessions, and meanwhile look around for other possibilities. You've mentioned having some friends, so maybe start there -- suggest some get-togethers with one or more of them, maybe ask them to suggest social activities that they enjoy, etc. Of course I'm a fine one to talk!

    Maybe it really is an awful lot of parties! When I went to the prom, the guy borrowed the family car and picked me up. Nowadays a lot of kids apparently hire limos. So things do seem to have changed. Yes, you probably are. I was one of those twelve-years-in-the-same-school kids, and nevertheless generally felt like an outsider.

    The air is cooler at cloud level, and the cooler the air, the higher the relative humidity. (I've seen it snow at around 40 degrees, too, presumably because it's down to freezing up there.)

    What is your favourite scene involving Moriarty in series 2?

    It wasn't? Wow, that was what really made that scene!

    The WTF Thread

    I see, you were speaking figuratively, in which case I fully agree!
  14. Carol the Dabbler

    The WTF Thread

    No, thank goodness! It's not absolute humidity, it's relative humidity. Warmer air can hold more water than cooler air. Let's say it's 75 degrees outside, so the air could maximally hold X amount of water, but it's currently holding only 90% of that -- so the relative humidity is 90%.

    Just found this video from the Stephen Colbert show, which "explains" how J.J. Abrams talked Harrison Ford into being in Episode VII:
