    "BBC Sherlock" articles & other miscellany

    I haven't either. Sherlock is all that IMDb has on his acting credits. Maybe his parents want him to finish school first. He seems to have changed his stage name from Louis Oliver (which of course fooled no one) to Louis Moffat.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    It does seem that running Sherrinford would be a full-time job! What she does as E and as Faith, though, is not just fool John and Sherlock, but to actually make fools of them. Maybe that's what the writers were going for.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    Depends on who's lying to me, and about what. If I'm lied to "for my own good," for example, I'll be indignant. If i find out that someone has lied to me in order to make themselves "more interesting," I'll be bewildered. In either case I'll find it very hard to trust that person again. But I can't think of any time when being lied to has sent me into a screaming rage. Maybe I've just been lucky. Or gullible. Or maybe it depends on what you mean by "angry."

    Might have fleas in it -- that makes sense. But plumbing? You've lost me. They are?

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    The only times I've experienced that, it *was* an earthquake, so I have no idea what you felt. Unless -- was your little doggie playing trampoline? Was your heart pounding? Was your downstairs neighbor playing his subwoofer extra loud?

    As you might imagine, there are a lot of jokes about flea markets. I have no idea why they're called that. In Hawaii they're called swap meets, though it didn't look to me like anyone was swapping anything.

    Looks like "Public Market" may be the most common term. Here's a list of various types of markets (public, farmer's, flea, etc.) in all 50 states.

    I have no idea how common they are. And different cities apparently call them different things. I knew there was also one in Rochester NY, but I see that it's called a Public Market.

    Not all cities have them. Indianapolis is one that does.

    I have actually tried much stronger words than that. Unfortunately they seem to have little effect.

    Good heavens -- wearing those bloomers was bad enough in front of the other girls! Even though we enjoyed playing baseball, we didn't care for being outdoors in our bloomers, in full sight of the classrooms and the highway. Even from a practical standpoint, though -- how could the boys and girls do the same things? Or did the girls and boys do things differently, despite being in the same class?

    Herlock’s London Adventure 2018

    Maybe you're seeing only what you're looking for. There's a well-known phenomenon that people never really get to know their own cities in the same way that tourists do. While it's true that our cities aren't as old as London (which of course dates back two thousand years to the Roman occupation, if not earlier), age isn't necessarily a requirement for richness. But that said, I do love London.

    Right, you won't get all the buttons on your phone. If you switch the phone browser to Desktop Site mode, you'll get more of the buttons, but still not all. At least that's how it is for me. I sure wish the phone version had the remove-formatting button, mostly because that version has a nasty habit of changing portions of my text to a sort of negative image that's nearly illegible. Usually the Undo button will fix that (at the expense of losing whatever change I was attempting to make), but sometimes I have to close out and start over. Or just say phooey on it.
