  1. Do you know this one?
  2. Cool And still better than lying down with the rider already in the saddle.
  3. If you don't mind showing the documents to a stranger - I have Photoshop and though I'm have no superpowers when it comes to it, I might try some tricks.
  4. Have you tried to enhance the pics with Photoshop?
  5. https://www.cosplaycentral.com/topics/cosplay/feature/benedict-cumberbatch-meets-his-doppelganger-at-doctor-strange-premiere
  6. Would they start to shoot it without saying? They would need to start soon, if not doing it already, to be done in Nov. Also - are they going to work with Una's ghost? It's some stupid fake news imo. Someone out there wants attention.
  7. Oh, Polish is especially nice to borrowed words. Because we have to flex (pun intended) and do other funny things to them. First example coming to my mind: The Beatles. The name is a word in plural. But Beatles sounds like singular masculine in Polish. So it was changed to plural (because it's a band of forur Beatles), and it's Beatlesi, which translated back to English would make quite gollum-y (The) Beatleses. The same with Rolling Stones, The Stranglers… and probably most of similar built band names. This link below shows what my language makes to foreign names, as well as any foreign nouns - as far as they are physiologically pronounceable. https://www.inpolish.edu.pl/single-post/2017/05/22/how-to-decline-names-and-surnames-in-polish
  8. As for Poland, you must understand, that there is a lot of common history of both countries. Here is a gif that shows the development of polish borders. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Territorial-changes-of-Poland-1635-2009-small.gif#/media/File:Territorial-changes-of-Poland-1635-2009-small.gif that will explain a lot I hope. The fact is, that a part of Ukraine belonged to Poland until the end of WWII. There are lot of Poles living in Ukraine, there are many people in Poland that were living on the Ukrainian territory before it was taken by Soviet Union. (My mom was born in Lviv and fled with her family at the age of 12.) Many Ukrainians live and work in Poland now, having families on the other side of the border. The language is quite similar, obviously many people living in Ukraine know Polish. There were also some dark chapters with Ukrainian separatists siding with Hitler, but now the positives seem to be more present. So much for the history. It doesn't mean, I'm not bothered by the obvious difference in treating Ukrainian refugees differently in the whole Europe and that there are obviously better and worse kinds of refugees. Maybe people think that it all would be over soon, that it's only women and children, and they intend to go back asap. I'm afraid that if the war will go on for longer, the attitude might change.
  9. It looks like Putin became the first "leader" who implemented the idea from Ender's War. "Just tell them it's a drill". I'm taking the disinformation war into consideration, but it still looks like Vlad has lost his mind.
  10. You can talk. It's easy posting embarrassing pics of others, while hiding behind frosted glass. PS: I can't post my gifs anymore.
  11. I'm from Poland but living in Germany. Not panicking yet, but I get my share of chills and deja vu's from the eighties. Sting's "Russians" runs in the radio. I didn't expected that. At least not on that scale (there is a war since 2014 in parts of Ukraine that is still running). Many people think Putin went mad and I can understand this, especially as he looks a lot like a paper tiger - so far. Unless this is a trick too. I wonder if that was the reason behind Russia supporting Trump - they wanted to have an ally in the USA.
  12. Maybe Mrs Hudson has also a secret sister? Or daughter, who would inherit the place and become Mrs Hudson 2.0?
  13. Oh, another thing - the dialogues often felt forced, not fitting the situations. All that Bronco Henry talking, referring to the parents as the old ones, it all didn't fit, even with the characters. My impression was too often: "people don't talk like this".
  14. I meant an emotional connection. I surely had no sympathy fo ANY of the characters. And not enough antypathy either. It still works inside me on another level though. I keep wondering what else is different from what it seems to be. Now I would call it a movie with a clever idea, but not appealing to me. I might look after the book though.
  15. Okay, flying abilities - This is a whole special sort of dreams and they sometime seem to belong to the same alternative universe. But I also often dream about places that seem or actually are familiar - from somewhere, and they are definitely not real.
  16. The problem is: did I also remember the older dreams before I had a dream where I remembered them? I'm not that sure. This remembering might be also a part of the dream, a kind of false memory. In dreams the memories don't feel like something I've dreamed before but parts... of a parallell universe or something.
  17. Oh, those obstacle course dreams are actually permanent on the menue here. When they are emotionally loaded and feel more like reality than watching a movie - I wake up totally exhausted. What I was wondering recently though: sometimes I seem to recall strange parts while I'm dreaming. Kind of wrong memories, but somehow I think they were other dreams in the past. Which is - of course - not possible to confirm. And I've had some more of the pseudo-lucid dreams. I'm suddenly aware that I'm dreaming, but because I still have no (or hardly) control of the situation, I just might dream of having a lucid dream. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  18. Okay, didn't like the movie that much. It could use a bit more "vigor" imo. I absolutely couldn't find any connection to any of the characters, they seemed so stiff and artificial to me. A good music would make the whole experience a bit better too, by matching those maginficent landscapes (I hate banjo, maybe that's the reason). BUT The story was a bit spoiled to me by a recension, so I was warned to look beyond the obvious. And still, as it finally clicked, the sound might have been heard outside. Hell, that was a surprise! The rule of Hitschcock comes to mind - when there is a gun visible at the beginning, it's going to fire at the end. Still the twist would be nicer if I actually cared for those characters. ETA:
  19. No, why should I spend money on some more chemicals?
  20. Not yet. Once I thought that Mary Watson would be an even more fitting partner for Sherlock, while John would take care of Rosie.
  21. Oh, there could be a daughter or niece of her who would inherit the house. We would have a Mrs Hudson 2.0. Almost as we've had a Watson 2.0 aka Mary.
  22. All this could also be a description of a so called High Sensitive Person. It describes me quite good, but what is missing - the fact of being drained by interpersonal interaction as opposite to being energized by it (extroverts), which for me is the most significant difference. Oh that's why I often process people as things. Mostly as nuisances.
