    The Political Thread

    Maybe after this. I found it on a German internet first. Read 'till the second last sentence. Or the second last sentence alone. In any case, read the second last sentence. https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/08/09/walmart-halts-most-game-sales-following-shootings

    The Political Thread

    Yes. Cummings is the guy. I think WMDs are an official term for chemical, nuclear and biological weapons. "to cause maximum harm to the maximum number of people in the shortest time possible" would also apply to flintlocks and muskets, or even to a bow and arrows in the times they were invented. Just saying. Plus: the number of people coming together in a mall, or a railway station, or even on a street in a big city today, in the times of the Founding Fathers were only a case when two armies stood on a battlefield.

    The WTF Thread

    It seems to be the sign of the time. Because really, people do believe and talk things you think no sane person would take seriously, To differentiate between stupidity and comedy/irony is almost impossible nowadays. As for me: I just mark the day in my calendar and buy a stash of popcorn-buckets.

    How Did You Find Us?

    The mansion they filmed the interiors in TFP was indeed for sale last year. The information might be somewhere here too. It's even possible that I've posted it here. Well, you never know where you end, once you start looking for Mycroft. Be careful it's not Serbia or Sherrinford.

    Mark Gatiss News

    And I didn't have any interest in Sherlock Holmes at all. Not that it changed much regarding SH - BBC (aka "our") Sherlock is an exception. I have seen so many shows, films, listened to audiobooks etc. because of the show, Dracula is just another in the queue.

    Mark was always, even if not all the time, wearing beards. As long as Sue isn't starting one, it's still okay, I think. Maybe Steven was yelled at by angry Johnlockers on the streets, so he thought he should hide. A bit. Maybe. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Favourite "Sherlock" Pictures, etc.

    The oldest reference I could find for this picture is December 22, 2011 in THIS GALLERY about SIB. It's definitely an extra photoshoot, as the smilie is not the one from the set. There are several pictures with this setting: https://blogs.weta.org/tellyvisions/2011/12/29/more-new-sherlock-season-2-goodies-photos-and-premiere-qa-video

    Maybe in a dream?

    Dreams

    I've had another "new home" dream. It was so dirty inside, the vacuum cleaner's hose got completely clogged with the dust… monsters. Outside it had a makeshift thatch roof covered with plastic foil and I was wondering how it will survive the first blow of wind. But it had a big park-like garden and I thought in the fall I don't have to clean all the leaves because it's a private property. And yes, there were aliens trying to make contact with me from below the floor. But no toilet in sight. PS: no racial memory of open potties in my part of the world. But a friend had a sewage backup once, that came from above (clogged pipe below their flat) and it went all over their place as they were on vacation. They wished it was a dream.

    A blog full of Setlock pictures, some I haven't seen yet. Don't forget to look at all 4 pages. https://deareje.tumblr.com/tagged/setlock

    The WTF Thread

    In Germany they wanted wolves. But forgot to tell the wolves to keep away from humans and their cattle. And they aren't even an invasive species.

    Dreams

    What about fully exposed dirty toilets? Or no toilets at all? Today I was running around a new school looking for my class. The stupid thing was that I forgot the faces of my teacher and the pupils, so I couldn't recognize them.
  15. But it's also the title of Oliver Stone's Born on the 4th of July about Ron Kovic, who also was born on this day. A grim movie but I think it was Tom Cruise's best performance.

    "outsourced conscience" I love this!

    Again - it's different from case to case. Some invasive species can destroy whole habitats. (Rabbits in Australia coming to mind)

    Andrew Scott News

    Because we still don't have one. Interview at the Late Late Show - a year old but funny.
  19. The state of the building was really bad probably with water coming through the roof. That means all the wooden constructions, like the floors, have to be replaced. Building the whole thing anew is probably a better solution than patching the old pieces. I'm not sure if just preserving a facade would still be called preservation in Germany, but the rules vary.

    It's because the higher the humidity the less you can cool by evaporating sweat on your skin. There is so much "water" in the air, that it cannot take any more.

    I know, I know. But June in D.C. felt like an aquarium. Overheated one.

    100%? Isn't it what they call liquid air?

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    The nitpick about GO so far: you have no singing nightingales at the end of summer. They only sing in spring. Anyone watching Chernobyl?

    The WTF Thread

    If they weren't bound together there is no way they would stay in a stack even after falling from 2 meters. At work, we use to throw our paper waste through the window on the second floor into a container that stands directly under it. No stack stays together. Maybe someone was a newspaper deliverer and forgot this stack in his cellar, and after he found it, getting rid of them in someone else's garden might be a good idea.

    Dreams

    No. This happened mostly after changing the medication. What I still experience very often though, is a kind of translucent geometric patterns that seem to crossfade the whole field of view, directly after I woke up and opened my eyes. But it disappears after the first blink. I also have white points flying through my sight, like little meteors from time to time.
