  1. Okay, two days ago while going to bed the last thing I've heard was Wellerman. It stuck so hard, that I heard it in my head after switching off the radio. I checked all the playing devices, because it seemed some of them still play the tune just on the theshold of audibility. Finally, I put on the radio again to exorcise it from my mind. That was a bit scary. Don't listen Wellerman while going to bed.
  2. You probably never had the flu because you got the shot each year. I wasn't that much at risk, having only few contacts at work and privately. But the numbers from 2018really got me thinking differently. It might turn out to be a good thing: people comparing covid with flu - the later could get more attention in the future. What we know now is that distancing, handwashing and masks reduced flu cases almost to nothing compared with the past.
  3. Yes. This sitcom style put me off very effectively. I couldn't connect with the characters. (And I love both Vision and Paul Bettany). Maybe Marvel is just not good at series? And yes, I meant the Infinity War and Endgame. I do think it worked out well, but sometimes I was like: "how the hell can X and Y exist in one Universe?"
  4. I've got the flu jab once, and was a bit unwell after that. BUT Seeing the numbers from 2018, it might be a good idea to do it again.
  5. This guy had to be at Sherlock's over night. https://arianedevere.livejournal.com/26320.html
  6. The only kind-of continuity error I remember now, is when Sherlock walks out of his bedroom in a sheet and has the driver from the "Boomerang case" sitting in his living room. I think there was something else… I don't really count the small continuity glitches made in the production as continuity errors. BTW, if you want to see how many goofs fit into one movie you can have a look at Gladiator.
  7. It reminds the reaction you have after an infected tick bite. And it wanders! I was just: WTF? Two weeks after the jab? My arm is still kind of "bumpy", but the rash is almost gone. So far so good.
  8. I think Iron Man movies were my favorites. Because the hero has no superpowers beside his brain, and the movies were indeed kind of realistic. What irritated me in the Avengerst movies was that they had to mix not only several, quite different (imo) Universes, but als different moods. While I remember Iron Man as rather sober, Guardians are almost a kind of crazy comedy. To navigate between all those elements was a difficult thing. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier… well, it started very interesting, and I liked the themes they put into the series, but with each episode it went worse and worse. The end was unbearably pathetic and unrealistic (even for the genre).And then there was the costume… I also dindn't like Wanda Vision. Just… no.

  10. Got Moderna. 2 Weeks after the shot I've got what is called Moderna- or Covid-Arm. Wearing it like a medal Oh, and felt like hit by the bus for two days: hardly could lift my arm, and didn't sleep very well because of the pain.
  11. Not sure if curiosity is an emotion or not (I think it rather is), but this actually is spot on about my reasons for social interactions, and that's why I feel like Internet is a good place to be. Oh, I always knew, I was an alien…
  12. They all went crazy with their prices.
  13. I'm not sure. People could also care for each other because it makes sense/benefit everyone in the group and help strangers on principle. Because I don't think emotions are necessary for telling good from wrong. They may even be a hindrance. What may go missing though is the reason for wanting to be alive.
  14. There is no line I'm afraid Okay, in the recent times you can say if someone was a real person or a fictional one, but it ends with the name and some general facts. You might as well depicts someone real in fiction using a different name or use the name and make something totally fictional, let's say, like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  15. Just heard a bit in the radio that the Watergate Scandal was started (or othewise connected) to someone talking too much privately. Sadly, it was only just a brief mention and I cannot find any sources for it so far. Anybody heard about it?
  16. Hmmm… actually I might like my childhood photos better than the recent ones.
  17. Not sure about three Musketeers, but D'Artagnan was a historical figure - saw a documentary few days ago. But he too belongs to the category of possible real sources for fictional characters. Not to mention many real people find their ways into fiction under changed names and strongly altered stories - as in case of Sherlock Holmes. Or King Artur. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  18. And, unexpectedly, I found possible meaning of 1972 https://dict.leo.org/forum/viewGeneraldiscussion.php?idForum=18&idThread=1130353&lp=ende&lang=de
  19. Actually it doesn't make sense. She couldn't kill him because he had stuff on her. We need to remember EVERYONE thought the Vaults were a real place. If CAM died, Appledore could be found and opened, and many nasty secrets would come to light. There is also a very elaborate text out there about what Mary wanted to achieve breaking into CAMs office, I'll see if I can find it. That's why Sherlock wants to buy Mary's secrets from CAM with Mycroft's laptop. That's why he is so desperate as he realizes that the only way to destroy Appledore is to kill Magnusen. Mary's doings may at least partially be fueled by fear of others. Because CAM's way was to hurt your loved ones, if he wanted to hurt you - just like in Lady Smallwood's case. With a child and a husband she were a threat for them by simply loving them. (Why she didn't think about it before is another thing)
  20. In Sherlock Diogenes Club was exclusively for Diplomats Politicians and British Government. Mycroft explains this to John. They don't talk to prevent giving away state secrets by accident.
  21. If the collar is anywhere near elastic and soft, it's useless - until you are not moving at all.
