  1. It was founded almost 900 years ago, but rebuilt in the 18th century: https://www.britannica.com/topic/Saint-Bartholomews-Hospital .
  2. Since Carol said I was free to make one, here goes . So here's that cute Puppy Love Superbowl commercial again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQB7QRyF4p4 Feel free to fill this thread with all kinds of animal adorableness - your own pets are, of course, the most adorable of them all .
  3. Why assume the cat stole the sausage, anyway? One look from those big pleading eyes was probably all it took.

    Star Wars

    In other news, Benedict Cumberbatch wasn't just being evasive when he said he's not in the new Star Wars film, he really isn't.
  5. That's St. Stephen's, and it's one of our biggest tourist attractions (still a surprisingly nice and quiet spot in the hustle and bustle of the inner city, though).
  6. The big white buildings are a hospital. The red roofs are just red ceramic roof tiles, they're still widely in use here (and in much of Europe, afaik). Here's a pic of our city centre: Obligatory "still on topic" pic:

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    As for how I did it, wouldn't you like to know? Seriously, I went into the "hidden posts" area of the mod section, found one of yours that wouldn't be missed (it was simply stating you don't use Tapatalk, and hidden because the discussion became redundant since the initial problem was solved by Tim), deleted its contents then moved it in here. And yes, since it was older than anything toilet-paper-related, the thread then took it as the first post.

    The great toilet-paper debate!

    I've done a bit of mod trickery and now the thread is Carol's (also quite old, but that was the best I could do, sorry). Just please edit something into your opening post, @Carol the Dabbler.
  9. Why only cling to one interpretation of what was shown on screen, though? Sounds boo-ring to me. Besides, if the field of literary criticism was so narrow-minded it would have died out a long time ago. If there can be a dozen different interpretations of Hamlet, then why not of Sherlock, or indeed of Holmes at large? As there are, in fact, think of The Seven-Per-Cent Solution for instance (the book by Nicholas Meyer, I mean) and its Moriarty. And in the spirit of diversity, why not combine your theories and make everything after Reichenbach be Sherlock's dream, because he came down a bit faster than his hasty calculations' results suggested and hit too hard and now lies in a private hospital (organized by and his location and identity hidden by Mycroft, natch) with a concussion? Would certainly explain a thing or two about the later seasons.
  10. I found this nice aerial shot of our neighbourhood online. Our house is in that pic (and at that distance, you can't see what a mess the garden is) . Required "still on topic" doggie pic:

    Recently watched movies

    A quick google search turned up this: https://www.cineplex.de/film/apocalypse-now-final-cut/364533/mannheim/ , which states that the show date is mid-July, so cinemas in your area might not have started ticket presales yet (ours usually only do about two weeks in advance).

    What song is stuck in your head?

    Husband and I were at the Phil Collins concert yesterday, which was fantastic, only now I've got Follow You Follow Me stuck on repeat in my head.

    What song is stuck in your head?

    And because sharing is caring, you want us to suffer along with you, right? Well mission accomplished, but at least it's a nice song.

    How Did You Find Us?

    Procrastination is such a harsh word ... Anyway, welcome! Glad you found us.

    But with 'under', you can't do origami.
  17. Well I can't speak about coyotes, eagles and similarly impressive wildlife, but I live at the western edge of Vienna, and the Vienna Woods are like five minutes from here, so we do get our share of wild animals wandering into the suburbs.
  18. Fwiw, there have never been any fox/dog incidents round here, but there have been several altercations of the fox/cat variety. Probably because dogs tend to remain in their own garden (which are fenced round here) unless they're accompanied by humans (in which case it's very hard to even get to see a fox, those round here are terribly shy), while cats roam and can't be avoided that easily.

    Game of Thrones

    Note to those not reading or watching GoT - this is purposefully misquoted from a different show (source and many more here). (Golden Girls)
  20. Well strictly speaking, we do have this lovely "Other Versions" subforum: https://www.sherlockforum.com/forum/forum/35-other-versions/ so it's not BBC only. And we've always happily welcomed any Sherlock fan, whether they prefer BBC (Johnlock or PlatonicFriends flavour), Granada, or those who think Gene Wilder was killing it as Sigerson, for that matter. It's all good.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Indeed, sorry for the confusion. I don't want to spoiler anything here, so it's a bit hard to talk about the ending, but while I obviously hope for a S5 (and signs are looking good *fingerscrossed*), the way they finished S4 works as a finale, at least for me. A sad one but it makes a sad poetic sort of sense.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Saw the last episode of S4 today. This is how you do a "bittersweet" ending, if you feel you have to. *sniffle* One that leaves your viewers full of feels and not rage.

    The scene in ep5 where Chloe talks to Amenadiel has to be the most adorable one ever.
