^lmao

In my experience you start with Perry Mason and Matlock then move towards Murder she Wrote and Poirot.  That’s the hard stuff.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

The new Perry Mason show was very good, but nothing like the original.

The RIAA complained about youtube-dl (not surprising), github took them down immediately (somewhat surprising).
I hope github will get at least a bloody nose out of this.
Meanwhile, I wonder if youtube-dl devs thought about this possibility in time and mirrored their git repos to elsewhere...
Downloads still work as usual.

Unpopular opinion. Although it may be faithful to the novels, I do not like the David Suchet portrayal of Poirot. It's way to prissy for me. I'm sure it's because I saw "Murder On The Orient Express" (1974) at a too-young age and it scarred me for life, but Albert Finney is just exceptional as Poirot, and the movie is great.

Exceptional? I consider this as movie acting on the highest level, Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs and Val Kilmer in Tombstone. This is... astonishing acting. His all-star cast can't keep up in a lot of scenes. And the music is scary as hell.

I hoped this link works, it's the best of the three...

Anyway, I recommend this movie.

-edit- Astonishing isn't quite the right word. His performance is riveting.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

^ thanks for sharing.
Of course I am aware of the larger issue at hand.
But so specifically targeted at Uyghurs!
And more disconcerting information about using online images, with or without consent, on such a large scale for such dubious "research".
Another good counter-argument when people try to shrug it all off with "but I have nothing to hide".

And as always, scientists crying crocodile tears when their "purely scientific" research is being "abused" ... I can imagine Chinese suits with bags full of money running around the USA promising good pay for this sort of "research" ...

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

That's nothing. Someone's trying to generate steak from human DNA...

https://www.techtimes.com/articles/2543 … balism.htm

All the sources I have for this are trash, so take it with a grain of salt. Get it? Salted human steak.

The Ouroboros Steak can be grown from the cells that are scraped from the inside of your cheeks, but the ones that are on display are made from tissues bought from the American Tissue Culture Collection, then it is fed with a serum that is made from old donated blood--growing without requiring FBS.

Yummy. Grill time and temperature, if you'd be so kind. I'll choose the wine.
