    The important thing to remember though is that Cassandra won't like it whatever they do.

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    I have just watched this and it is incredibly violent. But Charlize does not look out of place in it. She legitimately suffered injury because of the fight scenes. As the film is stylistically linked to John Wick the fighting and shooting is not over the top. Talking of which I also saw John Wick 2. Again very violent. And can't people take a simple no as an answer ? Keanu delivers the goods again. It is also good to see him work out that he will be betrayed and take appropriate action.. Street Fighter. First time I have seen this all the way through. It does make you miss Raul Julia. And there are plenty of throw away gags in it. Enjoyable. Sudden Death. The holding hostages for a set time or else scenario given the spin that one of them is the Vice President. And it is given a very credible reason why whatever the police try, fails to work. Worth repeated viewing for the mayhem.

    Agents Of SHIELD!

    Fans don't agree. It's the most watched Marvel show. https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/agents-of-shield-most-viewed-marvel-show

    My go-to start is Essex in 769 AD. Easy to blob a bit, with a few one- and two-province minors around, saving Wessex, Mercia, and Northumbria for afters.

    I liked Northumbria, although Wessex was much more exciting.

    I wish that argument would work for me every time I'm forced to update my computer OS. I mean, I'm elderly and contrary, dagnab it! I suppose if there was another three hundred million of me I'd have more leverage.

    Agents Of SHIELD!

    I'm very surprised by this news. I mean, every season had declining ratings, if I'm not mistaken, putting the show on the bubble every year. Why does Disney keep renewing it, even after ABC tried to cancel it? Another question I have is why doesn't Disney put this show on Disney Plus instead of on ABC? They need all the content they can scrounge for their new streaming service, and AoS seems like a better fit for that (than traditional broadcast tv).

    Yeah, Western HERO is awesome! Wasn't it also the birthplace of hipshot and the minor wounds rules? I don't recall seeing them before that.

    In other news...

    Almost certainly behind a subscriber wall, but there's a teaser article in Science giving a discussion of a paper in a different journal about the discovery of a probably rather recent (in the last 100,000 years) impact crater discovered under the ice sheet in Greenland. The crater size is 31 km in diameter ... not Chicxulub-class, but big enough to make you happy you were't nearby: The time of the impact seems not to be well established yet, and so people are being rather cagey about that; there are some interesting suggestions of the strike happening about 13,000 years ago, which would tie in with the end of the last Ice Age, the invasions of humans into the Americas, and so on, which seems to be driving most of the publicity around this discovery.

    And so my wife says to me "You haven't heard a word I said." and I thought to myself "What an odd way to begin a conversation."

    I bought the issue when it came out (I was 14), without noticing the absence of the CC approval logo on the cover. It was only a couple of months later, reading the letters in the back of a subsequent issue, that I noticed the hoo-rah and went back and confirmed that yes, I had overlooked the difference. Didn't bother me when I first got the comic, didn't bother me later. Not long after that we moved back to the States (we had been at a US base in Germany), and we just didn't buy comics when we were in the US, I think because the Army PX's had a very limited selection of books available so going back to the US meant we had a much broader selection of reading material available, far beyond what the Stars & Stripes newsstand carried.
