  1. Picard gets 3 more seasons The mediocrity will continue. Resistance is futile.
  2. See if this rings a bell for anyone. I remember another version of that story except the memory place not only sold memories they bought them too. If you sold the memory of an event it was gone from your head. A guy in money trouble sold a bunch of his favorite memories and then couldn’t get them back. I don’t remember if that was a story or a TV episode. It might’ve been a twilight zone episode but I’m just not sure.
  3. Wow I did not know the 1959 Charlton Heston version was a remake! I stand corrected. Sorry Amentep I thought you were talking about the 2016 one.
  4. Casino Royale yes. Although the remake was a different kind of movie. Ben Hur? No way! That’s poopy talk! Edit Yes , the Departed is another good one. Although like Gromnir said I didn’t even know it WAS a remake until some time after seeing it.
  5. I can only come up with one remake off the top of my head that was not a complete disappointment. The Cohen Brothers remake of True Grit.
  6. oh wow. That just sucks.
  7. I finally got around to watching the remake of Total Recall. The plot was nonsensical. It had none of the kitsch of the Arnold Schwarzenegger version. And it also bore little resemblance to the PKD short story. Although that’s probably for the best. But it wasn’t a terrible thing to watch. Plus it had Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel in it. And they actually had a fight scene together. That was worth the time spent by itself LOL. but I did spot two call backs to the original movie and got a chuckle out of each.
  8. Nothing at all. If you’ve got to do it you’ve got to do it. Before I got vaccinated I put the damn thing on whenever I went in the store. After I got my second shot I stopped wearing it. So now they’re suggesting we put them on again. Well my interaction with the other humans is really minimal these days. The Kroger in town has started grocery delivery which is freaking awesome. Tractor supply will do curbside pick up, order online and you don’t even have to go in. Those are about the only two brick and mortar stores I ever visit. The only time I’ve even left my house this month was to go cut the grass on my vacant lots. I was trying to be humorous. It wasn’t a comment so much on having to put the mask back on as it was not having anywhere to wear it. Edit: The post office. That is the one building I do have to go in two or three times a week. There’s no mail delivery where I live. So I have a PO Box in town. So yes when I go pick up my mail I’ll put the mask back on then. The vets office too. But not so regular.
  9. CDC says masks again vaccinated or no. Well… I am NOT going to do it. But then again I’m NOT going out in public either so it’s ok.
  10. You were spot on the money on that observation. That thousand dollars a month of UBI will be meaningless when it has a quarter of the purchasing power.
  11. If you’ve been watching the news in the United States you would be under the impression that violent crime is exploding across the country. Particularly in the big cities. Maybe it is. I couldn’t say for sure. Don’t care enough to do any research. Of course some folks are associating the rise in crime with the “defund the police” movement. Again possibly true but I don’t care enough to actually research it. But I do know a couple of stories have surface lately where certain mayors in politicians have been spending lavishly of the tax payers money on private security. All while talking the talk about defunding the police. I don’t know if they’re actually defunding the police or not, again don’t care. But this was interesting Former US senator Barbara boxer assaulted and robbed in Oakland fortunately she wasn’t hurt. But apparently even a former US senator is not safe. Hell will freeze before you ever again see me in a city larger than Covington. And as for crime, well I seriously doubt anyone’s going to go looking in the sticks for houses to break into. It’s generally accepted that is an unhealthy activity to say the very least.
  12. Study indicates Chinese made vaccine stops working after six months. Well… all I can say is if you’ve ever bought anything from Harbor Freight this will not surprise you!
  13. if you’re under 40 you don’t know what you missed!
