I saw “Stalag 17” and the “Great Escape”. In one they dig a tunnel in the other they make and launch an airplane. The book about the “Great Escape” was good too. The movie “Chicken Run” uses images and themes from these movies. I liked Hogan Hero’s as a kid. There was a lot of fiction and some facts...

I have yet to see this. Fatman (2020) I like Mel Gibson films in general. FWIW Chris Kringle is not "the secret identity of Santa" but comes from the German word Christkindl, meaning Christ child, because German children believe that the baby Jesus brings presents during the Christmas sea...

If you have a pace maker controlled by your cell phone then you are a cyborg. This is another thing I don't understand. Why on earth would people have things in their bodies controlled by their phones? Surely anyone could hack in and break the equipment and probably kill you. Why do people have the...

Silly old question - comes up every so often. My favorite variation is to point that there are more deaths in White Christmas (1954) off screen than in Die Hard. It is a Christmas movie, (by some definitions) and I will not be watching it with my family. If you are looking for Christmas movies that ...

I don't think you want to find a job. For what it's worth. If you did you'd be looking for one. Unemployment is not a state of affairs which lends itself to sitting on your arse unless you are OK with being unemployed. Thanks for your feedback. Assuming that I accept your assessment, the next quest...

If you have a pace maker controlled by your cell phone then you are a cyborg. If you have a robotic limb prosthetic, and it replaces your "original part" you are a cyborg. So - yah some people today may already be cyborgs bot not most of us. Just owning a cell phone doesn't count. Having a...

So I was out last Saturday at my local bar. I was talking to this guy I knew about an attractive girl I used to know and when I showed him a Facebook photo of her he cringed and was like “Uhhhhhh god”. So from his point of view why was that embarrassing thing I did? I just showed him a Facebook pic...

This is the Roche solver I tweaked a few years ago: RocheSudoku I had to add a guess of 7 in the lower left corner for it to work. I started looking at this. It took me a few tries to figure out how to use it. I will make some usage notes here and then go back and look at the code. Thank you for yo...

People at bars drink alcohol. People who drink alcohol sometimes behave oddly or have low barriers to expressing emotions. He might have been more polite if he weren’t drinking. Was this person a friend or a stranger? May simply have wanted less intimacy than to discuss your love life with you, or w...
