Oh yeah I see what you're saying now the Lat. So I guess I'm going to go with A.

C can’t be right.  You can’t change the terms of the contract after the fact like that.

I'm going to say C, but I am far from sure or confident.

I think the prevaling thought was while there is nothing wrong with legal nudes, they don't have much to do with science, skepticism, or the podcast to which this forum is associated with.

More or less. They didn't fit in with the Intent of the forum because n00dz don't lead to intellectually challenging discussion. "Look at the cans on that broad" isn't a reply terribly overburdened with intellectuality.

We tried numerous ways to keep them around. None of them worked to the mods' satisfaction. Plus there's plenty of free sites elsewhere to get pr0n at. We didn't need to be another one.

All of the talk about calorie counting on this week's podcast made me think of a recent article in The Economist:
https://www.economist.com/news/2019/03/16/death-of-the-calorie

It turns out that assigning a caloric value to food is highly imprecise and unscientific. If anyone thinks they can precisely monitor their caloric intake, they are mistaken. This article does a good job of debunking that approach.

That article seems to be behind a paywall, but it is just a copy of the following (which seems to be free)

Thanks!

Posting on message boards, sadly. I miss a lot of you all but I just don't have the time or the brain cycles to keep up here.

Us9/10
A very different film to Get Out for sure, and not always as amazingly enjoyable, but it is terrifying, brilliantly made, thought provoking and choc full of clues about whats happening.
I want to watch it again but will need to wait and let my nerves recover.

TV & Movies / Re: List of the Very Best TV Shows

Finished off LD&R last night.  I liked most of them very much.  A couple were meh, a couple I disliked.  But on the whole, it was a very enjoyable experience. 

I think Zima Blue may have been my favourite, with it's classic Sturgeon-ish outcome (and possibly partly because I've heard that voice actor using that voice to tell me "You must gather your party before venturing forth" about a thousand times).  I also really liked the one with the cattle farmers.

6°C colder is an ice age. 1°C colder was the Little Ice Age. So somewhere in between.

"The Dirt" 5/10

How to turn a legendary metal band into a bunch of complete pussies!

Iwan Rheon did a decent job as Mick Mars but I have no idea how accurate the character was.

The film tried to tell the story in a similar way that 24 hour party people did by breaking the 3rd wall and failed miserably.  It has a few moments of joy but not many.
