Congratulations Jubal.

But we'll catch up.
Yes, we will, my precious. We will.

Also, today we had the sad news that Sir Patrick Moore died, one of Britain's greatest modern eccentrics (a monocle wearing astronomer who played the xylophone, put it that way).

Weird.
Works fine for me.

It's a picture for "The god in the bowl".

Are you sure? It looks remarkably like a white box with a red cross through it to me.

It's appalling, and there've just been so many mass shootings these last couple of years, it does seem to be on the rise (possibly a recession/depression effect?)

I don't think any of them have been finance related.

In other news I saw The Hobbit tonight. It was good, but Pete should have toned it back by about 50%. Just a little over the top most of the time, like it was missing all the things about LOTR that made it awesome. Pete should have made it like we had never seen Middle Earth before, with drops and splashes at a time, instead of just dumping the bucket on us.
Watching TFOTR on television right now and suddenly it hit me that what The Hobbit is missing is a "Samwise" element; an aspect of realism/a real-world quality.

Edit: Oh and the orcs should have remained like they were in LOTR. Other changes also seemed a little severe in comparison to LOTR, which I will not go into detail here as to avoid spoilers, but let me just say coughradagastandazogcough.

Edit 2: It was AWESOME!!! ;D

Oooh that's a burn. :P

CG, I have to ask with regards to the Hobbit, at which point did it end? How have they decided to cut the story?
