  1. Be careful. I just wish I knew how to pronounce that. I've seen weathermen do it several different ways,
  2. She WAS into pioneer days stories, when wet nurses, as they were called, were more common. Getting someone else to feed your kids used to be the norm before there was formula. It was more common with royalty and the well off, than with the lower classes, but certainly happened a lot. Poorer people were often hired to do it.
  3. My son sent me this. I had never seen it. I thought it was interesting. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/the-big-bang-theory-mayim-bialik-amy-fowler-episodes-cbs-a9548466.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR3u8WM2RRTrzFGAIllK-z-EDa_wJf723hDi9eQIpRAe-G8L3s1lm18KhiM#Echobox=1591269760
  4. I'm 64, too. I just love history. It has given me most of my friends and visiting historical sites has given me some of my most enjoyable adventures.
  5. This is kind of fun. https://www.ign.com/articles/scientists-discover-evidence-of-parallel-universe-where-time-runs-backward?fbclid=IwAR21lquJw4go_t6svR8GhBsLUKprxZ7ip_RQeYhtl3IyUTg_iN9JCeu7B0Y
  6. I have friends in Michigan where the two dams broke. It is VERY bad there. They may lose their whole water supply in Midland. One of them sent me this.
  7. That is a very good point! One of Churchill's most famous speeches, though, to Congress, is the one where he said if he'd had an American father and a British mother, instead of the other way around, he might have gotten there on his own. But even people in the United States are deplorably bad at times about their own history, never mind anyone else. As a historian it bothers me a lot.
  8. I don't think they would have done that at that time. God knows there were enough people besides Weinstein doing the same things for years and years anyway. But the writers must have thought it was funny, as it went perfectly well with a lot of the other slut jokes they came up with from start to almost finish. There were so many over the years. I still say this is what they wanted to do. If they didn't want to do it they wouldn't have done it and WOULD have stopped. They didn't so I don't think they saw it as character assassination. They had to have been getting off on in somehow.
  9. The writers loved those jokes, just like they loved the fat jokes about Howard's mom.
  10. I think anything virus related could tie into science. But I don't really care either way. I was just responding to ajond. If I had Netflix, I think I would certainly tune into Jim Parson in Ryan Murphy's new show, Hollywood, if that's more on topic. I've heard a lot about it and I've seen a lot of pictures of him in the 40's suits with the wide lapels and the pocket squares. It was mentioned in last week's Parade magazine and there's an article here: https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a32026813/big-bang-theory-jim-parsons-new-show-hollywood-netflix/
  11. I debated whether or not it should fall under science in the news. What do the rest of you think?
  12. Hundreds of idiots at a house party in nearby Chicago this weekend. https://news.wttw.com/2020/04/26/video-house-party-during-covid-19-crisis-draws-international-ire
  13. Oh, I don't either. Here in my subdivision they put police tape around play lots and people were lifting the tape to let the kids play on the equipment and taking pictures of it and posting them. I didn't know there were so many idiots round here. Many stores in Indiana are doing a good job, requiring masks and limiting the number of people going in, but people are just being idiots. I'm not sure how much help gloves are. People are wearing them all day long going in and out of stores touching things, driving around in them and then at the end of the day throwing them down in the parking lots. I told a friend of mine if people don't understand the seriousness of this and they get it and die I won't feel sorry for them. She chewed me out talking about who they will spread it to. I used to say that, too, but now my idiot friends and relatives who are blowing this off can just stay the hell away from me. I don't want them in my house and I am giving everyone outside when I have to go, which is maybe once a week a wide berth. This guy isn't just a joke. He's all too real where I am. https://www.gif-vif.com/gifs/True-story-160/?fbrefresh=23&fbclid=IwAR17LHAN1VUqJCDSYOPSJWwE2qyDFfzS-4CiKo3ffaMDpuj-Gm2h7_DOJ5I
  14. So much is being cancelled and some of it WAY in advance. I was thinking of going to a convention in Orlando in October that just got cancelled. I'm in Indiana and the word is we may start to open May 4th but we are closer to Chicago than Indianapolis, so that makes me worry. I agree that some things might be able to open. I have a friend desperate for their knee replacement and all non-emergency surgeries have been cancelled, but I can't understand states that are opening weird stuff like some of the things a friend of mine in Georgia is telling me about. (Picture is from her.) Is there no middle ground?
  15. I don't think we will get a reunion or a spin off. If we do get a reunion I think it will be a long way down the road. I haven't watched TBBT since the finale and I can't stand Friends. I've never been able to finish a whole episode. I was watching the Good Doctor but this season was NOT good to me and I loathed the season ending episode. I've been watching a lot of movies since I've been stuck in the house. Last week I watched The Queen, The Imitation Game, The Lion in Winter (with Katharine Hepburn...it's the only version I will watch) Hidden Figures, Argo and the Anne Frank movie with Ben Kingsley as Otto.
  16. I would never have let Sheldon and Penny become close friends. They were much funnier when they were sniping at each other. I didn't think they worked as close friends.
  17. For anyone who hasn't seen it on facebook, this clip of Sir Ian McKellen giving acting tips is amazing.
  18. That WAS Kaley on the YS episode and I missed it! I'll have to look that one up. This is what Molaro said about it: Confirming that she played a taunting voice in a swimming pool, co-creator Steve Molaro revealed: “I needed someone to do the voice. I knew I wanted it to be female and kinda sexy, and I said, ‘Well, duh! Kaley is perfect for this.'” He added of his original pitch: “I said, ‘Hey, I have a weird pitch for you – Sheldon has a nightmare, and he has to go to this pool, and he speaks to the pool water. Do you want to be the voice of pool water?’ “She just laughed and said, ‘Absolutely, I do’.”
  19. Penny had said she didn't want kids. We can't just magically wish that away. It did happen. It could have been good news or bad news. How was Sheldon supposed to know?
  20. I agree. It went downhill from eight on. But I also miss JP. I can't wait for more info on the show he's doing with Mayim.
  21. Season six was the best season of all for everyone. It had the best ensemble episodes.
  22. I think Mayim's new haircut is cute. And my family has always been hugely into Legos. https://www.kveller.com/mayim-bialik-is-smashing-as-a-lego-masters-guest-judge/
  23. I never watched it until this week. I heard about the live action episode and decided to watch it. It had a few funny moments. But since I didn't know what was going on I wasn't attuned to it all.
