Re: True Detective Season 3

It's interesting. But I can't understand what ‎Mahershala Ali‎ is mumbling most of the time, which cuts into how compelling it is. Season 1 was riveting. Season 2 was unwatchable. This season is in-between. I'm hooked, because I want to see what happened/happens. But not loving it the way I did s1.

Nobody in their right mind thinks that abortion is a good thing
It's not. It's just better than the anti-choice position.

Roe v Wade is beside the point, I think a right to an abortion is implicit in the 13th amendment.

Re: Bullet Journaling

I've been recommending Google Keep for a few months now. It's made a huge difference and it's a free, easy to use, app. I still keep a physical notebook and use Google Calendar, but organization and limitations inherent in those platforms made adding Keep a no-brainer for me. Google Keep is flippin...

Re: Looking 3 Years Younger

Facial exercises are a pretty crucial component of treatment for Parkinsons.

In addition to subjectively "looking younger", I wonder if some of these things assist with speech, and with nonverbal communication (expressions & stuff), in ways that help alleviate social isolation in the aging.

Re: tennis elbow

"Judo elbow" presented (to me) as simultaneous Tennis Elbow and Golf Elbow. Inside and out, you get it both ways! Taking ~three months off resolved it. Other things helped: forearm stretching, finger extensor work. Practicing piano for short stretches seemed beneficial, which was interesting, but I ...

Re: Athletes today are way better. Uh, nah.

Football. Size/speed/etc has improved dramatically. Basketball. Not sure. Oh hell yes on basketball. It's obscured a little bit by the central importance of skills ; there's always a place for the player who can shoot and dribble. And a lot of basketball skill is cognitive; "vision", spatial awaren...

Re: I'm obessed about learning languages

How are you going to learn to use genitive, dative, or accusative word forms if you don't know what they are and when they are appropriately used? Try and see how far you get in German, Russian, Romanian, or Hungarian. You've got a kid, right, about 9 or 10 yrs old? Did he/she start with grammar? M...

My wife & I took the 9yo to see it. It was really great. Terrific story, interesting style. We may have liked it more than the kid did. My wife loved it. She wants to see it again! She also bought the soundtrack on her iPhone (lot of hip-hop). For those wondering, it involves a crossover of a bunch ...

if you want my opinions on this, I'll tell that Duo-lingo is a beginner's App. Pimsleur is better for beginner pronunciation and speaking. So wait, are you saying that Duo-lingo is pretty good, and Pimsleur is better? Or that Duo-lino sucks and Pumsleur is decent? Basically, "What works?" is what I...
