Re: Decent car YouTubes

I've found myself watching way more content from Shmee that can possibly be healthy for me. Enjoyed his recent one with Jay Leno. And also the various Magnus Walker videos - although after watching every one, I go looking for the price of a 911 from the late 70s.. early 80s... late 80s.. early 90s.....

Re: The Movie Thread

I just started watching Breaking Bad yesterday. :oops: Don't worry. It's overrated. Some of it is superb but quite a lot is dull. Not in the same league as The Soprano's, Gomorra, Chernobyl etc. You're right, it is in a different league, just slightly above all of those. Although Chernobyl runs it ...

Re: Sub 2 hour Marathon...

So, how many factors were they able to influence on the day to get that time? They only ran in perfect weather conditions. On a pancake flat, lapped course with very few bends. Multiple pace setters who also allowed the runner to be drafted all the way. Plus the drafting from the car. The new Nike s...

Re: The Movie Thread

Watched El Camino last night and it was really good, a nice epilogue to Breaking Bad. Just makes me want to re-watch the series again. Woke up this morning to see that Robert Forster has died at 78. I thought he was amazing in Jackie Brown and latterly he was in Twin Peaks and obviously Breaking Bad...

Re: Sub 2 hour Marathon...

And he's done it! Its amazing what all these marginal gains can do when you're at that elite level, but also just how many considerations you need to put in place to be able to shave off those vital seconds and effectively get around the limitations of the human body.

Re: Decent Recent TV

I'm going to rewatch Mr Robot from the start as I've no idea what's happened in the past series' other than the really big plot points. I see its being released weekly so that works out fine.

Must watch Ash v The Evil Dead, its been on the to-watch list for a while now.

The Capture on the beeb is quite good. All about CCTV and deep fakes, six episodes, one left to air. And Ron Perlman is in it.

I’m a massive wuss and opted for full sedation. Very glad I did. I don’t remember a single thing from the actual op and it took a whole day for the drugs to wear off. Perfect.
Dentists give me the fear, so I'm slightly comforted to hear you can get full sedation - what's the criteria for that?!

Re: Apple Arcade

The games they've demo'd so far look pretty good. I'm definitely what you'd call a "casual" gamer these days so this service is appealing to just pick up and play, with progress saved on any device. And a free year with any Apple device? Will check it out when it lands properly. I don’t think Apple...

Re: Baby monitors

Another vote for the BT Digital one which is audio only. You need to do whatever you need to do to feel happy about things, but I can't begin to imagine having anything other than audio - I think I'd end up sleeping even less than I did. If you have a second child though, they're pretty much left to...

Re: New iPhones

I don't think it matters about chargers and charging habits anymore. In fact, does iOS 13 not learn your charging habits and adapt accordingly to prolong battery life - i.e. if its plugged in all night, it will charge to 80% then stop charging and finish off just in time for your normal wakeup time?

Re: Decent Recent TV

Cheers Zed... No I haven't seen Breaking Bad... Stop everything you're doing and watch Breaking Bad. I think its my favourite TV series ever and stands up well to repeated viewings. If you have time on your hands, listen to the accompanying podcast as its amazing to hear how they came up with stuff...
