Just a comment on the heart monitored bomb from a medical perspective.The bomb was monitoring electrical activity of the heart. With a severe head injury, the heart would have been fibrillating - an irregular disorganised electrical activity in a heart that's dying. This disorganised activity isn't enough to trigger the heart to pump properly, but would still be recognised by any heart monitor. This rhythm would often then degrade to an agonal rhythm - a very slow electrical activity.So the slow build up and intensifying alarm actually makes perfect sense from a medical perspective and I thought they did it perfectly (albeit still a bit dramatised, as you would expect with a television show). In fact, I would have been calling bull if it had instantly exploded as that wouldn't have been realistic at all.
It would be interesting to time her leaving the box to the car dropping. If it’s 40 seconds then there’s no doubt it’s him. I Guess I’ll have to watch the scene again and time it.
We will see. But I’m definitely coming for my internet points if this gets confirmed later in the season.
The escalating beeping wasn't for the dumb people in the show; it's for the dumb people watching the show. This kind of shorthand doesn't feel insulting to my intelligence though, because to work around it would take up more show time and I don't care about explosions that much. That's not why I'm watching.But I do think it's an indictment on the show in some capacity that this is what's captured our imaginations.
No way that’s a coincidence.

I thought it was a pretty on the nose symbol for religion. When you go to church, they tell you to pray to God and that he's listening. It makes you feel better to have someone to talk to. If God does exist, he's probably not listening to everyone's prayers. If you pray to God and ask him to help you ace a test and then you ace the test, it doesn't prove God exists. It's a coincidence.One of the last things Dr. Manhattan says in the comic before he leaves Earth forever is that human affairs cannot be his concern. Why would he be listening to calls from Earth? I'm 99% sure that the phone booths are a scam. They're nothing more than telling people to pray. Gives them a higher power to talk to to make them feel better. For Laurie, it sure looks like an act of Dr. Manhattan (God), but the audience was given a very mechanical and real reason why a car is in the sky in the first place at the end of the last episode.Dr. Manhattan could literally do anything to show Laurie he was listening. Why would he drop a car in front of her? The simplest explanation of why they chose to drop a car is that we know it's not from him but she doesn't.
2. The joke Laurie gives his literally exactly what happens after she leaves the booth. So it’s just a coincidence that she makes this joke about the brick falling and it’s exactly 40 seconds?
Nice! I just learned about split diopter shots in a YT essay.
