  • People were eating bread before agriculture and farming

    At the risk of sounding dumb, to me what was interesting was that people were eating bread before agriculture.   Somehow I thought it was the other way around.    I thought once people settled down and had agriculture, then they developed things like bread.   Perhaps had I thought about it more (or if someone had questioned that thought) it would make sense that people developed an interest in agriculture when they had a need for it ("hey, wouldn't it be better to grow wheat rather than go around searching for it all the time?).   But it's nice to have evidence that in fact people were making bread before agriculture was developed backs up that idea.
  • Top 5 Favorite Non- Bald Move Podcasts

    Anyone here a fan of "ologies" by Alie Ward?   It has BaldMove grade cussing (which I don't think it's common for a science podcast).   She interviews different scientists/doctors (like a Rhinologist to talk about noses, or a Lepidopterologist to talk about butterflies).  You may not think of listening to podcasts about trees with a Dendrologist would be interesting, but I can't get the image of trees moshing to strong winds out of my head now.

    I also listen to MarketPlace by Kai Ryssdal, Levar Burton Reads, ID10T (although I can't get myself to listen to it after last week), and Frontline (for my top 5). 
  • Stranger Things: the game

    Got to 96.5% complete.   When you collect all 6 VHS tapes in the game, you can take them to the movie theater and get a trailer for season 2 :)
  • 306 - "Certified"

    I'm impressed that they've been able to bring the same actors back to reprise their earlier roles. We haven't seen the lady with the baby in the car since the final scene of episode 1 of the entire series and I immediately recognized her.
    Yeah. Can't believe I was able to tell right away it was her too. The background to Sam's story, and how that was connected to Laurie is so well done. The departure of Sam was such an iconic event of season one (it was in the promos for the show), and to give that story more of a background and the connection to Laurie's story was so good.

    "We're all gone"... I hope that at least Jill, Tommy, and Michael make it thru ok. I'm still hopping Kevin and Nora end up together some how.

  • 306 - "Certified"

    When I watched it again... the conversations between Laurie and Nora at the cliff and Laurie and Kevin at the end felt a lot deeper. "Same time next week?" "You're on." (The expression on laurie's face...). "I'm not scared" "then I'm not scared either".

    Then Laurie leaving Kevin the lighter with "don't forget me" engraved on it.
