I was watching a SciShow video that made me worried.

The first half was a simple observation that we need more psychological research into the interpretation and use of Emoji.

The second half made me worried.

Apparently labs have been breeding / engineering mice to become more effective and aggressive hunters and killers on demand.
What the host failed to mention is if there is a way to turn these mice off.

How worried should I be?

Is this a Heinz Doofenshmirtz? A Drakken?  Or a Lex Luthor?

Been watching YouTube, oddly enough mostly TheTimTracker, DisneyFoodBlog, and SuperCarlinBrothers.  Am I heading towards another Orlando trip in the near future, or just trying to find a substitute to soothe the urge to?

Stumbled across the old TV series "The Dead Zone" on cable, and then found it's on Amazon Prime so I started watching from the start.  This has led to reading the book, and adding to the TV Tropes pages for both, and downloading the audiobook version, and now I've checked out the DVD of the movie from the library.  Sometimes I get like this.

I even looked in the library computer for a book on comas (the main character was in one for several years), but it came up with about fifty different "Fiction" categories and absolutely nothing under "Non-Fiction".  So, I found the Medical shelves and skimmed, coming up with a few books on head trauma, concussions, etc.  I even looked on amazon for books, and am semi-seriously considering buying a textbook on the subject.  As I said, sometimes I get like this.

Anyway, so much for my plan to binge Stranger Things and find out what all the fuss is about, for a while anyway. ;-)

Watched this happen this morning without even knowing what I was seeing

Because of the launch time, the lift off was in darkness but the contrail and booster separation was fully sunlit on a black sky.  Quite a dramatic sight from the Gulf Coast.

Whilst browsing the Ewe Toob, I came across an early Muppet appearance on Ed Sullivan.  Back when Cookie Monster was constructed with Teeth.

Henson, Oz, et al reused a LOT of material in the first few seasons of the Muppet Show that they had previously performed on Ed Sullivan, Jimmy Dean, The Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live, Sesame Street, and a whole lot of variety shows, talk shows, and specials.  Yet some how it seemed "Fresh" then and is still entertaining.

Meanwhile, most of what is on television today is tiresome before I even see it.

I've been watching the original Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons on DVD

I am now hearing Grace with the June Foray voice, and I don't mean Natasha

Has Grace ever said "Hokey Smokes" in canon?

Grace is a more interesting character than Rocky ever was. He was a kind of bland know it all. In the whole show, he maybe beat out Sherman, Nell, and Dudley's horse.

Bullwinkle was the true star, evidenced that much later, it was renamed to be his show. Elliot would be Bullwinkle, even to the personality. Elliot is a bit sharper, but he's not Einstein. (Just read an article, apparently neither was Einstein.)

I'd rate Boris second, and either Natasha or Peabody third.

But June Foray was amazing.

I got curious, so i looked it up. You're just south of St. Petersburg. I have an ex-sister in law that lived in Tampa and Clearwater for a while. Her current husband is from there. I've never been quite as far south as you are.

July 30th, "Lochdown" the Grand Tour Scotland.  Need to block out some time to watch the Grand Tour back catalog during the week running up to that.

Actually not really sure about the date. Source vary on it. Need to watch the back catalog any way. Might do that instead of re-re-re-watching Mythbusters.
