  1. I actually made a Flat Earther leave a conversation on FB all butt hurt! He even blocked notifications from me on the thread!!!

      Gotta be done.  Hopefully the flat-earther will have a sudden dawning recognition that they have been wrong all this time

  2. Nice cover photo Imatfaal!!!

      Thanks.  It is a view from Barf - a fell in England's Lake District; which we are all very fond of but is tiny when compared to the lakes of most of the world.  It is home to England's Highest Peak Scafell Pike at a towering 978m  which again shows how England tends to be on a smaller scale than most of our neighbours and even more so compared to other places on other continents

  3. i noticed you get desktop notifications, if you are not on the same tab as the forum, and a sound.

      It is a major change.  They still haven't incorporated my feature wish list - including remote electro-shock accompanying negative reputation but beggars  can't be choosers

      That is why - I believe - it has to ask for positive permission to do so.  Not a great fan of the new notifications - but waiting to see if they grow on me

  7. Anyone here watched Grave of Fireflies? Just watched it for the second time: forgot just how brilliant and completely devastating that film is. Studio Ghibli is several orders of magnitude better than Disney.

      irresponsible uncle is a tautology! I remember buying a DVD for a niece with a very wrong conception of the film. And having to phone my brother and ask him to go and confiscate the DVD before niece watched it. The problem with Ghibli is that it is so well done - sadness, loss, and tragedy are not transitory story-lines like they would be in Disney; they are real and affecting

  8. I've reached this strange point in my life - and I'm not quite certain whether it's a point more people reach, or a psychiatric problem - where I tempt to memorise as much as possible from any damn text I'm reading. And it's driving me crazy.

      Nurse! Nurse! We have another one here. Take notes, compress, summarise, and condense; learn the final "essence". Although in Medicine (from my memory of my couple of years of it) just memorizing stuff is pretty much par for the course - just make sure you avoid looking for clinical diagnostic points when reading the newspaper

      Neonatal GE was my brothers speciality. And on the abdo surgery - I agree; you have always come across as far too normal and friendly to be a surgeon. In UK surgeons do not exactly have a reputation for humility :)

      I don't even think of them doing the same thing - Disney is so inferior

      F*~@ing DUP holding strings of lame Tory Govt. The DUP are the most regressive party in the UK - their views on gender, sexual orientation, equality, and freedom of the individual are some of the most right-wing of any parliamentarians in Europe.

  18. On a side note, I'm finally moved into my new home, and my internet speeds are a blazing 386 Mbps down / 36 Mbps up. I know it's not the 1 Gbps that a few lucky people get, but it's the fasted available in my area :P

      Glad you are up and about - I presume the surgery went well. Are you still convalescing?

      No idea what IIT is - but congratulations on the excellent results - my Dad would have said "what happened to the other 4.4% percentage? Are you slipping?" But it would only be ever said in jest and followed by more hearty congratulations. So well done - be proud

  20. Principal thinks I cheated on my exam because the system says I finished too quickly and got too many answers right. So I have to take it again, under supervision. I better get extra points for this.

      It is an interesting thought experiment to find a book which is a disappointment compared to the Movie/TV series
