What are you watching?

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

It is with some embarrassment that I must confess I've been on YouTube the past few days watching episodes of "Dobie Gillis".

I feel.... shame....

Greg
I did that a couple of months ago.

How old are you Greg? Only us really old guy get to wax nostalgic over Thalia and Zelda, mostly Thalia

I'll be 65 next month. Zelda DID have a certain charm, but Thalia was hawt....

I feel.... much shame....

Greg

Me too
I just looked at the imbd. I must have been watching at 13. That's shameful.
What's even worse, at the time Tuesday Weld started on the show, she was 15.

Jaysus....

So much shame.... I'm feeling....

America Before Columbus
National Geographic Channel

Scientific evidence shows that when Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living in the New World. Over the next 100 years, entire civilizations were wiped out when ships came over with plants, animals and disease.
I'll watch, but first I have to get through a first hand account of Cortez and gang. I'm struggling.

You got 12 out of 20 correct!
You did better than 19% of participants.
I'm surprised that I did that well, it's been decades.

Solstice Sunrise at Stonehenge
10:30p or so Eastern; 7:30p Pacific
If you miss it, they'll have it available later, but it wouldn't be quite the same as seeing live.

Looks like there won't be any celebrants this year due to the pandemic. :(

I have lately been mostly watching my ass, which requires a mirror. I urge everyone to watch their ass in these stupid ass times.

Ah, well, I just thought that since throughout my life I've been advised by authority figures including parental, military, and civilian that "you better watch your ass" that now that I'm retired and have so much free time, I decided to follow that advice. So far I don't see anything unusual. Plus, I figured this talk about ass will prod the cat fan to make some stupid irrelevant cultist comment. I can hardly wait.

It's excellent advice. I just meant that it's easier when "your ass" is your spouse. :wave:

It was a bit of a bust. Clouds/rain. No sunrise. Basically watching a pile of rocks. :(

Nope. No sunset either. At least there was no droning voice over, "we're still waiting for a weather report from BBC to see if this cloud cover will pass. It reminds me of the sunrise 4 years ago when ... "Oh yes, John - that was a good one, but overall, there have been clouds a high percent of the time." "Are you forgetting that we're in southern England?" "Ah, here's the latest - more clouds will remain, but we're not cancelling yet..."

Early 1980s winter eclipse - all of my hippie friends back home and their elaborate ceremonies got screwed by clouds. :(

Out on the Great Plains my workover rig crewmates and I paused and were awestruck by the sight on a crystal clear day. 8-) Funny how nature worked for my circle.
