Quote from: Jimmy the Fish on October 08, 2012, 06:35:31 PM

While I don't really post in this thread, I have been reading it and staying up to date with everyone's stories.

However I did want to pop in here to say that I accomplished a momentous activity in my life. Yesterday ( Sunday), I ran my first half-marathon, which is just over 13 miles. Definitely the hardest thing I have ever tried, and was a mental battle more than anything. Five years ago, there was no way I could ever have attempted something like this. Just really excited that I am at a point in my life at 44 years old, that I am as healthy as I have ever been.

My finish time was 2 hours, 28 minutes, but really the important thing is that I survived and am still able to walk afterwards.

+ thumbsup

I actually have good news of my own as well.  I had my three-month follow-up with my neurosurgeon yesterday for my post-op evaluation.  The x-rays indicated my prosthetic has not migrated at all, my bone has fused appropriately, and my sensory locales are all functioning properly.  What does that all translate to?

Only three months after complete cervical disc replacement and I have been completely cleared to return to all activity, including strength training, competitive sports, and my beloved softball teams.  No restrictions.  Unfortunately I've lost 10 pounds of muscle since surgery, and it will be a long, hard road getting back to where I was in the weight room as well as on the softball field, but just to be able to come back with no more nerve problems or pain issues will be well worth it.

I'm back.   icon_cool

Finally watched Super 8 last night.  It was more like Stand By Me than I expected, mainly in terms of a fat kid whining and yelling throughout the film.  Unfortunately I enjoyed "The Case" short film during the credits more than the movie itself. 

Also watched Ronin after.  I had heard so many talk about the car chase in Ronin as one of the best in film.  I still have to give Bullitt my top choice, but the sound and speed in Ronin were definitely pretty cool.  The film as a whole, though, was just as slow as Bullitt with just the car chase being the primary draw.  And I just wasn't as impressed with the car chase as I had hoped I'd be.

Aha! Thanks for clarifying - That means the show isn't as dumb as I originally thought, only that I was ;-)

Not necessarily.  The fact that you're considering the biochemical ramifications of a potential electrical disruption that causes immediate shutdown of all electrical systems shows a higher level of attention to scientific details.  Take The Big Bang Theory for example.  If the show's producers just threw misapplied scientific jargon around, the show would cease to be amusing, especially for those knowledgeable, at least to some extent, about physics.  If Revolution completely disregarded biological science altogether it would be difficult for you (and probably the rest of us at GT) to suspend disbelief.  However, we fortunately kept that from happening by clarifying biochemical concentration gradients and their influence on human electrical pathways.   SCIENCE!

I have a pharmaceutical chemistry exam in about two hours, hence why my brain is melting out of my ears and onto my post.

But I think Pete's point is that it's not a binary reaction like it is with a car battery, for example.  If an EMP goes off, there may very well be long term effects (from a quick search, I found some evidence of immunological breakdown), but you won't immediately shut down.

Exactly.  It won't shut down biochemical concentration gradients.  There could be other physiological effects, but not complete electrochemical gradient disruption.

No electricity != no bioelectricity.

Did they comment on why everyone wasn't dead, when all electricity had vanished in the show?  From what I've read they want a realistic show,not a fantasy, and pretty much every living creature uses bioelectromagnetism.

Assuming the loss of electricity was due to an EMP or something similar, that wouldn't effect biological systems as bioelectromagnetism is managed through electrochemical gradients and the energy in the system is derived from biologically synthesized ATP.  If electricity vanishes in the physical world, that wouldn't impact human biochemistry.

So how you doing?

Ridiculously busy, ridiculously tired, but ridiculously proud.  Pharmacy school has been no modest challenge with 8 classes, exams/quizzes every single day of the week (quite literally), organizational responsibilities with the AzPA, APhA, NCPA, and SSHP, class president tasks, responsibilities, and additional efforts, extracurricular training (health screening, immunization, and poisons/toxics training just to name a few), student council tasks, and professional fraternity rush currently going on.  But, there is an inherent sense of pride in pursuing the profession, taking advantage of all possible activities available, earning the position of class president for the entire pharmacy class of 2016, working with other healthcare students as part of a newly-founded organization dedicated to improving interprofessional efforts, and making a noticeable mark in such a prestigious program.

My only gripe is living 100 miles from my wife and only seeing her once per month, if that.  Well, that and the inherent lack of sleep associated with a demanding curriculum and lofty goals.  Lately the three hours per night I've had time for has been far short of enough.

But, these minor sacrifices are more than worth the rewards associated with pursuing my dream position of a clinical pharmacist.  The feeling of pride couldn't have been more palpable today as our class tried on and ordered our white coats for our rotations next semester. 

We're not pharmacy students.  We're student pharmacists.

Just watched Snatch. I found Brad Pitt remarkably intelligible after being told for years that the only way to understand him would be to use subtitles, but of course, that would take away from the film.  I quite enjoyed it.

Actually, now that you've watched the film without subtitles, it's actually quite entertaining to go back and watch it again with subtitles.  There are some fantastic moments when we've jumped up and yelled, "Oh, that's what he said!"  It definitely sheds some light on some amusing scenes.

My favorite to this day is "gottahavashite."

The video in the link you posted mentions "believeinmermaids.com" at the end... going there rewards you with a big announcement that the domain has been seized by the DOJ / Homeland Security. Coverup? icon_eek

Having watched the show ( icon_redface ), I think the bigger issue is the research into tissue damage from underwater sonar.  Regardless of what the body was that washed up on shore, I believe the research being conducted demonstrated tissue damage from government/military sonar experimentation, and that was what led to the alleged cover-up moreso than the potential discovery of the existence of mermaids.

From that standpoint the show was rather interesting.  But, the drastic leaps in logic to reach the conclusion of the body found to be of mermaid origins were a bit much.

"Most"?  Drive still maintains a 93 percent positive critics review on Rottentomatoes, and a 78 from average joes.  I don't believe I've seen that many reviews stating that the second half of the film is bad or weak, let alone enough to say "most".   icon_wink  I know we had one or two vocal critics of the film on the board, but I believe they were the minority.

There was some dissent on the boards.  And within that dissent, most referred to the 2nd half of the movie as the primary source of their disappointment.  You want to nitpick semantics?  Fine, as "some" have already said...<<insert rest of review here>>.

Yet another film it's "cool" to hate on the internet?  It's far from being a top-notch film, but it falls within Cage's "better" years and while not up to the standard set by Woo in his Hong Kong filmmaking, it's not a bad translation into the American market.

I'm not sure how I could have come into the beginning of the season with lower expectations (that isn't to suggest a dismal outlook on the season, as I retain some level of optimism, but more realistic than usual), but Vick managed to disappoint even more than anticipated.  However, my defensive expectations were met and in some cases exceeded (DeMeco Ryans' addition to MLB was a fantastic pickup in the offseason).  And Shady McCoy is just ridiculous.

I expected Vick to get injured within the first few minutes of the game, but while that didn't happen in Week 1, odds are with our spotty offensive line he'll literally be killed in Week 2 by Baltimore.  If we would have played a decent team we would have been blown out of the stadium.  Hopefully almost losing to Cleveland was a wake-up call for the Philadelphia offense.  Otherwise it's going to be yet another long season.

But, we're likely to see the beginning of the Nick Foles era in Philadelphia when Vick goes down with injury, which is an exciting development here at the University of Arizona as he is not only an alum, but the first UofA grad to get a chance to play quarterback in the NFL since the 70's.  Plus he's a huge quarterback with an accurate arm and solid pocket presence.  Unfortunately our offensive line is so inconsistent that his lack of mobility could cut his inevitable NFL debut prematurely short.

Being at UofA has motivated some interest in college football for the first time in my life, and our recent upset of Oklahoma St. is making things rather exciting.  At least I have that for now if Philadelphia football goes down the toilet.  But, it's early for the NFL season and for the PAC-12 as well.

I loves me some Payback, so I guess I can overlook his love of Face/Off.   icon_wink

I can't believe I'm going to do this, but in Ceekay's alt's defense, Face/Off was pure, unadulterated, slow-motion, dual-wielding, over-stylized John Woo right smack in the middle of his wheelhouse.  And as it was prior to Nicholas Cage's slow deterioration into B-movie drivel, Travolta and Cage seemed to have pure fun in impersonating one another, not just from a character standpoint, but they seemed to mimic each other's real-life acting mannerisms as well.  It was more Cage/Travolta playing Travolta/Cage instead of Archer/Troy.

Christ, I must not be getting enough sleep to write so much in defense of a film like Face/Off, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it for what it was.

And I too am a fan of Payback.  Mel Gibson at his egocentric best.

I recently watched Haywire, Warrior, and Drive while attempting to survive the flu.  Like most have already said, Drive started off well enough but then, to paraphrase a little, "shit just got weird."  Especially the scene with the mask, as it not only seemed out of place in general, but was completely unnecessary.

I was rather disappointed with Haywire.  While it was obviously a disjointed story merely to give Carano a series of set pieces in which to kick ass, it was so badly disjointed and almost pointless that it hurt my overall enjoyment of the film.  Granted, a film like Ong-Bak had an even worse story just to progress to the next action scene, but the action more than made up for it.  I can't say the same for Haywire.

Finally, I loved Warrior.  Outside of the MMA storyline, the relationship between father and brothers almost hit a little too close to home.  Unfortunately, while we'd all like to associate with the "good guy" in a film's storyline, I related most to Tommy, both in terms of tattoos but also in terms of his relationship with brother and father.  Still, while happy endings might work in Hollywood, things don't happen that way in real life.  All in all a great film emotionally impactful, and well acted by all involved.  I think I enjoyed it more than The Fighter.
