It is pretty good but just long.

I'm hooked on it.

Glad to know. Don't tell me the ending. Haha. I am still watching it.

I took a look too. It's addicting.

Jurassic Park..

I find it peculiar that the island lacks a maintenance crew.

IRL there would be at least one electrician watching the powerplant/electric fence system 24/7/365.


He/she would have turned the fences back on manually.

In real life there would be more security protocols. Have they never thought of what if the dinosaurs escaped? What would they do? How would they secure them?

Speaking of bringing dinos back, aren't the Russians planning on producing wooly mammoths and releasing them in Siberian wilds.

Mammoth burgers perhaps. I don't know.

Can Bringing Back Mammoths Help Stop Climate Change?
Scientists say creating hybrids of the extinct beasts could fix the Arctic tundra and stop greenhouse gas emissions

a group of geneticists from Harvard are hoping to change this by cloning living elephant cells that contain a small component of synthesised mammoth DNA. They claim that reintroducing such mammoth-like creatures to Arctic tundra environments could help stop the release of greenhouse gases from the ground and reduce future emissions as temperatures rise due to climate change. While this might sound like a far-fetched idea, scientists have actually been experimenting with something similar for over 20 years.

Bringing mammoth-like creatures back to the tundra could, in theory, help recreate the steppe ecosystem more widely. Because grass absorbs less sunlight than trees, this would cause the ground to absorb less heat and in turn keep the carbon pools and their greenhouse gases on ice for longer. Large numbers of the animals would also trample snow cover, stopping it from acting like insulation for the ground and allowing the permafrost to feel the effects of the bitter Arctic winters. Again, this would, in theory, keep the ground colder for longer.

It's not Star Wars anymore.

I hope this was the last Star Wars movie..

It's like an old band going on tour with no original members.

I watched Ip Man 4: The FInale. The series was inspired/based on some of Ip Man's real life events. Of course the fights were made up. The next movie will be a spinoff with Bruce Lee. He was a student of Ip Man.

When did they marry? I must have missed that. How can they rule together? Oh, I better not reveal much just in case others have not yet seen the movie. I loved Rise of Skywalker. Woohoo! Lando Calrissian was AWESOME! Han solo too!

I still want to see the Mandelorian.

I never saw it, but I assume it was in Cantonese with some English and with English subtitles.
