The Real Reason Why US Adaptations Of British TV Shows Rarely Succeed
The Real Reason Why US Adaptations Of British TV Shows Rarely Succeed
"Would a series like Black Mirror — a short, intense and laser-focused jolt of a programme — be so effective if it was told over 13, 15, 20 episodes, rather than three?" -- It's an ANTHOLOGY SERIES, so probably! - Andrew C (✔)
I'd posit a simpler reason. UK TV series are populated first and foremost by real actors, who look and sound like real people. By contrast, TV in the US, for the most part, is populated by people who are selected more for their appearance than their acting ability. It's like watching a J Crew catalog in motion. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Even when they're picking top-notch people (hell even the same people, like Tennant in Gracepoint) it can still feel really off if the writers haven't been able to go in and make it their own. I thought they actually did a fair job. I mean, both casts of Coupling looked like they were catalog models, but the atmosphere in the US one never gelled. Fast forward several years, and they're re-using a lot of that formula in HIMYM, and it works... because the jokes are written for the intended audience. - Jennifer Dittrich

One downside to having a buzz cut is that my hair can't fully express how pleased I am with myself.
That's what hats are for! - Jennifer Dittrich
Guess so! - Andrew C (✔)
Was your hair sentient? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

OK, Tivo peeps, I've been a long-time Tivo lover, but I have to say I'm really, really disappointed in the Tivo Mini. Kind of thinking I need to send it back.
It's basically unable to perform it's most basic function - streaming shows from the Roamio in my media room. I've got an ethernet over powerline network rated for 500 MB/s but it can't consistently maintain a connection to the Roamio. Live TV and streaming of recorded shows are both unusable. It's basically a glorified Roku at this point, with fewer services. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
And the ethernet/MOCA requirement was not prominently featured when I ordered it. Even though I spoke to a CSR. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

The 9 Weirdest Implications Of The Many Worlds Interpretation -
Related: Is there an evil, goateed version of you somewhere in the multiverse? - 2010 Jun 29 - Victor Ganata
I'm going to cop to admitting that I still don't truly understand what's going on with Shrodinger's cat. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
That's one of the selling points of the Many Worlds Interpretation: you don't have to believe that the cat is simultaneously both dead and alive in the same universe like you do with the Copenhagen interpretation :D - Victor Ganata
Wait. There's a version where we have to believe if Copenhagen is dead or alive at the same time? - bentley
LOL, that just gave me an idea for a show: it would be like "Under The Dome" except that the dome is opaque and the trapped city would be attached to radionuclide trigger that sets off a self-destruct sequence. So if a beta particle decays, the entire city is dead but if not then the entire city survives, and no one outside the city has anyway of knowing what's happening. - Victor Ganata

@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:

even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes

"in his pursuit to create a suitable house for sparrows, ryan bruxvoort worked through multiple iterations in an effort to reach a final product called ‘affinity’. early on in the project bruxvoort set forth the following statement, which helped guide him through his design process from start to finish: ‘my goal is to create a shelter that compliments its environment while at the same time attracting sparrows to inhabit it. ultimately I wish for this to culminate into a form that shows empathy for the sparrow, in a serene, carefully crafted manner. this led to the development of a delicate, almost fragile look that has been constructed in a manner that affords tremendous structural integrity. this light yet resilient quality of the house is to be reflective of the sparrow itself.’" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Question for Twitter users - how do you feel about being retweeted? Like, Don't LIke or Don't Care?
Don't care. - Rochelle
Thanks Rochelle. I am the same way and have a friend that thinks its way important. I don't see the big deal. That's just me though and thought I'd see what others thought. - Paulette
I like it...but I don't live for it like some do. - Just another Bubba
If you're using Twitter for business, then I can see it being important - Shevonne
Yeah, I can see that would be important Shevonne! - Paulette
I don't care. - Akiva
dont care - Peter Dawson
Like. Doesn't happen much, though. - Alex Scrivener from iPhone
okwhy would any1 really care about being retwitted ? - Peter Dawson
@Peter retweets show that people are listening to what you say, and they think it's important enough to share. - Just another Bubba
Thanks Bubba! Yes Peter - its so that your tweets get seen by more people. Sort of like FOAF here. - Paulette
no the person who retweet cares enough to share,, but why would that concern me ?? does number of retweets indicates an 'ego ' measure ? remember in the blog days, it was all about link love and comments etc etc.. ego manic type thinking ? - Peter Dawson
Care deeply! :-) - Donna Lynne Brown
@Peter it's the same thing. Currency in the blog world is comments and mentions, in the Twitter world it's really retweets, not followers. - Just another Bubba
If you don't like to be retweeted, why even bother to be on Twitter? If you just use it to communicate with a few people, you're better off with email or Facebook. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I don't think anyone is saying the don't like it. They don't care which is different. - Paulette
Weren't the options like, don't like, don't care? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I don't care, personally. I mean, it rarely ever happens to me, and I don't hang out much on Twitter, anyway. - #cryptic
I don't care. - Trish R
If someone digs what I have to say enough to RT it I like it. As long as credit is given anyway. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
If I say something stupid on Twitter, I wouldn't like for it to be retweeted! LOL - Paulette
Like it if somebody likesa post and RTs but lack won't stop my posting - WarLord
I would love to be retweeted; it would show me that someone values my input. - MiniMage
Don't care unless it's an issue I think deserves attention. This would also include "issues" that might make me money. Of course, those types of tweets are quite infrequent. - Rahsheen
I've seen all kinds of tweets retweeted and sometimes I wonder why. Some are just personal stuff, that would not constitute a retweet but it does. If I am having a glass of wine and a bubble bath and tweet it, I wouldn't expect or want it to be RT'd but I've seen some of those. Just weird if you ask me. I think some people go overboard with it. - Paulette
Blast from the past! - Paulette from iPhone
For me retweet is a validation of my post As I retweet MOSTLY like and agree but some is more of a bookmark - WarLord
Me too .don't care - taluisland

Maybe I'm overly pessimistic, but any solution to antibiotic resistance is likely to be temporary, because "life—uh—finds a way."
Especially once it gets put into soap, cleaners, surfaces and every other damn thing. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I blame the frogs. - Steve C, Team Marina
That said, it's probably going to be a while before we start getting teixobactin-resistant bacteria because from what I can tell from the molecular structure, it's unlikely it will get absorbed intact through the GI tract, meaning that it must be administered intravenously, so that will probably limit how often it will be administered. - Victor Ganata
The way they discovered it is probably the bigger breakthrough: they can now grow previously unculturable bacteria and they can even more rapidly screen bioactive molecules for desired activity. - Victor Ganata
As an aside, teixobactin is also only active against Gram-positive bacteria—while it will undoubtedly be deployed for methicillin-resistant and vancomycin-resistant Staph, the greater scourge (at least in terms of ICU mortality, anecdotally speaking) are Gram-negative bacteria, which we still haven't discovered any new antibiotics for since the '90s. - Victor Ganata
We're life too. - Todd Hoff
Sure, but life is an ongoing arms race as far as multicellular organisms versus pathogenic bacteria is concerned. There is no magic bullet. There is no ultimate cure. - Victor Ganata
We're life, too, but bacteria don't have an anti-science GOP holding them back... - Spidra Webster
The anti-science sentiment in the U.S. definitely doesn't help, but from what I've been told, the biggest reason big pharma hasn't been researching new antibiotics is because antibiotics aren't profitable, even though big ag abuses massive quantities of broad spectrum antibiotics. #capitalismFTW - Victor Ganata
Well, maybe Big Ag should chip in, then. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
You would think big ag would, but since they just feed livestock antibiotics willy-nilly, they tend to use the cheaper off-patent stuff. Plus, inserting IV lines into livestock to administer newly-patented brand name antibiotics is cost prohibitive :) - Victor Ganata

Running Activity 4.04 mi - RunKeeper
Well, I didn't run the Chicago Marathon and I know have plantar fasciitis in both feet, but I met my annual mileage goal (600 miles) 6 weeks early, ran more miles than any year since my late 20s and dropped about 10lbs. So I've got that going for me. Which is nice. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

Don't Get Used To Mobile Apps — Their Days Are Very Obviously Numbered
When a linkbait site post says "very clearly" and "obviously" and "no doubt," you can anticipate a lot of doubt and enormous ambiguity on the topic. Heck, you can do that without even falling for the linkbait. (I have no horse in this race, since I have zero mobile apps downloaded to my nonexistent smartphone and/or "phablet.") - walt crawford
Funnily enough, I was kind of thinking that about Business Insider... - Zamms
Business Insider is pretty much the bottom feeder of tech biz "journalism." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Ok, so the rhetoric and the venue may not be so hot, but the idea in the story was something I hadn't considered. As a UX person, I try to keep abreast of ever shifting trends in design. This other piece turned up in my feed a short time later and does a better job of talking about the same limitations of the app model for interaction: - Stephen Francoeur
Walt, if you don't use apps and don't care about them, perhaps you are not the target audience for this piece , regardless of its quality or validity. - laura x from iPhone
Laura: I respectfully disagree. The piece was typical wild-ass generalization of the "because X is superior, therefore Y will disappear" nature. Will mobile apps decline in importance? Probably--but that wouldn't be a BusInsider story. Stephen's later link was a whole lot better. I guess I just get tired of the linkbait approach used by BusInsider, BuzzFeed, HuffPost, a bunch of other... more... - walt crawford

Some techniscenti are saying "I didn't really want a big phone but now that I have one, it's great!" Well, of course you're saying that. You spent a gazillion dollars on a big phone! What the hell else are you going to say?!
How do you fit it in your pocket? That's my question. - LB needs a break.
You buy new pants. - Jim #teamFFrank
If I can put the Nexus 7 in my back pocket (which I do, very often), I'm sure I could put the Note or the Lumia 1020 in one of my pockets. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
For me it isn't about pockets; it's about being able to hold it and do at least basic functions one-handed. My hands aren't big enough for the larger phones. - Kirsten
I suspect some of you men aren't familiar with the way pockets are done in women's clothes when there even are pockets. The hand size issue is a problem for me, too, though. - Katy S from iPhone
going by my wife's clothes, it's so rare that women's clothing even HAS pockets. what really blows my mind is when they design in FALSE pockets. that's just cruel. - Big Joe Silenced
My Note fits quite nicely in my shirt pocket, even with the case I bought for it. - Steven Perez
I was a big phone skeptic. I still wouldn't buy a huge phone, but the iPhone 6 doesn't feel as large as I thought it would because of it's thinness. I can't do the math, but I suspect that it's easier to hold than if it had the same thickness as the iPhone 4/4s. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Well for me it's about not being told what I ought to like or want. - Jim #teamFFrank from iPhone
I have some pork shoulder, cut in nice big stew chunks. I also have a bottle of hard cider. And red onion & carrots. What kind of greens would you throw in that pot? Anything else?
Salt, garlic - probably as whole peeled cloves, cumin? Also, I'd use at least one umami "cheat", whether that's fish sauce or anchovies or miso paste. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I dunno much about stewing with greens, so my instinct would be to cook em separately. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
I would use spinach or mustard greens. I like stewing with mustard greens cut into strips, the best. I sauteed or roast them first. - Anika
Potatoes! :") - Jenny H. from Android
I would love potatoes in there, but I'll be serving it with rice or noodles, that's enough carbs. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I do have fish sauce. I have spinach, but there's a few dollars to pick up something different. Mustards sound good, I really like them with pork. Should pick up a piece of garlic too, don't have any fresh in the house. Plan to season with my house mix, which is black & red pepper, garlic powder, paprika, celery seed. Fish sauce is salty, prolly won't need to add much salt. Also a lil prepared mustard, I'm out of mustard powder. Maybe a pinch of ginger... - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Another option would be to mix in fresh greens just before you serve. They'll preserve their flavor and texture and make a nice contrast with the stew. Chopped mustard, kale or bok choy. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Yes, thin greens would get thrown on top near the end of cooking, to wilt & soak up flavor but not stewed into strings :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Bok choy is kind of my go to green, I buy/cook it more than any other. It's possible I go with that again :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm making this stove top, thought about the slow cooker but nah, not this time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
