    Blood & Treasure

    I can't remember the last time it worked for any TV/Movie couple. But they do insist on pulling it out and blowing the dust off it for. Every. Single. Show. How about the opposite? They're crazy about each other but every time they try to get together, there is draaama! A bomb goes off next door. The phone rings with vital news. One of them falls asleep of exhaustion. A cluieless friend comes over and won't leave. Something.

    The box contained several examples of the Iron Cross, a military medal first seen in the early 1800's, over a hundred years before the Nazi party was formed. Some of them (about half, it looks like) bore the Hakenkreuz (Swastika), added by the Nazi party in 1939. I'm assuming he destroyed them as a personal acknowledgement / celebration of the fact that he had dealt with the original owners. (Killed? Arrested?) That he saved them up and destroyed them all at once, implies that his work is now complete. Yet I didn't get the impression that he was done hunting them.

    Once he'd been outed to Gwen, I think his demise was only a matter of time.
  4. Nothing wrong with the Final Memory Challenge... except that it's a bit passé now. If TPTB want to stir things up that's OK too. As for Team Fun, I'm not a huge fan, and I like them well enough as racers. But without doubt, they are "as fake as a wedding cake."
  5. From your lips...
  6. Christie did lose a bit of her Zen in the cab. But considering the massive displays of KF we've witnessed in the past, I think she kept her cool pretty well. Alliances are an unfortunate fact of latter-day TAR that TPTB have worked hard to introduce. In-fightig and back-stabbing mixed with inter-personal draaama are deemed necessary to entertain the audience. The "U-Turn Vote" is just a Mini-Tribal Council, whose entire purpose is to set one team against another. Because we couldn't possibly enjoy a race whose outcome was decided by competent racing, and not spitefulness. Pleasantly surprised by T&K. Found Tyler positively loathsome on his first TAR appearance. This time around he was quite bearable. Surprised the Afganimals had trouble with the vault. The procedure for entering the combination is pretty much the same as for any combination safe or vault I've ever used. And not that hard to get your head around. I believe that as a team they suffer from a lack of focus. That's why the small details continually manage to trip them up.
  7. My heart was in my mouth for an hour and a half. Been quite a while since last the TAR finale gripped me so hard. I could never be sure who was going ahead. And thennnn... Colin & Christie for the win!!! < ¡ Phew ! > That taxi business in London is no joke. I remember seeing the amusing movie "The Knowledge" years ago, which made it quite plain how hard it was to get the coveted green badge of a London cab driver! And setting up that set of drums with hundreds of musicians beating your brains out with "Seven Nation Army"... The sort of icing that makes an ordinary cake very difficult to eat. Like the deafeningly loud music while trying to eat soup in Hungary in race #6 (I think?) All in all, one of the best finale episodes in a while, and one where I am pleased with the results.

    Correct. Center of Gravity is the key.

    Small Talk: The Welcome Mat

    Allow me to introduce Nina StClair I've been sent a bunch of videos and photos, but this is the one of her going home from hospital. (There is a rather cute photo of Dad introducing the family Jack Russel, but Nina is not actually very visible in it.) I have not met her in person as yet. Maybe there will be a forthcoming photo of myself holding the babe, as I may be forced to do so for the camera.

    Let me start by saying I don't particularly like Tyler. But I have to grant that he is about 100 times less noxious than on his first appearance in TAR. So it isn't like I particularly dislike him that much, either. My recent post was nothing to do with him, or any other racer. I was commenting on the attitude expressed by another poster - that a foreigner, especially a foreigner with a camera crew in tow, can go into a community in any part of the world and screw around as much as they like, and no local has any right to object. Especially if they aren't directly asked for an opinion! I thought the "I don't mean to be!" remark sorta funny and self-deprecating, but that doesn't mean that "Random Dutch Guy" isn't free to complain that their shenanigans are fouling up his day in his home town.

    Just because you are some wanna-be celebrity YouTube star asshole foreigner and you've got a camera crew following you around, doesn't mean you automatically get to behave as you like and screw with people's day with impunity. If you do shit, you deserve to get called on it, by any Random Dutch Guy, who doesn't need anybody's permission to do so. American tourists do not have any right to behave howsoever they please whenever and wherever they please and then demand that the residents of the rest of the world just grin and tolerate it. Every pair of lips in this world don't have to press themselves to American ass.

    And a new baby in the family -- my new, Great, Grand Niece, born 7 lbs. 4 oz. at approximately 6:30 PM today. See how well I timed that? No photo or name yet.

    So true! It's annoying. It's actually canon law!
