    If you were born between 1925 and 1955

    "Lead is most dangerous to children, especially those under six. Nearly one half of a million children living in the United States have levels of lead in their blood that exceed ten micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, a level at which adverse health effects are known to occur. Lead poisoning can affect virtually every body system; it can damage a child's central nervous system, kidneys, and reproductive system. At high levels, lead can cause coma, convulsions, and death. Even low levels of lead in young children's blood can be harmful and can result in decreased intelligence, impaired neurobehavioral development, decreased stature and growth, and impaired hearing. Because childhood lead poisoning often has no distinctive clinical symptoms, it can go unrecognized. The most significant sources of lead exposure for U.S. children are deteriorated lead-based paint and dust contaminated with lead." https://www.cdc.gov/healthcommunication/toolstemplates/entertainmented/tips/LeadPoisoningChildren.html

    The mortality rate of kids is half what it used to be. That is wonderful. While corporations are constantly coming up with new ways to poison us, lead is nasty, nasty, sh*t, and easily causes permanent damage to the brain. Not really something to joke about. When I was in Jr High, the teach picked the class wiseguy off the ground, slammed him into a cinderblock wall, knocking him out. Generations are also quite different. That mixes up the Depression era kids with the Boomers. They were vastly different.

    District 9

    It's still a lame movie. Having aliens land would be the biggest event in human history. Thousands of people from other countries would converge on the site. Agencies and people would donate massive amounts of money to do everything from study their language and history to help them adjust. It's a metaphor for SA's apartheid. I get that. But it simply doesn't work, SA would not be left to it's own inclinations. Far from it.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    I liked some of their work. As a piece of popular music, Bohemian Rhapsody is a genuine accomplishment. It melds classical music with popular, supporting some of the best lyrics ever to grace a popular song. Basically, they make few movies I want to see badly enough to go to a theater. We don't get many of the small budget movies that have gotten the critics worked up. In a small market, it's easy for the major studios to lock out most of the indies. Every once in a while, there's a movie like the Martian that I just love to death. But it's exceedingly rate.

    Free public transport for all

    Business stuff puts me in a coma. I literally can't focus on it. We have a friend who is very high powered in her little corner of the business world, and when she talks, it's like adults talking in a Charlie Brown show.. So, if you wouldn't mind, could you explain what that means?

    Lighter versions of Asian noodles

    I like Soba, and those cheap noodles you can get at any Asian market that are fat, and pre-cooked. Soba should be 10% buckwheat. I don't know what possesses people to make 100% buckwheat noodles.
