That's the nice thing with this thread. It is designed so that it can only get worse, never better.

I suppose it's getting worse. ;)

I also think that a Trump will run, but it is going to be a very short run, either utterly embarrassing or utterly forgettable. He won't get half as far as Larry Elder, not even a quarter.

The latest Bond movie is not bad. It's about as good as Casino Royale (the first Daniel Craig entry) in my opinion. Some complain that the villain in the latest Bond movie was not very menacing, but I'd say the same about Casino Royale. Besides, despite the latest movie being longer, its storyline was tighter than in Casino Royale, so it felt shorter, even though some scenes could have been shortened. Particularly the dialogue was not too smart and could have been cut here and there without any loss. But it did not fall into too many wokeness traps, for example they featured a cigar approvingly, which was nice.

I have seen all Bond movies up to Daniel Craig's first and now I have also seen Daniel Craig's last.

Finally an eink monitor available in Europe https://ereader.store/en/store/onyx-boox-mira-133-e-ink-monitor-free-shipping-eu-98.html



I prefer to buy in EU, as I lost two smaller purchases from China lately, from Alibaba and Gearbest. I would very much like to get the Dasung Paperlike monitor, but cannot as long as it's not represented in Europe.

FYI: A prediction from this humble but un-cowed American republican has it that Eric Trump (...not The Donald or Junior) will run in '24. We'll have to wait and see...?!
Yeah, we will: Interesting times!

I don't know what kind of price range you're interested in, but I recently saw this video:

I've not done any model building since I was a teenager, a very, very long time ago.  ;)

Used to enjoy it and spent many a happy hour constructing them, then painting them to try and make them look realistic. Mostly plastic model kits, but I did build one balsa wood model aircraft and that took me a long time, lot's of cutting parts for the frame. Doubt I could do it nowadays, you need good eyesight and a steady hand.

Only piece of advice I would give is take your time and don't rush it. Enjoy your new hobby.
