I saw Blade Runner 2049 last night. I probably should've seen the original Blade Runner first, as I found the workings of the movie's world a little hard to understand at first, but I really loved it regardless. It was visually stunning, loved the soundtrack, and it kept me glued for its almost 2 and a half hours of length! Now I'm looking forward to seeing the original and reading the Philip K. Dick story that it's based on.

I just finished binge-watching Season 1 of Netflix's original series "Travelers".
I enjoyed it very much!

So, naturally, all I'm going to talk about is the nit that bothered me.

Their "T.E.L.L."s (Time, Elevation, Latitude, and Longitude of a host's death), give the latitude and longitude in thousandths of an arc-second!
An arc-minute of latitude (anywhere) or longitude (at the Equator) is just about a nautical mile;
about 1.157 statute miles; about 6,111 feet;
about 1.185 kilometers; about 1852 meters.

An arc-second of latitude (or, at the Equator, of longitude), is a sixtieth of that;
about 101.8 feet, or about 30.86 meters.

The entire length of an average adult, stretched out to the maximum survivable stretch achievable under his/her own voluntary power, is probably about 8 to 10 feet or 2.5 to 3 meters (how wrong am I?).
I estimate that's roughly a twentieth of an arc-second (0.05" of latitude).
A hundredth of an arc-second is a bit more than one foot, or a bit less than 31 centimeters.

I don't see how one can say that a person "died" at a location more precise than that person's body-length!

It would have made more sense to me, if they'd specified the latitude and longitude to the tenth of an arc-second rather than the thousandth.

And since the T.E.L.L.s are derived from the historical, 21st-century record, I seriously doubt anyone here-and-now records people's place-of-death to the nearest inch!

Maybe elevation would need to be more precise than that, if the traveler were actually traveling physically; but the traveler is going to be using the host's body, which is already in place, so there won't be any need to avoid the jar of falling from ten feet up, and there won't be any opportunity to avoid the effort of climbing from ten feet down.

Time-of-death, OTOH, is given only to the nearest minute.
I could see a use for the traveler to know the T.o.D. to the nearest tenth-of-a-minute, or just to the nearest ten seconds.
(The objection that that's never, or only rarely, recorded to that precision in the 21st century, would still apply, however.)

Anyway; I enjoyed the show. And I think I still would be looking forward to Season 2 even if I'd known all the above before starting Season 1.

Peeling Pomelos like a pro:

The ones I get at my local 檳城 超級市場 (Binjō chōkyū shijō in horrorific Kun/On/Kaiju monstermashup misreading)
have an inward dimple instead of a domelike doohicky to slice off. I just score mine and cut 1/5 or 1/4 sections out of this big hoarking
fruit.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMpO64CSeRo

Aha! そうです。Mine are just like these! And blushy pink inside!! [:P]


I like the flavor a lot! Like a milder, more fragrant grapefruit.

I found out these, like grapefruit, are good for glycemic juggling regarding my diebeetus, so I am like, «Lemme buy one every few days», b/c it takes me about 3 days to eat one pomelo single-mouthèdly. And I usually get the smallest one I can find. There are giahugic ones 2X or 3x bigger.
He he he daikaiju sized.

Have not been disappointed.

Try one today!

Clearly, they were trying (but not succeeding) to scaffold off this classic

Surest way to get to hyperspace (or an o-gasm) during the latter 1970s.

I need to find more music like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0ORwsgf8Q8

It's a song by Cantonese singer Terence Choi. I just love the sound of it, the pentatonic scale, the flute in the background...and I'm surprised that I can read some of the characters [:D]
