It helps once you realize they are video animations.  but I'm impressed by all the micro level physics they get in there - height of curbs, vehicle suspension, etc.

Hello! Gordon's pizza?
- No sir it's Google's pizza.
- So it's a wrong number? Sorry
- No sir, Google bought it.
- OK. Take my order please
- Well sir, you want the usual?
- The usual? You know me?
- According to our caller ID data sheet, in the last 12 times, you ordered pizzawith cheeses, sausage, thick crust.
- OK! This is it ...
- May I suggest to you this time ricotta, arugula with dry tomato.?
- What? I hate vegetables.
- Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
- How do you know?
- We crossed the number of your fixed line with your name, through the subscribers guide.
We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.
- Okay, but I do not want this pizza!,I already take medicine ...
-Excuse me, but you have not taken the medicine regularly, from our commercial database, 4 months ago, you only purchased a box with 30 cholesterol tablets at Drugsale Network.
- I bought more from another drugstore.
- It's not showing on your credit card statement
- I paid in cash
- But you did not withdraw that much cash according to your bank statement
- I have have other source of cash
- This is not showing as per you last Tax form unless you bought them from undeclared income source.
-WHAT THE HELL?
- I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the intention of helping you.
- Enough! I'm sick of google, facebook, twitter, WhatsApp. I'm going to an Island without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone line and no one to watch me or spy on me
- I understand sir but you need to renew your passport first as it has expired 5 weeks ago

Is this a glimpse of the future ? We are being monitored so much & details are kept about us. Theres street cameras & shop cameras & stories of Google intrusions. Companies that can intercept your details & goings on in your daily life. ( tho it does read like a discussion between Rimmer & Kryton Smile Smile )

This is why I have such an aversion to facebook and also google products. I once took some ridiculous little quiz not connected to anything else, and facebook immediately notified all of my "friends" how I had scored on it. Infuriated me. Yes, you can go in and turn it off, but it was ON by default. So I deeply despise facebook. And google isn't much better.

First manned space mission leaving US soil since the shuttle in about 2 hours.

If you are in the UK and have clear skies, look west at around 21.50. Should look like an ISS pass (which incidently is around 21.20 tonight and will come from the west too).

The Party Tree is dead. For the last 15 years near my home the Party tree has stood tall and beautiful, you could see it for miles, it was green and lovely, and this year it suddenly died. It is all brown and crows settle in its branches and caw! caw!, as if to mourn it's passing.  Something of the magic of the place died with the tree.

Looks healthy enough in that photo, what could have killed it so quickly?

I have no idea, it was healthy last year, it is bizarre. No what can kill a massive tree so quickly? insects would take years, and I think poisoning would take years too, maybe it was hit by something? Shrugging

I don't know what species it is, if it is Elm maybe it got Dutch Elm disease or something.

btw, if you get the general google app on your cellphone, you need merely take a picture of the leaves and it will identify it for you. The leaves are gone now, but if you know another tree is the same you can try it.

I don't have a cellphone. Embarassed  I will do it the old-fashioned way and find a leaf on the ground and use a book.

Oh, when you took that video of your walk around the neighborhood I assumed you used a cellphone.

I used a tablet, and I also used a small camera with a video option. I have a cell phone, but not a smart phone. The quality of the images recorded on the tablet is rubbish. I might buy a better one. I have resisted buying a smart phone, but they are very useful I guess.

{{{ OOh thats a beautiful edition. Some of the first paperbacks of LotR's I read had similar covers, must have been similar time frame for publishing, but never seen the hardback single volume version of it. Lovely. }}
