I do seem to have a problem with spelling that word, don't I? Razz And I'm a pretty good speller too. I guess it's just that word.

So the G7 had a meeting today in Italy.
I don't get why we still do these meetings. Nothing gets done and the only thing that comes as a result is that anarchists trash cites to protest...something. I still remember how when Canada hosted a G7 meeting back in 2009 or 2010 how anarchists did $1 billion dollars worth of damages.

I followed the link, excited as you would expect, and what struck me is that the ones in the photos had very obvious Zebra qualities to them. I know that's part of the selective breeding process, but they don't resemble the Quaggas seen in black & white photos or paintings. They are at best a reasonable facsimile of the Quagga, rather than the real animal brought back.

Five generations of successful breeding has accomplished just that — herds of animals with very similar characteristics to the original Quagga, including limited striping and darkening brown background color.

In other words, another hyperbole sensationalist article, just like the one on that same site about "alien DNA" supposedly in octopus. Yeah right, clickbaiting anyone? What a load of rubbish :gun1:

yeah, this "revived quagga" i'd say is more in line with the Heck cattle and Heck horse--a modern facsimile rather than Jurassic Park-style cloning. it's still very interesting and i applaud them on their efforts Smile besides, if it looks like a quagga, walks like a quagga, acts like a quagga, sounds like a quagga, and fills the previously vacant ecological niche of a quagga, then who's to say it's not a quagga?

Science? tongue

There are countless number species that look and sound dead identical to layman, but that doesn't mean they actually are.

To layman, all flying reptiles are basically Pterodactyl, all large sized theropods are T-Rex, all small sized theropods are Velociraptor, all sauropods are Brontosaurus, all cats with big teeth are Saber Tooth Cats, etc etc

Keep something in mind: The Quagga was a member of the zebra family, it wouldn't be that hard to mix it's DNA and that of other zebra's to bring it back.

I don't even have to watch the video to say Spoony went far off the deep end. Used to like his content, but after his split with the site, he just kept crashing lower and lower. What baffles me is he puts out like a D&D video once a month, and a review every two or three months, and he was still getting like over a thousand dollars in Patreon support. I think it's dropped since I last looked, but the fact he's even bring in any money for basically doing nothing anymore shocks me.

EDIT: Might be a good idea to start a YouTube/videos thread. While informative, I don't know I'd qualify this as news.

I started watching him in 2008, and it was pretty good - it really peaked circa Phantasmagoria 2 - but it went heavily downhill by 2009 already. Couple of years after I'd say some of the content was still semi-watchable, especially when he had someone other to talk to, but I think I finally stopped watching the little there was in 2012. It was just a sorry state, as pathetic as with Doug Walker and the rest of CA. I don't even need to watch that vid lol

Will there be a vid of Cinemasnob revealing how everyone of those friends either fights, screws or betrays each other Laughing we already know most of it of course but still

Nowadays of these 'critics' I only watch RLM, their brilliance outshines all the rest.

Can't agree with a single word with that, but I won't try to change your opinion.

Anyhow, although I don't particularly like their sister channel Pre-Rec, you get glimpse of how honest they actually are when Jay occasionally joins Rich and Jack for a very informal and unscripted chat + Q&A in those Pre-Rec Twitch streams. Josh is also there like once a year but never Mike (not since Jessi vanished anyway)

I really fund RLM extremely grating and one note nowadays. I used to enjoy their Star Wars, Star Trek and Indiana Jones reviews, but even then that's a brand of humour I'm not exactly used to and only took it for (some of) the films they reviewed because I had similar views, especially on the SW Prequels. So the word "brilliance" is frankly stretching it, in my view, if I want an insightful critic and reviewer I'd defer to the late Roger Ebert, Mark Kermode, or even Doug Walker.

Roger Ebert, I never really agreed with anything on, on bar with Leonard Maltin

Mark Kermode, no idea who that is

Doug Walker lol. There was a time and place where I watched him, but dear god. The funniest thing is that despite all his complaining, his own 'films' were the absolute worst things on planet, you know the crossovers like 'Kickassia'. God the writing and dialogue and directing was horrendous, makes Space Cop and Brad Jones films look like Casablanca

But again, I'm not robbing away whatever you believe.

His "films" are not exactly what I watch him for. I've seen a couple of them, and have no desire to see them again. But what I meant by that earlier statement was that he can actually be very insightful when it comes to film as an art. Obviously I don't agree with everything he says about certain films, but as a guy who likes to study movies and has seen a vast array of them he is able to demonstrate this insight in his editorial videos. And to be honest, I prefer his editorials over many of his recent reviews.

To be fair, I should point out that the United States isn't the main cause of pollution. China is. Not only that, but the EPA has been making overwhelming regulations that has been killing jobs. The last thing that is needed international treaties making things worse.

While I agree that mankind has been a factor in climate change, I don't think it's as big like many people say it is. Not only that, but I don't think that America should bear the burden of leading the world in trying to curb global warming unless China is willing to pay up just as much. If they want to be a global superpower, then they should pay just as much.

Besides, I just think we should be more focused on protecting endangered species and trying to bring back their populations back to normal. It's a far more worthy goal and something that can't be debated nearly as much.
