When my brother and I were younger, we'd constantly steal my dads tools to build forts in the woods behind our home. To this day, he still finds rusted tools strewn about the fort ruins he bumps into throughout the woods. Everytime he comes down to visit the grandkids, he attempts to talk my 3 and 5-year-old into throwing my tools into the pool as retribution. 

I get it.

The new site BLOWS (whitespace, indexing, threading, and so on).  MGoBlog on the Usenet would be an improvement over this version.

Never used it from a phone.

Linking involves clicking the third button from the left, the one with the picture of the links on it.  That's difficult?

Would this qualify for a new category - perhaps "Double OT"?

Not as bad as "The Bachelor" thread during the two week hiatus before the Big Ten Basketball tourney - but damn...

Oh I've tried Ozark and it is in deed awesome.

The first season of The Sinner is pretty damn good and genuinely disturbing at times.  It is really good but you are also kind of relieved once it is over.

Watched the first episode of Bodyguard on Netflix yesterday.  Sucked.  I have been told it is really good though so I am going to stick with it.

Lastly, for those who have not gotten over the "lol you can't be serious" and still have not watched Cobra Kai.  It is actually good and worth watching.

Edit- To Bambam: The Sinner now has a second season and it got strong reviews (I have not watched it yet) so maybe check that out.

I agree with you that, on balance, the writing is suffering on a lot of TV shows lately.  People are far more interested right now in having a boatload of content to watch at any given setting than they are in the real quality of what they are watching.  Netflix and Amazon shows are particularly guilty of this, IMO, given the binging format of their releases.  Ozark is an exception, but in that case somewhat lackluster writing is made up for by fantastic lead performances.

Not surprisingly, the most well written shows right now (Better Call Saul, Westworld, as a couple of examples) are still shows airing week to week that need to hold up in somebody's mind over the course of time instead of just as TV gluttony.

I think you are right. There is still good stuff out there but I am the type who usually tries something after people rave about it for a while, so I won't know until there are a few seasons out there. Plus, I am too restless to sit and watch something for several hours so when I find something, I end up watching one episode at a time.

I wish this video explained the science. Why would a coral that was broken grow faster than a coral that was unbroken when they are the same size? Mgobiologist help? Is there a paper published on this?

This is a fantastic discovery but it is difficult to grasp why this is happening. Did it really take this long for someone to notice this behavior? 

Regardless, I think that posting something that could be this revolutionary in saving the world's coral reefs is more than worthy of a single post on this board.

Thanks for sharing this, OP.
