What is a little white lie you were told as a child, that you believed for too long?

I was way too old when I figured out a human couldn't actually get sucked down a drain or flushed down a toliet. I used to cling to my little brothers, and pull them out of the bath any time my Mum would pull to plug.

@RickiTarr I was told that a cherry tree would grow inside me if I swallowed a pit. Terrified me!

I'm so ...I've lost my fingerprint. FBI rejecting my illegible prints required for volunteer work. Tech said my long career (tap tap tap!) may be to blame. They will verify me another way.

Yesterday's cinema: "Nyad" manages to be a heart-pounding film even though you know what happens. A more compelling watch than Oppenheimer, in fact. (My personal vote for best pic also puts Past Lives, The Holdovers, Anatomy of a Fall and Barbie before Oppenheimer).

Not sure I will ever get used to finding a tennis ball in my bed every night. New dog, new tricks. Meet Mojo.

@thepoliticalcat Attachment to a tennis ball is beyond my realm. 🙃

Watched Society of the Snow about the rugby team whose plane crashed in the Andes in '72. Most disconcerting was that the film was dubbed in English when it was obvious actors' lips were speaking Spanish (I think). Is Netflix right that people won't read subtitles?

After dabbling in Blue Sky, the most egregious aspect is that the "star accounts" are promoted relentlessly and it's extremely difficult to connect with regular folk. No all-inclusive feed is provided. Instead, you're prompted to follow feeds made up of popular accts. The high profile people try to outdo each other with snark, bite and titillation while everyone else ogles. Granted, the site is entertaining but it stinks of ego and pretension, too. Not a place for sharing your own thoughts.

I was reading an article about physician bias and -- swear to gosh -- I read the phrase "health-scare system." I need to coin this term.
