Oh, dear. I think Ben is a bit confused.

“With what audacity do you compare Hamas that murdered, burned, butchered, decapitated, raped and kidnapped our brothers and sisters and the IDF soldiers fighting a just war.”

Well, I’m not sure we have any ironclad evidence of rape and kidnap against civilians by the IDF but we can definitely check-off “murdered, burned, butchered and decapitated” – it’s on the news every day. That’s how I’d compare them.

Whether you regard this as “just” or not is a matter of perspective but the actions of Hamas and the IDF are entirely comparable.

Watched Jurassic World Dominion (2022) by an author from letterboxd.com
Four years after Isla Nublar was destroyed, dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.

Exceeded my rock bottom expectations by some margin. While JP might be a stone classic, many films in this series are objectively bad. Look at JP2. I admire the effort to take this beyond “the dinosaurs got out (again)”.

And the ensemble was pretty well served, didn’t feel like anyone was there for the sake of it. Except maybe Alan, but that was even played up.

Breed by Nirvana

Just spent an hour fixing some code I wrote when I was in the same timezone as the server. School boy error really but I guess limited to those who usually live/work in GMT!

Also, and I guess this is a common problem in older code, I discovered that the way the dates were being stored is out-dated, so I had to update them all to DateTime. And that’s what really took the time!

Given the dire predictions about the UK harvest, because of all the rain, if I were a young, naive, Christian policeman, I’d call in sick today #beltane
