I think he hit a strong forehand so was showing off his biceps. Not entirely sure though.
Haha no, in one period he did that after every match he won, like Youzhny his salutation, but imo he got it was a bit lame so he stopped it :P

I also want to have a basement so that I can practice a bit of karaoke singing without waking my neighbors up!  :rofl_2: :)~
HAha for that we use guitar pro :)) it's a great program for karaoke, i have 60000+ songs and you can turn the instruments on and off or make some of them more prominent, etc.... I like to use it to sing Judas Priest  :rofl_2:

I feel drained when I have to spend so much time with other people (am very sensitive to people and environment) so I managed to escape this one!
:rofl_2: Haha i know that feeling.... I'm like that with many of my real life friends, the reason is that we no longer have too much in common.....

My other plan is to finish watching BBC's The Paradise. Loving it so far.
Lol I never watch tv series, many talk about walking dead and game of thrones, well, after like 2 years????  i think i watched one episode of got with a friend, i got what it's about, gangbang, gangrape, humiliation, execution, imo it's for lowlifes.... i watch only sports on tv....

There - I flooded every major section of this forum with posts. Now quit b**ching about it like a stupid b**ch.  :rofl_2: :)~ :)~ :)~

Heya swish and Nekro  ;-()

I saw The Theory of Everything and it is a solid movie, however I didn't like all the dramatization
because it could have been more about his scientifc discoveries and contributions rather than his
daily struggles with illness. I've read his 'A brief history of time' and it's splendid.

I gotta say, out of all science related books I think my favorite is Heisenberg's: 'Physics and Beyond'. Great take on physics especially quantum mechanics and philosophy.

That's your Hollywood version of the movie to get the actors some Oscars and as you can see, they succeeded. If this was more about discoveries and contributions, it would have then made to documentary. As you can see, it defeats the purpose.

I saw The Iron Lady a few weeks ago and was left with the same desire as it almost never focuses on her childhood, her eventual rise to the political career and her subsequent PM role and all the controversies around her. I mean she had gone through quite a few. Instead it mainly focuses on her dementia for the most part and the idea behind it was to give Meryl Streep more to work with, so that she could get an Oscar (and she did). There's always an agenda you see.

I was a tad disappointed as I had different expectations, like you. Had I not had that expectation I probably would have enjoyed the movie more. Otherwise the movie was pretty good from no expectations' view. MS was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed the part of her husband.

I must say though Hollywood almost never sticks to true stories as they not only like to dramatize matters but also, they are more keen on making feel good movies as they want their audience to be happy leaving the theatre. Not a bad strategy if there's going to be a moral of the story but reality begs to differ as usual. And I am not sure which one we should opt for - reality or the illusion. But then again, reality itself is an illusion. Catch 22!

i've always loved cosmology and am interested to the point of obsession in the not unrelated topics of consciousness and artificial intelligence.
  The sheer vastness of the cosmos is mind boggling, but even more so the fact that there are entities within it who can contemplate it's magnificence. Some interpretations of quantum mechanics posit a special role for consciousness in the process of quantum measurement, the wave function collapse for example.
  it's as if the that riddle about  'If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?' could be applied to the entire universe.
  Oh, and shine on you crazy diamond, cool.

According to Quantum physics, it doesn't make a sound as both elements need to arrive at the same time. In other words, if there's no one to listen to it, then the fall of the tree in a forest doesn't make any sound.

It's same with the egg and chicken debate and one of them arriving first. They both arrive or come into existence at the same time.

I say it's Alzheimers then. Oh Alex!

On topic, a fifth set TB is very welcoming although it tends to rob the players who worked so hard to get there and it's over because of one tiny mistake. In other words, it doesn't give you too many chances and often extremely nerve wrecking (as a fifth set isn't enough for the nerves).

I personally don't like long matches. Occasionally long is okay as we see these days. I don't like short matches either. You can't get into it emotionally as it's over before you know it. In short, they both have their pros and cons. I don't think neither deserves to be on top of the other.

Also, I am not sure which one is better as far as suffering is concerned. Do you want a quick death or a long suffering one - given the premise that you are going to die anyway ... or do you? The longer one may give you some illusion or hope even that you may beat this, you may survive in the end. And then, sometimes, you do!
