RE: [VIDEO] OBI-WAN KENOBI SERIES

But Leia knows who Obi-wan is...?

Isn't the line "Help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you're my only hope." the setup for the entire Star Wars franchise from A New Hope in 1977?

RIP Vangelis...

"Greek composer Vangelis, who was known for his celebrated film themes for Chariots of Fire and Blade Runner, has died at the age of 79."

Listened to those tracks just now, first time in ages. I'd forgotten how much they lent to those movies.

RE: Dennis waterman RIP

Brings back some memories... and seems only yesterday! 😞

RE: Energy crisis

Can you add extra capacity to the battery system?

RE: Energy crisis

An extra note regarding the 0% VAT. If you install a battery system at the same time as the solar PV (so have it done as all one system), then the battery system is also 0% VAT.

RE: Energy crisis

If energy prices stay high (and keep climbing), it might be worth checking your solar panel cost again...

For us, large house, family use, the return of investment has gone from 12+ years to 6-7 years based on April 2022 price cap elec price. Both periods are well within the 20 year lifetime of solar panels. But we plan to still be here past 6-7 years, so we would get "free" elec for a few years...

Just need the initial investment £ (Scotland's 0% loan scheme).

Reading the films he was involved in, its a catalogue of favourites. Sad start to the week.

RE: [VIDEO] Army of Thieves (Netflix)

You've made me really, really want to check it out now to see how bad it is!

And then I'll probably just watch it, lazily not bothering to change to something else... ☹

RE: [VIDEO] The Orville

The Disney+ rating system does go a bit random at times. Odd Pixar and Disney (cartoon) movies don't appear when a profile is set as child, even though they're U rated.

RE: [VIDEO] The Orville

Appears in Star section, and when I search.

RIP Charlie Watts

No words to say really on this one...

How many of the 2000 army truck drivers are reservists who's day job is (already) driving trucks...

RE: RIP Richard Donner

RIP, and thanks for so many enjoyable movies...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

11 countries, and we have trade agreements with 7 already, and are negotiating with 2 more.

Still, opportunities for all those fishermen to sell their fresh fish to instead of the EU I guess...

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

About 350 days since first UK covid case, and we still haven't controlled our borders properly...

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/transport/new-rules-uk-arrivals-negative-covid-test-delayed-b884694.html

Island nation, yet one of the highest covid rates per million population...

Still, at least the fish are happy (not going to link to that idiot).

RE: RIP: Jeremy Bulloch

RE: The Russia Report

Isn't thst (bullying) another report they're trying to redact/bury?

RE: Government halts support for fracking.

Not the most reliable source, but apparently Leadsom has said its only a temporary ban (until scientific understanding improves...).
