WOW. My brother and his wife and their kids are going to be in New York around Christmastime..must tell them about this!
A must see MP for visitors who enjoy Harry Potter films and books. Have them buy you your own wand and you can use it on Broccoli to perform the imperious curse and get her to remove Cr-egg from her clutches :!: The Imperius Curse (Imperio) was a tool of the Dark Arts, and was one of the three Unforgivable Curses. When cast successfully, the curse placed the victim completely under the caster's control.

New stuff gang: CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Cleveland Clinic recently studied the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccination among people who caught the virus and those who haven’t. The study finds that anyone who previously tested positive for a SARS-CoV-2 infection did not get additional benefits from the vaccine, which suggests the vaccines should be prioritized to people who haven’t gotten the infection. The clinic says this research provides insight into how the immune system protects the body once a COVID-19 infection is confirmed. During the study that was conducted on 52,238 employees in the Cleveland Clinic, the clinic says “not a single incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection was observed in previously infected participants with or without vaccination.”

Further evidence that powerful magnets in some Apple iPhones can interfere with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) comes from a small study that also suggests some devices are more susceptible than others. The iPhone 12 Pro Max with MagSafe technology interfered with CIEDs implanted in three consecutive patients :shock: presenting to an electrophysiology lab and in eight of 11 implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and pacemakers (72.7%) still in their original packaging. :shock: Be aware of this if you are near anyone with these issues.

A higher-than-usual number of cases of a type of heart inflammation has been reported following Covid-19 vaccination, especially among young men after their second dose.

There was a lot of hope from theater owners and industry observers that Warner Bros.’ “In the Heights” would help maintain, or even grow, the recent box office momentum. Instead, the film opened to just $11.4 million and lost what was expected to be an easy No. 1 launch to the third weekend of Paramount’s “A Quiet Place — Part II.” . With critical acclaim and early Oscar buzz, there had been hope that the Jon M. Chu musical would capture a section of the audience that isn’t interested in horror films like “A Quiet Place” but searching for a feel-good movie after the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the film has fallen short of even the most conservative of expectations. Even franchise tentpoles released during the worst stages of the pandemic — “Wonder Woman 1984” opened to $16.7 million on Christmas weekend — have outperformed “In the Heights.”-------a "woke" bomb, this time by an overrated Lin-Manuel Miranda who is yesterday's news.

Agree with virtually everything in this video. The only complaint I have is with the way he kept reusing the same visuals over and over again. It was a 5-minute video, surely he could have found more clips.

I figured it would resonate positively here, I also enjoyed the comments below the video most were very critical of Craig and spanned several sentences, however of course a handful of Craigsters had to pop in with impotent, monosyllabic defenses of his highness, "closest to Flemming's Bond" "gritty" "realism" etc., compared to the fleshed out arguments against his run these weak come backs are quite humorous.

I agree he could have used more footage but I suppose it's a case of the message being more important than the visuals.

I skimmed through the comments. Any praise of Craig I saw was inevitably "the bulls**t before the but."

On Screenrant.com someone named Cathal Gunning suggests getting a new Moneypenny and a new M by elevating Naomi Harris to be M. This is ridiculous. This person suggests a new Q and a new Blofeld, minus the moronic step-brother connection, which makes sense...........What happens if Broccoli does not replace Cr-egg with a 'person of color'? Will she be able to handle the woke mob's attacks on her? Is she afraid of the negative press they will harpoon her with if she does not cave? MGW will have no say again. A new replacement will be announced most likely next year, after NTTD's theatrical run is over. TO BE....WOKE, OR NOT TO BE....WOKE.....THAT WILL BE BROCCOLI'S QUESTION.
