Marlow So many people getting banned from . Milo for one, but surprised Arsenal fan DT getting banned for wanting a change of manager. I wonder why they don't jump along here on sublevel. It's roomy - more space for words and thoughts.

Mark Dain Not surprising honestly, a lot of people browse the web on their phones & tablets
Marlow We need a new verb that's input ambiguous, like scroll. Something that means click + tap and also point-at/select-without-touching (VR).

Martijn I have an interesting dating conundrum: how do I make sure girls don't assume me to be gay?
Marlow Check out other girls when she's not watching, but let her "catch you" a few times. She'll think you're a bit of a playa', but she won't think you're gay.

Marlow Hiff - to exhale audibly through the nose in suppressed or slightly-amused laughter. He hiffed when I told him I could fly.

Marlow "I'm scared for my life..." "Listen... do you know what fear stands for?" "What do you mean?" "False evidence appearing real." "Fear actually comes from gefaer - which literally means danger... Fear literally comes from danger."

Marlow Just finished Season 2 of . Still can't remember anyone's name. I told my girlfriend that "Rachel McAdams and Tim Riggins crashed an orgy." That's the best you're gonna get from me.

Marlow For example, in Breaking Bad Hank's discovery of Heisenberg's identity was a cliffhanger, but the issue was not resolved in the next episode - it just kept escalating until the end. The conflict between Walt/Jesse and Gus was not a single episode, but it was continuous until the end of the season. Boring shows have a revolving door of villains and problems who are introduced and dealt with in a single episode.

Marlow Some shows are highly episodic: a situation arises at the start of the episode and ends at the end of the episode. Every episode has a new story. Some are a bit more suspenseful: the episodes end with a cliffhanger of a problem that will be dealt with in the next episode. Sometimes that's a shallow cliffhanger - the problem is solved in the first 5 mins of the next episode, sometimes it's deeper - the whole episode is spent dealing with it, resolving it and then ends with a new cliffhanger. The best shows have longer arcs of suspense - sub-plots, mini-cliffhangers, episodic events, but you see that something big is developing.

Marlow In a TV show, you shouldn't have long pieces of music (singer singing, band performing, etc), at the expense of a story. Watching a singer sing for 5 minutes can get real boring real quick. You could always watch them start the song and continue playing over a video montage of actual things happening. That's why Breaking Bad's music scenes are fun while Treme feels like a musical sometimes and gets boring.

Marlow It's when all the scared rats start running away from the sinking market that the true entrepreneurs come in. True visionaries.

Marlow Chelsea won't win the league or the Champions League this year. They just won't, even if they panic buy this winter.

Marlow Human memory is so powerful, yet we still have to write things down to remember them - addresses, phone numbers, names, lyrics, words. Despite having zettabytes of memory in our brains, we still can't write something like a number to the database. Our memory is basically all RAM. Ask someone to repeat "53467402" and they could probably do it. Ask them 5 minutes later what the line was and it's gone. It's all RAM.

Marlow I just watched the Godfather (I and II). It does insist upon itself.
