  1. It is not scrutiny, but simple curiosity. Even if the reply is "just a hunch", I am ok with that.
  2. Interesting. I would like know why you predict: Port to beat Geelong? St Kilda to beat Western Bulldogs?
  3. The Hurdy Gurdy was already mentioned near the start of this thread. Nevertheless this is a nice short video explaining how it makes many different sounds.
  4. Bruno Mars achieved a lot of success in the last decade with catchy and popular songs. His biggest song to date is "Uptown Funk" with close to 4 Billion views on youtube. However this older song is a better showcase of his singing and range.
  5. This is a very good oil, I've used it myself. It used to be called Castrol Magnatec Professional A5 5W-30.
  6. Major changes to engine oil standards have already begun in May this year. These changes appeared to be driven by the American market and regulations: https://kendallmotoroil.com/news/everything-you-need-to-know-about-gf-6-and-api-sp-motor-oil-standards/ In short summary the previous standards were API SN and API SN Plus, as well as the ILSAC GF-5. These are the most common standards found on engine oil bottle labels that need to be matched/compatible with the specifications from the car's manual. From May the new standards are ILSAC GF-6A, GF-6B and API SP. ILSAC GF-6B is only available for oil of weight 0w-16. It is claimed that the new benefits are: Decreased greenhouse gas emissions Improved fuel economy Increased ability for OEMs to comply with environmental regulations Improved wear protection, especially for newer engine technologies Reduced sludge formation and varnish deposits for start-stop engines Protection from the LSPI phenomenon in TGDI engines Whilst GF-6A and SP are backwards compatible with the older standards, they are probably only needed for late models or brand new cars. Older cars should be fine with the superseded standards in accordance with their manual's specifications. That said I already found bottles with the the new standard in store last week and the roll-out has begun. (Funny that I ask the tech in store about the new standard and he didn't know what I was talking about 🤷‍♂️ )
  7. I've found the answer to my questions in this article: https://www.wired.com/2020/09/geeks-guide-dune-adaptation/
  8. Episode IX is unadulterated fan service. 😄 Is Disney Plus worth subscribing?
  9. Imagine Dragons is the first rock act to have two songs, "Believer" and "Thunder" to surpass one billion streams each (on Spotify). This is one of them.
  10. A touching tribute to Marie (R.I.P.) 😢 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pczp1BEZ8Zw&list=RD7BmDLv7KmCE&index=2
  11. Sounds like good news for fans. Surprise move (forward) in Dune's Australian release date to the 17 December.
  12. They need to make some money - the huge risk is described by this article here: https://screenrant.com/dune-2020-movie-box-office-bomb-failure-success/ If Dune's $200 million budget is true, by the usual rule-of-thumb they must make $400 million at the box office to break even. For comparison Blade Runner 2049 earned just $259 million on a budget of between $155-$185 million, i.e. they lost money. The Arrival did better because it had a very cheap budget (and Amy Adam was great).
  13. I agree, especially since I thought the trailer was pretty generic and nothing to get excited about. Her view that the cast is great is worth noting, a view shared by other reviewers.
  14. Adam Lambert must have enough chops to be hand picked for frontman of Queen. Good on him.
