    The close-up image is less revealing.

    I've stared at the thing for entirely too long today. There's a lot packed into that little (giant) photo.

    I doubted this was really the first photo of a black hole, but apparently it is. I've searched, and I cannot come up with a picture of the Reds' 2018 pitching staff.

    Isn't that one of the characters from "Ghostbusters"?

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Real Ghostbusters.

    Cannot get myself to watch the other. I don't care how good anyone says it might be.

    Shame, it was pretty good, Kate McKinnon is brilliant.

    It was legitimately one of the worst movies I've ever seen. A total disgrace to the original.

    Audience reviews and box office numbers do not lie...

    Luckily we're getting a real Ghostbusters 3 in 2020, I believe. No more fauxbusters.

    lol not really, no

    Much of the audience reviews (IMDB/Rotten Tomatoes) consisted of spam from Men's Rights types. I was glad to recently see Rotten Tomatoes say they were going to try to fix that problem, it's made aggregators useless.

    Anyway, completely off topic, so I'll let someone else have the last word on how mad they are that there was a ladies Ghostbusters.

    Thanks for the implication that I hated the movie because it had women in it, even though I said nothing to indicate that was the case!

    I didn't like the idea of a Ghostbusters reboot with different actors anyway, but if they were going to go down that route the lady ghostbusters were as good of an idea as any I thought.

    It just wasn't funny. At all.

    Most people seem to agree. Sorry that you didn't and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is None. None more black.
