Please, someone put The Hitman's Bodyguard out of its misery

I've only walked out of 3 movies in my life: Cujo, Mission Impossible 2 and, this weekend, The Hitman's Bodyguard.

I just couldn't take it anymore: after 75 minutes of stereotypical, juvenile stretches of logic, I had to leave.

(Note: I walked into this movie cold: no reviews, no trailers, no knowledge. I was invited and someone else paid for the ticket.)

I took my mother to see Mother!

I took my mother to see Mother!
Disturbing. Shocking. Disgusting. Leaving a seismic wake in its aftermath.

In this day and age, it is very difficult to cause these sort of deep responses to a film.

Rubin's Rubric: Dark Matters - poem in honor of scientist Vera Rubin

"Science is competitive, aggressive, demanding.
It is also imaginative, inspiring, uplifting." - Vera Rubin

I felt compelled to write this poem after hearing about the death of Vera Rubin.

A legendary astronomer, she discovered dark matter. Nominated but never awarded a Nobel prize, she received numerous other awards for her life's work.

From her we learn, "Dark matters".
