You know you've seen this one too many times when the NPR announcer introduces a piece by Igor Stravinsky and your knee jerk thought is "it's pronounced Eye-gore"

I watched this great film, Stan & Ollie on the long 787 Dreamliner flight back from Israel and really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.....

I thought this was a very well done film. Especially the guy who played Stan. If I believed in reincarnation, I'd have thought he came back just to play this role. And that hotel clerk scene... un-flipping believable. I appreciate any movie that relies on dialogue rather than extraneous stimuli to keep the viewer engaged. This one did not disappoint.

On Disney+ last night saw "Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made" --- I saw myself in his creative work avoidance (mine occurred in middle school while his is at 5th grade) and I saw my previous colleague in his avoidance "mistakes were made" from the time we had some molybdenum rods stuck in stainless steel and needed to remove them. Our adviser saw they needed to be removed in order to do further design work/prep and then saw they were stuck. My colleague then said "....maybe a hammer was used..." to which our adviser stopped and looked at her and repeated it back to her followed with "and why would you think a hammer was used" with a smile and a head shake. That incident has stuck in my memory over the years. Good times.


As a follow up, our adviser gave the grad students an assignment to design a tool to get the stuck rods out. I may have been the only one to consider it-- I tried pliers and some leveraging but they were really stuck. Then it occurred to me to look up the coefficient of thermal expansion between the different metals-- aha! They were different with the stainless being larger. In theory the stainless steel would expand more when heated than the moly rod-- and perhaps then the pliers could pull without extra leverage. I reached for the industrial strength hair dryer. Success!
