Yes, although at this point there's only 2 weeks left of 6.5, so I don't think it's coming early.
Do you have a great big picture window in your exercise bike room like everybody I've seen in a Pelaton commercial, except for the black guy for some reason?
Speaking of black people, seems like every black person on tv calls their mother "mama" even though I've never heard a real life black person say it or at least I've heard it very infrequently. Could be a regional thing.
Have not read the whole thread, has anyone mentioned that every detective show has a “Strangers on a Train” episode.
No one I know in the North East says "Mama". Mostly "Ma" or as they say here in Boston "Maaah".
"Mama" might be a southern thing.
Freddie Mercury said "Mama."
But he had just killed a man...
The reason is that if people saw him, they would call the police and report he had stolen the bike and was trying to get away.
My grandmother in Ohio was grandma and the one in New Jersey was nana.

It's a big sky out there - and many large asteroids are discovered surprisingly late. While the rest have merit I'm quite skeptical of "Truth" - "Astronomers are aware of all the big asteroids which are going to pass our planet in the next 100 years".
They know the orbits to a reasonable degree of accuracy over at least the next 100 years of all detected big asteroids. That's not the same thing as being sure you've detected them all.
Yeah, I agree with that mostly. But it's also not "at any moment" either. I suspect is there is a new, previously undetected asteroid, they would be able to detect it well in advance of the planet's demise. But probably not quickly enough to launch a huge laser or atomic bomb to blow it up. But maybe with SpaceX operating so efficiently, quickly enough to launch something on a Falcon9 to nudge it out of the way.
My understanding is that anything coming at us from the plane of the ecliptic (where the vast, vast majority of asteroids are) will be seen well in advance, and probably is already known. The problem would be asteroids with eccentric orbits (i.e., coming from above or below the plane of the ecliptic), which both could get quite close without being noticed, and are much less likely to already be known.
Yeah, the asteroid one bugged me too.

This isn't necessarily a 'plot' trope, but it seems a lot of sitcoms where they own a house, the house is 2 levels with a staircase.
This would be a house only, apartments wouldn't count.
It seems to be used to give the actors a place to go, and to appear, onscreen.
There are probably a lot, but the only one that I can think of off the top of my head that was just one level was The Golden Girls.
All in the Family. Cosby Show. The Facts of Life. Family Ties. Modern Family. Brady Bunch. Fresh Prince. Happy Days. Rosanne. Full House. Married with Children.
And of course, Big Bang Theory.
All those you listed on the first line are two story houses with staircases. Unless you were confirming the 'trope'.
And Big Bang was an apartment, but stairs did play a big part of their place.
Yes, all of those fit your description, and that was off the top of my head. It's a very common set setup.
Exactly. It's still the same idea though as the house. And also why I put a smilie there.
I also think that's the "classic" All-American suburban house. I'd also imagine they have a lot of sets they've created over the years with that kind of layout which they repurpose.
