    Hammond brings his grandchildren because he has 100% faith in his park. Bringing the visitors in was supposed to be his moment of utmost triumph, when he proves that he has indeed given this amazing gift to the world -- and he wants the kids to be part of the unveiling. Hammond is a true believer.

Her husband only knew she goes for photo shoots while in fact she was fucked by the wealthiest Norwegian man. This is a true story. I assure you.

    Favorite part is Muldoon taking on the raptors single handed. Even when he knows he's screwed, he gives praise to his opponent, "clever girl" = "Check mate". I mean how much of a bad ass can one man be? He was the best character, had the best hat and shouldn't have been killed off. I know why they did it but still. I'm sure if he survived, Ellie would have been married to him in JP3, not Mark.

    Millennials displayed their contempt for their neighbors and selfish self-importance when they went on spring break despite pleas from nearly everyone to eschew crowds and stay home. Here they had a chance to put into practice,in the simplest possible way, some of the caring compassion they keep claiming to celebrate. Instead it was whining about trips not being refunded and not caring about contracting and spreading a serious illness. As soon as the activism involved more than TikTok or Twitter or their FB feed it was too much work. Ok Boomer is bandied about as a reply to criticism. That criticism is way more well founded than you’d like it seems-and maybe Ok Boomer is the same sort of shallow stupid repudiation that might once have sounded like Ok Hippy or Ok Commie. Boomers didn’t cause corona, didn’t spread it, and didn’t ignore it. It was the Millennials. You can’t use the oldster boogie man with any more authority than when they were doing it to their parents. Ok Covid?

    There's the element of yogacara Buddhist philosophy, as an east of existentialism perspective, where all concepts of an external reality is a form of representation, hence the possibility that any person could be a representation (clone) of a more authentic version of thought qua person.

    With the whole thing about Death in Bojack I both agree and disagree. Now I don't know what the writers and the creator had in mind when they said their is no other side. But how I see it is, this all in Bojack's mind. Bojack never been shown to be religious at all. So for him there isn't an other side, so how he can redeem himself is by living his life not by being a memory.

    I like the extra level of detail from the book which reveals that there are in fact no dinosaurs in Jurassic Park at all. Hammond's company InGen had developed the technology to viably splice DNA, but a worldwide ban on 'engineered lifeforms' had made it impossible for them to implement the discovery, or recover the investment which had paid for its development. In response Hammond concocted a lie about mosquitoes trapped in amber allowing them to recover dormant DNA which would allow the company to recreate extinct species, which by definition would not be engineered, but would allow the gene splicing tech to become profitable. In truth, Dr. Wu was creating all the creatures from scratch, combining DNA to build creatures which looked like what people expected dinosaurs to be. All the beasts on the island were fully engineered, and the blood from the amber was a total red herring which rival biotech companies were beginning to realise, leading to Nedry's betrayal as he tried to smuggle samples of the engineered creatures off the island.
