Off Topic / Re: Real life accidents on film/tv sets

I also grew up around guns* and wouldn't expect an actor, someone who spends their working day immersed in fiction and special effects, someone who pretends to do all kinds of things from the most mundane to the impossible, someone who is surrounded by people whose job it is to do everything for them that doesn't involve acting, people whose job it is to make sure everything is comfortable and safe for them so they don't have to worry about anything but pretending convincingly, to be held accountable for eff all when handed something and told it's safe.

Because the actor potentially hasn't grown up around guns. Anyone handing a gun to an actor should always assume that the actor is an ignorant moron.




* I haven't actually fired one since I was a child, (and that's not a joke).

Who can say why he's in distress as opposed to datdress.

Now you mention it though, he does look like the combined upstairs ornamentation of my late grandmother's residence circa 1986, (Charlie Chaplin figurine outside toilet, fancy bog-roll wumman inside).

But how do you call a guy in distress? Dane in distress?

Dude in distress.

Nobody going to mention the fact that the baby in Scarlet Traces has the same name as the main protagonist of one of Ian Edginton's other stories?

Only slightly less mental than what I suggested, then...

All that "time is evil" stuff has me half expecting Sapphire and Steel to turn up at any moment.

I'm pretty sure it's only Scooter's healing ability that doesn't work anymore.

Could I safely take you never heard for alchemists?

I have most certainly heard of alchemists and while there's certainly some crossover in the witches' and alchemists' methods, they're not the same thing and the two words are not synonymous.

First recorded use of the word "alchemist" - 15th century.
First recorded use of the word "witch" - 9th century.

I have right to pick up what I dislike, that definitely isn't going to be a witch. Which, I am sure existed then, but weren't called witches.

You are incorrect, (again).

Aye, but it also implies that it wasn't English to begin with.

There are at least three origins for the name, the English one being derived from "someone who lives near a grove" in much the same manner that mine is probably derived from "someone who lives near a church", (though flip knows which particular Northern European country that actually originates in).

Also, I don't think Steelgrave is a real name either. It's certainly been "borrowed" from a fictional character.

(And, FWIW, although Grover has a Punjabi origin, it also exists as an Anglicisation of Gruber.)

It also exists as an English surname.

It's quite ironic how much fandom's all in a frenzy over Ken Niemand being a pen-name. Because, and I realize this may not be obvious, my real name doesn't rhyme with [Scunthorpe].

Farcebookers are bound to be a bit more upset because so many of them use actual factual monikers. Plus, the MAGAverse hierarchy have a long-running grudge with Rennie (I was shown that they're currently posting art of him as a grotesque slime monster) and are obsessed with their pet theory of him being Niemand.

Don't know about MAGA, but apparently many buy that Rennie is Niemand thanks to Mills' tweet.

...Mills believing it to be the case, purely because that's what he's been told by halfwits on t'internet.
