    I really enjoyed it so far. The darkish shade of the shots really does it for me. Although I enjoyed every scene, I felt like they are moving the story very slowly. Like, they are stretching out lot of incidents but it doesn't feel like it until we try to recap what happened in the last episode.
    Also, can anyone suggest similar movies/series which are based on disaster events?

    On an entirely different topic. I feel bad for pewdiepie, I mean I understand that he is on top of something and he should be more responsible for his content. But, This is the second time he has been mentioned in something horrible like this. Imagine how devastating it can be. I have been watching his videos for over a year now, I don't think he intentionally wanted to promote any of alt-right personalities or ideologies he has been accused of promoting. Again, I do think he should be more careful with his content. But his edginess is what I like about him.

    This is not Bollywood this is mollywood. Bollywood is hindi based film industry which is spoken mostly in north indian states. Our states are formed based on linguistic differences so in south india neighboring states speak different languages. So in kerala (where this movie is based on) people speak Malayalam so our film industry is called mollywood.

    I got a little side tracked here,sorry. To answer your question, I don't really watch Bollywood movie that often so I don't know what your perception is when it comes indian movies. But, I tell you what.. mollywood makes really good thrillers (unfortunately highest grossing ones are not up to the mark in my opinion). If you are interested in mollywood thrillers checkout Angamaly diaries it is a gangster movie which I think captured the real essence of our culture.

    This movie is based on a fatal virus(nipah) spreading happened in my state last year. From the trailer I think the movie has captured the intensity of the situation very well. If anybody wants to know more about what happened check out this this post on reddit. Subtitles on the trailer is pretty accurate if anybody is concerned.

    I really dont know if this is the right place to post it or not. For the first few paragraph the writer speaks about how normalization of deviance caused the The challenger disaster. After that they writes about why it is important to know about this and how to avoid this in real life. This was definitely a good read for me and I agree to most of the points raised in the article. I would like to hear your thoughts.

    I am exactly the person you are talking about, I have previously tried "learn coding to make your life easier\Learn coding in 1 month" courses. Everytime I will get confused and frustrated and end up droping the whole thing regretting the time and effort I put in. But recently I addressed these problems in one post and found out there are a lot of people like me. some of these people who got around this problem suggested me this site which uses a primitive way of teaching (atleast for me). Im through 1st chapter and Im excited for 2nd. Im also prepared for uncomfortableness which may come in the near future.

    I love doing or getting involved with some niche things. But I don't consider myslef a expert on anything yet because when I scrape surface of something I would get so much excited and get that feeling it would be so much interesting to get into. when I really get into the rabbit hole I would feel overwhelmed and I would stop on the halfway.

    At my younger ages I found mathematics so much interesting and my peers used to see me as somekind of genious even though I was not that good at everyother subjects. I absolutely made a stupid decision by not taking mathematics for my Bachelor's. Im now doing Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering in which I have to take mathematical subjects and I find so much pleasure solving mathematical problems. I don't know how I would react to more abstract concepts and application of maths but I love doing stuffs like integration. So even though I like mathematics Im no expert in that.

    I had a very good knowledge about contemporary android phones and available custom roms. That's one of the things that dragged me into reddit and eventually into tildes. I used to research about every new phone's specification, its custom rom developments and specific tweaks you can do in it. Even now I can educate someone about difference between kernels and roms.I know what are the important specification of a smartphone also I know how to make a android phone more privacy centric but I dont know how to fix a bug or any issue but I know where to lookup about it lol. So not an expert in that either.

    pardon my grammar :))

    I was introduced to this whole elsevier and open acess movement thing pretty recently. I have read couple of articles about it but I couldn't find any of them even trying look at it from Elsevier's perspective. I found this podcast from reddit, it seems pretty civil and rational discourse about the matter which includes rational perspectives from both sides. Podcast had William Gunn, director of scholarly communications for Elsevier and Alex Holcombe, cognitive scientist and open science advocate.

    I was very religious in most of my adolescence mostly because I was raised in a religious family. My parents was very conservative so even though the religion they believed in was profoundly liberal (Hinduism) they were very strict about practising religious rituals. They made me pray every day which I didn't like even though I was religious back then.

    When I became more active online most of people I met were atheists so I rationalized the theory that I need to be an atheist to be perceived as an intellectual and I became one. For most people it won't make much of a difference if they are atheist or Hindu. But for me it definitely does, because I would fight with my parents most days when they force me to pray or something.

    After a while I became what they call an arrogant atheist. I started to bully, criticize and defame religious people in discourses relating to religion(online).It was mostly my frustration towards my parents I was venting on these people. But, I found pleasure in doing so and I was getting attention and validation which I craved so much.

    Fast forward nowadays I became much more tolerable to people with different opnions again because of the people I met online (Im still an atheist). Today Im a 21 yr old person who have dreams,hopes and opnions which I believe can be altered by the environment Im living in. This is just one change I have gone through there are ton of them like approach towards feminist ideologies etc.. most of which happened online

    I recently finished reading Flowers for Algernon it was an awesome read. I haven't read any books for years and this was the one of the most suggested books for starters. I bought a physical copy of the book, but now I think I should probably invest in a kindle which is more portable and affordable in the long run. So I have to postpone reading until my savings can afford a kindle(I don't have a job).
