    Nah that's still your phone, which is fine. I think we mean watching on the back of the seat in front of you, where films are edited, squished into the square, seemingly lower resolution, etc.

    What's wrong with watching stuff on a plane? I watched Buster Scruggs on my phone on a plane last month and I still incredibly enjoyed the movie. As far as Schindler's List goes, I have to echo many of the things brought up in the episode. Like Paul, I was really dreading this one due to its content and runtime. But like Amy and Paul said, it's a much more enjoyable movie than I remembered it being, and it feels like far less than 195 minutes. (I might be in the minority here, but I think the only time the film really slows down too much for my taste is the middle 45 minutes or so when they're spending time developing the relationships between Goeth and Schindler and between Goeth and Hirsch. That might have worked well for some people, but it seems to be at a different pace than the rest of the movie.) I can see why critics might argue that the enjoyability of the film is in some way disrespectful to the actual horrific real-life circumstances. However, I think it serves to expose a wider audience to the story, and I wouldn't really say that the film sugarcoats things. It's an incredibly brutal film, and I think it's a credit to Spielberg that audience members were able to absorb this brutality and be affected by it without it causing them to shut down and stop watching. I contrast it with something like Come and See which is a fantastic film about the brutality of WWII, but it is so dire that it's a really hard film to get through. So how do you portray something miserable and brutal without it feeling like exploitation or misery porn or something? It's a tough line to walk, but I think this film manages to do it correctly.

    Of course I stuff my bird feeder full of dead birds. How else will the other animals get enough birds to eat?

    Hey Paul! As a medical student one week away from exams, I have spent most of my days this week glued to a textbook in the depths of the library. HOWEVER, I had to rip my tear-crusted, sleep-deprived eyes away from my giant textbook so that I could talk about those Belladonna eyedrops. Yes, those deadly suckers that June and Jason were skeptical about. I had just learned about them in class and I just need to set the record straight. Firstly, YES, they are real! Renaissance women used them to make their eyes bigger. Today, we commonly use a chemical in the Belladonna plant for certain heart issues and motion sickness. Also, you CAN die of an overdose on the Belladonna eyedrops. However, I have not come across straight-up Belladonna eyedrops in this modern age (not that I actively look for them). Perhaps she made them herself?... Lastly, I want to talk about HOW the poison works because I don't think the writers understand what happens when you OD on something like Belladonna. It ain't pretty. We have some rhymes in the medical community for the symptoms of this poison: Red as a beet, hot as a hare, blind as a bat, mad as a hatter. Oh and constipation. Like, unbelievably severe constipation. What a way to kill someone. Anyway, thanks for a great show! You guys always make my day brighter after a stressful day in the hospital. Keep up the good work!
