Daylight = the sun is above the horizon (thus it is a day). You might not see it because it is cloudy or foggy. but it is different compared to nighttime.

Sunlight = you have clear blue skies. Or at least not clouds covering the whole sky. You can see the sun,

I watched Titans first two episodes. The expletives seem over the top. They use the f word because they can. And is Robin a killer in the comics? He seems to be on Titans.

I've watched the first two seasons... It's a pretty decent show.

The series is based fairly loosely on the original storylines from the comic books. The whole comic book storyline of Dick Grayson forming the Teen Titans, and then later reforming them as just the Titans is pretty dark at points. (But well worth the read.)
The series is basically taking place between the disbanding of the Teen Titans under tragic circumstances and Dick reforming them a few years later. At that point, it still hadn't been all that long since he'd given up being Robin, so he was still trying to find his identity as Nightwing, and was still on the outs with Batman. He was being written as a somewhat darker person at that point. He wasn't necessarily a killer, but was definitely struggling with trying to contain the violence within him: the realization that Batman had basically weaponized a child was a big part of why they split. The show plays it up a bit more since the first season has a definite horror aspect to it, being focused on the girl's story.
The second season goes into a lot more of the backstory of the original Teen Titans, and shows how he ended up so dark and bitter.

if you haven’t already, get and read this.

KoDT is generally enjoyable to read. Bag Wars was awesome. And how did it start? Because they put a bunch of their NPCs inside a bag of holding with their food and supplies. The NPCs basically went on strike. Someone tried to reach inside for something and got struck by a boulder from a catapult. Thus their desire to enter bag world and reclaim their bag of holding and supplies.

I have also seen it. I enjoyed it, even though I think my biggest issue was pacing in the though. Like part of the middle (or beginning, I forget) of the second season was slow and then they finished it WAY too quickly. I felt the show definitely needed an extra 1-2 episodes for that season or trim down the earlier parts to expand the later parts. But overall, I do enjoy it and look forward to the next season.

And Doom Patrol as well. DC main movies haven't been that good (including WW84), but their non-CW shows have been pretty good to awesome.

When I was told my rent was going up by $210 I started to panic. I have since found out that was an error. That will be the increase for a new tenant. My rent is going up only $10-$15. Much more reasonable.

I linked to a game called OK Boomer. It's a trivia game with simple rules it's old school vs new school. You ask your opponent questions on the card for your generation like old school would ask when the first Woodstock concert was.

So it's old vs young and that's it. Why not mix the teams? Give half of the OS deck and half of the NS deck to each team. They take turns asking questions as normal. Mom and daughter vs Dad and son or a variant on that theme.

That would be a shock, no question!
I thought it was insane. I hadn't missed a payment (not even late). Other than a leaky kitchen sink, no complaints out of me. I've been good. In theory you might want to reward that by keeping the rent the same or increasing a little. So many have renter horror stories. Keep the rent reasonable to keep the good renter. This is a big relief.

I'm now on episode 6. Jason Todd has appeared. I'm enjoying it. I like Raven, and Beast Boy. I think I have to warm up to Robin and Starfire. I agree, the show is well done. I don't say this often. I like the music a lot. The look, the sound, the whole feel of the series reminds me of Batman Begins and Dark Knight. That's a good thing in my opinion.

I heard this story where the teller was advising the listeners to run towards the roar. This is because this is how lions hunt. The females go to the far end of the savanna and the male lion roars, which can be heard 5 to 8 miles away. The prey runs away from the roar and into the waiting arms of the females. So, you should run towards the roar because the male is slow and not good at hunting.

From my limited research this morning I can't find evidence of this. Unlike the WWII story I talked about before, there is plenty of video of lions hunting. Regardless of whether you run from the roar or towards it, you're probably gonna be eaten by a lion.
