Junio - Day 0

This morning's DuoLingo bit was a short jaunt through the very basics, reacquainting myself with the most basic forms of 'be' and words like hombre, mujer, nino and nina. Nothing of major note, I definitely have to reacquaint myself with the verb conjugations as that is what used up my lives for the day.

I also have found an interesting book from several decades go (in ebook form), "Madrical's Magic Keys to Spanish." I am just checking it out, but it looks interesting and I am hopeful it will prove a useful resource.

From the time man first began to learn foreign tongues down to the present time, language methods have relied on memory and not on the pupil's powers of creation. Now the process is reversed. This book will teach you to create. The very first lesson will prove to you that you can create at least one hundred times more material than you could possibly memorize in the same given time.

Color me intrigued.

I have been rewatching The Knick, starring Clive Owen, and before rewatching it I would have told you watched Season 2, but would have been completely unable to tell you the core plot. Upon this rewatching it was confirmed that I watched it, but that my memories of the season were even more spotty with entire episodes and top plots completely forgotten.

Overall the show is... fine. I really enjoyed Clive Owen's performance, but the show is shockingly dark at times. If you enjoy history period pieces then you'll likely enjoy it, but if the first episode isn't immediately addictive to you - then you should abandon ship because it only gets harder from there.

Killer drone 'hunted down a human target' without being told to

No one should be surprised by this.
