I pride myself in being the type of person who does not make a life out of observing the personal lives of other people. Human nature is an ugly thing, and I don't enjoy watching it in action.

When the medical profession, Medicare and drug companies are a tight team, effective and safe non-drug medical interventions might as well not even exist at all.

It's time to delete some old episodes of QI to clear memory on your television-recording thingmujig. The Ghost Ship (1943) produced by Val Lewton is scheduled for broadcast on ABC1 on Wednesday November 5th 2014 at 2.15am, or one might say very late Tuesday night.
I've read that Lewton was in real life an edgy yachstman, and there are certainly autobiographical elements in some of the movies he produced and co-wrote. Nevertheless, this movie was lost to the viewing public for 50 years due to a plagiarism lawsuit. Another interesting thing about this film was the fact that the most memorable line of the movie is delivered by the mute character.
