It might leave an even bigger scar, Iggy.

Jane

Gus,

The queen of England. My friend is Australian if that helps. Care to guess?

Threadkiller

Since she already has the skull thing down, CH, it probably is an easy step to go Ghost Rider to the finish lane.

Dave (in MA)

I'll guess that Pope JP1's month in the Papacy didn't include a trip to Australia.

GUS

Olivia Newton John for the win.

TK, my main problem with Coulter is that she doesn't acknowledge what has been possible. What Trump has already done to counter the Uniparty globalists is pretty amazing and for her to act like it's not nearly enough goes a long way to explaining why we don't have nice things.

Captain Hate

Iggy,

I've had a number of skin growths removed in the past, usually when a dermatologist was mildly concerned (they were all fine). I've asked about one that I sporadically nick while shaving and they've all said "we advise leaving it in place because it's not causing problems and would be more major to remove than what you have had done".

I suspect that's Aaron Neville's situation.

If one were to simply google Invectin dose, one can find this:

https://www.rxlist.com/stromectol-drug.htm#side_effects

and this:
Strongyloidiasis
The recommended dosage of STROMECTOL (ivermectin) for the treatment of strongyloidiasis is a single oral dose designed to provide approximately 200 mcg of ivermectin per kg of body weight. See Table 1 for dosage guidelines. Patients should take tablets on an empty stomach with water. (See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, Pharmacokinetics.) In general, additional doses are not necessary. However, follow-up stool examinations should be performed to verify eradication of infection. (See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY, Clinical Studies.)

Also, there are some pretty concerning side effects at that link anyone who would self administer needs to be aware of.

Guessing this could turn out like the fish tank cleaner did for that one fellow.

Today's batch of Oregon test results was 6.7% positive, and the cumulative positive is now 5.3%. With 4 more deaths, that total is now 26, or 2.6% of confirmed positives.

Our first COVID-19 case was confirmed on 12 January ... almost 3 months ago. Suspected COVID-19 visits to hospital EDs peaked 12 days ago at 6.5% of total daily ED visits and have held at 2% for the past 3 days.

So changing your mind Amom?

She really lacks graciousness, CH.

My weakness is anchor baby rants and worthwhile shots at The First Rugrats. I think the political world needs an unsatisfied loudmouth like her just so there is an extreme reference point to guardrail one side of the road for us normal people.

Welp I'd never try to shut her up, TK, and maybe the 1% full people would say she keeps necessary pressure on. I think she aims in the right direction but I'd bet the people who attended past rallies are more pleased than she is on how things have changed.

I enjoyed the documentary that Ig posted on the making of The Prisoner, too.

It was an ambitious undertaking, in terms of themes and metaphors. Clearly they came up short at the end and the documentary says McGoohan skedaddled off to America and lived in obscurity for a while.

One quite entertaining part was when they played about 4 candidates for the theme music. Wow! The chosen music is strong and completely bound to the show now. Those other 3 bits leave one shaking one's head.

--Clearly they came up short at the end...--

With the greatest respect jim, don't concur.
I thought the last episode was maybe the most brilliant TV I've ever watched.
What they came up short regarding were people's expectations. Problem is people didn't get the point of it all and they expected Blofeld or Goldfinger at the end.
So when to answer the question of who the great evil Number One was and McGoohan held up a mirror to the viewer and said; I am, we are, YOU ARE, the viewers were outraged, either because they still didn't get it, or worse, they did.
A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country.

My Facebook avatar is a Jack Lenor Larsen design from 1969 (year of my birth). It is a piece of fabric that I bought on ebay years ago and is somewhere in my closet or storage unit (I'm going to find it one of these days). It's huge and beautiful.

This is one of the images from the auction. The pattern is called Durrow, after The Book of Durrow. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Durrow

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

This is probably boring other people out of their skulls so I'll only go over my reading of The Prisoner one last time.
To me there were three levels;
1. Johnny Rivers' Secret Agent Man
2. Huxley's Brave New World Man
3. Man
3 was the real fundamental point of it all. Through all of the first 16 episodes he is pitted against the "enemy" in a battle of wits and will and resource. He prevails over every Number Two, even killing Leo McKern [almost for real]. Pride is his main resource. It's some high undefined moral principle that enrages him enough to resign and to have contempt for his former employer. He maintains his loyalty is absolute and that they betrayed him. He vows never to stop trying to escape. He outfoxes them all until his iron will and indomitable pride finally effects his release and his triumph at unmasking Number One. "I am not a number. I am a free man!"
And then he finds it was the pride he took such pride in that was the actual source of his imprisonment and torment the whole time.
Lessons in humility are not big sellers with consumers of TV, now or then. Nor is the stolen catharsis of the anticipated revelation of an external, extraordinary, particular evil revealed to actually be a universal, banal and internal one instead; one inside the viewer himself.

Hence the outrage and having to hide out off the grid til things cooled down and then leaving for America.
As I said before I think it was a very Christian theme, though probably inadvertently. Maybe not, IDK.
A resolute free man, alone against the world finds in the end the paradox any thinking person does; we all need redemption, but none of us can redeem ourselves, nor anyone else. A resolute free man is indomitable until the world shift just an inch and his foot is caught and he finds he is indeed alone against the world...and the world always wins in the end.

The banality of evil, how power corruptd those who even mean well, it was an interesting offering the converse of avengers where there were more fantasticsl plots and strategists

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

So Ig, the overall theme of The Prisoner is that you imprison yourself, don't blame others. Fine
But as I recall the final episode was double length and chaotic.
Do you feel the final episode was coherent and the pieces supported the whole?
Also, how does the initial sequence fit? What, symbolically, was he resigning from and why did resigning cause him to placed in The Village?

Narciso

I dont think that was the notion from the beginning
