Valerian: Visually stunning, occasional corny dialog and definitely some wooden acting by the two leads (and zero chemistry between the two).
It's as if Luc Besson said, "You two know Keanu Reeves? That's the kind of acting I want. It's befitting a great sci-fi movie."
:) That being said, I'd probably watch it again sometime.

Are your eclipse glasses safe? Here's how to tell. https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety

"Plan ahead to decide if you’re going to make use of an indirect viewing method – more information below – or to watch the eclipse directly by using eclipse glasses. If the latter, please check the safety authenticity of viewing glasses to ensure they meet basic proper safety viewing standards.

Eclipse viewing glasses and handheld solar viewers should meet all the following criteria:
Have certification information with a designated ISO 12312-2 international standard
Have the manufacturer’s name and address printed somewhere on the product
Not be used if they are older than three years, or have scratched or wrinkled lenses
Not use homemade filters or be substituted for with ordinary sunglasses -- not even very dark ones -- because they are not safe for looking directly at the Sun"

The debate continues. Is a lot of our DNA junk or not?

"...if most of our DNA is functional, we would accumulate a large proportion of harmful mutations in important sequences. But if most of our DNA is junk, the majority of mutations would have no effect."
