epi-tome probably rhymes with like epic tome
I recently found out garish was pronounced “gare-ish” and NOT “garr-ish”.
I just reject all pronunciations that differ from mine.
They're re-doing Doctor Who, ignoring Russel T Davies and Moffat's takes on the series and starting from scratch to do a Doctor Who movie, directed by David Yates -
What if they cast Daniel Radcliffe as the Doctor and Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as companions.
Harry Potter and the blue box
Doctor Who and the Philospher’s Stone
I can totally picture it.
Harry Potter and the Master’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of the Timelords
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Moffat
Harry Potter and the Order of the Doctor
Harry Potter and the Half-blood Meta-Crisis Doctor

Western black rhino declared extinct
A sad day, as it’s believed that no wild black rhinos remain. We have poachers and bush medicine to thank for this tragedy:
“You’ve got to imagine an animal walking around with a gold horn; that’s what you’re looking at, that’s the value and that’s why you need incredibly high security.”
(via BBC News)
“According to the UN Environment Programme, the Earth is in the midst of a mass extinction of life. Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours. This is nearly 1,000 times the “natural” or “background” rate…” - Protect Nature for World Economic Security, Warns UN Biodiversity Chief
“And while the fossil record tells us that biodiversity has always recovered, it also tells us that the recovery will be unbearably slow in human terms — 5 to 10 million years after the mass extinctions of the past. That’s more than 200,000 generations of humankind before levels of biodiversity comparable to those we inherited might be restored.” - The Current Mass Extinction
Looking up more resources on extinction; 200 seems an huge estimate, but they seem to range from 75 animal extinctions a day, to almost 400 animal extinctions a day.
