Yep, Wilson is 76 today while Jet Black will be 80 in August if he lasts that long.

That there exists a site full of subtitle files giving a 5 sec warning of Jump scares in horror films

Interesting, but considering the quality of horror movies being churned out nowadays supposedly containing jump scares, I hardly think necessary.
Maybe there should be a voiceover 5 seconds before a "jump scare", saying something like:
"WAKE UP, THERE A JUMP SCARE IN A FEW SECONDS!!"
Just because I have a short attention span doesn't mean I...what kind of rock is that?

I thought something the same, especially as the music usually alerts you anyway, and that only one jump scare per film has any real effect.

Shouldn't there be a bus first?

I love that scene, and I love that film: but it seems - in my memory at any rate - to be one of those shocks for the viewer alone, and that the character, having a different and wider point of view, would have seen it coming. Still a good one though.

And I also love the bit where he goes to where she's living for the first time and is confronted by a wide sweeping staircase, and says, It's amazing what you find in these old Brownstones.

Right, but I mean "bus" is the generic term for the scare before the scare, the one that turns out to be nothing. It is a great movie though, Cat People it was I'm pretty sure?

Yes, Cat People (the proper one).

Isn't the generic term a Lewton Bus?

I’ve got a full set of them up in the loft - they were my Dads.
Used to flick through them as a lad, hoping for the odd naked women - which there often was... albeit with a lot of science talk about ovums or some such. Still, closest I had to Playboy.

I remember seeing them too. Can't think where and this is the first time since then (early 70s?) that I have thought of the magazine. Nice memory jolt.

The great recycling admission.
I knew a lot got dumped in the channel and the Mafia burried a lot. But to admit there's no traceability usually points to more than even hinted at here !

When making coffee of the instant variety, they take the smell out at the start - then add it back in just before it goes in the jar.

Sounds like what they do for 'freshly squeezed' orange juice but in that case they take everything out and then add back to water to sell as fresh.

In the future, robots will harvest cannabis and then have sex with you.

And then come the monkeys enslaved by robots.

Next, enslaved monkeys interbreeding with humans, supervised by the robots. 

Then the master race, the decision to eradicate once and for all the pestilence of humanity.
