And yes, I know that I sound like a total snob with "the cheese is unremarkable", but really, I love very strongly flavored cheeses, and this cheese plate is the opposite of that. Obviously on purpose, and I don't blame them--it appeals to a lot more people this way.

Has anyone studied if Nash equilibria exist for party/bar noise? It makes intuitive sense. You want to be loud enough to be heard by the people around you, so if one group is particularly loud then everyone else has to match them to optimize.

This photo of Dr Bouman deserves to be one of the classic images in physics. Amazing to capture the first glimpse. Such a genuine response
Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press.
Amazing work. And here’s to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) 💥🔥☄️
I don’t know why Sir Ian thinks it’s comfortable to sleep like this, but it’s awfully cute.
It’s kind of funny, though, that Captain Marvel and Captain Marvel both have movies in the theater at the same time. And both movies have Djimon Hounsou in them. Did they plan this?
Fun fact: #Amazon urls completely ignore the human-readable part in the middle, as well as all the tracking junk tacked-on at the end. The only thing that matters is the ID after the /dp/ part of the url. So, you can do, for example,

Gomez: Morticia, how long has it been since we’ve waltzed?
I'm a storyteller in both my personal and my professional lives. Expect weird musings and cute cat pictures.
