Following morganth is not for everyone.

People who are allergic to BODY ONCE TOLD ME jokes should not follow morganth.

Side effects of following morganth may include mild amusement, bafflement, and reinforcement of the stereotype that people who live in can’t shut up about NYC.

Ask your doctor if following morganth is right for you.

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. But googling it just turns up stuff about Nash equilibria in statically noisy environments which is totally different.

I’m heartbroken over Notre Dame. It survived so much history.

TIL about the most isolated populated island in the world. Sounds like an interesting place.

Why do people equate “infinite number of universes” with “every possibility is true out there somewhere?” There are infinite real numbers between 0 and 1, but not one of them is 2.

Today I came across one of those little free libraries in the West Village (), and it had the book “Interstellar Pig” by William Sleator, and I was so tempted to take it home. That was one of my favorite books when I was a kid.

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.

“Play it Loud” at the is pretty amazing. Not so much as an art exhibit but as a historical archive. I got to see the actual instruments that a lot of my favorite songs were played on. If you’re , don’t miss it.

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?

“Captain Marvel” was the first movie that has made me teary-eyed with the production company logo. It’s the usual Studios logo, but...well, it’s very sweet and respectful.

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,
