Current mood: still angry at the Universe, but maybe slightly less so

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Judge people by their actions, not by their self-described sociopolitical alignments.

I need some catharsis today. Someone recommend me some angry music

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which Iโ€™ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, donโ€™t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

Can people please stop talking about Halloween while it's still fucking September?

I know we live in a capitalist hellscape which starts rubbing things in our faces months in advance so they can sell us cheap plasticcy crap that we'll very quickly forget even exists, completely destroying what was once a fun celebration with deep cultural undertones. But that doesn't mean you have to do it too.
