    What Are You Reading?

    I've been working through a few different things lately, including one or two mentioned here. The most recent addition to the finished pile is Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper. If that name's familiar to you, it probably means you have some knowledge of the workings of the Westboro Baptist...

    Are Circular Runways the Future of Aviation?

    That Popular Science article is about an actual US Airforce trial that returned positive results. Pilots found neither takeoffs nor landings particularly troublesome, so it's clear the idea isn't a complete fantasy. That's not to say there aren't problems with the idea. Those trials were back...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    I feel you. With all the fires raging across the Sydney basin right now, I think there's been three days in the last fortnight where it hasn't smelled of smoke and you could actually see the sky.

    Fuck cancer. Seriously, fuck cancer so much.

    network The Good Place Renewed For Season 4

    I don't think it's unfair to say, that unlike Benioff and Weiss, Michael Schur seems to have a solid understanding of what he's doing and a respect for the story that runs deeper than "wouldn't that be awesome!"

    I watched the entire thing

    Shaun is generally a Must Watch Youtuber for me. But damn, when that popped up in my feed and I saw the runtime... I might have to watch it over four or five sessions.

    The end of the Neanderthals

    I dunno. I think the large brains, leading to (for placental mammals) a relatively early birth, leading to intensive parental involvement in upbringing and high energy costs, is more than enough explanation for our litter size. Granted, I don't even play a biologist on television, but humans...

    Political discussion on VVO

    The one thing I really don't like about the XenForo software is the way it retains unfinished and/or unposted replies. On the old board, if I changed my mind about a post before hitting reply, I could navigate away from the page and my reconsidered words would be lost to the ether. In XenForo...

    Greedy Smith, Mental as Anything founder, has died

    Mental as Anything were a pillar of the Australian musical landscape when I was growing up. This is a sad day. Mental As Anything's 'Greedy' Smith dies aged 63

    These are probably the finest chocolate related confection ever come out of the USA.

    The end of the Neanderthals

    "Species" is kind of a slippery delineation, there are all sorts of questions that can arise when trying to classify organisms and the answers are rarely cut and dried. I suggest googling (the) "species problem" if you want some decent insights into how much of a mess it really is. Just on...

    The end of the Neanderthals

    At the risk of getting into some weird and uncomfortable conversations about at what exact point the term rape becomes meaningful, nature in general is pretty rapey. Forced sex happens all the time. There's lots of examples of species wherein the females have developed strategies for dealing...

    Nobody cares about food.

    I dunno, leaving aside what it's called for a moment, thinking about how it might actually eat, I'm a little intrigued. I mean I wouldn't touch that supermarket version, it'd no doubt be trash, but I think I might try this recipe sometime.

    Eggplant brownies

    Depending how you cook it, eggplant can have a pretty mild taste. I can see it being overwhelmed by a more robust flavour like chocolate.

    #JAILTOTHECHIEF- Shit Just Got Real

    Most people have. The problem isn't that people don't know he's stupid. The problem is they either don't care, or worse, they consider his stupidity a bonus.

    Dipping My Toe in Mesh

    One thing I do like about the onionskin layering of the mesh bodies is the way the clothing layers don't exactly conform to body proper. It wasn't really an issue with system bodies, but these days we have details that aren't going to look that great with baked on clothes. BoM is going to be...

    network Days Of Our Lives Cancellation Is Likely

    I watched the video up to the point where they discuss it. My point still stands.
