I still think his babbling makes about as much sense as some kids I’ve met at preschool but in context this actually makes some semblance of sense. Am I safer with the boat or the shark?

I think, anyway… I’m deep into happy hour after a mentally taxing work day, on next to no sleep. So there’s that..

I know there are a few companies working on DNA storage. From the comment below about the entirety of Wikipedia and Wiki Commons, I’d say that’d be a pretty practical thing to store.

Here’s the wiki article about it.

Took me a few reads but I fixed my error. This clearly wouldn’t happen if I were Vulcan or Romulan.

Come to think of it, an episode about a typo would be onpoint for Lower Decks and Boimler.

If there’s one thing certain about shuttles is that they’re about as dangerous as a red shirt.

That said, man, I’d love to have one of those! Practical geekiness is the best geekiness.

What’s the saying about dying a hero or becoming the villain?

My dream vote goes to Pete B. Though I’d guess they save him for a Presidential run.

Anyone have resources for finding book summary pdfs? I have Blinkist already.

I am interested in Shortform but they never run any discounts. Their summaries are fantastic.

My god. This deliciously tasty excerpt:

In various campaign biographies, a résumé and interviews, Mr. Santos said he graduated from Baruch College in New York City, where he was a volleyball star on a championship team. He boasted of working at Citigroup and Goldman Sachs and amassing personal wealth. He claimed to be descended from Holocaust refugees; that his mother was in the World Trade Center during the Sept. 11 attacks; and that he lost four employees in the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.

None of those claims were true.

The part of the speech that was removed:

“History isn’t history anymore. Truth is not truth. Even facts are being replaced by alternative facts and driven by conspiracy theories and ugliness. In Florida, young students are taught that slaves developed skills which can be applied for their personal benefit.

The entertainment industry isn’t immune to this festering disease. The Duke, John Wayne, famously said of Native Americans, ‘I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.’

Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal. The former president lied to us more than 30,000 times during his four years in office, and he’s keeping up the pace in his current campaign of retribution. But with all his lies, he can’t hide his soul. He attacks the weak, destroys the gifts of nature, and shows disrespect, for example, by using ‘Pocahontas’ as a slur.”

Meanwhile:

The actor appeared onstage at the ceremony on Monday night for the presentation of the Gotham Historical Icon and Creator Tribute to Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon, a film distributed by Apple that focuses on a series of murders targeting the Osage people in Oklahoma during the 1920s after oil was discovered on tribal land.

My. God. The pearl clutching and oppression of the female body these days. We may as well go back to corsets and chastity belts.

I’m not going to encourage a HSer to twerk, but c’mon! You’re going to punish her for having fun at an unrelated and offsite event? Get real.

I’m discovering levels of brown nosing I’d never have thought to exist.
