Goodbye Hitch

You freed up a lot of minds during your short stay. Thank you for that. And for seeming brave through it all.

Dogs and Cats

What if Pavlov had used a cat?
What if Schrodinger had used a dog?

dinner with a new friend

he asks... so what's your favorite sports team, to which i answer, i'm not really a sports guy. he seemed perplexed by this answer, like I had just said I didn't believe in god, or i was a vegan or something.

Camping out!

I love these post-rapture stories that start off claiming that the problem was that Camping's math was incorrect! No! No! No! The problem is that the entire story is wrong. Take a fairy story to start with and inject some numerology into it and it can't get any more wrong! And you want to try to add precision to that by taking into account leap seconds? Puh-leeze people!

There's no rapture - except for the story that helps sell all those fantasy books. Because in the end, it's all about having a good story to tell so they keep coming back for more.

BTW, there's no Bilbo Baggins either.
