The End of American Exceptionalism

Conservatives are right: The attitudes they say make America special—religiosity, patriotism, and mobility—are fading. And it has nothing to do with Barack Obama.

It’s long. And I read the whole thing.

A painting is like an introverted TV

Paintings in a pub. 

Not that the hockey makes you dumb, the opposite actually, it demands so much of your faculties that you have to concentrate. That’s the down side of TV: no more head room left for people and such. 
A painting never changes. Come and go as you like. It demands nothing, though rewards your attention too.

Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?High five, America!


oh my god

bitch that’s the tubby custard machine


im crying

OMFG THIS POST FINALLY MADE IT TO MY DASHBOARD IM CRYING

"bitch that’s the tubby custard machine"
10,000 years from now on the dawn of a new civilization where we are all just brains in jars flying spaceships through the vast unknowable void, i will still be laughing my ass off at “bitch that’s the tubby custard machine”. this i vow.

I’ll get used to living in Santa Cruz eventually. But right now I still love a good fact check.

physicsphysics:
An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t

(I may have posted this before…)
This animation is perfect.
I watched BBC’s great ‘Wonders of the Universe’ series in which the guy described gravity/space/time/stuff as objects in space falling into or being pulled into the space behind lager objects.
This gif does a great job of visualizing that. True information design.

Which apparently is wrong too. Why am I going though my old posts?

That sets a whole new perspective on things,

I’m a commuter now. By car. A couple steps forward, and a step back.

Our conclusion then is that life is continually arriving to Earth from space, life is not restricted to this planet and it almost certainly did not originate here.
