…at least briefly. I’m starting a entry on what happened and why after I finish typing this up, but I can finally use the right hand without pain again. Two weeks of forced TV viewing has finally come to an end. I thought I was going to lose my mind. At least I still had my podcasts to keep the mind busy in between binge watching all of Better Call Saul, Altered Carbon, Man in the High Castle and finally finishing the HBO series The Pacific. I’ll probably have time to at least start Electric Dreams before I’m fully recovered.
Two of the greatest scientific achievements of my lifetime made the news during the weeks I was recuperating.
Reality provides us with facts so romantic that imagination itself could add nothing to them.Jules Verne, the SGU quote of the week.
I think that is appropriate given this episode. I mean we have a picture of a black hole, what’s more awesome than that?
…Except maybe fossils from the day the dinosaurs died.Steven Novella
So I’m pretty happy to still be here to ponder which of those two achievements is the more important one.
