I've been tutoring the granddaughter of an ex-girlfriend in science and maths. Her 4-year-old brother came in as we were starting, and I was amazed when he said he learned "R" at school today... Then I realised he meant the letter and not the statistical scripting language I use at work. 😍

Re Boston Bridge: The American Society of Civil Engineers last infrastructure report found a significant number of US bridges are structurally unsound:

Yet, the MAGA crowd booed McConnell for thanking Biden for the $$$ to fix bridges in Kentucky.

One interesting name pops out in the Epstein logs that just got released...

I missed out on a job I applied for this week. They asked if I could perform under pressure, but I accidentally started singing Bohemian Rhapsody. 🎶

Have a great Friday, everyone.

We interviewed 1,000 people who have played Russian roulette before. 100% of them survived the game.

Statistical Conclusion:
Russian roulette is entirely safe to play.

Wagner's boss died of food poisoning before being thrown out of a very high window... The plane crash was a cover-up.

I only believe those I've personally made up.

Word of the day:
‘shaffle’ (19th century)
To futz about and dither instead of getting on with the important stuff; to fiddle while Rome burns.

A problem with some "scientific" journals that undermine public confidence in published science.

I've said it before and I will say it again that if you are waiting for me to say it again, remember that I said it before.

For those who think the New World Order is new or has anything to do with the U.N, the US currency has the Latin, "NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM" just underneath the pyramid (New World Order). The founders likely got it from Virgil’s Aeneid, written about 25BC.

Social media has taught me a couple of things. First, there are some incredibly brilliant people in the world. Second, they are vastly outnumbered.

Very disappointed in the Barbie movie.

#Florida’s Record-Breaking Sea Temperatures Affecting #Coral

Story by Catrin Einhorn and Jason Gulley, July 31, 2023

"With #climateChange ravaging Florida’s beloved reef, people who’ve devoted their careers to restoring coral in the sea are now racing to get it out of the water, to tanks on land. They’re pushing through feelings of grief and fear over the future to save what genetic material and young corals they can. But in the background, an existential question looms: How can they restore reefs if the ocean is getting too hot for coral to live there?

"While marine #heatwaves occur naturally, the eye-popping sea temperatures recorded off the Keys this month (one reading hit 101 degrees Fahrenheit, or just over 38 Celsius) have been made worse by global warming, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The world’s oceans have absorbed 90% of the additional heat unleashed by people burning fossil fuels and razing forests. Currently, about 44% of the #global #ocean is in a #heatwave.

"The mass coral bleaching happening throughout the Keys is the most severe in the state’s history, Derek Manzello, the coordinator of NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch program, said. Surveys over the next few months are needed to understand how much coral has died.

"'I fear for the worst,' he said."

Police have charged a 45 year-old man from the Gold Coast with a total of 1623 child abuse offences they allege were committed against 91 children.

Damn... Over 30 hours of research to create five lines of code. Brain fried and looking forward to an early night.

I'm such an idiot. One of the managers where I work is away for the next two weeks, and I decided to recreate my resume and apply to fill the role as practice for applying. My application was successful. Now I'll be doing both jobs for two weeks because they can't do without me in my usual position.

No extra pay, but if I'm successful, it'll be a significant addition to my resume.

A correction: It's not pronounced "ex". It's the platform formerly known as Twitter.
