    We didn't find it until 40 days after perihelion? It had already passed Earth's orbit and was quite a bit of the way out to Mars's orbital. Ugh. Can we never let this happen again?

I don't think it is, but f it is first contact. we're just sitting here watching and pointing at it as it's flying past pointing and going "ooooooh"....

Here's hoping we're better prepared for second contact.

We're constantly discovering new things we can't explain or understand about space, the universe in general, even our own solar system. To me it feels like true hubris to assume it's evidence of anything other than our lack of knowledge about the universe and how it works. We've just discovered something else we can't explain. WHoop de doo - add it to the list.

The chickens are coming.

I absolutely love the new Spaitialize album - Beyond the Radar. It's been a long time since a new discovery had such an immediate impact on me.

    The words “dream job” come up whenever I tell people about the 52 Places project.

I think only by people who haven't spent much time in transit. Constant travel is exhausting both physically and mentally.

    In an artificial life simulation where survival required energy but giving birth had no energy cost, one species evolved a sedentary lifestyle that consisted mostly of mating in order to produce new children which could be eaten (or used as mates to produce more edible children).

I'm laughing and crying.

    When repairing a sorting program, genetic debugging algorithm GenProg made it output an empty list, which was considered a sorted list by the evaluation metric.

    Evaluation metric: “the output of sort is in sorted order”

    Solution: “always output the empty set”

The AI version of YAGNI in Test Driven Developement ... write just enough code to pass the test.

Sure, but you're supposed to write more tests!

Still on my acid quest. So far Kick.S is really doing the best and plenty of material :)

So... acid for Xmas lunch tomorrow: Kick.S - Acid 2018

There's no base case. It's just Knuths ... all the way down.

How many was? How many beans make 5? A bean, a bean, a half a bean, a bean and a half and a bean. Good by horse.

I don't have a picture of it sadly, but there used to be some fantastic graffiti where I lived, on the wall of the Zion Arts Centre, in half-metre high scrawl: Drugs n anything

I'm so glad Adult Swim is able to put out things like this or Unedited footage of a bear - the infomercial whether I personally like it or not I think it's really healthy for it to be widely available.

I mean it hands down beats having to watch a copy of a copy of a copy of a bootleg Eraserhead VHS - which is how I first saw it.
