A week's gone by? Might as well throw up my favorite music video:
I just can't do it this year. The idiots that support Trump make the idiots that supported Bush look like pikers. I have an anti-Trump sticker on my car and I've been given the finger and cut off on the road over and over again, and this is Rhode Island! USA is filled with morons. I'm depleted.
Can't believe I'm saying this, but I downloaded the Pokemon Go app and am half-heartedly playing. Biomes is a Pokemon Gym and my mural is a Pokemon Stop. Every day people are camped out in my parking lot collecting their items and fighting the boss (or whatever it's called) that resides in my place.
Randal Monroe is the creator of the web comic xkcd (If you have problems understanding his comics you can always consult Explain XKCD). He also has a site called What If?, which gives serious scientific answers to absurd hypothetical questions. He's worth checking in on once in a while. This one, about what a rainbow would look like on Earth if the Earth had two suns (a binary star system) like on Tatooine, is one of my favorites. Kind of links up to my essay on polar bears, if you can believe it. That diary is an old one on Kos, and the images have been lost with the failure of me keeping up with my image hosting on the site ImageShack.
We put Hank the octopus from Finding Dory in with Obi to see what he'd do. He checked it out and turned brilliant purple, which is a color I've never seen before and I believe indicates confusion. He got bored with the toy pretty quickly.
Below is a map of the only places left in the U.S. where you can see the Milky Way Galaxy. Because of permanent "skyglow", caused by light pollution from cities, 80% of Americans can no longer see this feature of the night sky, as well as a third of the entire world's population.
