Link. Strings passé
Link. I thought they’d abandoned bicycle directions. Apple certainly has.
Link. Women should not be worrying at this time. A well done and sober review.
Link. Don’t pay for cable. Comcast funds Carlson.
Link. Only in America. Ok, maybe Russia too.
Link. GOP may he disappointed.
Link. The Kakeya conjecture is far beyond my ken, yet a fragment of the implications remind one of Zeno’s paradox. And … “prime or not prime, and what way it’s not prime, has a big effect”
Link. Iran joins North Korea.
Link. More evidence. Absolute assholes the lot of them.
Link. I was stuck in Nashville’s Grand-Old Opry for 3 days. Staged an escape with 4 others. OTOH I think there are people who will like this. At first.
Link. Scientific disaster, but Lesné’s fraud actually had a limited impact on patients. It never led to any trials.
Link. Photos for Mac album sharing. “Apple has reportedly known about this bug for at least two years.”
Link. Bill Clinton’s DMCA is why Apple FairPlay works. Also, Amazon is bad to the bone.
Link. How to destroy a nation.
Link. Too much money, not enough to do.
Link. English of 30s-40s movies.
Link. A useful review to the latest in a long series of American panic attacks. Roots in Judith Reisman’s homophobia (she was extreme).
Link. Fun to see how wrong I am in 5-10y. This does influence how I adjust my COVID risks.
Link. Rough guess and crummy by Delta standards but glad I got it. Obviously most smart people dying today will have been vaccinated.
Link. HCR shares an impressive list of Biden admin achievements. Top secret apparently.
Link. Aviation as a mirror of civilization. Dynamic stability.
Link. A sufficiently large block of granite contains all possible sculpture. Also all writing. Like Sabine, I think The block universe has to be considered.
Link. Capitalism will find a way to prey on the weak. If not UC then Amway or Scientology or Trump or (once) Rome. There will always be something.
Link. If output is supply constrained does decreased demand reduce employment?
Link. Drag them into an Outlook email body and they become vcf attachments.
Link. St Paul. We need to sue for a recall.
Link. Nothing special. “Italy may well represent the West’s future. And it’s bleak.”
Link. Grown-ups don’t do sarcasm. (Irony is fine.)
Link. UMN. Epic fraud if true. Would merit decades of prison. If true.
PubPeer is heroic.
Link. Only the good die young.
Link. Things are bad when David Brooks sounds like a 90s socialist.
Link. I’ve done similar. Mercifully not on a national platform.
Link. Fascinating. The fact that protests are easier to create means they overstate the political power behind them.
Link. Bug most likely. Damn.
Link. Good analysis of K error.
Link. Fair enough. By now everyone should understand the risks.
Link. This is a microcosm of America 2022. We can’t fix it all.
Link. Good she learned this.
Link. We used to laugh at things like this.
Link. Democracies are fragile.
Link. This is so disappointing.
Link. Complete failure.
Link. Very cool. I subscribe. I remember when The Atlantic was near death.
Link. I’d like to know more about the hunger he feeds. Also, Instagram.
Link. 91! She was made for the 60s.
Link. At my age I have only 2-3 left.
Link. A fairly common failure mode and one reason to favor inductive charging and Bluetooth headphone. Apple will often give full trade-in credit ($165) or charge $400+ for a refurb replacement (fresh battery). 3rd part might be $150.
