Sync or Swim: The Gyre Ever Widens



As per usual there's more going on out there than I have time to process. I keep trying to chop up these posts into smaller portions but they just keep growing. I'm really harried at the moment, so let me just drop a major deluge of high-grade synchery on you good folks and let you hash it all out while I attend to important business.

Winter is Coming, or There Goes the Sun





Well, it's quite brisk around these parts, my friends. I find it rather invigorating with the sun shining, somewhat less so when it's overcast. And if the trend-lines hold I'll probably have adjusted my opinions rather considerably in a few weeks or so.

All the more so if the Bond-villain schemes spewing out of Harvard University (the time-honored spawning ground of many an aspiring Bond-villain scheme) come to fruition.

Space/Gods: Bennu and the Jets



Lots of activity up in space this week, allegedly. And right on time we have some NASA guy talking about aliens and UFOs, which in turn will be followed by the usual walkbacks and denials. We all know the drill, we've heard it a hundred times before. It's how the NASA nerds get their little jollies.

I mean, I think it's kind of tired but the government doesn't give me tens of billions of dollars to piss away every year, do they?

PseudoScience Friday: Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Someday




Well, the P.T. Barnum Memorial Permanent Moon Base Roadshow pulled into town again and performed its song and dance for bored reporters. I'm not sure why this old saw was pulled out of the toolbox but it seems to me this act plays to smaller crowds every time it takes the stage.

Guess it's true. You can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Apocalyptic Talking Points: Roko's Basilisk




If the reports are to be believed, a Chinese scientist created the first gene-edited babies and of course they're Twins. Twin girls, to be precise. 

The only people caught off guard by all this are those poor, benighted souls who don't read The Secret Sun. I'm thinking of starting a GoFundMe for them.

The Ice Age is Coming, the Sun's Zooming In


I woke up this morning and my phone informed me that it was 12ºF outside. I think that roughly translates to -70ºC or something.

I dunno, I kinda suck at math. But I think you get the idea.

Sync or Swim: The Moon and the Maladies



You've probably seen some articles on this bizarre advertisement for Celine Dion's (literally: "Moon Goddess") new gender-neutral clothing line. It's every bit as weird and unsettling as you heard it was, but guess what? It's 2018 and this is where we are now.
