Cerro Torre ascent 1959. Nearby Monte Fitz Roy still "remains among the most technically challenging mountains on Earth for mountaineers."
Evidence argues against a 1959 ascent of Cerro Torre in Patagonia.

Noise and light pollution are serious issues. For a nice summary of what it means to stay for two days in one of the quietest places on earth, read: http://www.zeit.de/2014/16/grasslands-nationalpark-kanada-saskatchewan

One of the things I miss most in NYC is the stars. The night skies above Zion National Forest are a wonder -- themselves alone worth the trip...

Beautiful: on "Bounded Gaps Between Primes"

From the article: "You have to take my word, because even to a serious mathematician this would be difficult to explain. Zhang understood the techniques deeply enough so as to be able to modify Bombieri-Friedlander-Iwaniec and cross this bridge. This is the most significant thing about what he has done mathematically. He’s made the Bombieri-Friedlander-Iwaniec technique about the distribution of prime numbers a tool for any kind of study of primes. A development that began in the eighteen-hundreds continued through him.”

(The Super Karamazov Bros. cartoon is an extra goodie!)

"The scrolls of Herculaneum, the only classical library still in existence, were blasted by volcanic gas hotter than 300C and are desperately fragile. Deep inside one scroll, physicists distinguished the ink from the paper using a 3D X-ray imaging technique sometimes used in breast scans."

"The team began experimenting with Morse code using various percussion instruments and a keyboard. They learned that operators skilled in Morse code can often read the signals at a rate of 40 words per minute — but played that fast, the beat would sound like a European Dance track. 'We discovered the magic number was 20,' says Portela. 'You can fit approximately 20 Morse code words into a piece of music the length of a chorus, and it sounds okay.'"

Story
Tagline
"The future will find you out. The future, wielding unimaginable tools of transparency, will have its way with you."
Introduction
I work in communications at a large academic medical center in the Northeast. If need be, I am also trained to perform an emergency deconstruction of any kind of text or image. 
Bragging rights
I usually find a parking space. (This field used to be called "my super power," which sounds much more modest and pleasing than "bragging rights.") Also, the above à propos quotation on how the future will have its way with you is courtesy of William Gibson, 2003.
