So this was kind of weird. The school sent home a permission slip for the kids asking if it was OK if they viewed the solar eclipse next term.

Now the last line implies that they'll be making pinhole projectors and/or using mylar filters to view it, and not just having school children stare at the sun until they go blind, so I can't figure out why they would want or need permission for this.

Are there religious implications I don't know about? Do the Methodists not believe in solar eclipses? Or do the Baptists think solar eclipses are the devil?

I'm not much of a non-fiction person, and this book did a whole lot of meandering. Still, it was totally interesting to read about Roald Dahl's work during WWII.

Fun little javascript game. The only goal is ... to achieve a stable orbit.

So I watched Ghost in the Shell last night. Meh. It wasn't great, but it wasn't completely terrible either. I have to say that it was just like the 1995 anime: a mindless action film in a cyberpunk setting with a forgettable plot that's all just a pretense for gratuitous fan service.

As to the whitewashing... I don't think it would much matter for the Major—I'd imagine the scientists created plenty of other robot bodies in the shape of Japanese pop idols, and now it was just time for the ScarJo model—but man, outside of the "yakuza" there were only like 3 Japanese people in the entire nation of Japan.

I'm reading HR 1628 right now. Holy shit, they're not even trying to make it sound good. They're straight up saying: "We're cutting funding to these very useful programs." Wow.

I always thought it was weird that people called twitter a "social network." IMHO, twitter is about as social as graffiti on the wall of a public restroom. The interaction is pretty limited. Mostly it's just someone who wrote "your mom's a whore," followed by someone else who wrote, "no, your mom's a whore," beneath it.

Except with twitter it's hard to find that reply or, more often than not, you only see the reply.

Mastodon is pretty much the same. However, unlike the restroom wall at twitter, there are no swastikas, racial slurs, or crudely drawn pictures of genitals.* So while being pretty much the same, it's also so so much better.

* - At least for now. Most instances share mastodon.social's "Nazi punks fuck off" ToS, but internet scum could easily start their own instances where they allow garbage to join. The cool thing, though, is that the other instances can just say, "sorry" and not federate with those troll instances.
