One of the traps of the modern age, kickstarter projects that can't possibly succeed because they violate the laws of thermodynamics. I stumbled on several Thunderf00t videos recently debunking at least three different projects who which where all essentially re-inventing the dehumidifier. All of them made impossible claism aobut how much water they could produce with how little power.

Today was a perfectly cool day, ideal for some woodworking. So what happened? I slipped on my way to the shed and rammed my thumb into a post, I can move it, so its not broken,but its definatly brused and hurts like hell. There went my woodworking plans :(

So I watched episode 1 of the Orville and episode 1 of Discovery. I think I might check out episode 2 of the Orville. As for Discovery, I think I'll pass, it just didn't grab me at all, it was too dark, too slow and the reimaging of an established franchise was just too jarring, nothing looked right.

I hate it when sci-fi stories try to explain how something works and come up with an answer that is known to be wrong. The Honourverse has short range FTL communication that works on gravitational pulses. Except that it is known that gravity propagates at the speed of light, so their gravitational pulses would not give them FTL communication.

I Recently read the Black Witch by Laurie Forrest. I picked it up after hearing about the twitter storm surrounding it. And what I found was that said twitter storm was entirely without merit. Yes this book does deal with fantasy racism. But in no way does it endorse it. Rather it condens it as we watch the main character slowly, break free from childhood indoctrination and become part the resistance.

I really wanted to like Valerian, but now that I've seen it, it was the OK, but it was no Fifth Element, and some of the dialoge was really, really bad.

Question: Can you lose a contact lens in your eye?
Answer:: Scarily yes. I lost my lens about 2 weeks ago. I thought it was still in there so I went to an optometrist. He examined my eye and swore that there was definitely no sign of it. It just popped out into my finger a few minutes ago. So yeah I'm a little freaked out by this.
