Breakthroughs are products of the many lab assistants' hard and repetitive work. Yet, they don't get the credit in many instances.
I've seen lab technicians be treated like slaves just so the so called geniuses could provide material for that prestigious paper. It was one of the reasons I didn't go for that PhD.

Brewing some honey goodness!

Put in some meade on the 27th and been watching it bubble/ferment. Bubbling has been less the last two days, so today I added some extra honey. The brew started bubbling vigorously again, so let's hope it gets nice taste and strong in the alcohol department.

Beware of Images

In 1929, the Belgian artist Rene Magritte created The Treachery of Images. The painting showed a pipe, and under it the paradoxical inscription This is not a pipe. When it was pointed out to him that what he had created was in fact a pipe, Magritte replied "OK, you should try filling it with tobacco then". Stated 10 years before the infamous WWII propaganda campaigns, Magritte's warning was clear: Beware of the seductive and deceptive power of images

Religious institutions, governments and corporations have mastered this power and exploit it to advance their interests. Unfortunately, these practices are at the root of today's social, ecological and financial problems; and as representation technologies become more sophisticated, their sources more centralized and their reach broader, the problems are bound to become more challenging.

Nice watch for those long insomniac nights. I can recommend it.

Amazing to see how he learns by watching; we never let him cut things or play with a real stove but still he manages to mimic to near perfection.

Just back from hanging with the guys of Drone Racing Curaçao. +Heinrich Angela​ was imparting some wisdom after which they took to the air for some training. Good times.
