Don’t forget how Starlink helped Ukraine since the beginning of the War
At the start of the Ukraine-Russia war, I recall how Elon quickly supported Ukraine by shipping Starlink within two days. This after a viral tweet from Ukraine's vice prime minister asking Elon for Starlink support which arrived two days later. This greatly helped Ukraine's military internet communications after these were targeted by Russia.
Star Wars Andor Is Upon Us
While there still isn't a lot that we know about the series, it's been described as a taught spy thriller, in space. From what we saw in Star Wars: Rogue One, Diego Luna brings a compelling character to life in the form of the rebellious Cassian Andor. As the series got a second season before we even knew it was headed to a fall premiere, this should be a Star Wars adventure that will leave fans both happy and wanting more.

This is a story for the Vocal “New Worlds Challenge” which you can find out about below. “Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say.”
My 998 love lives
Nobody can hear a scream in the vacuum of space, or so they say. Lying in this bathtub floating in space, I smell burnt flesh and see my bones fusing to the molten lava, my arteries and veins dissolving into metal as I shriek in horror. Help me, Yrsan! I can't feel my torso, my jaw ruptures, my nose is disintegrating, my eyes catch visions of the void before sinking, and I am deliquescing and becoming one with the metal.
Why I’ll Never Return To Physical Books
I never enjoyed reading. I used to go to the library, buy a book, get the dopamine rush of spending money and place the book on my desk, where it stand for weeks. It was constantly haunting me because I was just staring at it, touching and looking through pages, but never actually reading it.

The Statistical Drake Equation:
Abstract The creation of the Drake Equation by Frank Drake was viewed with skeptical criticism by fellow scientists because the numbers which he used for the variables in the formula were far too optimistic to be true. If they were true, we should have already established contact with extraterrestrial life a long time ago. But when we look out into the endless expanse above us, filled with vast resources and beautiful galaxies, stars, constellations and nebulae, we can see nothing that would suggest a space faring, communicative civilization. No evidence for them at all to ever exist. Of course, this brings into question the Fermi Paradox, formulated by Enrico Fermi. According to Frank Drake’s calculations, there should be at least 36 technologically advanced alien civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy capable of establishing contact with us. However, this number was calculated using incredibly optimistic numbers.
What Astrology Tells Me About the Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Verdict
People had asked me to write an analysis on the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial. I couldn't because I was too busy, and quite frankly, I was trying (and failing) to avoid the whole thing because on a personal level, I found it too triggering.
