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. That said, after actually seeing their astrological charts, it is (as you will see) amazing how much they line up with the current transits, and upon realizing that it was Johnny Depp's birthday yesterday (at the time of me writing this), I just couldn't resist writing about it now that I finally have some free time.

'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Trailer Gives Us First Look At Darth Vader
With the release of the official trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi on May 4th, we have been given some exciting first looks at our favorite villain in the Star Wars universe. Of course, it is none other than the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Lord Vader. A fan favorite since 1977 during the opening moments of A New Hope, Vader has captivated fans for over thirty years. It is no surprise that Disney has been giving sparse details about his appearance in the new show streaming later this month. But what role will he play in the show given what we have seen of the former Jedi Knight and current Sith Lord?
How 'Kenobi' Can Explain Where Obi-Wan's Nickname Came From
One of the major reasons I loved Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was its ability to re-contextualize A New Hope right from the opening crawl. The crawl mentions rebel spies winning their first battle against the evil Galactic Empire and how spies stole secret plans for their ultimate weapon, the Death Star. For me, watching the opening scene of A New Hope directly after watching Rogue One is maybe my favorite Star Wars thing to do because they connect so well.
