A friendly reminder that the Church of Scientology is despicable, and is neither church nor scientific. Tell your friends.
Next we have Scientific American – which is, in fact, scientific – and a fascinating article on the search for alien supercivilizations. Also: did you know Freeman Dyson, the guy who came up with the Dyson Sphere idea, is still alive? And evidently still doing interviews. Kickass.
Fun facts for the editing-obsessed (who, me?): disabling MS Word’s annoying Paste Options box, the history of the comma (serial and otherwise), and a delightfully thorough investigation of the singular “they.”
Hope your weekend is Type III or higher on the Kardashev scale! See you Monday.
