Tsundoku: acquiring reading materials but letting them pile up in one’s home without reading them
The above picture is one of the many things to learn at Neal Agarwal’s “The Deep Sea’ website. Scroll down from the surface and you will see creatures down to the very deepest part of the ocean.
Click on the ‘Neal.fun’ in the upper left to see more interesting animation. The space one is also cool.
SpaceX launched a car into space on February 6, 2018. Some dismissed as a stupid rich guy thing. I enjoyed it immensely. SpaceX is doing remarkable work, with NASA’s help, in getting the space effort going again. Putting the Tesla Roadster, and a space dummy, on a trajectory towards Mars caught the public’s attention. If it helps build awareness and support for more space travel, that is a worthy effort.
So I was thinking about that launch today and was wondering what ever happened to that car. Of course, the internet came to the rescue.
The site is https://www.whereisroadster.com/ and it is constantly updated with the latest information. This site was put up by some guy, not related at all to Tesla and SpaceX.
It is currently going over 11,000 miles per hour.
I think that is awesome.

Came across ‘Scorigami’ the other day. It is a ‘Scorigami!’ when a US Football game ends in a score that has never happened before. The web site https://nflscorigami.com/ gives the current state of them. It is fun to wander around a bit. There is also a baseball one at https://scorigami.danaben.net/t.
There have been at least two Scorigamis this season. The Browns beat the Ravens 40-25 and Tampa Bay beat the Rams 55-40.
This is a list of many things that have been true since the birth of those entering in college this year (thus the ‘Class of 2023’).
This list used to be at the Beloit College website, but they moved it to a different place. The complete list is here: https://www.marist.edu/mindset-list
Here are a few highlights from the list.Continue reading “Class Of 2023 Mindset”
My folks owned a Ford Pinto wagon that eventually came to me. The story about how I got it and what happened to it are lost to my late teen/early 20s memory gaps. The picture in this post is the closest I could find. I don’t even remember what year the car was or what year I got rid of it.
But that Pinto broke in a way that I very much remember.Continue reading “Ford Pinto Wagon – my first car”
