Last I checked, the rest of the Universe was in good shape. It’s Earth that’s got all the problems.

Finally saw the @netflix  film “Don’t Look Up,” a fictional tale of a Nation distracted by pop-culture and divided on whether to heed dire warnings of scientists. Everything I know about news-cycles, talk shows, social media, & politics tells me the film was instead a documentary

When did it become okay to be more offended by what someone with no power says than by what someone with power does?

You Matter. Unless you multiply yourself by the speed of light squared. Then you Energy.

Imagine how much more advanced society would be today if women, who comprise half the world’s brain power, were socially & intellectually enfranchised from the beginning of civilization.

Dear Science Deniers, (Anti-vaxers, anti-maskers, climate hoaxers, flat-Earthers, etc) You found one another & communicate via stupefyingly advanced technologies that pivot on the discoveries of scientists. Just thought I’d remind you of that fact. Sincerely, Your Smart Phone

Space Aliens may be surprised to learn that Humans have multiple languages & cultures and we kill one another because of it.
