    Sorry to side track with the conversation about knowing things about NK. But this really irked me. Supposedly the kids all like this teacher. But how can she lack the common sense to not know this would land her in trouble? Maybe she should have sought help instead of man handling her student.

    Uh the blog writer might want to look up what "violates" means when you use it like that. Because holy crap did I think I was about to read about something else entirely...

    It was South Carolina, but to me they're pretty equal.

    If we could go back in time to pick one of the 13 colonies to cut out of the picture entirely I would pick SC in a heartbeat. Charleston was the entry point of lots of bad mojo.

    Spoiler for musings:


    Spoiler:
    As a South Carolinian, I feel the need to apologize for my state. Ever since the 2016 election, I have felt a profound sadness. My aunts and uncles fully embrace the rhetoric of the right calling for the death of liberals. It is treasonous to be a liberal; conservative media has poisoned their minds. I know there are a lot of assholes in our state just know that there are people hoping to change it.


    Anyway, as a structural biologist, I'm rather giddy about this one:

    Cryo-EM structure of substrate-bound human telomerase holoenzyme: An enzyme involved in cancer and aging gets a close-up

    I don't work on telomerase specifically, as I work mostly in drug discovery, but I'm very happy we have a relatively clear structure of telomerase

    Not so giddy about this:

    Additionally, there is an evacuation in Hawaii as Kilauea erupts

    Conspiracy theories are interesting especially when they seem to line up. But I'll think much less of Kanye if he's doing this because he's an "artist."

    Kanye is an idiot narcissist crazy person and has been for a long while. There's very little mysterious about any of this.

    I dunno. I never would expect this level of thought from him.

    He's certainly got a good read on what he can say that will maximize outrage.

    Must be grateful times to be someone who makes a living out of controversy

    I try to act like I don't care. I kind of don't but the motherland calls:

    https://www.caracaschronicles.com/20...-20-elections/

    Next election, with Maduro, who promises to fix all the issues that he created, some protestant sheepard/priest (as a catolic country we don't do well with other christian denominations, or religions), and three different flavors of ex-chavista.

    Main opposition, and main resistance didn't field any candidate, as I believe they should.

    Yeah that looks and sounds gross, and I can't even imagine how a Japanese person would take it, the most Shoephobic of all peoples.

    Even if it's just a sculpture, and not an actual shoe...

    It looks like dirt clods served on a dirty sock in a leather shoe. I don't know what self respecting "chef" could possibly think that it was worth serving, much less a respectful thing to serve.

    So what was the thought behind the shoe? Like is it a pun that doesn't translate well? Or a political statement of some sort? Like who just makes the dessert into a shoe without some line of reason
