NYT: how safe are you from Covid when you fly?

Neat graphics on this.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/04/17/travel/flying-plane-covid-19-safety.html

For anyone who can’t access it, the gist is that the filtration system on planes does a great job of limiting your exposure to Covid on a plane, but you should definitely wear a mask. Your greater danger is probably at the airport, especially if you patronize a restaurant or bar.

MIT Predicted in 1972 That Society Will Collapse This Century. New Research Shows We're on Schedule.

Study author Gaya Herrington told Motherboard that in the MIT World3 models, collapse “does not mean that humanity will cease to exist,” but rather that “economic and industrial growth will stop, and then decline, which will hurt food production and standards of living… In terms of timing, the BAU2 scenario shows a steep decline to set in around 2040.”

The Confederacy was a con job on whites. And still is.

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/opinion/article136803208.html

This is a great summary of how racism has long been used to convince poor white people to give everything over to the wealthy, yet feel that they are somehow benefiting.

Anyone who ever worked retail will love the angry IKEA guy

Everyone who worked behind a counter, or in tech support, has wished they could say this. It’s actually a comedian named Scott Seiss.

New songs by Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and Amy Winehouse, written by computer

This is interesting. A new project called Lost Tapes of the 27 Club is trying to bring attention to the mental health challenges that musicians face by creating new songs by members of the so-called 27 Club - famous musicians who died at the age of 27, typically by either drug overdose or suicide. They selected four of the most famous members of the 27 Club - Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and Amy Winehouse - and fed 20-30 of each artist’s compositions into a computer, which generated a new song from it, both music and lyrics. Most of the music is also computer generated, although they got other artists to do the vocals.

Here’s the Jimi Hendrix song.



Here’s the Kurt Cobain song.



Here’s the Jim Morrison song.



And here’s the Amy Winehouse song.

A wild coincidence happened at yesterday's NBA trade deadline

In 1995, the Bucks drafted Gary Trent and traded him to Portland before the season started. In 1998, Portland traded Trent to Toronto, exactly halfway (41 games) into his third NBA season.

Within a year, Trent’s son, Gary Trent Jr., was born.

In 2018, the Kings drafted Gary Trent Jr. and traded him to Portland before the season started. Yesterday, Portland traded Trent to Toronto, exactly halfway (41 games) into his third NBA season.

What are the odds of that?
