That’s Dutch, so either Netherlands or Belgium. Neither are in Scandinavia. Oh, and I’m posting this after I called 911 and left the building.

The photo above is the closest humanity has ever come to creating Medusa. If you were to look at this, you would die instantly. 

The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It’s called the Elephant’s Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across.

Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing, this picture was taken through a mirror around the corner of the hallway. Because the wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed by the radiationThe Elephant’s Foot is almost as if it is a living creature.

In the playground

  1. Kid 1: I'm really phat at swinging.
  2. Kid 2: did you say fat?
  3. Kid 1: P-h-a-t. That means I'm cool.
  4. Kid 2: Oh.
  5. Kid 1: I know the secrets of swinging.

If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.

Samuel Johnson

Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.

Written by people with either no time or no money, most software gets shipped the moment it works well enough to let someone go home and see their family. What we get is mostly terrible.

Everything Is Broken — The Message — Medium (via thisistheverge)

While I really enjoyed the article, I think it misses a fundamental fact:

The more you learn about an industry, the more fucked up it appears to be. 

I’ve heard this from architects, actors, college professors, journalists, carpenters, photographers, bankers, lions, tigers and bears.  All systems have chaos be they highways, factories, or internets.  

Personally, as I’ve watched, the quality, stability, and tooling of mobile software has gotten _so_ much better.  I imagine that security, too, is going through it’s own rapid evolution right now.

Understanding the limitations of any system is a sign of expertise.  The trick is to try to make small improvements as you go… otherwise insanity begins to set in.

All but one of the mass murders in the U.S. over the last 30 years has been committed by men. The fact that gender is often omitted from the story speaks to how we still see the masculine as the irreproachable and invisible standard. As Michael Kimmel notes in his extensive research on school shootings, if the genders were reversed and most school shootings were committed by women, you’d bet gender would be part of the analysis.

We often instead shift the conversation to “mental illness” and describe shooters as madmen, while the characteristics they exhibit are often an extension of toxic masculinity ideals that are institutionally reinforced.
