So-called "slow transients" appear over the course of several days and vanish after a few months.

Sounds like Venice Beach.
Someone call Caitlyn Jenner!

As an aside, has one of my still-favorite bad-guy lines...

"Look after Mr. Bond. See that some harm comes to him."

"it's sending signals our way"

I hate that with a passion. It's such a loaded word the way they use it.  "Signals".  Like, yeah, things like radio waves are also how we communicate amongst ourselves, but even if a stellar body emits something you can consider a 'signal' (meaning a radio wave distinguishable from mathematical noise), it isn't carrying meaningful information like the headline implies.

Well, not with your attitude.

Good job, subby. I'm hearing that tune in my head now. Good times.

So that one has five random "advertisement"s placed throughout the article... if I were more stoned I'd think it was a pattern.

I love that the array is something around 3km across but this is the only photo they bother grabbing.  A single outlier tile.  Not even some drone shot of several tiles.

Somebody round up some whales.

I remember when Roethlisberger had to go to the sideline to get his broken nose reset due to a hit to his face. He didn't get a flag either.

Oops, wrong thread.

Sorry subby, I failed solfeggio class.  Can you write it out in standard notation. TY

ZMugg: Oops, wrong thread.


Now, why did you have to say that? I was picturing Roethlisberger trying to breathe through his broken nose and making a sound like the five Close Encounter notes. And you wondering why there wasn't a penalty for doing that.
