Sci Chan has an episode coming up about an Everglades Rocket base, abandoned, of course. but still, they planned to fly to another body in the solar system.  Maybe gator powered.

Maybe it was successful and they had to abandon it because of an alien infection. That certainly seems likely.

the infection, ooo, I was watching the new James Bod movie.  It has a new kind of infection.  That's all I'm saying.

You might like to go back to Sci Chan for a little while.  this is pretty good.

The only sciency thing I've done this week has been to read about Maxwell rubbing cats-fur onto spinning amber disks and charging things.

Those looks like landing fields, but maybe they were dreaming, since SpaceX lands on a dot.

Picked up some mugwort tea.  It has lavender and chamomile in it too.

Currently drinking homemade apple cider.  The sulfur smell has pretty much gone away,

How's the alcohol content?

Apparently trading in cats-fur is illegal, so I got a polecat fur.  It worked really well.  Much better than the rabbit fur and cougar fur, which were 'dressed', and also sort of smell bad.  The polecat is raw, unwashed, um undressed I guess.

Is that a reference to Douglas Adams?  Restaurant at the End of the Universe, maybe?  It sounds familiar.

I'm feeling fine, but it might have been the French wine with the French Onion soup.

I've added Shilajit to my tea ritual.

Not yet.  I've been getting ready for Tesla, and it has been a journey.  The roof is in a Schrodinger state.  It is either nfg or barely fg.

I tried to find the two dots over the o in Schrodinger, but this being a new PC, it seems too hidden for finding it in my current state.

The frogs, you can hear them at night after the rain.  One night it sounded like they were singing, and I copied down the rhythm.

I can interpret that look in several ways.

Yes, of course.  Andean Shilajit or Himalyan perhaps?

More New England UFOs.

And, apparently, more ant people.

Many neurons are searching for the connection.

The shilajit came with a metal "spoon" to stir it into, in my case, tea.

I just added it to my tea.

My tea (blue lotus and damiana) has the color of a nice extra virgin olive oil. The color, not the consistency.

You don't take it for the taste. I drink my teas in a big mug, so it's pretty diluted.
