Oooh, TRVL has Alaskan Killer Bigfoot.  Not just any Bigfoot.

Of course, I'm on HSTRY.

I'm also in Space Engine. I posted a question in the discussion section asking if there were a way to add lines between a set of user-chosen stars. So, you could make custom asterisms and explore them in 3D.

What is an asterism?

The lines connecting stars in a constellation.

Hmm.  That is the first time I've heard of such a thing.  I guess you astronomers are privy to a new, extraterrestrial intelligence.

These lines don't change as you fly off into outer space ad some supermultiple of the speed of light.  Maybe the aliens, that have their local asterism on a baseball hat will be found out as we compare their baseball hat with known asterisms to find their source, assuming that we know their asterisms, that is.

Asterisms change over time, probably.  Today's asterism is a combination of locations that were occupied by the stars so many years/ millions of years ago, and different stars were where they were at different times, when the light left their surface.

You have to apply a priori probabilities to reach the final end.  p_mouth|'ast' = 0.1 while  p_anus|'ast' = 0.8.

It's probably higher than 0.8.

I just heard what is probably Bigfoot.

There should be more bigfoot in this bigfoot show.

You could say that about every bigfoot show.

Aliens and cannibals in the 'Alaska Triangle'.  Shocking and horrifying!

Well, yeah.  It mad a knocking sound, probably with its big feet.

Speaking of 'pungent odor', I bought a Durian fruit at Costco.  It is still in the freezer; a little afraid to open it, plus I've been rather busy.  Durian are supposed to stink, hideously.  It is not even allowed in certain apartment complexes in the far east.

Me neither, but there it was, in the freezer at Costco, wrapped tightly in plastic.  I'll probably have to open it the night before trash pickup, and even then it will probably attract a SkunkApe.

Yeah, hadn't thought of the camera.  It might fight the bears for the durian.  That would be so cool!

That looks nothing like the typical representation of a wendigo.
 
2022-12-06 10:49:38 PM  
If they weren't in Alaska, it could look just like a SkunkApe.
