Ten duel commandments.
@kendragarden: One thing I’ve learned so far in quarantine is that my husband refuses to microwave anything for 45 seconds, he always does 44. When I asked him why, he said, “For Obama.”
RIP Curly Neal (the bald guy from the Harlem Globetrotters).
No cause of death announced. He was 77. He was the star of the show when I watched a Globetrotters game at the Cow Palace in the early 80s.
What's for lunch?

We're designating an 11th commandment. What should it be?
Today in COVID-19
Today in our crumbling democracy
Some of you may remember me from the other website where I commented frequently and have yet to comment here but I have to sadly announce that I wasn’t admitted for Cal’s class of 2024, a stinging blow. I don’t know where I will end up right now but I will do my best to lean on this community to help bring me back in from this mess, even if I do decide to go to UCLA(please don’t hate me if I do lol.
Watched "The Ottomans" last night on netflix. Pretty good show, kind of a cross between Gladiator and Game of Thrones in terms of style. They trot out various profs from time to time to discuss the actual history of the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Docudrama otherwise.
Reminder: Zoom DBD tonight at 8pm Pacific. Let me know if you need the link.
‘Whiskey webs’ are the new ‘coffee ring effect’
When a drop of liquid evaporates, solids are left behind in a pattern that depends on what the liquid is, what solids are in it and the environmental conditions. Stuart Williams and colleagues previously found that drops of diluted American whiskeys –– but not their Scotch or Canadian counterparts –– formed webbed patterns when dried on a glass surface, and there were hints that the pattern was distinctive for different brands of whiskey. In the current study, the researchers wanted to see how the whiskey webs form in more detail, and whether they could serve as fingerprints of the spirits.
