We kicked myopicprophet off of the NOT tonight so he has time to calm down before he says “death to America!” And here I thought Canadians were agreeable sorts. C’est la vie.
The birds know what is up. According to WAPO, hero vultures are shitting all over a Customs and Border Control tower:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has a problem with vultures — specifically, roughly 300 of them that are defecating and urinating all over a radio tower that the agency needs to communicate.Washington Post
The excretion is coating the entire 320-foot tower in southern Texas, including the interior part that workers need to touch, according to a request for information that the agency sent to vendors. The government is seeking a “Vulture Deterrence Netting System” to be installed in August before the birds’ roosting season.
The kids are alright.
“Wolf Cukier, 17, of Scarsdale, N.Y., had wrapped up his junior year of high school when he headed off to intern in the summer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., where he discovered a planet orbiting two stars.Washington Post
The planet, now known as TOI 1338 b, is nearly seven times as large as Earth and has two stars — one that’s about 10 percent more massive than our sun and another only a third of the sun’s mass and less bright, according to NASA.”
Personally, I think that if you discover a planet you should get to name it, especially if your name is Wolf.

Some other things are going on, but save them for later as we don’t want to ruin your Saturday night…
