Starting at 18:22 and going through to 26m. Love their expressions, hers for the pride and approval, his for the continual surprise for reasons he then enumerates.
I realize this is a controversial topic but it’s hard to argue with this kind of sentiment: “The poet Susan Musgrave, who knew Al well, wrote of his final months: ‘Al looked at death the same way he has always looked at life—right between the eyes.'”
I’ve saved this for about half a year to share, I think it’s too good of a story not to.
Well the time has come to clean up tabs. If I bookmark them I’ll never see them again, so I might as well share them.
So again I looked at microdata from the American Time Use Survey from 2014, which asked thousands of people what they did during a 24-hour period. I used the data to simulate a single day for 1,000 Americans representative of the population — to the minute.
More specifically, I tabulated transition probabilities for one activity to the other, such as from work to traveling, for every minute of the day. That provided 1,440 transition matrices, which let me model a day as a time-varying Markov chain. The simulations below come from this model, and it’s kind of mesmerizing.
Take a second look at these. Amazing.
Sure, skip around especially the intro, but if you’re into speed these boats are something else. Never seen it from this perspective before!
Full of interesting tidbits:
Love this story, especially details like the black gloves.
Milky Way tracking.
Does this…. work?
I dunno about best in the world, but this kitchen does have some pretty killer features that aren’t obvious at first:
Reddit title was “Smearing time like butter.” Not even going to try to improve that. Takes a little while to get really into it.
“Got divorced, lost my job, so me and my buddy got on our motorcycles and rode North to the Alaskan Arctic until the road ran out.”

I generally aim not to discuss politics on this platform. However there is a non-partisan issue I hope everyone can agree on: money should not play the role it currently does in politics.
Here are some resources for understanding and fighting for this cause:

Beautiful. Plan on seeing the northern lights in person one day.
Interesting, right? But take a look at these figures compared to 2013 values. First post contains the same prices adjusted to 2013 dollars, the next one (by cbartlett) adds actual 2013 prices of those same items, and the third normalizes the values to average (median) income.
I don’t even care if these are fake, they are hilarious!
