A moment of humility for a weekend day. The world is big and complicated. If everything was as simple as it seems on the surface, we’d all be bored, lounging around in our flying cars.
xkcd today takes the actually Hurricane Center Advisories from 2005 (when we ran out of letters) and draws the narrative. The results are hilarious.
Now we just need to figure out how to get there.
Thanks to XKCD for making this Radiation Chart available on the web. This will help you visualize and understand the various levels of radiation. Simple things to know, you get 3x the amount of radiation by living 50 miles from a Coal plant than you do from living 50 miles from a Nuke plant.
