I did this a few years ago, but will be restoring my cable service for football/NBA season this year. Got by with AppleTV and the Watch ESPN app.

I got you this cake made out of horse meat, I hope you like it. Now, let's all smash a bunch of pint glasses together.

Apropos of nothing, The Saloon on U St is a wonderful bar to go to and have a conversation with friends. It's no good for sports, though, as they have no TVs.

Federal Hill and Fells Point are both fun. Federal Hill is a shorter walk, but the walk to Fells Point takes you through Little Italy and some really cool old-ass row houses. Some fantastic bars over in Fells Point. Apparently there's some fun things to do in the Canton neighborhood as well, though I haven't been.

Unless you're in an extremely high-level science class, the fundamental science isn't changing rapidly. The groundwork of physics is all in the Principa. The groundwork of modern chemistry is roughly a hundred years old, and modern undergraduate-level organic chemistry is at least fifty years old.

Only if you discount the fact that of the literally thousands of living band members, past and present, we've heard full-throated defenses of Waters and his efforts to change course within the organization from dozens publicly, and I've heard from several privately, corroborating those public statements.

His comments square with everything we've heard directly from current and alumni members of the band: that the culture was decades in the making, was grossly exaggerated in some instances by the report, and was being addressed during his tenure.

Im not really sure how I feel about the whole firing thing, but the front end of this statement is a definition of insular thinking at its most potent.

Science will never stop, DJ. It's not like those mice are alive while they're see-thru.
