Nothing like getting into work after a long weekend to 531 new emails

Saw graffiti saying "Fuck the Ops." Someone really doesn't like their server admin.

Saw a sign advertising a "radiation free building. Call for details." I almost want to call and ask how they light it.

There weren't any Hogwarts-y spots we could find at #LongBeachComicCon, so we improvised. Her thought was to show #ProfessorTrelawney after she'd been sacked, sitting in maybe a train station, lost and unsure what to do. #cosplay #HarryPotter #lbcc2019 #lbcc

Much pleased to-day with thoughts of gilding the backs of all my books alike in my new presses.

Worf: it is tradition to drink pumpkin spice at the turn of the season
Jadzia: I think it's great that Worf is enjoying non-klingon things
O'Brien: but it's not even fall yet!
Sisko: maybe a little pumpkin spice is just what this station needs

An interesting article about Arthur Conan Doyle being deceived by two illusions, which he then insists are still due to supernatural causes. It demonstrates that we are all prone to fall into such cognitive traps.

Which is why when I see magicians do their tricks, I simply assume I am not smart enough to figure out how they did it, rather than believe they have supernatural powers. Ditto for some 'religious miracles'.

Just noticed I have more followers on (98) than on (66)! 😁 It'll be a while before I catch up in number of photos, though...

I mostly post nature, architecture & landscape stuff there, and just randomly interesting stuff. You can follow Pixelfed accounts through Mastodon or Pleroma too. I'm at @KelsonV
