This seems important.
There are 13 dominoes in this sequence. If Professor Morris used 29 dominoes in total, with the next one always being 1.5x larger, the last domino would be the height of the Empire State Building.

Too much sports
Aidan is watching a replay of yesterday’s Rams/Browns preseason game.
I had hoped this kind of thing wouldn’t happen until he was an out-of-work alcoholic.
Is there a support group for this? Can I stage an intervention?
Huh. Long time.
It’s not the same though. I miss the old days.
Interesting that a police officer, in South Carolina!, was fired for threatening a black man during a traffic stop. I would normally expect nothing to come of this. Did the fact that the man is in the NFL have anything to do with disciplinary action, or did the Department of Public Safety do the right thing just because it was the right thing to do?
Like ants under a magnifying glass…
Workers at a state-of-the-art solar plant in the Mojave Desert have a name for birds that fly through the plant’s concentrated sun rays — “streamers,” for the smoke plume that comes from birds that ignite in midair.
I’m sure that’s not at all painful.
I’ve always hated how this sign on the Mass Pike is worded. Now I find out that it’s not even correct.
Another helpful USGS employee, Steve Reiter, calculated the highest elevation in the municipal boundary of Oacoma as between 1,430 and 1,440 feet. He suspects that the Massachusetts sign mentions Oacoma because it’s the nearest named geographic feature.
But if the 1,729-feet point isn’t even in Oacoma, then that only raises the question of where that number came from and why it’s used on the sign, which might more simply have stated “this elevation not exceeded on I-90 until South Dakota,” or “no higher elevation on this road until you climb the hills west of the Missouri River.”
The TP my company puts in its restrooms is thinner than the excuses we used to invade Iraq. I swear it’s only one molecule of paper thick. It is one step above wiping yourself with your bare hand. As you can see for yourself, you can see right through it. The floors are usually littered with pieces that tear off as people try to get enough to do even a half assed job, cuz there’s never enough for a whole ass.
My company’s previous building had paper like this. I called it “half-ply”.
