Other Ten Percent 11/25/13

Nov 25 2013

How is Thanksgiving prep going there in the future you guys? I’m asking because today for me was the first time this year I’d really considered that was something I was going to need to think about and I wonder how that vague anxiety will be manifesting itself in a week. WE MAY NEVER KNOW…but we probably will though.

Can this just be all celebrity photos from now on? I’d totally read US Weekly if every issue was just this the whole time.

One of the lesser-known disasters of the nuclear age
I can’t decide if it’s comforting or not that governments have gotten way worse at covering up almost ending the world.

“Synesthesia, loosely defined as the phenomenon of a sensation creating an unnatural secondary…”
This is…so this seems like it’s kinda made up. Like not that this girl doesn’t exist in medical records but like this shit is never going into the DSM as the first case of something that’s actually going to be a thing. But what if I’m totally wrong about that and this is actually the first manifestation of a peculiarly 21st century kinda crazy like how the underlying neurological conditions of paranoid schizophrenia totally existed before the late 19th century but the societal conditions for it to manifest as a belief that you were hearing voices originating from something on earth had to show up for it to distinguish itself from run of the mill religious delusion.

So the one downside to doing this so far in the future is that once in a while I have an actual like, “scoop” and I now know, instead of just being kinda worried, that you guys will have seen something like the absolutely brilliant Upworthy Springfield before I send it to you.
