    I read the reviews on Yelp, and it gets three stars, but the reviews are a mix of 5s and 1s and 2s. I think the Alpha Centaurians are posting fake reviews to attract visitors.

    When I saw that comic today, I laughed out loud in the middle of a restaurant.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    More likely, some self-proclaimed intergalactic social influencers didn't get the free trip & stay they demanded for a good review, so turned it into a 1 star hatefest instead.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    These are pretty much all I need now.
    386 - "Duty Calls"
    610 - "Sheeple"
    1235 - "Settled"

    In my youth, Star Trek was my source of wisdom for dealing with life. Now that I have achieved my final form, all wisdom can be dispensed with an XKCD reference.

    I do have to admit that they idea that Stanley Steamer and Ewan McGregor never develop the Scottish hovercraft is kind of absurd, though the Belgium-Madagascar alliance was always kind of shaky.

    Oh, it has just made my day that the SI unit for dark matter mass might become the squirrel. In the next paper I read, I will mentally be forced into doing the conversion of dark matter mass in galactic clusters to petasquirrels. 😄

    I don't think that's a good idea... squirrels don't make very good pets...
