Quiet, You!

Interesting news item:

Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope, astronomers have recorded a massive star moving at more than 2.6 million kilometres per hour. Stars are not born with such large velocities. Its position in the sky leads to the suggestion that the star was kicked out from the Large Magellanic Cloud,
possibly for talking too loudly and disturbing the rest of the LMG. That interstellar void doesn't maintain itself, you know.

In more local news, this afternoon I paid a 21-year-old college student named Crystal to shoot a live virus up my nose. I was originally going to have her just inject a dead one into my arm, but they already run out. But when she told me about the live option, well, I couldn't pass that up. Getting my virus fresh? Clearly worth the extra ten bucks. Ah, the decadence of Western Society.
