    We've known that this is how planets form for some time now, but it's still awesome to finally have pictures of it!

    Heard on the BBC yesterday: the Paris Observatory reports that, using the Very Large Telescope, theyhave observed evidence of a protoplanet forming. Not the protoplanet itself, but a distinctive S-shaped kink in the dust cloud around a star. (I think they said AB Aurigae.)

    Where's a symbol for the number that's two less than two?
    I need a sign that marks a place, a blank spot just won't do!
    Is there a way to use a finite set of symbols to 
    Express an arbitrarily large quantity to you?
     
    I need a zero!
     
    I'm holding out for a zero at the end of the sum
    And it's got to go here and it's got to be clear
    That it's standing in place of the ones!
     
    i need  a zero!
    I'm holding out for a zero and I'll take nothing less
    I need it to count up the numbers that mount up
    Past what Roman numerals express

    I've cut my own hair for years, ever since my favorite stylist retired. I couldn't find someone else to do it the way I like (strategic length placement to cover balding and receding areas) , so I bought a home hair-cutting kit. I'm still not near professional level, but I think it comes out acceptably. But now I look positively GQ compared to you hippies.

    Several of those photos are definitely of the Giant's Causeway, but the sea-cave is certainly Fingal's Cave in Scotland.

    And here I thought I was alone in liking 13. It's actually my lucky number, as well. I mean hell, no one else wants to use it. 😁

    13 gets a bad rap.  It has suffered under numerist oppression for far too long!  All other elitist regimes such as the arrogant 1 and the supposedly fortunate 7 will soon fall before It!  Attica!  Attica!  Attica!

    Additionally, aside from some (feigned) confusion, MacLeod hardly behaves like most people do when brought in for questioning that pertains to a serious charge; he doesn't make any effort to appear nervous or otherwise troubled. In fact, he is in control and unabashedly confrontational with the junior officer. Either Connor is ignorant of the fundamentals of social interaction...or he just doesn't care (I lean towards the latter explanation). Anyhow, I still prefer to think that most of the cop's instinct picked up on the fact that Connor is this inhuman being which has lived far beyond that which is natural. Unfortunately for him, this sense is only able to inform him in the faintest of whispers that "Something is wrong here.".
     
    P.S. When you say "killers", are you using the term in a neutral capacity or in a more nefarious/malevolent context? Connor has killed many men...as has The Kurgan, but it is clear that their personalities are *radically* different despite both having shed their fair share of blood.

    I love that reimagination. And it shows some of the problems with cramped, tight confines - if they hadn't been using lightsabers, there were a number of instances when they would have been blocked or hooked up by their weapons impacting walls or other terrain.

    Great idea, but you still have to close in to melee range.
