I walked on the side of the street that I don't usually, and was rewarded with the discovery of a googley-eyed rock colony.

Fun fact: the Saturn V (rocket which sent Apollo astronauts to the moon)'s engines (Rocketdyne F-1's) each use the equivalent of a sports car engine just to pump fuel into the combustion chamber... 2.6 metric tons of of fuel, per second, per engine.

Most cars measure their fuel economy in miles per gallon-- the Saturn V got about 5 *inches* per gallon. The difference is that the Saturn V has a max speed about 100x your typical car. It doesn't actually accelerate much faster than a car; it just *doesn't stop*.

During the 159 seconds that the Saturn-V first stage is burning, it's total power output is greater than the rest of the world's electric power generators combined.

Whoʼs the king, baby?

Is it possible to scramble a Rubikʼs cube so no adjacent tiles have the same color on any side? (Diagonals donʼt count as adjacent.)

As introverted parents, my wife and i canʼt even remotely comprehend what it means to our very extroverted daughter that kindergartens reopen today in Hungary. She even convinced her overly caring mother that she should go on the first day, even though she doesnʼt have to since i work from home.

Context: childcare institutions (except schools) reopen today as most parents who still have their jobs donʼt have enough holidays to stay at home with their children.

Followup: how fast was the response time?

Boosts requested; I'm writing an article about the moderation of decentralized networks.

My wife is going back to work after 6 years, so we made an online CV for her:

I’m no web designer nor front-end developer, but i’m proud how it looks. However, i’m pretty sure there are a lot of ways to improve, like DOM, CSS, and accessibility-wise. I’m open to constructive criticism.

The CV is in Hungarian, the sections are

- experience
- certificates
- languages

- other experiences (abilities?)
- areas of interest

Coffee nerdiness 

This means i need almost 20 grams of pure caffeine if i want to die. For comparison, the bottled ice coffee i drink pretty much every day, contains about 120mg, so i need to drink 160 bottles, or 48 liters, to die. I’m not sure which would kill me faster, the caffeine, or the enormous amount of fluid that’s mostly milk.

Math nerdiness 

According to WolframAlpha, 0 to the power of 0 is undefined, but the graph of |x| to the power of |x| (which includes 0) is continuous at 0. (It also worth noting that “lethal dose of caffeine” (which is 192mg/kg) is a question related to 0^0)

My corporate work asked for a “funny picture of your pet”. So I sent them a picture of Kiki, my sourdough starter, who enjoys being fed and taking long walks. My boss followed up with me to make sure I was doing ok.

If a species must exist on earth, no one can make it extinct.
