I don't like that this season of the Appresident they're dumping it all on you at once so you have to binge-watch it. I liked the old style where it was one episode at a time. This is too much news.

Right now, in the center of the Sun, there's a nuclear reaction converting hydrogen to helium, producing neutrinos, photons, & positrons. A neutrino from this reaction will pass through you just over eight minutes from now. The photons won't arrive for at least 100,000 years.

Did u know that some browsers make ”an educated guess“ to determine if a <table> is a data table or a layout table? That affects whether or not it is exposed to APIs.
