On The Twelve Days of Female Vengeance: Week One

I suppose Sympathy for Lady Vengeance was too on-the-nose, but, c'mon BAM, not even the version that slowly desaturates over the course of the movie? That's some serious art-house-meets-revenge-flick convergence right there.

On "I still had 14 or 15 hours to go. But for me that's a training swim." *nods*

I know the joke's been made multiple thousands of times, but every time I read her name I think that maybe there is something to nominative determinism after all.

@Julie the T : It looks weirdly like that kid-with-other-peoples'-hands-on-his-head image from the "learn any language!" Web ad things that I never click on and which I cannot find now that I look for it but which invariably crops up in those "From Around the Web" webpage ad sections. Whew.

I'll just leave this here, then.

On NYT Magazine's Hillary Cover Makes No Sense: A Brief Scientific Chat

@j-i-a : It's particularly delightful because my reaction was the same as with all mass-media science gaffes : science-nerd rage followed by resignation that "nobody cares that this makes no sense, so best not to get worked up about it." So seeing this cheered me right up, because YES IT DOES MATTER THAT NOTHING ORBITS PLANETS (except moons and other natural satellites) AND OTHER REAL PEOPLE SHARE MY FEELINGS.
