The #CometLanding has probably happened, but we won't get news of it until midway through my meeting. Stupid relativity...
Two robot space probes tweeting at each other while #CometLanding would be the cutest thing of the morning, but I have kids.
Race against the clock: #CometLanding vs. the time when I have to leave my office to go to SteelyKid's parent-teacher conference...
I'm not entirely convinced that booting a car for overstaying in the 15 minute zone is accomplishing what you want...

How is quantum physics like a crossword puzzle? Video promoting my new book (T-shirt by @minutephysics).

RT @ancientblogger: It's Greek Myth Bingo - (and thus a possible drinking game)
Some kind of road race downtown today, so the market is chaos. #JustWhatINeeded #PaperCutAndLemonJuiceIsNext
Question for astro folks: Fair to say that gas in black hole accretion disk was probably being pulled off companion star prior to B.H.?
