Just learned about a really cool thing - Przybylski's Star. It's a "chemically peculiar" (Serious Astronomical Term) that's VERY weird indeed - weird elements like holmium, scandium, neodymium, and uranium present at 1,000x to 10,000x their abundance in our own Sun.

In fact, some even weirder elements - plutonium, einsteinium, californium - have been detected as well. Which is REALLY weird - those have short enough half-lives at a cosmic scale that we don't really observe those ANYWHERE in nature, because they disappear so quickly that they would have to have been produced very recently in cosmic time.

It's actually been proposed that the star may contain the theorized but as-yet-undiscovered "island of stability" isotopes of exotic superheavy elements like flerovium, or Element 120, or Element 126 - and that the reason we're seeing those strange radioactive elements is actually as decay products from these exotic isotopes.

This just seems like the sort of thing that is OBVIOUSLY the hook for a science-fiction novel.

@sir It’s cool that you’re offering feedback to the community on features in testing, it’s what give Mozilla its strong mandate to be the privacy and open alternative to the adware that is Google

But if you want a strong open browser, you might want to rephrase your public criticism (which I’ve read a lot of), in a more constructive and thoughtful way

You’re allowed to say what you like about FF, but if your goal is to make it better, I dont think you’ll achieve it this way

@sir

Just a few points to consider:

(0) This is in Test Pilot, which is an explicit opt-in (as in add-on)
(1) There is no evidence Mozilla is exchanging data for money
(2) You can alternatively run Chrome, which is run by an ad company, or any number of proprietary browsers (Opera, Maxathon) that do the same, or far inferior open-source browsers, or (*shudder*) Safari/Edge

Britpol, but actually USpol could do with some of this.

This is awesome and I’m excited for a new voice in Canadian news that isn’t run by Postmedia cbc.ca/news/business/politico-

Ho boy, I hope Ikea wins!

But for the inane need to drag in the abortion debate, I think this is a surprisingly and refreshingly conciliatory article from the National Review nationalreview.com/2018/06/aga

If anyone questioned whether the ⁦@nationalpost⁩ was a conservative rag...
