#Nutella #cake #my likes are accelerating for some reason #1000 wasn’t that long ago #this is the 4000th #when I bought a jar of Nutella as a Passover treat I found the novelty actually wore off pretty quickly #but I like edible sculptures
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
Okay, this is a really entertaining game – it drops you at a random location in Google Street View and has you guess where you are based on your surroundings.
The ones I get right are either the ones with shop names in, so I can see the language, or the ones with distinctive geological features. (Where by “feature” I mean “type of bedrock as indicated by hill shape and/or visible outcrop”. ^_^ Quick, everybody act surprised.)
Ooh. All the sleuthy fun of Mapcrunch, but much shorter rounds and official score-keeping (though I’m not sure quite how they convert crow-flight distance to points).

Chris Hadfield and students from coast-to-coast fill the sky with music
For his last downlink before returning to Earth, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield performed I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing) with hundreds of students at the Ontario Science Centre and nearly a million people, mostly students from coast-to-coast Canada and around the world, performing the song in unison from their location.
I.S.S. is a song co-written by Hadfield and the Barenaked Ladies’ front man Ed Robertson.
IT EXPLAINS THAT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO THINK IN PICTURES AND SOME PEOPLE WHO THINK IN WORDS
It does? It definitely says that there are some people who have very detailed mind’s eyes and some who lack them entirely (and a lot in-between), which is only almost the same thing. (I certainly can visualise and often do, but if asked if I think primarily in pictures or words I would probably say words, and visualisation is the first thing to go under the least amount of stress*.)
*Defined for this purpose as “deviation from routine events”. (While they are often enjoyable deviations and routine events can be stressful (in a way that doesn’t cause this), “stress” still seems like the most appropriate word.)
