The real shocker is not that this research exists of course (that social distancing is mostly useless), but that is on a mainstream media site.
Finished resurfacing my cast iron skillet over the weekend. Was sloppier than intended when trying to remove more of the pitting from the side walls, so I wasn't able to level the bottom cooking surface as much as I wanted in the time I had, but it's WAY smoother than the pitted, rough mess this cast iron was when I got it new. Will be far more pleasant to cook with/clean once it builds up a proper seasoning again on the newly smoothed interior.
Accidentally purchased a lamp that was also an IoT device? (A problem on so many levels)

My #Rush story:
I was in Speech & Debate" in high school back in the 90's. The topic was about some global warming crap.
I used a quote from Rush's book "The Way Things Ought to Be"
I lost the tournament cuz the judges said: "You can't quote Rush as a source, you have to use a valid source like Newsweek magazine." 😅
Normally there is a pronounced 11 year sun spot cycle. There is a longer 350-400 year cycle where the sun spots almost completely disappear, and the sun dims slightly. The maunder minimum was from 1645-1715 during the mini ice age. There are two new solar minimum periods now predicted one of which starts now 2020-2053. There is a nice graph in this link showing the maunder minimum. There have been other lesser minimums too.
Here is a new article just out.
