    do you ever have a plan for the day and suddenly it’s 4pm and you’ve achieved literally nothing 

    I believe Douglas Adams and John Lloyd came up with a word for this feeling. image

     
  5. Transcendence (2014)

    A terminally ill scientist uploads his mind to a computer. 

    The trailer makes me think to a mix of The Lawnmower Man (1992) and Colossus: the Forbin Project (1970). I don’t know much about this film. Some good actors in it. Could be interesting if the scenario is good, or could be a rehash of old sci-fi topics. Still waiting for the first reviews.

We’re sharing this brain-stumper from David Acheson, author of 1089 and All That: A Journey into Mathematics:
Write down a 3-figure number. Any such number will do, provided the first and last figures differ by two or more.
Now reverse your number, and subtract the smaller 3-figure number from the larger.
Finally, reverse the result of that calculation, and add.
Then the final answer will always be 1089, no matter which number you start with!

Life Magazine:

Astronomer Edwin Hubble peers though the eyepiece of the 100-inch Hooker telescope at California’s Mt. Wilson Observatory. Originally published in the November 8, 1937, issue of LIFE


in the first quarter of the 20th century the handsome, self-mythologizing, egotistical and brilliant astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble was world famous for what he discovered while peering through an earlier, land-based telescope: namely, that we are not alone. Or rather, that our galaxy is not alone.
