Geoff: Meghan not flying back to the UK might have something to do with the fact that she's pregnant rather than any slight against the royal family.

Or it might be that she's been so demonised in the British right-wing press that she's worried someone might actually try to kill her.

I do wish the press would focus on important stories. Like the continuing fatal incompetence of this clown show of a government.

Geoff: This feels strange. It's been over 11 weeks since the US president did, said, or tweeted something fucking stupid.

Considering everything else going wrong in the world, it's a vaguely positive feeling.

Geoff: Fun Fact #93

In the constellation Centaurus is a white dwarf star, known to science as BPM 37093 (V886 Centauri), but colloquially known as "Lucy".

It's nickname is not anything to do that early hominid also nicknamed Lucy, but the fact that this star, like most white dwarfs, has a high carbon content. More specifically, (based on the fact that it's pulsating at a specific frequency) astronomers can tell that much of that carbon has crystallised in the core of the star.

Crystallised carbon has a common name, diamond. And they estimate that the diamond which constitutes Lucy's core would weigh 5x10^29 kilograms that's... big. 500,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000kg or 1,100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000lbs.

So, there is a Lucy, in the southern sky, with the largest diamond known to humanity.

Someone on Twitter said that Alien can't be a horror movie, because it's in space. Apparently, it being in space means we (the audience) can't be scared of the alien, because we should be afraid of space itself.

Corwin: I always thought the real underlying horror of Alien was our own human nature.
Humans in charge treating lowly workers as expendable assets to achieve their dastardly aims, while spreading our spawn throughout the cosmos.

The Xenomorphs and Humans are not so different, and the parallel between us is subtly suggested throughout. For example, the way the Nostromo crew "hatch" from the cryotubes is eerily similar to how the Xenomorphs hatch from their eggs when awoken.

In the end, Humans end up being a far more lethal species. The Xenomorphs were no match for Ripley. And she was just ONE human.
Just as Ripley warned that if just ONE of those things made it to Earth it could wipe us out. Well... who got wiped out in the end?

As terrifying and hostile the aliens may have appeared, when they crossed paths with Humanity their extinction was inevitable. Was it because we were "good" and they were "evil"? Well, that's a matter of semantics.
Ash the android admired their "purity". Pure survival, with no "delusions of morality".

Geoff: One of the "out there" scientific premises I am most fond of is that humanity should not be referred to as Homo Sapiens but as Pan Narrans, the Story Telling Chimp.

It is our imagination that made us what we are. We're more than a tool using animal. We're more than a ghost, piloting a meat-clad skeleton. We can plan, we can adapt.

But the upshot of that is stories. The stories we tell ourselves. The stories we tell others. The stories that stick with us. The stories that fade away.

Narrativium may not be an element on the periodic table, but it is a fundamental aspect of who we are. And who we can be.

Aura: Not as "out there" as you claim it to be.
Language itself is said to have been developed by small groups sitting around the fire, eating their prey, telling, and each member retelling, the story of the hunt.

Of course, I did read that in a book. There might be a handful of biases at play
