I have some new reporting on the millions bottles of FEMA water we found going to waste on a runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico a year after Hurricane Maria forced millions of Americans to drink rain and creek water for MONTHS, triggering an outbreak of deadly leptospirosis...
At first, FEMA blamed Puerto Rican locals. “The way it works is we get the commodities to the state, the commonwealth….Obviously with Maria, we had not a supply issue, we had distribution issues,” they said on a conference call

The amount of joy on black people’s faces in 70s cigarette ads still makes me laugh. These ads do not stand up well
The cheating at cards almost as bad as the black eye in old school cig ads. Two men playing tunk. prolly $10/hand $20/Tunk Out. $40 if he catch you. That's high stakes. Dude in the yellow bout to swing on both of them and use this incident to explain "why black women be trippin"
Hope you enjoyed #Bodyguard! We're two eps in now, so I'll do my usual non-spoilery breakdown of some of the graphics that go into making a show like this...

1/ Who wants to hear some scientific intrigue?
A few weeks ago, a group of physical chemists posted a paper online announcing the observation of superconductivity at room temperature.
Today I posted a comment pointing out something funny in their data.
2/ Room-temperature superconductivity has been a holy grail in physics for literally over 100 years. If we could find a material that was superconducting at room temperature, it would allow us to transport electrical power for free, and would revolutionize a bunch of industries.
