I like to get high in the desert out on dirt roads where there's no other car within miles, usually.

Border Patrol of course are all around, I'm sure they're spying on me and know I get high. But my pot was all bought legally in US states that have legalized recreational marijuana, so I'm not really contributing to the smuggling they're after.

I drive real slow on those desert roads cuz it's much more fun, when you're stoned, to drive slow and enjoy the journey.

It disproves Thermodynamic predictions, again.

Isn't it a bit odd that such an abundant and important substance as water has no equation of state? And it just got weirder. Thermodynamic laws predict simplicity and smooth entropy gain but that fails even for water.

Thermodynamics is dead. Give it up. Find another way to be mean to poors.

Scientist Claims There's Even More Evidence of Planet Nine's Existence (theverge.com) 141

An anonymous reader cites an article on The Verge: More evidence is pointing toward a mysterious Neptune-sized planet lurking at the outer edges of our Solar System. One of the scientists who claimed in January to have found strong evidence for a ninth planet -- temporarily named 'Planet Nine' -- now says there are even more clues that support the world's existence. Mike Brown, a planetary astronomer at Caltech University, originally concluded that Planet Nine most likely exists after studying the behaviors of six objects in the Kuiper Belt -- the large cloud of icy bodies that orbit the Sun beyond Neptune. Now Brown is claiming that another Kuiper Belt object supports his theory. The object shares some of the same behavior as the other six Kuiper Belt bodies, suggesting it has also been pushed by a large planet that is between 200 and 1,200 times the distance from the Sun to Earth.
