Hey dudes, I've been feeling kinda strange lately. Like, nothing really exists anymore, and things just happen. Has anyone else ever felt this?
I vaguely recall something I heard about quantum physics/ or string theory that says basically the entire life and death of the universe happened in a split second. Our existence has already been determined, but we are processing it on a slower rate than it actually occurs, since time is an abstract concept we accept due to limitations in our primate brains.

Or maybe you had a veggie burger that had a few "bad" mushrooms in the mix.

But yeah, I get that.
Alcohol may have been a factor.

So, did anybody else know that Neil Degrasse Tyson has a radio show? Star talk.

Despite never having seen the show, I know that Kardashians exists (gag), but I didn't know the most famous astrophysicist has his own damn show!

Am I the only one just learning this??!

I think I've heard that, but I'm not really a fan of his.

That has to do with quantum mechanics, if you treat the universe as a vacuum fluctuation. It's kind of meaningless, though, because we'd be talking about a very different reference frame.
It's more of a bong moment for physics undergrads, I wouldn't worry about it too much. ;)

Time can not be processed slower than time; c sets some pretty absolute relationships between space and time.

Yea I knew. I don't think it's a very good podcast though.

There's an ecomodernist podcast too!

I have this extension on my browser that allows me to donate a cent to a charity of my choice for every tab I open.
http://tab.gladly.io/
Any thoughts?

Does it discourage you from opening new tabs?
With my browsing behavior, that could bankrupt me. ;)

It doesn't make you donate, but it shows an ad and then their sponsors donate the money.

So the pizza chain Pizza Pizza recently came out with Vegan cheese and it's actually very good. I like the texture better than Daiya and the taste is a little bit better too, for pizza that is, I don't think it'd work as well for macaroni/cheese like Daiya does.
