Just Being Online Makes You Really, Really Depressed

It has been theorized for basically as long as the Internet has been publicly available that being online can make you seriously, clinically depressed. It’s not an assertion made without evidence, as…

July 20, 1969: One Giant Leap for Mankind

At 10:56 p.m. EDT Sunday night, as perhaps 1 billion earth men and women watched and listened, the civilian commander of Apollo 11 stood on the 37-inch diameter landing pad of his Eagle craft and then carefully lifted his left foot off the saucer-shaped gear and pressed it into the Sea of Tranquility.  He was a ghostly white figure moving in buoyant ungravity on a powdery plain some 240,000 miles away- and yet as close as the TV set across the room, as real as a recurrent dream.  For with him walked all men who have ever lived or who are yet to live.

Hope fading for 40 missing in Quebec train disaster, officials confirm five dead
Investigators with the Transportation Safety Board said they have recovered the black box from the runaway freight train that derailed and exploded here Saturday and will be examining it for clues into what caused the disaster.

The train of 72 oil tank cars, owned by Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway, had been parked on a siding in Nantes Friday night when it began rolling on its own down the tracks that descend into Lac-Mégantic, about 10 kilometres away.

About 40 people are considered missing after the spectacular blaze and explosions that razed much of Lac-Megantic, increasing the likelihood that the number of fatalities could soar from the current official death toll of five.

“I can tell you that we have met a lot of people….and what I can tell you is that about 40 people are considered missing,” Quebec provincial police Lt. Michel Brunet told a news conference. (Photos: THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ryan Remiorz)

I have found that the average tumblr user goes through 3 distinct stages:

  1. the “i just got an account and i have no idea what im doing how do i find blogs how does any of this shit even work” stage
  2. the “OMG TUMBLR IS THE BEST THING OF ALL CREATION HAHAHAHAHAHAHA SUCK IT FACEBOOK LOL ALL OUTSIDERS ARE PEASANTS” stage
  3. and, finally, the “i fucking hate this website and everyone on it but i dont know how to leave” stage

Quote
"All journalism is advocacy journalism. No matter how it’s presented, every report by every reporter advances someone’s point of view. The advocacy can be hidden, as it is in the monotone narration of a news anchor for a big network like CBS or NBC (where the biases of advertisers and corporate backers like GE are disguised in a thousand subtle ways), or it can be out in the open, as it proudly is with Greenwald, or graspingly with Sorkin, or institutionally with a company like Fox.

But to pretend there’s such a thing as journalism without advocacy is just silly; nobody in this business really takes that concept seriously. “Objectivity” is a fairy tale invented purely for the consumption of the credulous public, sort of like the Santa Claus myth. Obviously, journalists can strive to be balanced and objective, but that’s all it is, striving."

Yes, You Can Have Fun Reporting the News

The Center for Investigative Reporting released its investigation into the 17 million pounds of marijuana seized between 2005 and 2011 by US Customs and Border Protection.

To visualize how much pot that actually is, they created this throwback video, riffing on the All Your Bass Are Belong to Us meme popularized around the turn of the century.

So how much pot is 17 million pounds? A lot of pot.

Say, the equivalent of 16.3 billion joints or “a 583-foot-tall 3-D flying joint”. Here’s the math:

For our calculations, we assumed the joint was made using a classic Zig-Zag 70-millimeter rolling paper.

Single joint dimensions (rolled): 7 centimeters long with a radius of 0.477 centimeters (circumference of 3 centimeters)

Volume of single joint: 5 cubic centimeters

(image)

Volume of giant joint: 16,274,535,552 joints * 5 cubic centimeters = 81,372,677,760 cubic centimeters

We want our giant joint to have nearly the same proportions as our standard joint, so we want a radius-to-length ratio of 0.477 / 7, or 0.068. So we solve for:

image

(This is too hard for us to remember how to do from high school algebra, so thanks to Truman State University math professor Jason Shaw for helping us out with this one.)

We end up with a joint 17,759.755 centimeters long with a radius of 1,207.663 centimeters (583 feet long with a 40-foot radius).

FJP: Math, journalism and pot. Your Saturday may now begin.
