Hope you all enjoyed your holidays; Posting will resume next week with The Fox’s review of Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit.
But for now, a word on time. I love to pull this time comparison tidbit out on people such as how the Tyrannosaurus Rex lived closer to us (~65 m years) than to the Stegosaurus (150 m years) even though mentally we just view this entire pre-historical period as “Dinosaurs” and lump them all in together.
This phenomenon is caused because people are really bad at two things; time and distance both sharing a root cause that we don’t grok really large numbers.
But XKCD just used that brain bomb with greater relevance.
