Daniel Kim's Comments

Maybe they started reckoning their age in months while they were babies, and never stopped? 532 months is 44 years and change. It may be a count of menses, which would add another 12 years or so, depending on nutrition. This could make some of the lower ages, in the 200 range, still in the 30s.

"The thinking is that either taxes will cover the maintenance costs, or the city will keep growing and generate enough future cash flow to cover the obligations."
This is the definition of a pyramid scheme. Things should not depend on a constant rate of growth.

I cannot adequately express with mere words how disgusting these 'foods' are, and I am not even viewing the video in full-screen mode. Excuse me while I engage in some interpretive dance . . .

OK. Get it? That stuff looked gross!

If it helps, 'doki doki' is an onomatopoeia for a beating heart, and is used as a synonym for becoming excited. It is also used in the sense of 'my heart beats faster for you'.

Even with the extra money, she's only brought to the edge of the poverty line. If the minimum wage had been linked to inflation, it would be over $10 per hour today. But, I am more in the mood for music and dance than politics, and so I present this:

What could go wrong?

His comment about the effort needed to maintain his things giving him more appreciation is well put. The early 20th century was before we had so much planned obsolescence and consumer-mindedness. Looking at the luggage carried for a long steamship journey, one is struck by how little was carried along.
The trouble is, I kept expecting him to come across a dead man with a knife in his back, or some other artifact of a Ms. Marple visit!

yeah, that part is a bit hard to believe. I don't know how they could have stored music on x-rays on a kitchen-table basis. The article doesn't seem to say anything about the process, but I'd be interested to know how it was accomplished. There's a Japanese company that made a wonderful plastic cup phonograph that cut a groove using a needle, but I'd think that such audio-cutting into an X-ray sheet would be really poor quality, since they had access to reel-to-reel tape.

Thank you. I recently read about this in an article about the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor); a fusion energy research project. The project has booked time on the Mare Nostrum, and I was fascinated by the name and the location of this computer. The photo is a beautiful and haunting juxtaposition of old and new.

Neil Degrasse Tyson told them that they had the globe spinning the wrong direction. It was harder to re-mount the motor than it was to turn the globe over.
