Still negative. This is the last of the Mö Home Tests, results in 10 minutes. Having these broadly available and cheap would change everything

I reaffirm this controversial prediction made 1 yrr ago. Trump's death toll in current pandemic will likely be 1/2 million. But Trump's death toll from future cataclysmic will lilely be many tens of millions. He's tipping humanity over a tragic tipping point.

Fascinating paper on primate brain evolution 🧠 Diurnal species have expanded visual areas, nocturnal species expanded olfactory areas 🧠 Solitary species have expanded spatial areas 🧠 Neocortex size is better predicted by diet than sociality

How they make us doubt everything. Excellent podcast on how various industries learned from the tobacco industry about how to sow doubt and undermine trust in science...

Yes, yes New Zealand is doing great on COVID. But perhaps we can also spare some praise for, say, Vietnam? Vietnam maintained a 99-day streak without community transmission of COVID-19, and it has 19.5x the population, 15x the population density, and 1/15th the GDP/capita of NZ.

It’s a service. It doesn’t lose money. It costs money. No one says the military loses $750b a year.
