I can see this damn Andrew Sabisky situation is not going away. I have written two books about Eugenics and race, teach it, at the place where it was founded, in the lab named after its creator, Francis Galton, where I was an Undergrad and still am a Fellow, so, some thoughts 1/n

I came here to say that as an Englishman married to Mexican, I know anything under a magnitude 4 is nothing there. It's worth saying that many of our historic buildings would probably collapse in what Mexicans would consider a minor tremor. Building regs are very different.

I can only speak for myself, but I would've been delighted to talk to you. I like to salute people wearing ME merch if I'm also wearing some. My N7 coat/bag have sparked a few conversations over the years. One specifically where we both complained that Andromeda was underrated.

I really enjoyed discovering that was enough of a science geek to get invited to space camp as a kid, and the general bigging up of the importance of science from him and . A welcome surprise in a sports podcast.
