today I learned: the beastie boys are/were (RIP) feminists. they even publicly apologized for their first album, ‘licensed to ill’, for being homophobic. also, unstable uranium, if constantly observed, does not decay- but does when under observation. this is called the ‘quantum zeno effect’. NEAT. next, bob dylan has been following an endless tour schedule (self-dubbed ‘the never ending tour’) since 1988, consistently delivering roughly 100 shows a year world-wide. wowee. finally, there is a study called “the effects of peanut butter on the rotation of the earth” that is co-authored by hundreds of physicists. it is only one sentence long: “so far as we can determine, peanut butter has no effect on the rotation of the earth.” hahahaha. how enlightening.
