Meet Steve, the curious ribbon of purplish light. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/steve-northern-lights-not-aurora-1.4792483

Comment

"At first glance, an amateur might look up at the night sky and mistake the dancing lights for an aurora, which is caused by particles that come down magnetic field lines into Earth's upper atmosphere. The charged rain gives energy to atmospheric molecules and atoms, which in turn, take the energy and radiate light."

"By any usual interpretation, the hacker has stolen money from other users and violated the intent of the DAO. However, according to the DAO’s own legal contract, there is no such thing as theft and the intent is completely unimportant. the only important and relevant thing are the smart contracts themselves. Consequently, there is no real legal difference between a feature and an exploit. It is all a matter of perspective." http://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2016-06-17/blockchain-company-s-smart-contracts-were-dumb

Comment

"The U.S. legal system has built up a pleasantly redundant system of safeguards so that investors usually get more or less what they expect. If you invest in a U.S. public company, you are in a sense signing up for a certificate of incorporation and bylaws, which are written in lawyerly language. But you also get a prospectus that explains the terms of your investment in relatively (relatively!) plain English. Also the terms of that investment -- how you vote, what duties the company owes you, what rights you have, etc. -- tend to be constrained by federal securities law, state law, stock exchange listing requirements, underwriter due diligence, public policy, custom and tradition. Even if you invest in a company whose bylaws say that the board of directors can sacrifice you to a demon on the first full moon of a leap year, it's unlikely that that term would be enforced. There is only so much leeway to depart from the standard terms."

Why Are All “Star Wars” Movies the Same? https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/why-are-all-star-wars-movies-the-same

Comment

"Apparently, it’s impossible to imagine a galaxy far, far away in which the Millennium Falcon doesn’t weave through a canyon and Rebel bases are not besieged; there must always be a Jedi warrior with a British accent, and bands of resistance fighters must always include a raffish rogue with cool hair; someone must always conceive a crazy plan to sneak into an enemy stronghold and then get caught. Just as one’s dreams converge on the same situations (the pop quiz, the dentist’s office), so “Star Wars” seems to take place in a dream world in which old friends are perpetually reuniting and nobody can find his or her parents."
