Breaking news from the UK

This angers me.

i’ve had like two chocolate digestives in my life and even i could have told you that clearly the chocolate was the bottom. I mean seriously people. 

The thing is that chocolate-less digestives have the McVitie’s stamp on the top of the biscuit so its confusing.
Wait no. That is literally just what the article says. Wow I am dumb.

This Is Big: Scientists Just Found Earth’s First-Cousin

Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. 
NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. 
It’s the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star—the sweet spot between too-hot Mercury-like planets and too-cold Neptunes— and it is likely to give scientists their first real opportunity to seek life elsewhere in the universe. “It’s no longer in the realm of science fiction,” said Elisa Quintana, a researcher at the SETI Institute. 
But if there is indeed life on Kepler-186f, it may not look like what we have here. Given the redder wavelengths of light on the planet, vegetation there would sprout in hues of yellow and orange instead of green.

A friend and I once ran into Jonathan Hyde (Van Pelt) in a pub after seeing him in a production of “King Lear”. My friend said, “Your character in Jumanji gave me nightmares when I was 7.”

Hyde looked him straight in the eye, stepped really close so they were basically nose-to-nose, and said: “Good.”

Then he walked away. What a dude.

Another weekend, another destination. This week: Hangzhou. Arriving into Hanzhou, bucketing with rain, prospects for a memorable weekend were not looking optimistic. However, it was on this misty, drizzly weekend that I had one of my most memorable moments so far. We went to check out the tea fields at Longjing, the famous Chinese green tea. Pouring with rain, it was not a popular tourist desitination on this particular day, therefore, we had the place pretty much to ourselves. Meandering around the cute tea town, we started conversation with some old Chinese ladies on their way up to the tea fields for another day at work. Amazingly, they agreed to take us up to where they work, an area usually not open to tourists. We ascended up the slippery steps and reached the peak, where only straw hats dotted the luscious green carpet of tea bushes. These incredibly kind and gentle ladies showed us how to pick tea, giving us an insight into their daily lives. The bottom photo shows the lady erupting into giggles as we try to explain the concept of ‘selfies’. She seems entertained by the result

Haha…wow.
