did you know that the earth is 70% water, yet china managed to land a rocket on a tiny village and/or covid-19 hospital? a great victory for chinese science, the unnamed country (who can only hit water lol) must salivate with jealousy

Sorry guys, I'm just a donut.



The other day I got an alert on my phone that said "Massive asteroid strike in Europe, 100+ million dead". I opened it of course, with my mind racing with thoughts about how to help the refugees and the ramifications of this disaster and whatnot. It turned out it was about a supercomputer doing a simulation on the effects of an asteroid strike, and they gave it a cruel and clickbaity title.

This made me think of that for some reason.
