This is a link post The Mystery Soda Vending Machine
I love this kind of Fortean stuff

"the seemingly ancient machine is well known for dispensing random, sometimes rare, cans of soda- a fact thatís made all the more intriguing when you consider that nobody seems to know who stocks the machine or where it came from."

Apologies for double post but I'm bored and it's late

This is a link post A telescope as large as Earth - Scott Manley
To see a long distance, you need a big lens.

Even with the biggest current telescope - Hubble, with a 2.4m mirror - the largest thing we left on the Moon is less than a single pixel. The James Webb Space Telescope, planned for 2021, is 6.5m. See here for a really cool comparison picture.

But we need to see much further, deep space objects -so they have to get bigger. Much bigger. Radio telescopes can be combined - using two spread wide apart, and do a bunch of maths, to get an effective lens as large as the space between them - albeit with a big blind spot.

If we join a whole bunch, around Earth, we might be able to see the black hole in the middle of the Milky Way.

I feel compelled to post this cartoon too - many of these are real telescope names! (explained here.)



XKCD also had a great article about what Hubble can see, if pointed at Earth.

I'm not sure this is real. It cannot be real.

CANNOT BE REAL.

This is a link post Cats know there is about to be an earthquake
Surveillance camera in "Cat Cafe Catch", Wakayama City (bottom middle of Japan), during the M5.5 quake in Osaka on 18 June 2018.

The cafe hadn't opened because it was about 8AM. The cats were all fine.

This is 100km from the epicentre, so it looks quite mild - elsewhere 4 people were killed.

Incidentally, I don't think it's anything mystic. They detect the faster nondestructive primary waves.

This is a link post Superb magic.
I love a bit of sleight of hand magic, and I think this guy on Penn and Teller: Fool Us might be the best I've ever seen. Shame his monologue is a bit annoying.
