Patriarchy teaches masc people that it’s okay to be poor emotional communicators because the people around them will pick up the slack and or accept the silence, and if someone hasn’t reminded you today of how shitty that is, let me be the person in your world who said: it’s shit— Chanda Prescod-Weinstein 🙅🏽♀️ 🇧🇧🌈 (@IBJIYONGI) November 13, 2018
There’s a fascinating piece of WWII science history called the Battle of the Beams.— Matthew Buckley (@physicsmatt) November 14, 2018
The problem: a pack of genocidal bastards are bombing England. They’re doing it at night, and given that this is before GPS, they’re really bad at figuring out where they are going.
This number has 317 digits, all ones. It's prime. 317 is also prime!— John Carlos Baez (@johncarlosbaez) November 13, 2018
That's not a coincidence. A number whose digits are all 1 can only be prime if the number of digits is prime!
This works in any base, not just base ten. Can you see the quick proof?
If climate change was a hoax, an insurance company could undercut all the competition by offering lower rates. None of them do. https://t.co/GqYQiDkxpH— Kate Marvel (@DrKateMarvel) November 19, 2018

Hey Twitter! I'm looking for an expert on evolutionary biology for an article I'm working on, and I'm in a time crunch. Anyone matching that description available to talk later today (or later this week, if today's not possible)?— Adam Becker (@FreelanceAstro) November 14, 2018

Yay! Starting May 20th in 2019, the kilogram will be defined using Planck's constant, the speed of light, and the frequency of a very specific kind of light emitted by a cesium atom!— John Carlos Baez (@johncarlosbaez) November 17, 2018
Until now it was defined as the mass of this chunk of metal in Paris.
