The Inexplicable Universe by Neil deGrasse Tyson on Netflix

The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries is a six lecture series from The Great Courses. And, it’s available on Netflix. That’s awesome! Currently (July 24, 2014), the course is on sale in two video formats via The Great Courses for under $30.

While I very much enjoy services like Tumblr and Instapaper, and I love the new eye candy they’ve released recently, one of the releases breaks my workflow. Instapaper makes it more difficult to post a link with blockquotes. Any time you select text and share, it treats the post as a Quote, instead of a link. This means you can no longer quote somethinng then add snarky comments.

Something, something, digging in the wrong place, something, something, bad dates and, yeah, you get numbers somewhere between zero million and 1,000 million. So she’s in the ballpark.
