Classes resume one week from today


I’d like to know how someone smuggled a camera into my classroom to record our interactions in the future.

I’m not at all concerned about urine drinking going on, but I feel like I need to pass a rule prohibiting breathing, just to be safe. At the very least, NO SINGING.

    Aaah, why is there blue stuff spraying out of its nipple? I’m so disturbed.

    Typical goddam internet: “I found X interesting: ” but strips X of all attribution, so you can’t credit its creator, and you can’t follow up to possible related material or to learn about methods, etc.

    Anyone know where that animation comes from?

    At the end of the video, it says that it’s produced by RIKEN’S International Affair Provision. I assume it refers to the whole of it.

    Thank you. RIKEN (https://www.riken.jp/en/about/) is “Japan’s largest comprehensive research institution” and with a bit of poking around we find they have “currently the fastest supercomputer in world” and on its page (https://www.r-ccs.riken.jp/en/fugaku/research/covid-19/msg-en/) we find supercomputer-generated simulation videos. Each of which has a “watch on YouTube” link for instance, “Watch droplets in a cough spread in the air” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KA4JSklL5U).

    It looks as if somebody pasted these short videos end to end, with no explanation or transitions or credit or other context. Typical internet karma whoring. Anyway, there they are.
