On Sunday night, my husband and I hovered over a large pot, peering down at the shiny shells in a broth of white wine, garlic, parsley, and butter. I made a salad with a simple vinaigrette and sliced a loaf of good bread. It took us only 20 minutes to get dinner on the table, and the shellfish had clocked in at just $3 a pound. El Chapo Speaks.

Putting Time In Perspective - UPDATED

It’s not our fault—the spans of time in human history, and even more so in natural history, are so vast compared to the span of our life and recent history that it’s almost impossible to get a handle on it. If the Earth formed at midnight and the present moment is the next midnight, 24 hours later, modern humans have been around since 11:59:59pm—1 second. And if human history itself spans 24 hours from one midnight to the next, 14 minutes represents the time since Christ.

To try to grasp some perspective, I mapped out the history of time as a series of growing timelines—each timeline contains all the previous timelines (colors will help you see which timelines are which). All timeline lengths are exactly accurate to the amount of time they’re expressing. The Acid Genius of Robert Hughes.

With Pizgatti leading them, some 80 gun rights activists were expected to descend on the UT campus on Saturday to prove a point about how gun freedoms should be increased on college campuses in Texas and beyond.

Only, that's not how things went.
