Fuck driverless cars, Science should be focusing all its energy on figuring out how we make every weekend a three-day weekend.
When I was in Kindergarten one of the girls in my class got sick and was out for a week or so, which is a really long time in Kindergarten. I remember the day she returned to school her mom brought her into the classroom and she cried and cried and cried because she didn’t want to come back. The rest of us just stood quietly on the other side of the room, probably thinking the 5-year-old version of “there but for the grace of God go I” or whatever. I’m sure you remember what a weird transition it was when you first had to go to school all day Monday through Friday; having a brief reprieve but then being forced back into it must have been horrible. This is a vivid memory that has stuck with me all these years, but never more so than after the Monday of a three-day weekend. We’ll survive it, I guess, but I wouldn’t blame anyone if they had to do a bunch of crying at the beginning to get through it.
Here’s something new from Arca. Enjoy.
