Quickies: Aphantasia, Alex Jones, and LHC data
- Aphantasia: How it feels to be blind in your mind – “I have never visualized anything in my entire life. I can’t “see” my father’s face or a bouncing blue ball, my childhood bedroom or the run I went on ten minutes ago. I thought “counting sheep” was a metaphor. I’m 30 years old and I never knew a human could do any of this. And it is blowing my goddamned mind.”
- Trump ally Alex Jones claims CIA funds Beyonce to cause mayhem – Just…yup. From Alex.

It also challenges a longstanding hypothesis that such risk rises progressively with a woman’s total number of ovulations.” From Mary.
