Resolutions and the Flipping of the Heliosphere

I made a new video! My favorite thing about this video is that in it, I mention that one of my resolutions is figuring out time travel. As I was about to publish the video, my friend Josh sent me this image, asking when I discovered time travel:

It worked!

Anyway, happy New Year!

  1. I did resolve to quit smoking, but I planned it out for reevaluation over intermittent periods. Also, kicked in a super unrealistic one (finish that novel), for laughs.

  2. My resolution is to flip my heliosphere, you need to do that about every three months or you’ll get lumps and it’ll sag in the middle, also I will no longer mainline sarcasm.

    I may have just broken that last one.

  3. I am both amused and suffering from stuck eyeballs over that NYT article. A woman drank a whole bottle of wine at a bar and that was newsworthy. NYT newsworthy!
