General Discussion / Chorizo NE Proxima Centauri
« Last post by poiuy on August 06, 2022, 10:12:16 AM »
A French scientist posted a tweet saying it was from the space telescope, showing a picture of the star Proxima Centauri, except it wasn't:
https://edition.cnn.com/2022/08/05/europe/scientist-space-image-chorizo-intl-scli-scn/index.html

After the resulting brouhaha, his excuse was that the readers couldn't take a joke because of a combination of confirmation bias and cocktail hour!

I wonder what other things it will be necessary to clarify? "It's the undusted underside of the scientist's office furniture, not an amazing new type of galaxy?" Or ... ?

Finally tipped into Genius and a 2fer. Well, two that are variations on one another.

I thought it was important to share.

Good afternoon!

Two pangrams and amazing today.  If I ever get to genius, I’ll be happy.  Yesterday I had to get 2LL hints for lacteal, calcite, and laicize.

LB:  I had rejoice-extubation.  I found one today as well.

Happy puzzling!

Morning!

QBwH, a few new words but then realized I missed little. Gah. So far 4 pans (I think) and still at Amazing.

LB jure-exacerbation.

Happy solving!

Good morning!

I think I have four pangrams but am still not at genius! Yesterday we needed help with lacteal, laicize, tacet

For LB, I got the schmofficial juice-exorbitant.  Congrats on a different solution, Langue_doc! Yep, I thought that crossword answer was quite timely!

Happy solving!

When I first saw this title, I was thinking it meant beer.

Yikes.

Hah! On that topic I want the New Orleans take to be a Federal Right- the right to open carry? Hurricane in hand, I make my stand.

That would be a cool assignment, actually, to list ones own 80 significant books from around the world.

Hmmm.....

Any one who feels the necessity to "open carry" has deep insecurity issues.  Period.  The end.

Good morning!

Three pangrams (I think) and genius. That's it for today.

Missed a few words yesterday--acetal, lacteal, tacet, and a couple more. I distinctly remember typing tattle--the bee doesn't always register words that I've entered.

rejoice/exuberant

ab_grp, I immediately thought of you when I saw 20A in Friday's crossword.

Happy solving!
