Hey hey we're in Time Out New York! We sound alarmingly interesting in it, too.

In other news I got one of the telescope building books for Optical Collusion in the mail yesterday and it is crazy. Did you know you shouldn't look at stars over the tops of houses? Apparently heat rises off of roofs at night and creates distortion in the air which makes the stars flickery and blurrier. You're already struggling enough trying to get your star-light through the whorls and turbulent bits of the atmosphere and you don't need to add anything else for it to fight through. You'd think that if that light traveled millions of light years it wouldn't wimp out at the last moment.
