Philosophy 

I saw a rainbow while walking the dogs this morning. Rainbows are amazing. But for once that’s not my point.

We’ve only had a full physical model for how rainbows work for a bit over 300 years. Yet the name of the thing makes it clear that we always knew it had something to do with water drops in the sky.

Is there a name for this modern conceit that we as a society were all ignorant unthinking hicks prior to the Enlightenment [sic]?

Consider unfollowing that person that always leaves you feeling worse about things.

☕️ Cafe advice needed: where is a good spot to sit and chat around King St Melbourne, near Flagstaff Gardens? I am meeting someone there in a couple of weeks and neither of us know the area. Thanks in advance 😀 (boosts ok)

holy crap this has shorted out my brain, please get me to this location immediately, I require this bizarre mini teapot village to live

I respectfully disagree with the friend who said you have to be on acid to listen to Tangerine Dream. My brain is like that naturally.

feels like accidentally being awake at midnight on NYE tbh - I could hear the waterfront fireworks from my house, stumbled out the front, turned out I could see them too, said 'huh that's nice' to nobody and went back to bed 😂
