Blake Griffin may be recovering from arthroscopic surgery but that doesn’t mean he’s not staying busy. The Clippers forward is taking over the SI Vault Twitter feed for the day and all photos will be his requests. If you’re not already on Twitter, this is the perfect time to join. Check the SI Vault feed throughout the day for Blake’s favorite photos. (Greg Nelson/SI)
Very well summarized.
Reminded me of this hopefully not too controversial thought:
It also relates to how science doesn’t usually discuss “facts” bc, who knows, our information or understanding can change - even if it often seems nearly impossible. Still, science is humble like that. Instead, we usually talk about theories and what’s great about them is that they needn’t necessarily be facts as long as they actually explain the phenomenon and provide a working framework for new discoveries. In other words, even if, say, atoms didn’t exist - and we discover some bizarre alternative explanation in 1,000 years from now - it wouldn’t matter so much to science bc our current explanation works. It gets results. And inasmuch as we can’t really prove things with 100% certainty, then knowledge is less about platonic truths than it is about practical truths, even if the platonic truths exist bc, afterall, we can’t know them for certain. So, basically, truth is about what actually works, which is how science works. Other systems of thought describe truth as absolute certainty, even if not providing results; science describes truth as what provides results, even if it lacks absolute certainty.

South Pole Street View
Google has added several remote Antarctic destinations to street view, including the South Pole, Robert Falcon Scott’s tiny hut (who would later die on his return from the South Pole), Ernest Shackleton’s cabin, and even penguins!!!
