Time travel explained

I have never been a big fan of Time Travel, but that doesn’t stop me from watching movies/series related to it, like Back to the Future, Game of Thrones (latest TV season, not the book) etc. I found this YouTube video from Vox interesting. Did I understand it fully? Nope. But I did understand it to some extent to figure out that I cannot go back and kill my grandparent and also as to why Bran Stark (Spoiler here) couldn’t have changed what had happened. For fans of Game of Thrones: There will be spoilers in this video, so if you haven’t watched the latest season (all episodes) then don’t watch this video, unless you love seeing spoilers.

Pingbacks!

If in case you aren’t aware, the pingbacks aren’t working for a lot of people. I know that Linda did mention about it a day before. Today is the usual photography challenge day and there is a message on their home page with more information on how to get around to it. Basically, just comment on their post with the link of your post. That’s pretty much it. I have also found that using the appropriate ‘tags‘ also helps. I, for one, tend to search for posts using tags. So don’t forget to tag your post with the appropriate tags when you are participating in any of these weekly challenges. And don’t forget to search using those tags too. Happy Blogging!

Miks

Don’t confuse it with Mix or anything like that, even though they do sound the same. But this is how Mx is pronounced. What is Mx ? This a gender neutral title or in other words, an honorific that does not indicate any gender. So along with Mr, Mrs, Ms, Miss etc., we also have Mx now. This was news to me. But looks like Royal Bank of Scotland has already started to use this in their forms.

There a couple more according to this Wikipedia article on Gender Neutral Title. English sure has evolved a lot now, hasn’t. Instead of figuring out new titles, why don’t we just get rid of them?

SoCS: Wealth of Information

Information is wealth. This is a line we hear very often. How much of these information is converted to a useful knowledge? How much information can we retain to make a decision? How can we actually verify if an information that is deduced from the raw data available is actually the right one? Who validates them? I have had these questions for quite some time. So here I am, putting out these questions as part of today’s SoCS post 🙂


Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “information.” Use it as your theme or use the word itself – it’s all up to you. Enjoy!
