This Live Science article covers a set of beautiful equations, nominated by scientists, that describe the nature of the world. It’s worth reading for a glimpse into the beauty of mathematics and its power to illuminate the fundamental laws that govern the universe.
I’m going to try putting wallpaper I collect up as posts so others can (hopefully) enjoy it and I’m going to name the posts by month because I’m not organized or consistent enough to do themes.
I’ll credit the author when I know who created these. Usually I just find them on Reddit, Twitter, or a similar site and don’t know the origin.

Mary Oliver died Thursday, 17 January 2019. It’s worth knowing her. The New Yorker piece below will introduce you to her world and the YouTube video features her reading one of her most popular poems.
I recently found this brilliant performance of “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” on YouTube. The instruments take front and center and the vocalists accompany them, telling the story of a child asking about a father who was never around.

If you love the internet and find trolls sometimes frustrating and often amusing, you should check out Troll Play. It’s a very funny and mostly lighthearted look at both the dumpster fires and surprising kindness found on the internet.
The episodes are around 20 minutes long. I recommend “Dog haters, dads on Twitter and a troll from two thousand years ago” as a good place to start.
