Detecting Antimatter

[I]f an alien lands on your front lawn and extends an appendage as a gesture of greeting, before you get friendly, toss it an eightball. If the appendage explodes, then the alien was probably made of antimatter. If not, then you can proceed to take it to your leader.

Neil deGrasse Tyson / From Death by Black Hole, p. 107

Old Photos of Old Aleppo

While digging deep in my “photo archive”, which is the horrible mess of files spread on more than three external hard drives, I came across the below photos of Old Aleppo. I still remember the day I took the photos as if it was yesterday. And in one the photos, the one showing the traditional Friday breakfast “Fool” or Fava Beans, I can still state the sourness of the lemon juice and the salt with the onion slices every time I look at the photos.

To Lock or not to Lock

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three.
