The minimalist sci-fi mindbender Coherence boasts a scenario as tried and true as the walking dead: Bickering individuals hole up in a house during a crisis, discovering that the threat looming beyond their walls may pale in comparison to the conflict happening within them. There’s a wrinkle in the design this time, however, and it’s that the characters are their own worst enemies not just in a figurative sense, but in a literal one, too.

"La Tierra que recibió a Kenos tenía el suelo duro y seco, no había siquiera un terreno pantanoso. Se podía abarcar cualquier punto con la mirada y por más que se marchara en todaslas direcciones. Se llegaba siempre al sitio en que a Tierra y el cielo se tocaban. Había la misma luz tanto al amanecer como al anochecer, todo estaba en una débil penumbra."

The ending is a nicely executed bit of metaphysical farce, in which all the strands of Harold’s fate converge, but the final notes are more than a little false. Rather than jarring or deepening your perceptions of the world, “Stranger Than Fiction” settles into a cozy, comforting realm that really isn’t very strange at all.

99.999% de certeza de que los humanos están impulsando el calentamiento global

alexiustoday:

Hay menos de 1 posibilidad entre 100.000 de que la temperatura media global durante los últimos 60 años hubiera sido tan alta sin las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero de origen humano.

Publicado en la revista Climate Risk Management de hoy, esta investigación es la primera en cuantificar la probabilidad de cambios históricos en las temperaturas globales y examinar los vínculos a las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero utilizando técnicas estadísticas rigurosas.

I’m sorry. I know that means little at this point. But I am. I tried. I think you could all agree that I tried. To be true. To be strong. To be kind. To love. To be right. But I wasn’t and I know you knew this, in each of your ways. And I am sorry. All is lost here, except for soul and body. That is, what’s left of them. And a half day’s rations. It’s inexcusable, really. I know that now. How it could have taken that long to admit that, I’m not sure. But it did. I fought to the end. I am not sure what that is worth, but know that I did. I have always hoped for more for you all. I will miss you. I’m sorry.
