Questions I wouldn’t have been terribly surprised by: Fan mail, hate mail, I miss you where are you mail, NOT THIS. THIS WAS UNEXPECTED. (Though quite fun and it’s been keeping me occupied most of the day believe it or not. ｡◕ ‿ ◕｡)
I asked a friend…(maybe not a good idea ◕‿<) She suggested:
- Beef jerky (for a snack, for the road)
- A pogo stick (still not sure why…she says for speed bumps….)
- A functional lightsaber for anyone who gets in your way
Here’s my own list, considering I don’t have a mobility scooter or plans to visit Russia beyond the distant future:
- A bottle of
vodka water (Stay hydrated.)
- Either a scarf and sunglasses or a poncho, depending on the weather. (I’d go with the poncho and keep hold of the shades considering the current 10-day forecast…)
- A map. Maps are good. (Preferably one of Moscow, as one of Spain or Madagascar in this situation might not do you as much good.)
- Something snacky (granola bars can be smart)
- A CAMERA. It’s a good thing to have and hopefully worth the space it will take up in the scooter’s basket.
Have a lovely when-and-wherever-you-are! (No clue if you are in fact going to Moscow with a mobility scooter and if you in fact are I hope you have a brilliant time.)

The mystery of the roaming rocks of Death Valley’s Racetrack Playa may be at an end. Since their discovery in the 1940s, researchers have speculated about what conditions on the playa could cause 15+ kg rocks to slide tens or hundreds of meters across the dry lakebed. But the rare nature of the movement and the remoteness of the location had prevented direct observation of the phenomenon until last December when a research team caught the rocks in motion (see the timelapse animation above or the source video). Winter rain and snow had created a shallow ice-encrusted pond across the playa by the time the researchers arrived to check their previously installed equipment. Late one sunny morning, the melting ice, only millimeters thick, cracked into plates tens of meters wide and began to move under the light breeze (~4-5 m/s). Despite its windowpane-like thickness, the ice pushed GPS-instrumented rocks up to hundreds of meters at speeds of 2-5 m/min. It took just the right mix of conditions—sun, wind, snow, and water—but the two ice-shoving instances the team observed go a long way toward explaining the sailing rocks. (Image credits: R.

The picture above is of a mushroom thats thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri right before its fingers open up. It closely resembles a hand coming out of the ground. It even has the remnants of its tattered sleeves attached to the wrist.
tip: failing a class? demand trial by combat
I guess it would be much easier in a certain class… I’d do this right away (without that stupid recordings)…
