“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street. A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

Michael Thomsen on A Dark Room, the best-selling game that no one can explain: http://nyr.kr/1jmTHxJ

“The game’s ever-expanding scope and regular demands for micro-managing resources create an enthralling parallax effect that can keep devoted players dosed, for hours, on the pleasurable sense of immersion that the psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi calls ‘flow.’”

Clever Photos Turn Trash Bags Into Beautiful Swarms of Birds - A flock of starlings—called a murmuration—can spin through the sky in a tightly choreographed display of stunning beauty. Researchers studying the mass movements of these birds see similarities to how electrons line up when magnetized. Photographer Alain Delorme sees plastic bags. “I have always found plastic bags across my path, no matter where I travelled in the world,” Delorme says. “This plastic bag could be anywhere—even hanging on a tree. I thought that it had to fly to land there.” Delorme finds swarms of starlings fascinating and frightening, his appreciation of their grace dampened by memories of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. Bags fluttering through the air or strewn in the gutter, draw a similar reaction, but for different reasons. The ubiquitous sacks–billions are used each year (.pdf) in the United States alone–are increasingly seen as an environmental menace, as they can take centuries to decompose. Dozens of countries and scores of cities have adopted measures to regulate or ban the bags in an effort to curb pollution, and recyclable and biodegradable bags are becoming more common.

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”
