Near-miss math provides exact representations of almost-right answers.

quote [ Mathematical near misses show the power and playfulness of the human touch in mathematics. Johnson, Kaplan, and others made their discoveries by trial and error—by exploring, like biologists trudging through the rainforest to look for new species. But with mathematics it can be easier to search systematically. ]

Any Half-Decent Hacker Could Break Into Mar-a-Lago

quote [ Our first stop was Mar-a-Lago, a Trump country club in Palm Beach, Florida, where the president has spent most weekends since taking office. Driving past the club, we picked up the signal for a Wi-Fi-enabled combination printer and scanner that has been accessible since at least February 2016, according to a public Wi-Fi database.An open printer may sound innocuous, but it can be used by hackers for everything from capturing all the documents sent to the device to trying to infiltrate the entire network. ]

Dude is incompetent on nearly every level, and it's spilling over into ever more dangerous places.

quote [ A book by the pseudonymous pair Augustine and Josephine Rockebrune gathers some 150 stills from adult films featuring the sleek LC4 chaise lounge. ]
