⚛️ Not an equality but an inequality, stating that the entropy (S) of our universe always increases. Entropy can be interpreted as a measure of disorder, hence the law can be stated as the disorder of the universe increasing. An alternative view of the law is heat only flows from hot to cold objects. As well as practical uses during the industrial revolution, when designing heat and steam engines, this law also has profound consequences for our universe. It allows the definition of an arrow of time. Imagine being shown a video clip of a mug being dropped and breaking. ...
In other WKI news, the League of Monochromatic Pets has agreed temporarily to halt their testing of continental warming plates. Which is not as good as if they had agreed to halt warming temporarily but not as bad as if they had taken a nap and left the thing running.

One of the best books on Gas Turbine Performance, by one of its founding fathers, Sir Frank. . . A truly insightful book with a unique analytic perspective and some colorful history of the early days. I can recommend this book for anyone with an interest in turbines, from professional to interested. #gasturbine#gasturbines
Reminiscing. From a show I did at the Tel Aviv Art Museum called "Evergreen". Curated by my dear friend #@sagi_refael. When are we going to do another show together? Crash & Vines, 2010. #@telavivmuseumofart
This may have been a borderline extreme nerd-out...(Harry Potter, in case you're not a nerd...) We were leaving Cave Hill Cemetery, and I saw this Riddle mausoleum. I may have screeched and insisted that we stop (I was not driving). Totally worth it.
