Two overused phrases:
  • Cute
  • Morbid curiosity (and its derivatives)


In the distance, in black hole within Galaxy 0402+379 slowly devours an orbiting star. Material from the star’s surface is slowly shredded off and angrily churned in high energy accretion disc. The material gradually gets drawn towards the black hole, finally disappearing beyond the event horizon. The black hole emits a violent, continuous burp in the form of two high energy relativistic jets along the poles of the accretion disc.

Meanwhile, I seem to have acquired a syndrome of sorts. I feel slightly depressed when weekends and weekday evenings pass without any productivity. This is probably a good thing in terms of my quest to work through that 5 kilograms of light reading material, but it does indicate that something is not quite right under the surface.

More disturbingly, there appears to be a positive correlation between this syndrome’s absence and the presence of certain events. If this correlation is strong, the implications are not good- perhaps an underlying emotional instability or psychological black hole.

But in the meantime, faark it; I will go back to studying corporate finance.
