Big Data has developed an uncanny ability to accurately identify locales I secretly think about visiting.  This ad for cheap airline tickets to three prime luxe destinations popped up this morning.

If you can get yourself over here without a visa Todd the UK government may well give you a (one way) ticket to Rwanda for free. :P

Kigali's murder rate is lower than Portland's.  I'd feel nice and safe.

Staying on this forum, I refreshed the page and saw this ad pop up at the bottom.  Data science is impressive.

There are, undoubtedly, many lonely Ukranian women, for criminally tragic reasons.
 
Too bad they couldn't whack Putin in March, apparently there was a plot to do so.

One of Mahler's last photos --- taken in 1911:



It's so upsetting seeing one of your musical heroes sick and this photo shows someone who looks like he's barely holding on. It also shows someone who has accepted their fate as all us will have to do one day.

His expression conveys impatience more than anything else, imho ( though he was certainly ill by the time this was taken ).

Sure, well, impatience would certainly be a part of this boat ride back to Europe. I think he just wanted to get home, but I'm sure he knew he didn't have much time left. Mahler just had that kind of intuition.

Yes!  I imagine that was the look on his face when he gave his famous criticism of American audiences as not paying attention to the music but letting their mind wander.
