Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

Good fucking Christ.

Another recording from the radio scanner. This one was four peaks, roughly 1.2 KHz apart, descending in intensity as they lowered in wave length. These traveled back and forth, up and down the spectrum, and disappeared and reappeared at what seemed to be random intervals. This made “cat scratch” looking lines on the waterfall graph. There was also one continuous traveling line of lower intensity. All these seemed to be between 252.1625 MHz and 252.1725 MHz. No idea what these are, but their sweeping movement and random cut-ins and outs makes me think they aren’t interference from my equipment.

Recorded this is LSB mode, with a 5.27 KHz bandwidth so you can hear multiple peaks. I left the dial still, so the changes in pitch and the cuts are the peaks sweeping up and down the band, disappearing and reappearing.

A recording of something interesting at 10.02 mhz. This is typically a radio telescope frequency, but the antenna I’m using is tiny, so who knows what this actually is. Maybe my computer power supply. I’m scanning through it and flipping the mode around.

"For these beings, fall is the ever normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth. In gusts they beetle-scurry, creep, thread, filter, motion, make all moons sullen, and surely cloud all clear-run waters. The spider-web hears them, trembles - breaks. Such are the autumn people. Beware of them."
