Welcome back to Friday!

There are 35 shopping days until Christmas. And next week is US Thanksgiving.

How are we already here? This year has disappeared. But also very much felt like three years.

It’s video time!!

HTK#94 Flower

“About 35k kapla, 8k dominoes, 5 builders over 3 days”

One of the largest actual multi-storey domino setups I have ever seen in my life.

Three full days to set up. Just under three minutes to knock it all down.

Absolutely epic.

Created by Domono enthusiast Crouzier Benjamin.

Verifying that you’re not a robot

“Please check the box that confirms you are a human.”

From UK comedian Stevie Martin, who creates other short videos about oter everyday situations.

Well done. She’s great!

How COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Work

How COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines Work

“COVID-19 mRNA vaccines deliver directions to make a protein that educates our immune system, so it will neutralize the virus in future encounters. The mRNA-containing lipid particles are taken up by specialized immune system cells.”

One of the clearest, most succinct descriptions of how the MRNA vaccines work to prevent COVID-19 infection.

Also worth a look: “The Long History of mRNA Vaccines” (Spoiler alert: since the 1970s)

Playing banjo for a wild fox! He came back for an encore!

Despite the pandering, clickbait-y title, this is worth a look.

This is banjo player Andy Thorn (uncredited in most of the versions of this videos online.)

He’s good!

I love foxes but holy cow they are such an extremely volatile animal. Do not do this!

Well there we have it.

Your Friday night is ready to begin!

I hope you’re all as well as you can be.

Happy Friday!

Have a fantastic weekend!
