It’s Thursday, June 30, the 181st day of the year (another two days until we’re halfway through), and it’s Asteroid Day, in honor of the Tunguska Event (a small asteroid strike in Siberia), which occurred on this day in 1908. On this day in 1860, the Oxford Evolution Debate took place, during which Huxley supposedly pwned Bishop Wilberforce, and, in 1997, Britain transferred control of Hong Kong (where I’ll visit in November) to China.
Notables born on this day include Susan Coyne (my sister—happy birthday Sis!), born in 1952, exactly 2.5 years after me. Those who died on this day include Lillian Hellman (1984), Chet Atkins (2001) and Buddy Hackett (2003).

A: What are you thinking about?Hili: I’m thinking about searching for truth.A: And?Hili: It’s a cat-and-mouse game.
Ja: O czym myślisz?

Hili: To zabawa w kotka i myszkę.
