    For anyone that is still awake, or is getting up around 3-7 am depending where you are - you get to (hopefully) see a full moon eclipse! The next one isn't until 2025 <3 Here is where to see it in your neck of the woods!

    Was going to post a Total Eclipse of the Heart original - but these guys did it better - Diary of a Wimpy Kid -

    Also - let's get out and vote everyone. Today is election day. Your vote matters.

    Morning everyone.

    Going to be working the polls today, so no turking for me today.

    Worked early voting as well and had a shooting about 70 feet from the front door on the last day of voting. Ended up being a dozen shots with 2 teens shot in the legs. Voting still happened afterwards, but I pulled all poll workers inside (normally have 1-2 outside for curbside voting) and locked/unlocked the front door between voters for the rest of the day.

    There was also a shooting on the other side of the building right after polls closed on the first day of early voting during the 2020 primary, so unfortunately not the first time. The polling place is in a rough neighborhood, so it probably won't be the last time this kind of thing happens during voting.

    @LumosDC - thank you for working the polls!

    I'm so sorry that you have had these terrible things happen, but am very grateful to you and your quick thinking. Many members of my family (especially my aunt who hasn't missed an election in 30 years) - work the polls around the country and have more positive than negative experiences.

    Be safe and thank you again for working the polls. We all know it's volunteer and how important it is!

    My dream of Antimatter Tuesday didn't come true, so I thought of sharing this picture just to cheer me and the science folks up.

    No completion code was provided upon apparent completion of entire HIT. Qualtrics didn't have enough URL on code-generator page to generate a code. I took a screenshot and submitted with my workerID

    Wow that's crazy! I didn't know that!

    Here we can actually order beer and have it delivered any time. Not sure what Kentucky's rationale is - but guessing 6:15 is a popular time at the bar/grocery lol

    Lived here all my life and never thought to look up why until now lol. It's something from the prohibition era. Before prohibition saloons were often polling locations and politicians would ply voters with drinks in exchange for votes.
