We take a deep dive into toffee planets with The Planetary Guy, Dr. Paul Byrne, who helps us explore the myriad types of exoplanets that might be lurking out there, including some with eggshell crusts and toffee interiors. And gravitational waves have yielded another secret, confirming Stephen Hawking's Black Hole Area Theorem. Find out all about it, and black hole trivia, on WtG.
Is the boss breathing down your neck about that report deadline? Is your professor complaining about that homework not being exactly right? Does your significant other give you a hard time about not making the bed the right way? Then maybe it's time you tried Standard Deviation. With standard deviation, there's no expectation for your work to be perfect or even at the expected value. Give yourself a little margin for error – and a little time to enjoy the little things in life - with Standard Deviation. If you want perfection, stick to a bit-replicable computer simulation. For the real world, enjoy the flexibility of Standard Deviation. Standard Deviation: The Best a Man Can Get (Gillette)
