MULANEY HALLOWEEN IS ON TONIGHT 9:30/8:30C ON FOX

PHOTO 1: Fans of Nasim Pedrad: watch MULANEY tonight. Nasim knocks it out of the park and does it all from a recliner. I am so lucky to work with her. 

PHOTO 2: Tonight is our Halloween episode. It was written by Dan Mintz. Mintz is a gifted writer who cleverly titled the episode “Halloween.” He has new album called The Stranger on iTunes etc.

PHOTO 3: Zack Pearlman is extra special on tonight’s episode. Zack is a joy who’s car is so filthy that he cleaned it for five minutes before giving me a ride and there was still a shoe on my seat. 

PHOTO 4:  This is a photo from Deadly Women on ID. This actor (Christina Bale?) is not on tonight’s episode but we promise we tried to capture the terror and intrigue of this pic and put it in the episode.

"Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know."

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

“‘There’s always that joke that there’s a Starbucks on every corner,’ says Justin Grimes, a statistician with the Institute of Museum and Library Services in Washington. ‘But when you really think about it, there’s a public library wherever you go, whether it’s in New York City or some place in rural Montana. Very few communities are not touched by a public library.’
In fact, libraries serve 96.4 percent of the U.S. population, a reach any fast-food franchise can only dream of.” 
There are more public libraries (about 17,000) in America than there are McDonalds (about 14,000) or Starbucks (about 11,000).
