So today I did a dumb and took a 15-mile walk in -11℉ weather. And how does my amazing husband reward such ridiculous behavior? He cranks the heat up in the condo and warms up my towel in the dryer while I shower.

I don’t deserve this man.

In other more depressing news, Dr. Hans Rosling died today. A Swedish statistician and educator, he pushed for truth in statistics, data visualization and accessibility, and was big on understanding global development. One of my favorite videos of his is one I showed on the first day of each of my STAT 251 classes back at UI (and to my students last semester, too):

RIP, Dr. Rosling.
