I'm a scientist and an educator. And occasionally, I want to say things that I shouldn't say in front of the students. So, here I am.

Saturn 61, Dr. Lisa 0
Before class, Saturn only had 60 moons. Get back to my computer, and now Saturn has 61 moons. Yes, this was directly relevant to the material covered today. No, I don't make my students memorize these sorts of numbers as the universe would simply mock them anyways!
