Thank you! It takes me all week to read through all these, often having to stop and recover from a blown mind.

I'm a bit confused about the strep throat graph. What qualifies as an "encounter"? Are encounters only visits with with a possible strep infection, or would something like a broken arm qualify as an encounter?

I also liked the video embedded in the New Yorker article about Kelly Slater's wave machine. Having surfed growing up, I think that thing is an abomination to surfing. Finnegan captures that thought in the last part starting at 7:00 to the end. https://www.newyorker.com/video/watch/the-backstory-surfing-on-kelly-slater-s-machine-made-wave
