the only thing that sucks worse than jackson's e&m is *studying* for a test based on jackson's e&m. i'm very glad i'm nearly done with classes, cuz i'm getting really bad with this whole studying thing.
From the Oregonian...
Jewelry gifts make a heartfelt statement, whether it's a simple token of affection or a grandiose display of passion. For example, silver earrings might say, "I like you a lot," whereas an eight-carat purple diamond ring announces, "Without you I shall waste my life as an empty shell of a man." Or, er, "I'm sorry, baby."
actually, you're really not allowed to do that, but it's also an excuse to link to a fun and shallow little popularity contest. c'mon people, get out the vote!
why it sucks to be an experimentalist: I'm stuck here sitting on my butt taking data, when I would rather go work out or goof off or something. And I can't just put it off until later b/c all the data needs to be taken in one set so as to minimize drift/thermal effects.
why it doesn't suck: kinda like running code that actually works, my "work" tonight consists of sitting on my butt reading/writing blog entries while turning a knob every 5-20 seconds and recording some values every 12 minutes.
[which is much much better than trying to read tricky papers about mott phase transitions and banging my head against the wall.]
for reaching the double-digit post level, well done! 🙂 Brian really needs to get his butt in gear, with the smallest tally of a whopping zero.
This could be worse, but anyway...
I've spent all of the afternoon trying to copy a HW solution set so that it makes some sense. It wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that a lot of the problems are really long and the existing answer set was written with, um, marginal handwriting.
It's getting old.
