the joy/horror of being an experimental physicist: today i played with blocks. i had to make them first, and make holes in them, and get their dimensions accurate to within 5 thousandths of an inch, but nonetheless that's what i did. then i put heavy things on top of them and was gratified when they didn't fall over.

oh, and i didn't blind myself today, either. any day where the beer/blind quotient is infinite goes down as a good day in my book. (and don't anybody mention l'hopital's rule for 0/0.)


Post a playlist

I think it would be cool for all of the [real] users on this blog to post a playlist. This month's question is: If you could only have one CD of music out of your mp3 collection, what songs would you put on it? Bonus points if you're on the subnet and you can share the playlist with iTunes.

When I Wake Up Tomorrow -- The Perishers
Something Pretty -- Patrick Park
The Blower's Daughter -- Damien Rice
Lay Lady Lay -- Bob Dylan
Wicked Game -- Chris Isaak
Mr. Brightside -- The Killers
Cool Gwen -- Stefani
Let Go -- Frou Frou
Life in Mono -- Mono
Fade Into You -- Mazzy Star
The Scientist -- Coldplay
Home and dry -- Pet Shop Boys
Three Libras -- A Perfect Circle
Letting The Cables Sleep -- Bush
Your Ghost -- Kristin Hersh

My songs will be in ".blogsongs" on my computer. Sorry that so many of them are protected, you can come in and listen to them at lunch.



i have yet to figure out whether i just suck, or am unlucky, or a combination of both. i think the sample size may be too small, but most nights i leave feeling that i didn't misplay too many hands, and yet i'm more often down a few bucks at least.
