I'm bored.

  • Imagine you are sipping tea or coffee while discussing various issues with a broad and diverse network of students, colleagues, and friends brought together by the common bond of physics, graduate school, and the physics GRE.

Often the best data is the most fake.

Twistor cheated. He was disqualified after taking a tip from will. I win.

hahaha. As of Thursday, your only hope to complete this data collection is if you're doing a neutrino detection experiment with particles moving at speed v = c*sqrt(1-1/gamma^2), where gamma = (3000 days)/(3 days) = 1000, and you were taking the data in the neutrino's frame of referenece.

If it just that... I was talking about my other research project that just got a new grad student, who i get to train :D I get to play with liquid Argon and Germanium from June 2nd onward.... at least I am at "home." (I can only hope my liver will survive this after nearly 1.5 years of close to abstinence... this is what american beer and drinking age does to a european)

I got another 4 done yesterday... at this rate i will be done in 3 years and i am graduating in 1.... bye bye publication
