Re: Happiness

Congrats starry and Som! Turns out my work is in danger of getting scooped and I'm now trying to balance classes and teaching with tons and tons of labwork, but on the plus side, my lab is the best work environment anyone could ever hope for and my advisor is the greatest advisor in the long history...

Re: The movie thread

Go to your nearest IMAX theater and watch Gravity. DO IT NOW. Wow indeed, even in a plain ordinary theater! Saw it again tonight- also in IMAX, but I imagine it's pretty incredible on a normal screen as well. Just an amazing experience and I can't recommend it enough to everyone. You DEFINITELY wan...

Re: The movie thread

Go to your nearest IMAX theater and watch Gravity. DO IT NOW. Yeah, I'll probably go see this with my Dad next week.. we usually see all the sci-fi stuff together. Been hearing really good things about this one, and I am already a fan of the director (well, all three of the "amigo" directors actual...

I thought of The Decemberists immediately upon seeing that name (assuming that's who you're referring to).
Heck yes!

He won, btw. Now over $262k in earnings and no signs of slowing down.

Hazards of Love. Took 19 tries to break his maiden, spent a while in the Louisiana claiming ranks. Now at age 6, he's won four straight and nine of his last thirteen starts (including a last-out win in a starter allowance at Churchill), and he's hit the board in 31 of 46 starts. He's entered in a ha...

Re: Good luck Vince

Pretty painful in retrospect, but thanks for posting- love seeing these kinds of intersections between my favorite team and favorite sport, and it's a bit of free publicity for racing too.

I offer opinion, just like you and others here do. And you may be correct. The rail may not have been dead. However, the mere fact that you say you are correct does not make it so. I contended it was dead offering the evidence that Revolutionary was unable to gain traction and advance against Golde...

Re: 2 year olds of 2013

Purple Sky (Pulpit x Tessa Blue) broke his maiden at 2nd asking at CD on Saturday. I saw him run in the slop at the Spa on the Woodward undercard and he looked pretty good running 3rd that day to Honor Code. If nothing else it validates Honor Code a bit that the 2nd and 3rd place finishers in that ...

I watched Twin Peaks and now I'm sad because nothing on TV is as good. Only thing that comes close for me is Hannibal, which isn't coming back until forever :(

I'm not much good at street parking (never actually learned how to do it, since it wasn't on the test), but I have learned how to parallel park on the opposite side of the road... that took some getting used to and it's often pretty ugly. My advisor is presenting my work at a conference tomorrow. I'...
