Going to be teaching high school students physics this morning. We'll be showcasing demos. Mine is on sound.

All fantastic and wonderful and I love teaching kids and yadda yadda and I think they're the path to the future and every single thing we tell them...

IT'S SO GODDAMNED EARLY IN THE MORNING

I'm having my cup of coffee but I'm still tired. And I only had like 4 hours, I just lay in bed for 2 of them tossing and turning and not being able to sleep.


Ze Coffee, they do nothink.

Do they come by their own choosing? If not, mentally prepare to see a lot of teenagers looking down at their phones the whole time while you try to make something sound interesting, they clearly aren?t interested in ...

Do they have a choice? It's school. If all else fails, just show them XKCD.

Own choosing.

And we have things that make sparks, obnoxious noises, and we burn stuff outside including a penny just by using the sun. We also have a soldering station where they get to make a souvenir for themselves. I think they're going to enjoy it. Each station takes like 15 minutes I fink.

Brb shower and getting ready for this.

Another coincidence: I was searching my iTunes for another song to play after Gimme Shelter. I decided on King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man. However, that exact same song came on shuffle. There are over 800 songs in my iTunes.
Don't get me wrong, I love King Crimson, but the sound quality of the recordings of "In the Court..." available is so shit. I just read on wiki that they finally found the master tapes. Do you own the 2010 re-release and is it any better, sound-wise?

I own the 21st Century Schizoid Band version. (Yes, I'm that lame.) And no, despite being recorded in the 21st century, the sound quality of 21st Century Schizoid Band songs aren't that great either. :(

That ALWAYS happens to me. "Hey, that was a good song, you know what I want to listen to next?" BAM, it's on next shuffle. And my playlist alone has over 800 songs.

@ash: will do!

@blaro: I had an experience yesterday like that. We were in group exercise, some shitty music playing. I was like "I wish they'd have some ethnic or indian stuff or even something mixed like 'Bombay', that would be awesome". Suddenly "bombay" started playing.

Also, I'm here 20 minutes early. Noone else is here. Wondering what to do, so of course, I explore the bathroom in the physics department. DUDE. The only stall in the mens bathroom is HUGE. You could fit 30 people in it!

They got a hold of some portable quantum tunneling technology too, but so far they've only used it to move cubes onto buttons.

There were rumors of them making gardening equipment, but it turned out that the rake was a lie.

One shall not make fun of the handicapped, but his argument clearly does not have hands and feet:



The problems start before even getting into the subject matter of homophobia and religions distortions: What he is trying to say is that "Homo sapiens shall not do homo sex".

I am happy to confirm that I am a practising homo sapiens.

One day I might even get good at it.

Handicapped? Quite aside from the fact that the word went pretty much out of use years ago, isn't that some kind of tricycle rather than a wheelchair? Of course, going by the signs, perhaps you meant mentally disabled (or is that also called something else these days - intelligentially challenged or something, probably).
Nice bum.

My mother made me a homosexual.

If you give her the wool she'll make one for you as well.
