Love the owl!

But I have to confess that the first time I watched I was thinking: "is this guy Brazilian? He looks Brazilian." Then the friend muttered something in Portuguese and I knew. Sixth sense. » 2/05/14 10:45pm 2/05/14 10:45pm

As someone who doesn't come to GT anymore and came today only for procrastination, I must say this post made me embarrassed of being away.

Congrats! You seem to be the kind of mom that people should have, so there you go! Be a mom again!

And if you ever feel bad during the deformed (alternatively formed?) phase that… » 12/12/13 12:10am 12/12/13 12:10am

As someone who went to a modernist campus abroad for undergrad, I find this list relevant only if you think college campus implies the classic Ivy-esque look. You what I'm talking about, the aristocratic one.

It is true that we are brainwashed into finding modern campi less academic, which explains why I felt the… » 11/02/13 8:01pm 11/02/13 8:01pm

Hey! Sorry it took me a month to respond. Work has been crazy, and to be honest I haven't been to groupthink at all recently. But hey, I didn't forget about you! Does this count? » 10/16/13 11:59pm 10/16/13 11:59pm

Hey! I was about to post this. Good job.

I think a great link is Sean Carroll's take on it. He even posted her original banned post!

He wrote my favorite General Relativity book, as well as many amazing posts about science, and many other on how to make science more inclusive. » 10/12/13 11:04pm 10/12/13 11:04pm

I am a scientist, I guess. And I would say 100% of my work is outside of a lab since... hum... I'm a theorist? I sit around and do math on my desk. I also drink coffee and go home to do math on my couch and drink more coffee.

...yep. No field work, sorry. » 9/28/13 6:32pm 9/28/13 6:32pm

Is the beer always bad? In my department people get out of their way to make sure the beer is good. Maybe we are heavy drinkers?

Also, the hipster chapter in my town is very strong on craft beers, so that's also a thing. » 9/27/13 5:58pm 9/27/13 5:58pm

Sorry to ask, and by all means don't respond if you are not comfortable, but why?

You would need to forget a lot of grammar, forget what drag queens are, then start negging, then start a path of becoming him. » 9/27/13 3:54pm 9/27/13 3:54pm

I don't know what is more hilarious, given that you are posing your opinion on scientific issues: the fact that the applications that you proposed have little to no relation to the phenomena described, the fact that you don't grasp how quantum computers would be much better to your life than jet packs, or the fact… » 9/27/13 2:45pm 9/27/13 2:45pm

I never measured my dick. Honestly. I mean, I have a very accurate notion of its size, after all, I see it everyday.

That said, I never grabbed a ruler and measured it because WTF AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NEXT?

It's not like I'm going to publish the number on Facebook, or starting writing a diary so that I can use that as a… » 9/26/13 1:29pm 9/26/13 1:29pm

1) I think mustaches have a very concrete role on the denial of self harm. You see, mustaches currently lead a century old movement of blade negation; this was handed to them by their parents, the mutton chops, and it is now being passed forward to the Millennial members of the family, the scruffs.

Why would anyone… » 9/25/13 11:11pm 9/25/13 11:11pm
