If you're listening to a talk and there's a podium, which of the following do you prefer as a listener in the room?

(This is a question of preference, not a "right/wrong" question. Boosts OK.)

Let’s start looking forward to it: how will YOU celebrate the utter humiliation and potential annihilation of the Tory party on 4th July?

Hey friends.

If - and it is a very big if - I wanted to start a PhD in about a year's time, what should I do now to prepare?

I got my MSc a year ago. I haven't started looking at any specific programmes yet.

UK-based tips especially appreciated!

@Edent how's your mental health? I'm not asking for an answer, but if you have any issues make sure you're stable / ok before embarking on a PhD, it will show to you any cracks in your mental state.

If you blow on a dandelion seed head in just the right way, you get to meet one of these cuties. Nice.

Who is going to @emf this year?
I should probably try to be a bit more social and actually talk to people this time. Rather than just be shy from afar.

When it's my turn to be god, I'm making all scientific instruments out put well commented, documented CSV files.
UV-Vis Spectrometer - CSV
Profilometer - CSV
Raman - CSV
SEM - CSV
Hubble Space Telescope - CSV.

EVERYTHING for CSV.

Until then I'll just sulk at this data I have that's not entirely commented as to what units it's using.

There was a brief conversation about booping the hogs yesterday, but I felt it was a bit of a cheat to boop a nose you'd drawn yourself.

I should have left it there, but when I was sorting files I thought "maybe I could make it more difficult somehow, and therefore not a cheat".

So anyway, have a blindfolded double-boop because for a split-second that made sense to me, and that's all it needs sometimes.

This happens frequently when I'm on the bike. Yes, you may have waved me on, but I can see over the top of your car and see what's happening in the next lane.

Serious question for @emf @info will the mains power supplies in camping areas be ok for running a kettle? I've got to have lots of Tea.

🆕 blog! “It was twenty years ago today”

I wrote my first public blog post on 2004-05-11. I immediately followed it up with a brief review of my BlackBerry. I kept up the blogging for a few months, then it trickled off. I preferred posting on Usenet and other primitive forms of social media. But, by 2007, I was back to blogging on […]

@Edent just checked mine, it's 20 this year too, but not as frequently updated as yours.

This cartoon is true.
I've been squeezing my toothpaste tube for months now. It still makes toothpaste. The pressure inside the tube is now high enough that it's probably fusing together the raw granules of spacetime to make the toothpaste. I should check if the ICECube neutrino detector sees a signal every time I brush my teeth.

@johncarlosbaez they say there's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes. The only clothes that would have worked for that rain, would have been a duck's.
