No, conferences are the only places where there is anybody at all who are in the same field as him.

weird cuz i gather that's a fairly standard dating method. at least we went over it in an entry level quaternary geology course in my undergrad. i can't imagine anyone in the field not being able to follow, even though i understand at conferences you have all kinds of people from various geological disciplines there.

It might be that the type of magnetic properties he looked at are different ones. What do I know? I just like knowing that there are fields like that.

He did stress that he's not a geochemist or a geophysicist, but a geologist, if that means anything to you.

I read this as:

that just means he likes rock but doesn't know any math.

and now I don't know what statement I like more. both have made me grin widely on this fair morning.

I liked this. From the Python 2.5 documentation:

"Of course, a language feature would not be worthy of the name ``class'' without supporting inheritance...."

You can't argue with that, though. Inheritence and encapusulation are the two reasons anyone would want to bother with classes.

I guess there's a pun there, too.

i'm printing out patient forms for my upcoming appointment at a rheumatology center, and they have a form for eating a low-purine diet.  i have no idea what purine is, but these are among the foods they say you should avoid:

Anchovies
Bouillon
Brains
Goose
Gravy
Heart
Herrings
Kidneys
Liver
Mackerel
Meat Extracts


uhhh . . . then what am i supposed to eat doc?

Man, it's snowin' like frickin' Canada up innis bitch.

It's been -20 (after wind) the last couple days, which is, what, -4 in American degrees, is that right? (I have no idea, but that's what the conversion web site says).

So I am very likely not going to yoga hut tonight, seeing as how it would involve stepping out of my house.

the conversion's weird, because the difference between each degree is different for celsius (your measurement) than it is for fahrenheit (our measurement). but i just did the math in my head, and yeah, -4, that's correct.

Mother. Fucker.

Yeah, it's snowing hard here. We're supposed to get 6-8 inches tonight and I just got an emergency call from work saying I need to be in by 7:30 tomorrow morning even though I was told previously that I wouldn't need to be in at 7:30 tomorrow morning. Fuck. Me. Sideways.

Yeah, I actually can just ignore the weather when it's bad like this, since I work at home, and everything I could possibly need can be bought within a one minute walk from my house. But it does lead to a little bit of stir-craziness.

I've been thrilled as fuck about the snow today.  I spent about a half-hour of my walk home doing the whole run-then-stop-quick-and-slide thing across the pavement.  We haven't had much snow this year.

And in a stunning turn of events, the snow appears to be done much earlier than anticipated. Let's hope the snow removal people take advantage of this valuable reprieve and tomorrow's rush hour isn't the bloodletting it looked like it might be only mere hours ago.

it's mid-february and there hasn't been a snowfall all winter in richmond that actually stuck. there was one that lasted a few hours and dusted car rooftops, but that's about it. i'm really happy about this.

That was winter here last year. It rained a lot, but didn't snow much until about February and when it did, it was a couple small storms that were gone in a few days. I definitely prefer that to the fucking bullshit we've been having this year.
