Stopping a physics experiment via...

a lawsuit. Possibly the most silly one I have seen so far.

Even CERN is compelled to have a webpage dedicated to addressing this *safety* concern.

Another geeky moment

Over the weekend, we were in a car driving towards our St. Patrick's Day destination. A fellow passenger (AP) was describing her recipe for baking chocolate muffins. I asked her about the type of chocolate that she used.

AP: No, it's not chocolate powder. It's like those you see coated on donuts in Singapore.
tk: Oh, you meant like nano-rods.
AP: OMG, you are so geeky! It's called chocolate rice, duh.

I am (still) amazed by my descriptions.

Last Public Lecture by Randy Pausch - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"

For those of us still middling along in life and wanting to find our niche. I hope Randy's speech will be an inspiration for you as well.

You can watch his speech on google video.

Audi Car Ad - "Break the cycle"

This TV ad grabbed my attention last week. I had a really good laugh, and the first half of the commercial reminded me a lot of my family's values.

Maybe I should get one. After all, she is already driving an A4.
