LG* – Are we really gonna do this?
TB – Sure, I got the password to write posts. Are you chicken?
LG – I just want to make sure this is all on you.
TB – Fine, its all me. But if this goes well I don’t want to hear any carping from you later…
Overheard at the coffee shop:
Two young ladies talking:
1st YL – Oh, Dwayne can’t join us for drinks after work, his department is going through a peer review.
2nd YL – Oh no problem, my Damon works at the port as a wharf inspector – he’s always doing a pier review.
Two Entomology grad students:
1st GS – You’ve seen this study on effects of neonics on hymenoptera, right?
2nd GS – Yeah, what a buzz kill.
Later that evening overheard at the pub:
Two Statistics grad students:
1st GS – No, that won’t work unless we populate the operational matrix with an orthogonal set of eigenvectors from a Poisson distribution.
2nd GS – Dude, you are SO wasted…
1st GS – Nah, just yanking your Markov chain.
Two Math grad students at final call:
1st GS – You’re drunk.
2nd GS – Prove it.
Two random dudes:
1st RD – Dude, you’re soaked and smell like a keg!
2nd RD – Yeah, I asked the philosophy geeks over there what Wittgenstein, Popper, Hayek, and Feyerabend all have in common with Hitler. They got all impertinent and said “NOTHING!” …so I pointed out they’re all dead white guys who were born in Austria. Then they gave me a free drink.
* LG is Lemuel Gulliver, TB is The Bucket… who will also fill the role of Keeper of the Bucket List.
