I haven't been checking the introductions, so I'll just address this generally:

FUCK OFF.

So, first day on the job, a mile and half up in the air.  Talking with engineers about robots the size of sewing needles that adjust fiberoptic cables for trapping images of entire galaxies, to measure their velocity with respect to one another.  The engineers know their job and they assume I'm educated on everything unless I tell them differently, in which case they patiently explain.

My boss is a fairly brilliant scientist who enjoys the ins and outs of DOE/NASA/NSF bureaucratic wrangling.  His boss is the smartest woman I've ever met, who shares my enthusiasm for the visitor program, for getting people up the mountain to look at other stars and how exoplanets are inferred from a star's wobble, and will geek out on a moment's notice, which is fucking awesome.

My crew are all professionals who genuinely like each other, and most of them seem to have taken a shine to me.

I am in charge of - among many other things - life support.  LIFE SUPPORT.  Scotty, my scabby arse!

I changed my mind.  There is a heaven.

Ho-ho-hoooooly shit man. That's the coolest shit I've heard in a long time, hands down.

I made a chicken noodle-rice-lentil soup because I'm indecisive, using leftover drippings. It's okay.

I am a sucker.   :lulz:

TGRR,
Charged all by himself.

Yeah I posted about it in here after going on a spree and kinda burned myself out a little. I'm still in, though.

It turned out great but I need more practice carving a chicken. Cooking a Cornish game hen on Monday for practice was a good choice. Now I have meals for 3 or 4 days ready.

So what I'm getting here is that the dankness of memes is a matter of national security. We need our memes to be more dank than the terrorists.

Even if that's not true I'm going to keep believing it.

If you stare at a bird while it's in the oven it gets embarrassed and won't soak in the juices like the filthy harlot it is

How the hell does a person get chili burns all over their face?

With great effort, I assume.

So, Dan Carlin's podcast "Common Sense" has been talked about a little bit on FB today, so I wanted to bring up... the Common Sense with Dan Carlin Facebook group. It is, shall we say, a treasure trove of asshats with a few okay sorts.

What kind of people are in there? Well, let's just say they're already REALLY MAD at Roger and Nigel, they just don't know it yet.

It's kind of hilarious, because the most vocal members of the group are well below the bar set by the podcast they claim to be fans of. Carlin himself is not active in the group.

A few standouts:

Fred, who thinks about global warming every day. The kind of guy who thinks that climate change is not real because Al Gore flies in airplanes. If humanity was killed by an asteroid, Fred would be ecstatic because at least it would mean that the climate scientists were wrong about climate change being the thing that kills us.

Mat, who is the Lord Regent of Strawmania. He can strawman literally any argument you make. It's almost uncanny.

Cam, who I just discovered today is a Dawkins apologist and thinks Ahmed deserved what he got for that clock. He's super mad that people came out in support after the incident.

I'd been keeping it to myself for a while but I decided to share the fun. Being sincere and reasonable is definitely the right way to go with these guys.
