23 Kevin

Pfft. I'm a 33 Kevin.

No, seriously, I'm 33 and my real name is Kevin.

You might want to be careful about giving RWHN your real name, he might report you to the authorities for being a menace to the children.

 :lulz: :lulz:

Also, damn, how long has it been since I've been here?

That long.

I'll have to remedy that.

I got an email from my Cell Bio professor saying that all of the In Progresses are no longer in progress so we can get our finals and paper 3 back.  :lulz:

Also, "If you haven't applied for summer internships, the deadlines are approaching"

And I'm like, "Oh shit.... Dr. D, tell me more"

Epsilon Rho Iota Sigma

What's interesting about this is that I've been listening to Skeptic's Guide to the Universe from the beginning, and that includes the time that Eris was known temporarily as Xena, and I just got to the bit where Eris was named. I got to the one today where Phil Plait said that it's pronounced Eeris but people will mispronounce it Ehris. I thought to myself, but isn't it spelled with an epsilon?

You ever feel like no matter what you do and how well you do it, you're just not going to make the cut?

Of course you do. It was a stupid question.

But it needs to be asked now and again.

My minister friend is a Colts fan, and he hates the Pats, and he was like, "the Colts would have been using the same balls. I just like saying that the Pats have deflated balls"

Also, it's the Pats. They're the Yankees of football.

    I'm experiencing some mahor cognitive dissonance, and since I know that it's happening, I'm having fun seeing my brain jump around and act all twitchy.

    Basically, the sports team I've given my tribal allegience to has been accused of cheating, and there appears to be evidence to back it up.  Because I give weight to the concept of fairness, my morals are in conflict with my tribe.  It's really fascinating to see what's my mind's been doing.

    • Deny that it even happened. "There's no way they could have had the opportunity."
    • Even if it did happen, it's not cheating because it wasn't utilized. "The game was won on the ground, and Brady had one of his worst passing games all season."
    • We didn't win by cheating, the other team lost by poor play. "Their defense sucked, and their offensive line was non-existent."

    And in a very clever turnaround, pretending to appeal to fairness itself. "Did the officials check the other team's equipment too, or just ours?"

    The thing is, I know how this works, and in all likelyhood even if they are found guilty of cheating, the emotional tribal affiliation will beat out the intellectual morality, and I'll go on being a fan.  Brains are weird.

At the end of the day, it's just a bunch of dudes in plastic armor running on a field.

Yeah.

I don't even know what goes into that.

I feel horrible for both the doctor's and the gunman's families. This is the most horrible thing that both of them are going to experience.

That does sound crazy busy. George is going on a study abroad in Costa Rica. He's also thinking of hitting up Cuba to compare insect species, now that we're reopening diplomatic relations. Gotta say, I'm a bit jealous.

The thing I would be doing is basically monitoring bacterial population changes in my mouth with the use of mouthwash, both in numbers over the course of the day and in species that make it in there.

That does sound interesting. If you do it I'll be curious about the results.

I'm going to try to find a way to do it one way or the other, even if it's not under the aegis of BHCC. I'm also probably going to have to revisit a couple of procedures, but I could probably ask Prof. Guilmette to... huh. Her Environmental Microbiology class was cancelled. Maybe she could be my supervisor, during the time that she would have had the class, providing it wasn't cancelled for any reasons on her end.

Cardiologist shot by son of former patient. Cardiologist in OR, gunman committed suicide. Hospital operations back to normal.

Creepy!

It was in a different building than me, but we all got a shelter in place email. I hope the doctor pulls through.
