Be a Tourist from Home

The Internet continues to provide in new and fascinating ways. Already, the Internet has made it possible to interact with other human beings, get new movies, order food and so much more without leaving home. However, it has not been possible to travel to far off places and see what there is to see; that has changed. With the advent of Google Maps (Satellite) it became possible to see far off places and take up Google Sightseeing.

For a few nice sights to start with, try:

I ate its heart with melted butter

At home a while back I was talked into eating an artichoke and I actually happened to like the thing. Since then I hadn't eaten another but, as the result of a good spring salad I had two days ago, I decided to eat some plant matter today and while I was at the grocery store getting such necessities as Oreos, milk, cereal (Cracklin' Oat Bran, oh yeah!), and such, one such item turned out to be an artichoke. I cooked the thing as was prescribed by the Joy of Cooking and ate it with some melted butter. So yeah, artichokes are good, even in the opinion of a primarily carnivorous person such as myself. Now for chips and dip.

I need more robotic arms

I saw Revenge of the Sith (Star Wars: Episode III) today and it gave me a thought that Spiderman 2 gave me: I am decidedly lacking in the four robotic arms department. Aside from that, it was a fairly pretty movie with amusing fighting and special effects. As far as plotskis go, it's pretty much a linear interpolation between the end of Attack of the Clones (Star Wars: Episode II) and the beginning of Star Wars (Star Wars: Episode IV).

If you want a real review, bug someone else. If you can give me robotic arms, for the love of god, please do.

That Arnold Guy

Yesterday I went to Arnold's Arboretum with a bunch of friends. The place is absolutely beautiful and it has some terribly exquisite flora. Another point worth noting is the sheer size of the arboretum; it's enormous (~2mi x ~.5mi). The arboretum houses the Larz Anderson Bonsai Collection, which is probably the single most moving thing that I have ever seen. I highly recommend a visit to the arboretum for anyone.

No More Work For Me

I have just finished the last of the work that I need to do at MIT. In a few hours, I will go to campus print out a few things, hand in a few things, go to a few classes and then be all done.

Also, I decided that I might as well pull an all-nighter because it would be my last chance to justifiably do so at MIT.

No sleep study for me

For the past week, I've been courting a sleep research study as a means of entertaining myself and making some easy money. The plan was to take part in a 32 day in patient study shortly after graduation and walk away with a cool $6k. Unfortunately, it turns out my current sleep schedule is too erratic to make me an acceptable participant in their study. All I have to say about that is, shucks.

Inorganic Polymers: The Paper

As one of the last things that I have to do this week (in order to graduate), I have to write a 15+ page paper on the subject of Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers. I know enough about Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers to fill, at most, two or three pages. The only time that I'm going to have to write this paper is the next 28 hours. So as to be able to accomplish this task, I have obtained the following requisite supplies:

  • 1x Ray, N. H. - Inorganic Polymers
  • 1x Mark, James E.; et al. - Inorganic Polymers
  • 1x Archer, Ronald D. - Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers
  • 1x 2 liter bottle Mountain Dew
  • 1x 23.5 fluid ounce can Jolt Cola
  • 1x 23.5 fluid ounce can Jolt Blue
  • 4x 6.5 ounce Shur Fine Sausage Pizza
  • 1x 17 ounce box Cracklin' Oat Bran
  • 1x 18 ounce container Duncan Hines Whipped Vanilla Frosting
  • 1x 1 gallon bottle Hood 2% Milk

TTC Happenings

I didn't happen to meet any time travelers but I did hear some interesting talks on the matter and I got to see a DeLorean. If any time travelers were looking for me, you'll have to try to find another way to meet me. Aside from that, I really want a DeLorean.
