The perceived identity politics of Being A Buckeye can, at times, make me want to Be A Buckeye less. And that is a painful thing to admit and have to deal with.

Also, since we're confessing: I don't know if I enjoy this website as much as I used to? Feels like it's passed me by as it's grown into a leviathan.

I was really hoping to see The Year of Glad used in this article, or Les Assassins en Fauteuils Roulants. :(

Once we were in The Library and asked Cricket how much it'd cost to play Ring of Death. He looked at us, looked at the prices up above the bar, and then at the bottles behind the bar, and said 'Hell, I guess $3.75 sounds right.' My roommate tossed the straw and it landed over Jack Daniels and Ouzo, so we spent $5 each on a 2 parts Jack/1 part Ouzo shot and a PBR chaser.

The Library is a shining city on a hill, a beacon of all that is good in this world.

Science as exploring is my favorite thing because it helps me be excited about work

Comment 04 Jun 2015

Born too late to explore the world, born too early to explore the stars. I guess science is more than discovery & exploration though.

If you think that the LHC work isn't 'exploring the world' or that there aren't parts of the world left to discover, you're wrong.

FWIW, I'd put the most exciting time in science at the turn of the 20th century. Incredible physics and chemistry work over a twenty year span.

I agree – those things are amazing. For plaster walls, a drywall anchor works fairly well, or the toggles that pop back behind the plaster to spread out the weight. Anchoring into mortar is a little trickier, as old mortar is often soft.

I agree re: the numbers. I'd recommend something to remind you of the specific race, or a winged foot added in. For a while, I planned to get a tattoo after every marathon that I complete. I stopped getting tattoos after two races, because every idea I came up ended up more complicated than the previous idea.

Since I cant seem to upload the picture bear with me as I try to describe it.

I think it is good that you are getting a tattoo of a bear.

'Teaching' at an R1 university = getting grant money, pretty much full-stop.

There is room for arts but I think it is ridiculous to think that it is even close to the same importance of sciences, engineering, or business.
