I probably won’t be writing much on the old blog this week. I want to start working hardcore on my thesis and get it done quickly enough that I’m able to take some time off this summer.
I might have to blog though, to keep from going insane. I find it hard to exclusively write scientific papers. There is not enough creativity and humour (somewhat ironic, given I am currently writing about creativity) in them. In my thesis, I tried writing stuff about zombies and eating brains, but my advisor wrote a note saying “I’d remove this paragraph” on it. Bummer. Well, in a few short years, when I’m Doctor Phronk and calling all the shots, I’ll infuse zombies into every paper I write and nobody can stop me. If journal editors don’t like it, I can publish my genius contributions to science elsewhere.
Here is one thing I learned today while writing about technology in my thesis: You should not capitalize internet (i.e. write it as “Internet”). Here is why it is dumb. This probably applies to many other words that people capitalize for no Good reason.
Oh and I saw Nacho Libre on Friday. A good movie, but not on the same level as Napoleon Dynamite. Worth seeing if you like that kind of humour though, and if you like Jack Black. Personally I can’t wait for the Tenacious D movie.
Anyway, that’s it. Sorry for the boring pictureless post.
