Spam can be funny.

I just cleaned out my spam-box and the subject line of one of the messages read, "SIGN THIS CONTRACT."

Duh.... ok, I will. You convinced me.

Who Needs Cable?

Who needs cable when you have broadband? Becky showed me a website called where you can watch nearly any tv show online. They even have old episodes of Alf!

I didn't think getting a postdoc would be so hard. I found out today that I was turned down for another position (this one was in Paris). I've been applying for any postdoc that I would be even remotely qualified for and interested in and none have come through so far. I think I have pretty good qualifications, but apparently there are people with a lot more experience and talent out there than I have. I wonder what an astronomy PhD does if he can't get one of the few postdocs offered. Do they just go into teaching and give up on the research? It seems like once you move away from the research, it would be really hard to get back into it. What a bummer.

The First 6 Minutes of The Dark Knight.


Which Republican candidate would you rather have as president?

Here's the tally:

0% said Huckabee
25% said Paul
75% said McCain

Out of all the Republicans that were running, I think McCain is probably the best choice.

Perfect Timing.

Great. While I'm looking for a job, the country is headed into a longer lasting and more severe downturn than has been seen in 20 years. This should be challenging.

Which is your favorite season?

75% voted for Summer
25% (that's me) voted for Winter.

Am I the only one that likes snow?

This is probably the most !@#$ed-up thing I've ever read. Not only did the latest al Qaeda bombing in Iraq kill 98 people in two pet markets (also killing an untold number of dogs, cats, monkeys, etc.), but they strapped bombs to and remotely detonated two mentally disabled women who probably didn't know what they were doing. Everything about this story is an outrage.
