It is as open ended question: is it somehow sad to buy an album the day it is released, because you can't bear to be without it for those hours?

Any which way, I dispel the aspersions some have doubtlessly cast in their minds that this is just a junket to taste beers and wines and eat expensive meals and go to gigs and generally bum around the world at other people's expense in the photo section: I provide GRAPHS.

Yes, graphs. The value of graphs is illustrated thusly:
here
here
here
here
here
& here.

It should be noted that the technique outlined above worked stupendously on 2 supervisors today, and I expect (or hope for) similar results from the remaining 3. The last comic is eerily true of my graphs: they are indeed the first tangible results I have to show for 2 years. Sadly, the 2 on the left are wrong but they're preeeety. When the dollar amount of 2 years scholarship from Physics and Science, a travel scholarship from the Uni, travel insurance from my Melbourne supervisor and 1 month's stipend from my Canadian supervisor are added up, each of the remaining 3 (probably) correct graphs is worth roughly AU$15,300.00. That, as I said, is each. You could trade one of those graphs for a crappy elastic-band-driven automobile.

So, you support your argument with links to six comics that all share the same punch line?
Your Bludge - Fu is to strong, I yield. You may claim your prize here http://www.centrelink.gov.au.


Also it’s interesting that in your last post you made mentioned of that strangely compelling saga that is “Geoff and the G-word.”
As you were typing about it in far off frosty Candida, he was writing what could possibly be the final chapter, using a technique (we who know him) like to call “Geoffing” it up.

Re: Graphs hey
Sadly, it think very little came from the tax payer. Government doesn't fund universities like it used to. More, I'm getting something more for the HECS I will pay one day.

Nice Limmerick though.

After a brief instant messenger discussion with Willy, we have decided that the most likely cause of shadows not being parallel is based on perspective. This is due to not seeing the shadows from a flat plane, but rather from a point receptor that is your camera. The camera then projects this onto a flat plane that is your photo. If you were to bend the photo around with the same curvature as the field of view of the lens, or if you were to project it onto a spherical surface rather than a flat one, then you would probably find that the shadows all straightened out. That's the best explanation we can come up with without having a few hours to kill at the pub with beer and peanuts.

Also, in Picture 13, what is this 'Ultimate Tournament' of which you speak? Or is it 'Unreal Tournament'?

And what do these horribly expensive graphs represent anyways?

ERRATA: Yes, I mean Unreal Tournament and I was was wrong in an earlier chain when I implied NHL is football. It is, indeed, hockey.

The graphs are direct and exchange proton + carbon-12 s- & p-wave coupled channel potentials using Cohen & Kurath model shell model 2-body potentials and their estimates of the 1st 3 eigenstates of the carbon.

I will read your optics bizo later. I am tired and emotional (both the real and Mike Willesee kinds) and just got bad news from that damned consulate. I'm going to bed.

Pfft. Of course it's not sad to buy the album the day it comes out. I, doyenne of cool that I am (*snort*), have been known to queue, even, for an album on the day it comes out, and there's nothing sad about me.....

*crickets*

*tumbleweed*

Er.

Nice graphs in yer photo gallery, but you need a grid on the snow to before you can prove any theory on the relative angle of shaddows wrong.

Re: graphs
Ah, good point. I will see if I can recapture the same phenomenon...
