Working on my PhD thesis proposal. Title so far: "A Dynamical Systems Theory Approach to Studying the Evolution of Aging, with Some Applications to Human Disease Evolution." Exciting stuff. In my lab they call me "Dr. Death" since I gave a talk about what I've been up to a few weeks ago.

Nice to have time to look at hot naked ladies. Drink local...

Just got a huge scare: my university blocks SuicideGirls if you use wireless but not a LAN connection? OK, that makes no sense. Annoying either way.

My altruistic snake article came out on November 23! I just noticed today! I wrote it when I was an undergraduate and it was another long, uphill battle to get it accepted anywhere. It's about the evolution of the curious behavior of food-sharing in snakes in China. It is one of the first, perhaps the first, articles published on the idea of polymorphic alleles...

Being a top recruit in a top PhD program is fucking insane. Intense. Fun. Intense. Doesn't leave much spare time. Makes you drink at least 2x as much beer as you used to on the rare occasions when you DO have spare time. And even when you do you're always thinking about your research.
On the other hand, would I trade my new...

Happy B-Day honey ! kiss

That really sucks. I can't even imagine the pain involved with a broken knee cap. It's uncomfortable enough when they move out of place. The goal of this surgery was to clean out some cartilage debris and hopefully postpone arthritis for a little while. So fingers crossed that works out.

Yesterday, at about 5pm, my Master's thesis defense was successfully concluded... I am now done here at USF! Awesome!!! I have some edits to make to my thesis, but that is the trivial part. Now it's time for some champagne, and more packing for the University of Utah, where I start my PhD work in August!
My day went great, I drank about...

Actually, I don't know why I was so generous with Marx the other night! I think it may have been the fact that I was drunk on Duvel and Delirium tremens at the time...
I would recommend anyone who thinks the stuff he says about the proletariat owning or controlling the means of production is a good idea to read Jean Baudrillard's...

I'm glad to hear your brother is still doing well. It his so hard to see how much power that sort of thing has over people... it's literally as if it IS the most important thing in their life.

crazyben:

Yes, it is! Literally, they often have these neurotransmitters firing in the pleasure centers of the frontal lobe and neocortex telling them: GET MORE! GET MORE!...
I hope your brother gets out OK and all.
