I thought your analogies were great (and I am a practicing physicist who has taught university quantum mechanics). I just wanted to add a recommendation for a book. It's getting a little old, but the attitude and insights on perspective are unchanged: Isaac Asimov's "A View from a Height."

Yeah, and Spock prime would totally drive a Tesla.

Just read that you're going to be on The Big Bang Theory this fall. I'd say you get lucky sometimes! ;)

I do the same thing with "public" and "pubic".

Just checked back and saw the edit. Sending good mojo your way. Take that, stupid Murphy and his stupid Law.

Aaron is a cool guy. I met him at DragonCon 2007, and said I had a friend who knew him. I didn't realize how well he knew him, because he pulled out his blackberry, called him up, and handed me the phone! Maybe it was a test? Probably not, because he was a really great guy to talk to. I told him I was sorry that [spoilery stuff from the end of season 3 removed for your sake Wil], and he told me it was going to be very cool.

That's the standard shirt.woot way of doing things. They sell a special item for $10 until it's sold out or until the day is over (whichever comes first), then offer it for $15 after that, until it's popularity falls out of the top 20. Every shirt is offered the same way. $15 for a shirt is not much. Sure, $10 would be better, but "the early bird gets the worm" etc etc.

I'm still reading WATCHMEN, but my pace seems to be accelerating. Very jealous of your MTV gig. Congratulations, and enjoy the dream!

I met Will Atherton, who played the evil professor in Real Genius, back at Dragon*Con 2007. I told him I was a physics professor, and his agent/handler said, "Please don't tell me that the popcorn thing wouldn't work!" He was a nice guy, and he seemed a little surprised about how much a physicist would enjoy that movie. Between Real Genius, Ferris Bueller, and Better Off Dead, I had all the nerdy one-liners I needed for a long time.

You might think it sounds like a "yeah. duh" thing, but I've noticed in life that the "yeah, duh" things are often the things I screw up the most. It's good to hear these things over and over so that they become part of your basic knowledge, accessible without having to think too hard about it. I also think this advice applies to a lot of other situations, like job interviews or public speaking. You've got to have a good time to do it right.

Totally understood- totally not being a dick. I like following your tweets because they are funny, sometimes clever even, and link to things I often find funny, clever, and nerdalicious.

OK- I will be the first to admit that I am only NOW reading Watchmen. I bought the bound version a few weeks ago and just started picking it up 2 days ago. So far, it's great. I can't believe how long it took me to notice details like how the pattern on Rorschach's mask changes from panel to panel.

Wow- I didn't always love Wesley, but I do always look forward to all the new stuff you do. A friend of mine uses "Urge to kill rising..." so often that I can't imagine not understanding that reference.

Looks like a cut-away from Family Guy to me... "Hey Lois, remember when Gary Coleman and I watched Akira on the Disney channel last week?"

Hope it works out, Wil. Maybe they've seen your NUM3ERS and Criminal Minds work and are re-thinking. Besides, a "cameo" doesn't sound like a part you'd need to audition for, does it? (I really don't know- not in the field.)

Looks more like a screen grab from "Love, Actually" where he's dancing around #10 Downing St. It must be my frakked up eyes, but the first time I saw this image, I thought it was Michael J. Fox!

I've re-watched Obama's acceptance speech a few times now. I can't remember the last time I've wanted to watch ANYTHING POLITICAL more than once! :)
