I'm not dead yet!!!

Just to prove I have not dropped off of the face of the earth, here is a little post. During the weekend I destroyed a significant number of increasingly valuable hydrocarbons while I drove the family to the southern-most Dakota. I've been a bit detained by that incident.

Ψ*Ψ at CBC[1] recently[2] posted about poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG). This reminded me of the many ways I have use PEG in my life. From my Ph.D. research to eye-drops to laxatives and more. My next post[3] will detail all of the wonderful things PEG has done for me.

Until then, enjoy this:

[2] OK, 'recently' is relative. It's been a while, but I've been busy.

It might interest you (probably it won't) to hear that our lab has two summer undergrads from smallish schools in Minnesota.

Just for fun, make them say, "My house-boat has a new roof." If they sound funny, they are true Minnesotans.

I love Brainiac.

Not the robot that tries to kill Superman from time to time. He's bad news.

I can do science, me.

I personally like when they play golf with the explosives, which turns out to be something akin to a huge flame absorption experiment. Pretty colors rule.
