182 pgs to summarizes 5 years of school. Kind of scary and kind of depressing at the same time. I get to pick up from Kinkos in a couple hours then dump it off with my committee  
 
Hopefully it'll pass mustard and my talk next Tuesday will go OK.  
 
(and just so nobody gets all fancy-pants...yes, I know it's "pass muster")
..
blarp: good luck next tuesday!
..
glitch p-udding: the spelling of mustard is a moo point.  
 
it's like a cow's opinion. it doesn't matter.
deathburger: That's udderly rediculous.
FuzzyDave: Dude.  
 
you cut the mustard.  
 
you pass muster.  
 
and you call yourself edumacated.  
 
sheesh!  
 
btw: congrats on finishing that damned thing!
ultrafastx: Screw you, hippy!

PAgent: Anyone who finds themself passing mustard should immediately contact a knowledgable urologist.  
 
And Ripley's.
deathburger: And Hebrew National.
darkstar:  
What, the airport?
darkstar:  
Dude, we don't need to see your junk.
PAgent: When I was a lad, we would have field trips to the Seattle Center. We could bring money and buy lunch at the international food circus.  
 
Every year I would get a hot dog with kraut at a place called "Man Bites Dog With Relish And Cuts The Mustard".  
 
Great name. Good Times.
ultrafastx: After WWII, I didn't think you could serve Germans on a Jewish hot dog.
for ufx
smith: I was reading life of Pi again, and found this quote. This seemed like the most appropriate place to post it.  
 
"Sometimes I got my majors mixed up. A number of my fellow religious-studies sudents - muddled agnostics who didn't know which way was up, who were in the thrall of reason, that fool's gold for hte bright- reminded me of the three-toed sloth; and the three-toed sloth, such a beautiful example of the miracle of life reminded me of God.  
 
I never had problems with my fellow scientists. Scientists are a friendly, atheistic, hard-working, beer-drinking lot whos minds are preoccupied with sex, chess and baseball with they are not preoccupied with science."  
ultrafastx: Honeydew keeps telling me to read that book. Maybe I'll read it on the drive to CA.
smith: What? You haven't read it! What's your problem?
fabulon7: I didn't really like it. It wasn't bad, but it didn't interest me.
darkstar: Interesting...  
 
While in my PhD program in Chemistry, I was taking undergrad coursework to make up deficiencies in the Philosophy curriculum, so I could enroll in a joint MA in Philosophy.  
 
I also found the scientists to be a cooler, less uptight group to hang out with. From my experience, the above description is pretty accurate, in the main.
smith: Have you read the book?  
darkstar:  
No I haven't...something you'd recommend, I take it?
smith: yep.  
darkstar: Just scoped it out...sounds interesting.  
 
I'll put it in the queue.  
 
 
Thanks for the recommendation!
