I was going to make one of my more awful puns about the composition of the planet-like object Eris, now estimated to be nearly 30% larger than Pluto (link).
But saying “All hail Eris!” isn’t possible, because they think it has a significant amount of rocky material; it’s not just a big ball of ice.
I was leaving work today, and carrying two books. In one hand, a copy of Advanced Perl Programming, and in the other, a book on Haskell.
The person I passed in the hallway noticed, and laughed. “It’s a good thing you have those well separated.”
I guess you have to be a complete geek to get any humor out of that. It’s been that kind of week.
On Monday I sat next to someone who played Crackdown all the way through. In like six hours. I’ve barely been able to clobber the first three or four bosses. I am humbled and awed.
