        And the same can be said, non-flippantly and unironically, for Frankie Valentine too.

      It's the Friday before a holiday - normally there are 50+ people in the office. Today there are 6. It's time to learn about railguns.

        And now, getting sidetracked on railgun discoveries, I've discovered that commercial heat pipes (the kinds used in graphics cards and CPU heatsinks) were first invented and tested in Los Alamos.

      I hate getting to a point in the day where I can't do any meaningful work because I'm just so blindsided by unavoidable blistering anger.

        If it weren't for the fact that someone could impersonate my identity online, I really just want a way to obliterate Facebook from all vestiges of my life. I can't stand people I've known and lived with for decades sitting behind the semi anonmyous veil of a computer screen spouting self-centered nationalist bullshit as if politics is the same as football (American or otherwise).

      Everyone in my research team is sick today, might as well learn about the history of particle accelerators.

      Stumbled upon one of the sacred public tomes of nuclear chemistry this morning. Spent two hours today learning about plutonium allotropes.

      Absolute earliest I can get off work today is 10 PM UK time. In all likelihood, I'll probably miss the event.

      It's not often that you're given the opportunity to co-lead the very first tour at a new National Park. I consider myself fortunate today.

        I won't beat around the bush, but it's been communities like this since 2004 - as well as my coworkers in the park Service and Los Alamos - that have given me the kind of support, encouragement, and affirmation to push forward and prove I'm worth something. A something that was sorely lacking from my teachers and family when I was a young kid living in rural Wisconsin.

        Dang! Kind of what I feared - and the composer isn't all that common either. I might have to upload it myself.
