Check it out: a video of the Eastman Percussion Ensemble performing at the Kennedy Center.  The first piece is very cool.  It's Ionisation by Edgard Varèse.  My little brother is just left of center, as you look at the stage.  I'm way proud of him.

why: MANDATORY 10¢ elliptercise

Why is it that I was really interested in attending this presentation on finding and getting a postdoc position until they said it was MANDATORY and ATTENDANCE WILL BE TAKEN?


Why is it that two gas stations kitty-corner from each other have a 10¢/gal price difference?


Why is it that 30 minutes of strenuous exercise on an elliptical at the gym (aka, elliptercise) didn't make me sore the next day, but I'm aching after pulling a few weeds?
