Talk Like a Physicist Day

Saturday, March 14, 2009

In honor of Pi Day (3.14), it's "Talk Like a Physicist" Day! So in the spirit of my science fan-girl status, here I am, talking like a physicist.
This morning I'm putting together a lap robe for the VA Hospital. Empirical Data indicates it's going to be quite warm. My First Order Approximation is that it will be the correct size and shape not to get caught in the wheels of the wheelchairs.

The Christian Taliban thinks we are a "Christian Nation." That's Not Even Wrong.

I plan on spending the rest of the day in my Ground State, although there is an Infinitesimal chance that I may do some yard work. Which is better than being trapped in a Potential Well.
You know, this is a lot harder than Talk Like a Pirate Day. Maybe we could combine the two events into one big Talk Like a Pi-rate Day.
"Arrr, Matey! Ye will walk the plank 3.14 times!"

"Arrr, I am a lustful wench! But the chances of me smoking ye pole are vanishingly small!"

"Arrr, my desire for grog is canonical!"
Or maybe I should just go back to bed. Arrr?

Arrrr! Will ye lookit that vanishingly small pole?

Sorry, couldn't help it.

Nathan, I was wondering who would take advantage of that straight line.

Somehow I just knew it would be you.

Hee.

Assume: a spherical, frictionless chicken, in a vacuum.

Well, happy Pi Day to you, too. We don't celebrate much on Pi Day. We tend to celebrate more on E=MC2 day. But, whatever your religious preference.

Sadly there will be no pie for pi day today. Perhaps ice cream, though.

Arrr!

I had cake. Does that count? And a Happy Pi Day to you.

Funny, I love the caption!

Janiece Murphy said...

Hi Char! I want that T-Shirt. I wants it, precious!

Maybe the SmartBoy will get it for me one year for Mother's Day if he ends up pursuing physics as his career.

Arrr.

I've spent all day (and I do mean ALL DAY T.T) playing Mad Scientist on Facebook, which is a game just released last Wednesday, where you build zombies and robots. Right now I'm researching PHYSICS so that I can make a doomsday machine.

Does that count? :)

Janiece Murphy said...

MWT, of course it counts!

Arrr.

Huh, take the weekend off the intertubes and miss an important event such as this. You would a thunk my dr of physics professor brother would have informed me of such.

I baked cake, no pi. It is an extensively and thoroughly tested dark chocolate cake recipe. Research indicates the cake will be enjoyed by many here at the office later today.
