This is awesome. US Strategic Command used the example of a zombie outbreak as a teaching tool and put their best minds in training onto the problem. This is the outcome.

Hey Universe, screw you man. You can try and upset me by having moths eat my favourite cardigan, but I will just wear it anyway. I have become more fabulous than you can possibly imagine.

(Tonight I plan on curling up with the stash to find something that actually matches. For the meantime, a $4 trip to lincraft will suffice.)

Bookmarking this for me, because I want to be the sort of person who wears make up occasionally, and I want it to be like this.

Woohoo! New princess diaries books, one of them written for adults!

(The other one, for younger readers, seems like it will make a good birthday gift in a few months.)

Morning moments:
Nick: Huh, dragon-proof bras. Fascinating.

Alex: It's infinity o'clock! Time to play!

(Yes, I fixed Nick's pronunciation of 'bars', just because I was a little confused.)

There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who didn't except this to be in base 3.

It's impossible to spoil a joke by being too literal!

Doctor Catherine to you.
Introduction
Catherine Braiding is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of New South Wales, working on the Mopra Southern Galactic Plane CO Survey, which aims to map the distribution and dynamics of carbon monoxide in our galaxy. Together with maps of neutral carbon from Nanten2, and C+ from the HEAT telescope in Antarctica, these data will allow us to understand how molecular clouds form. 

Catherine has also modelled the influence of magnetic fields (in particular, the Hall effect) on the gravitational collapse of molecular cloud cores into protostars, as well as the interactions that occur between supernova remnants and molecular clouds, and was a member of the team involved in the experiment that created Captain Atom.
