Debates over privacy and Google glass get really interesting depending on how much people care about their privacy and how much they believe they share without noticing it.

The extent of our labs has ended up with me snapchatting people dangerous equipment. 
Much fun!

its even better when the laser is meant to be "super dangerous" and then they forget to get us to sign the release to use it!

My latest short term interest: Food I found on-line that looks worse IRL.
(n.b. this is normally to me burning it, this one came out quite well! )
Spam Fried Rice.

about a 6/10, I need sweet chilli sauce, but the new walkers prawn crackers made up for it. 
I substituted peppers and chopped onions for the sweetcorn and carrots.

Why I've not been interacting on G+
Now this is true as well for facebook to an extent. Unfortunately my role on facebook is less of  "Katherine, the teenage physicist enthused over the world" And more "Kat, the head of games society and the girl with all the notes". 
Now I'm not saying that's bad, but although facebook for me is a necessity, G+ is my personal treat. 
Almost everyday I'm browsing, taking a look over interesting articles, commenting here and there. 
But its no-where near enough. 
So why have I dropped? Simple: The content on G+ is not new anymore. Looking at some of the posts, often I'll see 3 or 4 posts in a row that are all reposts. Often with little or no new comments. There's a few people who I circle who post their own content, and for that I love you guys, but as most of the "funny" articles are simply reposts from reddit or imgur I've seen 3 hours earlier. 
Or they're a photo with "cute" as the only comment to the post. 
Or something political. 
I refuse to uncircle people just because they believe one politician is better than my personal preference, or because they're celebrating their religion in a non-intrusive way. To be honest, the only reason I'd uncircle someone like that is if they started talking rubbish, claiming "theory" means "hypothesis" or that sciences should be seen as equivalent to arts (as in, the skills you gain are identical). 

So I'm sorry Google, I've not been giving you the care and attention you need. Once the holidays start, I'll do a circle cleanse and hopefully we'll see each other a lot more next year. 
Kat out xo

Like anything in life, If you want something to keep your interests up, then you have be active with it.
G+ is a two-way thing, if everyone just used it like a television with one channel that you hope will show all your favourite content, G+ as a whole will become boring.

Anyone who enjoys HHGTTG, and a good laugh, take a look at the FAQ's for the new game

Never heard of this game but loved the original series on TV.
The FAQ are just crazy. I may just have a go at playing this.

I just thought I'd share with you a debate I had with a humanity's subject over why there's a higher proportion of maths students with 1st's than the equivalent humanities. 
My main argument rested on this point: Maths is polarized. You either get a 1st or your fail in simple terms. 

I will accept both are difficult subjects. however, maths has a more difficult base level. 

My side of the argument follows: 
I am studying humanaites modules in physics, I would say I have a reasonable comparision. 
For the record, out of my 8 modules this year: one is lab, 2 are maths, 2 are essay/analysis based and the final 3 are a mix of analysis, knowlege and maths. 

In our labs, we have to analyse other experimentalists data. If we dont' understand something we can just bluff it/extrapolate from the other data. I did that in my last report and got a C. I then did another where I did a lot better and got a A. 

in maths, i didnt' understand the above function, \CC\\ etc. I attempted to extrapolate and couldn't, and hence sumbited my homework in partially completed as this was part 1 of a 6 part question. i got a U. i looked it up, did the homework this week on a topic I had the prerequisites for and got an A.

What I am saying, is exactly what the report above says: Maths is polarized. This means, in a binary sense, you can get 0 or 1. 
Humanties is less polarise. YOu can get 0, or 1 or 1/2.

Katherine Welsford Also i'm not alone, the other people doing the lab, some got A's, some got C's, some got U's. Same in maths, some got A's, some got C's , some got U's. 
it just happens that in maths, there were more A's and U's than C's. (considng the data I have, from the 12 or so people's homeworks i collected, I'd say the proportion of A/U to C's is about 11:1)

Joanna Chambers To be honest I don't care what modules you do, or how hard your course, or how amazing you are at maths. In general it might be wise to not make comments or claims about subjects which you have no creditable evidence to back up with. I'm done with this debate, enjoy your lab report.

Katherine Welsford when the proportion of people doing the humanites style subject I'd say the proportion of A/U's to C's is about 7:4


And humanities say they're good at debating.

I hate references. Also I hate people. Especially people who do subjects I'm shit at.

This store is very nice. The staff are helpful, but understandably they were more interested with selling wine to a middle aged couple than a few students. I have been reliably informed the stuff they sell is very nice, but they were not too worried about pressuring you to buy stuff.

An excellent pub. We sat in the back room which fits 15 comfortably and had a jolly good time. The portions are not huge but very tasty and the drinks are excellent. They're the break point for a Hidden City tour and we enjoyed the meal very much. I would defiantly go again, but its too pricey for something not a treat

A beautiful little bar, I believe its a members bar, but if you can get it, go. Its open plan floors make for a really open area and its excellent bartenders are almost out of this world.

The biggest airport in the country so expect busyness. Luckily everywhere accepts card. Bring good shoes and check your terminal before you fly! Have a nice trip!

The counter cafe is the epitome of a hipster club. Nestled behind an art gallery, the queue was out the door. Its also the start to a hidden city hunt. Overall, its a beautiful little place and the tea is nice, if a little pricey. You can see a excellent view of the Olympic stadium.

Really nice place, really good food. We always go there, its very traditional. The lady who served us was really nice and the staff always seem happy, and don't mind 8 students all coming in at once and taking up half the tables.

Not really what I'd call a superstore, but a reasonable sized shop. Toilets are clean, and they have a pharmacy. Discount counters are normally opposite the hot food counter, fish counter and by the world foods at the back. Good selection of world foods on that point. Overall, average, and not awful.
