Could there be a better fortune for a theoretical physicist?

I am really annoyed with modern society's infatuation with video; frequently it is much faster, more effective, and pleasant to receive information (gasp) in writing.

What precipitated this comment was an email invitation to watch "Cox video bill". I'm surprised this isn't obvious: I don't want to receive my bills as a video; I don't want to watch a video about my billing; I cannot actually imagine a person that would. Just give me a well-written document! It is less effort on both our parts.

Haha.  They have been sending that to us every month.  I've never watched it.

A deep problem in Indian society is that secularism is interpreted as treating all religions (mostly Hinduism, Christianity and Islam) equally. Atheists (and rationalists) are the lepers of Indian society, best avoided and never considered part of any discussion. It is made worse by the fact that India does not have a uniform civil code -- there is one for Hindus, one for Christians and so on.

I've been wanting to read this paper, since I first found out about its existence sometime last year. Finally found it! (Thanks to http://physicsandphysicists.blogspot.com/2014/01/a-physicist-examines-kennedy.html.) I won't spoil the fun, except to say that it was worth the read.

It's always refreshing to see that some people are doing real science...

"German media say the US has been tapping the chancellor's phone since 2002, and Mr Obama was told in 2010.
The row has led to the worst diplomatic crisis between the two countries in living memory."

Umm... wasn't there some kind of altercation sometime around the 1940s, which some people still remember. I thought there was something...

Everybody knows that living memories don't make it past 65 years of age.

Similar results were mentioned in "Blink". (I am not really endorsing the book, since I feel it over-reaches and is not very coherent even if it is filled with interesting anecdotes/studies.) In any case, this reconfirms my general preference for recorded music over live performances. I'll still be surprised if anyone else agrees with that sentiment.

A (slightly hyperbolic) NY Times article on a topic I have been involved in this past year!
