Already been spoiled for me. I actively tried to avoid it, but oh well.

Right, who ordered up a Fimbulwinter?  Ice storm, at the end of March? Really?  Ugh
.

Edit: Apparently Mother Nature is being a bit senile today.  The weather has been rain, ice, rain, snow, and now rain again.  If the temperature drops, the commute tomorrow will be made of pure, unadulterated suck.

It was snowing, raining AND hailing all at the same time  yesterday.

Go home, spring, you're drunk.

Sticker shock: when last I bought a bottle of The Macallan 25 it was about $450 from the VA ABC store. I just checked their price list. It's now $1100 a bottle. Oy gevalt.

I may be able to get it for cheaper; seen prices around $850 online. And I recently met someone who supposedly works for a liquor distributor… if I can just recall who's husband it was

Seems like I've been running around in circles all day. Must be a sine of the times.

Great Caesar's Ghost! I can't wait for tomorrow.

I could say something about Zombieland not being a documentary, but, really, no joke is necessary.

Cruel — yet amusing — things to do to your children #23: Give them a middle name of 'The'.  Obviously, this works best if your surname is a noun or adjective, such as 'Smith' or 'King' or 'Johnson'.

#Mathematics query:

I'm looking for families of functions with specific properties: A horizontal asymptote at positive infinity and a first derivative that is always positive. So far I've found three families:

The Sigmoid functions — arctan, erf, &c. Two asymptotes, continuous.
Polynomials of the form x^-(2n+1). Two asymptotes, singularity at x=0.
Exponential functions of the form -a^-x. One asymptote, continuous.

If anyone can think of additional families, I'd appreciate it.

Was reminded of this quote by a conversation involving driving to Chernobyl and serving on a nuclear aircraft carrier.

Repo Man (1984)

J. Frank Parnell: Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too. When they canceled the project it almost did me in. One day my mind was full to bursting. The next day - nothing. Swept away. But I'll show them. I had a lobotomy in the end.

Otto: Lobotomy? Isn't that for loonies?

Parnell: Not at all. Friend of mine had one. Designer of the neutron bomb. You ever hear of the neutron bomb? Destroys people - leaves buildings standing. Fits in a suitcase. It's so small, no one knows it's there until - BLAMMO. Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead. So immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad. That's what happened to this friend of mine. So he had a lobotomy. Now he's well again.
