Refresh Types

The hardest refresh requires both a Mac keyboard and a Windows keyboard as a security measure, like how missile launch systems require two keys to be turned at once.

Once Per Day

I'm not totally locked into my routine—twice a year, I take a break to change the batteries in my smoke detectors.

Magnetohydrodyanmics combines the intuitive nature of Maxwell's equations with the easy solvability of the Navier-Stokes equations. It's so straightforward physicists add "relativistic" or "quantum" just to keep it from getting boring.

Air Force Museum

I had fun visiting the museum at Dover Air Force Base, unless they don't have a museum, in which case I've never been to Delaware in my life.

In the 90s, our variety radio station used the tagline "the best music of the 70s, 80s, and 90s." After 2000, they switched to "the best music of the 80s, 90s, and today." I figured they'd change again in 2010, but it's 2017 and they're still saying "80s, 90s, and today." I hope radio survives long enough for us to find out how they deal with the 2020s.

Dubious Study

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 22:00
Sounds fine. I looked up the Academy, and it says on their MySpace page that their journal is peer-viewed and downloaded biannually.

Voting Systems

Tue, 05/30/2017 - 22:00
Kenneth Arrow hated me because the ordering of my preferences changes based on which voting systems have what level of support. But it tells me a lot about the people I'm going to be voting with!

Opening Crawl

Using a classic Timothy Zahn EU/Legends novel is bad enough, but at least the style and setting aren't too far off. If you really want to mess with people, try using Splinter of the Mind's Eye.

Anti-Drone Eagles

Thu, 05/25/2017 - 22:00
It's cool, it's totally ethical--they're all programmed to hunt whichever bird of prey is most numerous at the moment, so they leave the endangered ones alone until near the end.

Gonna feel even dumber when I realize that all this time he's been talking into a bluetooth thingy and we're not actually friends.

Machine Learning

Tue, 05/16/2017 - 22:00
The pile gets soaked with data and starts to get mushy over time, so it's technically recurrent.

Rental Car

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 22:00
Technically, both cars are haunted, but the murder ghosts can't stand listening to the broken GPS for more than a few minutes.

I take the view that "open-faced sandwiches" are not sandwiches, but all other physical objects are.
