Also, possibly an urban legend, toilets swirl the other way when flushed, but still negative, or positive, in our terms, in the Z axis, thank god. Good old G.

Finally, Aussie is filled with giant blond surfer babes with one arm, the other arm long ago digested by a shark. And they don't even mind. Wait before you try to shake hands.

Hope this helps.

So why not come back(assuming you're from here)?

The Planck telescope will teach us a lot about the cosmic background radiation soon, I think within a year.

Lastly, it's not all smarts. I had to spend at least half the Saturday nights of my 20s studying. If you want to do research you need to focus.
I'm a member of the new Protect the Higgs Boson Particle society. How dare you uncover this innocent little particle? Perhaps it just wants to be left alone? Like the Koala Bear.

But no. Did you ever think of that? We **** our forests, destroy the earth and now we uncover and study tiny 'weightless' helpless particles with 'no mass' (huh, right, give a Higgs Boson six Molson, and it will have mass allright) that spin both ways or something. We should leave them alone. Like the turtles. That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.

Wife, child, work. Unless you're in Boronto or Van, no work for architects. Yes I will come back, just not yet. Man I miss it. Have a beer for BSL at the next game at Bell, whenever that is. I'll send you the 10 bucks.

Takes a courageous individual to make particle physics jokes. You start of with an audience that is probably less than 1% of the population...

Was that something you gunned for from age 12, or did you just kind of end up there? How the **** did you do that? Is there a degree or something I can take? I'm calling McGill right now. Awesome.

I also do freelance web development on the side for extra cash. Didn't go to school for that... was self taught. As for education, only High School.

I'm thinking of taking a vacational course but not sure what I'm interested in... but that'll come later. I'll think some more about that as soon as I have my car loan paid off.
Same again,

Know thyself. Good for you. I also hate too much stress. Life is to be lived and enjoyed.

Do you do trainspotting?

Either way, you really need to start using the multi quote feature.

I think you should do something that might stimulate your mind more. It's never too late to learn something new. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks.

Graphic designer here, hoping to teach/freelance for a living within 2 years.

If we have a season and I got time on my hands, I'm gonna give the avatar campaign a shot again this year.

You should hook up with the guy in the earlier post that sells drugs, and me, the guy who buys them.
