Have you heard of a little something called... AIDS!!?!

Those are symptoms.

Awesome man. I know the feeling, though not to nearly the same extreme.

My wife and the kids have been at the finger lakes since last Saturday. They are staying at a lake house with her family (parents, 2 of her siblings). I went up on Monday but haven't seen them since, other than FaceTime + phone calls.

I'm glad they're back tomorrow because I've been starting to get very bored and lonely. Can't wait.

So I was interoduced to Michio Kaku when I was an avid listener of the Art Bell radio show. I would listen closely and love how he broke down topics so an average joe could understand most of it. (at least I could). I was able to grasp the overall gist of the discussions. I recently finished Hyperspace. I have Visions still to read (probably in the winter months). Not being in that discipline, I grasped about 75-80% of the book, but loved reading it. I absolutely love theoretical physics (of what I can understand).

I hope we make it to a type 1 civilization some day

Terry Pegula 20 years in the future "If I needed more money I'd go harvest the nuclear energy of a star, just ask Lindy and Darcy they've known me long enough now." Of course with Lindy and Darcy still here in 20 years we'd still have to be cupless AMIRITE GUYS!?

Kaku is probably the best at explaining complex Physics since Richard Feynman and Carl Sagan passed. Feynman did a series of lectures for the BBC that were so humorous and enlightening that after seeing them I decided I was going to teach physics some day. If you haven't seen them they are worth a watch. You can find them on the Ted talks website (sorry on my phone and don't have the link).

Understanding 75-80% of a book on theoretical physics is pretty good absorption. I've taken 3 years of physics classes and I'm pretty happy when I understand that much of a book on the first read.

Kaku's old stuff is pretty good, but from what I understand, lots of physicists get pretty aggravated by him nowadays. He used to be a lot more grounded and involved in the field, but with all the media and events he does now, a lot of people feel he's almost divorced himself from the physics community completely--in other words, he's gone from being a theoretical physicist and a futurist to a futurist with a theoretical physics background.

He's still a great ambassador for the field to the average layperson (though I'm a bigger fan of NDT myself). It's always fun to listen to him talk, and like I said, some of his older stuff is still quite good.

when start getting paid to do something it stops being a hobby an becomes a job. He's definitely more entertainer than physicist these days, but anyone that can still stimulate wonder in the average reality TV soaked American brain is a valuable member of the scientific community. If content is what you are looking for pick up hyperspace and then read his citations. The books he used to compile that are post-graduate texts and papers. Most of it makes my head spin. Also anyone interested in theoretical physics should rad Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions. May have been written in the 1880s but it's about as insightful into present day multi-dimensional physics as anything out there.

The pre-diagnosis on the abdominal pain is diverticulitis. Although, I'm not so sure.

Had a great day at Darien Lake yesterday with the family.

This was playing on the radio as we pulled into dinner. I had a hard time keeping it together. I will be listening to this alot over the next while.

INCOMING HOCKEY!

So yesterday, my hockey team had it's first game of the playoffs.

In the 2nd period, I was against the boards, behind our net, with one of the other teams guys trying to get the puck out. I ended up falling, so I shoved the puck along the boards with my hand.

Guy looks at the ref and screams "HEY! He touched the puck with his hand!", in a rather pissed off tone. Ref just looked back and said "Well yeah, you can do that in your own zone" (or something similar) in a pretty sarcastic/annoyed tone. I liked those refs Seriously though, first time in a while we've had refs that called a great game and were consistent.

Refs always love to get yelled at by people that have the rules wrong.



I hope I don't have any moments like that as the first year head coach of my son's team this season.

The refs in my inline league aren't too bad. They tend to err on the side of not calling anything, which works to my disadvantage as a smaller player since I can't just blow through hooks and holds.

I don't care too much one way or another, as long as it's relatively fair and no one is a jerk. I play to have fun, not to win a rec. league stanley cup or whatever.

You're going to have a ****ing blast coaching. It is one of te better things I've taken up since graduating college, which parlayed itself into a head job at a good catholic school in NJ
