Congrats!

Beef is an excellent name, you know. Or Beefette.

I have a friend that is going to name her daughter Rilynn. Please for the love of everything that is good and holy, do not name her that. Or anything that bad.

This is a video of what NOT to name your kid:

Unless you there was an edit, I'm not seeing that quote. There are some interesting names on that list.

For Sabremetric people, is this somewhat of the hockey equivalent to WAR?

2. To exclude by or as if by decree from membership or participation in a group.

Would be excluding him from the family

Maybe I used the wrong term. Don't care. Watching the ps4 conference

Anyone?

If astronomy is your thing, check out Arizona State man. Do it. Their acceptance rates are pretty high for undergrads (like 88%!!!) and they're half of what Nova cost even for an out of state student. After 6 months the tuition wouldd drop to 10g's a year. They do A LOT of astromy stuff and you could possibly study under Lawrence Krauss if you got into the graduate program there. I think U. of Hawaii has a program that's decent also, might be worth looking into. I know they have a pretty sick observatory/telescope at the top of the mountain out there at least, so I'd be surprised if that wasn't attached to some school.


There is an effort by the physics society at my school to get our observatory reopened to the public, as well as have some upgrades and repairs put in. We want to convince Neil DeGrasse Tyson to come on down for an afternoon from Manhattan and do a little speaking thing, though I'm sure he charges a fee. Maybe he'll lower it for an event relavent to astronomy that is open to the public and at a college. We'll see.
I knew AZ-State was a very easy school to get into for undergrad in astronomy, but I believe my friend that initially wanted to attend Villanova is already in at AZ-State... Plus I'm grad-school-bound, albeit I'm nowhere near competitive for UPenn (and I lacked the research experience to get into AZ-State) at this time.

Stay away from ASU. Out of state tuition is terrible, the state is full of crazy people, and Tempe campus is evil.

Just saying

Left my cell phone on the counter of the bagel shop I frequent for lunch. Went back and they were closed. They called my wife and found out where I worked and dropped it off. Glad there are some good people still left out there!
