And I thought I was cool when I learned to ride a bike without using my hands as a kid.

That is pretty amazing.  Fixed gear bikes with a 1 to 1 gear ratio.  Pretty amazing the one girl can stand on the other's shoulders while she's going backwards pulling a wheelie...

Almost makes the stuff I used to do on a big wheel with a handbrake look easy.  ;D

Tom, you have waaaay to much time on your hands.  Aren't you supposed to be working on your PhD or summut?

I manage the email list for the Cascade Jugglers, they send this kind of stuff out all of the time.

But I have a little time on my hands while I wait for Franklin to run some of my latest experiments.  And I'm procrastinating a bit on dissertation writing. :)

It's fast. ;D

But that's not even the latest one, Hopper2 is a lot faster.  It's not worth the work to modify my stuff to run there though, Franklin is fast enough.  But if I start a new project I'll be all over that. :)

Working on some UIC periodic reports and some NPDES permit applications today, me.  zzzzzzzzzzzz

Not as much fun as the days when I get to play outside measuring DO, salinity and enterococcus densities in the Kapoho tide pools, but hey, it pays da bills.

I'm personally very glad that they are protecting me from dookey (and other nasties).  Sorry you have to do the reports though. :)
