Anyway, in my more cynical moments, I'm amazed at how much this whole physics world is like that. With whom do I align? How do I possibly work with people for whom I have no respect? I've learned not to hold grudges...I don't let certain people know how upset I am that they screwed me because there's no point. I see my relationships basically as just how do I get what I want from them without giving up too much.
It sounds pretty bad, but remember that I pretty much suck at these games, so I'm sure I'm pretty tame compared to those who find this stuff obvious.
While I'm on the topic let me just list the best shows on TV (go Season Pass them now):
- Modern Marvels
- Scientific American Frontiers (when it's actually on)
- Nova (not all of them)
- Colbert Report
- Pardon the Interruption (when it's not baseball or football seasons)
- Daily Show
- Extreme Engineering
- How It's Made (just stumbled on this recently)
Thinking about TV, the other day they had the Simpsons on in which Lisa becomes a vegetarian, causing a big rift with her father Homer. This one has the funniest Simpson's line ever:
The whole family is at the table, Homer is trying not to talk to Lisa because she sent his grand, roasted pig down a hill during his big BBQ, everyone starts fighting, and Homer yells at Bart to go to his room, and Lisa yells "Why don't you just eat him!".
