Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Don't screw with engineers

Perhaps you have heard of a tenured professor (in one field) writing to the advisor of a Ph.D. candidate (in another field), due to some political comments in a blog (on a topic not part of either field)? Protein Wisdom has a rundown of the situation.

In the comments, one of the members of Obsidian Wings came up with the following response:

Dear Dr. Martin:

If you do not instruct Dr. Wallace Hettle (seriously: “Wallace Hettle”? Are you kidding me?) to cease and desist in his attempts to fuck with Purdue Ph.D candidate Paul Deignan, Purdue University will, with a minimum of effort, reduce your pathetic third-tier academic program to rapidly expanding plasma.

It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature, but it takes a damn fool to screw with engineers bearing a grudge.

Sincerely, Slart. E. Bartfast
