Conference Observations

Why do people coming into any session duck when they come into the room and have to cross in front of people, even if ducking has no effect on how much they block the view of said people?

I just got an Godfather offer that if our March grant doesn't get through we can get the work done in Germany for free... with a trip and "all you can carry schnitzel". Tempting, but if we can do this ourselves, all the better.

Lots of feedback on my student's talk today, mostly good. When you're floating an unusual idea you never know you what you're going to get.

I got to talk for a while with my science crush.

Middle America is a different breed of place, no matter where you come from (if it ain't here).

    Middle America is weird even if you're from there! That much corn makes a person mad.

    LOL! And you're so right about the ducking!Congrats on the crush convo...

    I've noticed the ducking thing too, and I suspect I've even done it myself... I think it's a way of acknowledging "yes, I'm late and I'm in your way, sorry, here's a token effort"
