This and That

In the absence of quality blogging time here's some unordered bits of information:

Hi Bee,

“Curiosity didn't kill the cat: Cat got accidentally sent over several hundred miles in a package.”

You missed the point:” Tomcat Janosch was just looking for a nice place to sleep…"I've sent your cat in the post," Manuela Lueginger sheepishly admitted. The day before in her cellar, Lueginger had carefully wrapped tape around a package, which contained a child seat that she had auctioned off on eBay.”

The key points are:” The cat's owner said she wasn't too surprised that Janosch hadn't OBJECTED to being boxed up and carried off. "This cat has always been a bit special," she said. "He likes to ride in cars, he likes boxes and he NEVER COMPLAINS." In addition, “she wasn't particularly worried: The one-year-old tomcat has a habit of DISAPPEARING for a day or two.”

“Where to next?”

I think Janosch deserve the tenure position at PI for the substantial contribution in the quantum and classical physics.

Regards, Dany.

P.S. In addition I suggest you to insist getting support from FQXi for investigation of Manuela Lueginger social unmotivated behavior (50%) and to cover Janosch travel expenses (50%).

Regards, Dany.

Hi Bee,

The announcement of your paper was certainly low key as being just the last point on a this and that posting. I have down loaded it plus given it a initial read to the extent that I can acknowledge that I don’t have much of a clue as to what it’s about other then it’s related to the dark matter question. I hope at some point you will have the time and inclination to write an “A Bi-Metric Theory with Exchange Symmetry for Dummies” version as a synopsis on the blog.

Hi Phil,

Yes, the paper is rather technical. I hope that at some point I will have the time to work out some examples that might be easier to explain. Best,

The SciFoo area of California is definitely not on fire. =) You'll have fun and good weather there.

You can see some Olive Riley videos here. Ah, oysters and beer, certainly brings back some childhood memories for me.
