Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Archives for May, 2006

Yes, I laughed because I am starring in this same movie right now, although I have enacted a few minor costume alterations, of course.

Draw a Pig Personality Test

This is an online personality test, based on your drawing of a pig.
