"David A. Weitz, a physics professor at Harvard, joked, "There are more theories of the glass transition than there are theorists who propose them.""
It's back! Maybe the best Web comic going.
What am I going to use for procrastination now?
"[P]hysicists created two entangled laser beams such that the direction of travel of the beams is correlated."
"MacGowan hit upon an idea as simple as it was audacious -- to apply punk's DIY, anyone-can-do-it aesthetic to Anglo-Irish folksong, a musical form that valued scholarship and tradition."
"But linear algebra was the only thing that ever made me feel like a man."
"People come up and go, 'Is it safe?' " Mr. Martin said. "Safety is a relative thing. We think we have done a lot to make this by far the safest jetpack ever built."
Thank you very much for plugging my webcomic! Means a great deal to me. Glad you enjoy it.
Does it strike you that EA Games (who developed the 'legitimate' version of Scrabble for Facebook) dropped the ball?
I wonder how much they spent writing, testing, and debugging the one they had. I bet it was more than it would have cost them simply to buy Scrabulous itself and adapt it. Certainly cost more in time.
If they'd just bought Scrabulous and tweaked it a bit to make it legitimate (rename it, add some branding, whatever), everyone might have won - users, EA, the Scrabulous developers, Hasbro.
As it is, only the lawyers are happy. They get paid, no matter how much goodwill is lost to their clients.
Maybe buying Scrabulous wasn't possible; maybe they tried - I have no idea. Still...
Thanks, Chad. I've been lamenting the demise of Medium-Large for months now, so I hadn't been checking. One of my favorites: "Things That Confuse Sean Hannity."
