Am I....C? No, B. Huh. I do not know any more.

What I saw was Gears being un-funny and kind of douche-y, with Teapot, TD and myself calling him on it, followed by Buddha saying stuff, with me calling him on that. Followed by the confusion over sarcasm. Which brings us to here. With yet more confusion.

Is that an alright summary?

No, but I haven't tried. Thank you. I've now lost the use of the rest of my evening.

I did, however, get a planet, with a moon, in a stable orbit around a binary star.

My camera has been missing for a week or so, and I kept thinking to myself "Fuck! Where did I put that fucking thing?" I accused a co-worker of pranking me and taking it, I accused my sister of borrowing it and not giving it back (both are feasible events by the way) and I generally kicked myself for not transferring the set of photos I took while urban trespassing a few weeks back with a buddy.

Tonight I walk into my favorite bar with a coworker, and the bar tender (the one I'm NOT that buddy buddy with) goes "Oh shit, you're finally back Zach, here, you left your camera last time you were here" and hands me the thing.

I feel like that's a sure sign I'm either a full blown, or nearly there alcoholic. BTW, 'you're finally back' means I've been gone for more then 5 days.

This is what I settled for. It's pretty good, although not perfect. The moon's orbit in particular seems complicated but stable.

Also, maybe we could create a thread for this elsewhere so we don't keep cluttering FRT with it? I'd be interested in seeing what others come up with, but I don't think is quite the place for it.

Izawwlgood: I think that depends on how much you're drinking when you're there. Also, congrats on finding the camera!

Time flies when you have deadlines to meet...

I have to read a 287 page book tonight and I've only read 23 pages so far. It's a good book, but I'm a slow reader and I keep getting distracted. If I read, say a page a minute (and I think that's fairly accurate) it's going to take me over 4 hours... yeah, I'm fucked.

Besides that book, I also have a couple chapters (40ish pages) to read about quantum physics. And a "study guide" thing on Dorian Gray that's mostly done, but still need work. So yeah, I got a long night ahead of me. Great way to start off the new semester too...

Given the existence of coffee cake, and of biscotti meant to be dunked in coffee, I'd say the general idea seems sound.

Also reporting back regarding maple syrup as a drink sweetener. Initial observations are positive for both coffee and tea, and indicate further research would likely be rewarding.
