No, I really am a lady engineer, but in some bizarre alternate reality only existing after the 1950s :wink:


There is one neophyte (intern) engineer girl (not to be confused with woman) I know who is as dumb as a post. She tells everybody she's an engineer. Constantly. She's very proud of it. She is also "afraid of big books". She forgets that I studied physics and I stump her regularly on very simple matters. It's fun, but only when the option of not having her around isn't available.

for some reason a whole lot of people from far north QLD stay in my house (which is a b&b, sort of) for sections of their sex-change procedures... there was an emma/gary, there was a fran/steven, and a few others.
it's intensely weird, mark my words.

Well, I put 1/10th for readability purposes. I should've simply said "102 grams" in the first place.

(Also, Google says otherwise - 9.7998. I guess it depends where on Earth you are.)

EDIT: I am very tempted to put four images of a fig fruit in my signature.

Well, that's a rather rare thing. Too bored with science, so starting work with children.


It is true though that working with children will never get boring (maybe a bit straineous, but that's all)

Also, I like your username.




btw. about p. 101: would that then be "xkcd Introthread: 101"?

It appears that Demonpoptart hasn't posted in here yet, but I just thought it was neat that his location field is "407 (flordizzle)" or something like that... which means the 407 area code is in Florida; the 408 area code is, err, "Hella Norcal", as I would say if I was a god damn tool. So the area code neighbors are on opposite edges of the country.

<-- DORK! :roll:

Currently 19 (almost 20), male, in Maryland, USA. Straight, but single. I check XKCD, as well as many other webcomics that I read almost daily (and probably hourly when I'm bored at work :-/). For personal interests, I play video games (fps & mmorpg), and itg most of the time (if you're not familiar with itg, it's alot like ddr (if you're not familiar with ddr... i'm sorry :-\ )) Anyway, that's all I can think of for now. Always interested in hanging with other xkcd'ers, so if anyone shows up in the baltimore/annapolis/washington area...
