If I somehow failed to spam you with this: This is the coolest thing I've seen (and heard) in a while. That's a camera mounted atop the left solid rocket booster of Discovery starting roughly from takeoff until splashdown. Takeoff isn't too exciting. The real fun begins when it breaks off, you see a glimpse of the shuttle go by, and then it tumbles slowly down. You hear the sound pick up as it falls faster and the atmosphere becomes denser.

You see the parachutes deploy.

*sighs* I wanna have this ride SOOOOOOO badly =(

I think I'm going to start writing a space simulator. I want off this rock, so I damn well better get used to how spaceflight works. What better way?

Lots of work. Lots of KoL. Lots of driving back and forth. Not lots of sleep. I could do with more of that.

relsqui and I have taken to making our own burgers. They've got a long way to go before they challenge Jack's, but we're being lazy about it and not using hamburger buns and so on. They taste good anyway.

My officemate continues to rock. I continue to fail to get work done on account of interesting conversations. For example: If I asked you what Gauss was famous for, what would you say? Most of his discoveries were in proving things that were assumed (e.g. the fundamental theorem of algebra: that any polynomial has at least 1 root).

And stuff.
