Skull-crushing Boredom?

I really should be doing some proper work, but I thought I’d pass on a provocative post from a blog I recently discovered about vertebrate palaeontology, and how wonderful it is.
By the way (and this s sort-of relevant), I’m a failed viola player.

    That was good!

    How true. As I often say to Gees Minor and Minima, 25 years ago I couldn’t even spell ‘palaeontologist’ and now I are one.

    It’s great to completely skip doing stats and STILL boast that you’re a scientist, but let’s face it: molecular biologist have developed this trick ages ago…

  4. Bob O'Hara says:

    Pah, Cristian! Pah! Molecular biologists aren’t as clever as they think. They think they’re doing bioinformatics, but don’t realize what’s under the hood.

    Delightful. Thanks for the link!

    “I’m a failed viola player”
    Oxymoron.

    Don’t you mean tautology?

    “I’m a failed viola player”
    Me too!
    I’m also a failed oboe player, and an ever so slightly NOT-failed classical guitarist.

    “Don’t you mean tautology?”
    Yes, I probably do. I always mix those up. Whatever makes sense, coming from a violINist

    I think “viola player” might be an oxymoron. It was in my case.
