The book that really annoyed me lately is called something like "An introduction to Baysian reasoning in statistics" Nicole has been reading it so I just read the first chapter. I call Bull Sh*t on a lot of the ideas presented, I think one of the examples he gives is flat out wrong. My current view is that a significant portion of research is pure snake oil sales... but perhaps I am too jaded. I definitly accecpt that I could be wrong on all counts and am open to being disproven.
In other news! I got my tickets to Norway to visit my sister! That is going to be lots of fun.
Last night I started Milling the parts for my super awesome fantastic optics project! The only problem is that the 1/2 inch drill bit that I got is too long for my mini-mill. I have to go use the Physics dept. student machine shop, bog. Technically, I think I might have to take the safety class again... but I will try to just go use it anyway.
Anyway, life is going well despite my research project imploding. I've been applying to a few jobs while I work on a Hail Marry pass. Good times.
