The Non Sequitor Thread

Recommended Posts

Re: The Non Sequitor Thread

 

Found in an old email while performing a long-overdue inspection and clean-out of my Sent Items, railing against conflicts of handling different platforms and their character sets in emails:

 

Goddamned platform-dependent character set variations.

 

May the tapeworms of a billion swine devour the bastard who concocted MIME, and all his offspring, and relations to the seventh degree, and may he watch them all writhe in agony before he himself is ruthlessly consumed from the inside out.

Of course your measurements suck. You are using antiquated equipment and you have no experience using that antiquated equipment. That is not the point. How bad are they? What are the uncertainties? Do your results make sense given how well you can do with your sucky technique? That is the point. Show your uncertainties -- after you have figured out what those are -- and accept those limitations, and then ask, does the physics work within my ability to test it?

On what planet did you learn that you didn't have to report your actual measurements in your lab write-up? We cling to a perhaps parochial convention about that here.
