I still can't believe I forgot about the mutation thing on Chromaggus.
Any luck on Ony btw?
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

And another four levels added to my second shammy. getting there :)
A lot of "wow, you're going fast" remarks coming my way again aswell, which I think is strange, because I do nothing out of the ordinary while levelling.
2 heirlooms, regular questing (no guide, just memory) preferably in a zone I haven't been in a while and skilling my herbalism and alchemy as I go. :S

Original video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... Mio1UsgraU
I think some other subforum than /r/wow on reddit cought up on it, i think theres even yet another repost of the vid.

It was Break who picked it up and reposted it. (http://www.break.com/index/nerd-dating-101-2318479)

Also, he didnt have much success anyway, and cant say its a very viable tactic to pick up girls with ^^

I blew up my raid roster tonight.

If I'm going to raid lead until Mists I'm sure as hell not going to bring people that can't handle paying attention for 2 hours anymore!

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.

Physical Review B - it's where the group I post-doc'd submitted most of our work (material structure/thermodynamics/kinetics subtopic). Took me a bit longer to get this second one in than the first I did with the group though (going off to a job does that :P)

Sure does. I still have a PRL that needs to be written, the bulk of the work having been done over a year ago. Though a good chunk of it is in the PRA from March.

the short format of PRLs and the rapid communications make em tough, from what I've heard, never wrote one myself. Though as I understand getting one accepted looks really good on a CV because it usually means you've done something big and exciting :D

And yeah, I think the time-scale for getting some of these things in the pipe and finished can really get crazy. Physics journals are better than the engineering ones I published in during grad school though - one had a turnaround time of like 6 months to a year. Though getting an email from a grad student asking about the specifics of a derivation I did about 5-6 years ago (published it about then too), on a topic I haven't worked with in about 4 years, was... interesting (read: I found the paper then scratched my head for like an hour trying to remember where I came up with something :P)

It really depends on the journal, and in many cases, the reviewers. Phys Rev is usually pretty fast. I've had other papers waiting for a month or two on a reviewer.

I still get e-mails regarding my Science paper, but usually only one a year or so. Luckily I still feel pretty competent about that material, even 6 years later. I can only hope that it remains that way after 6 years of inactivity on the subject, though.

Oooo... Science. I haven't done anything nearly cool enough to end up there.
