March 2008

Sorry to those few who actually look at this thing, but I have spent the last week completely redoing 6 months of research … I promise to put more pictures up soon … as soon as the cluster stops crashing (2nd time this week)

I has hard day …


So it would seem, Dortmund is quite the busy place on Saturday. That’s the day of the market.




Welcome to ISAS

main ISAS


Ok, I wanted to see if anybody actually read’s or pays attention to this shit. So here we go…

What would a scientist do without technology? But, when you’re in another country thing’s don’t look like you’d expect … what am I supposed to do about it? So I’m going to give you something and ask what it does. Easy, right? All you gotta do is write a comment telling me what you think these devices do. If you get it right … you get a metaphorical cookie of my choosing.


Ok, so I forgot my camera, so I’ll be brief (taste of pictures to come?). A nice group of Ph.D students here (2 American’s, 1 from Hongkong … all got their Master’s from schools in England) walked me around town and showed me what’s up. It’s a little town with a large market on … ok I forgot when, but I’ll figure it out. Oh ya, we went to a mexican food restaurant (I don’t know why) but it was really good. A lot better than in Charlottesville.

Things to know when traveling through Germany: 1) Beer is delicious; 2) Public Transportation strikes happen, but they’re nice enough to tell you ahead of time; 3) food is amazing; 4) not everyone speaks English; 5) everything closes at 8pm every night despite the fact that the law was changed recently; 6) everything is closed on Sunday.

Also, an interesting guy walking through town with a bike and 1 flat tire told me “das Polizie … no gute.” I have no idea why.

Ok going to sports bar now … later

If you have every wondered where AusFahrt come’s from, here ya go.

It’s a bit hazy, but it’s there
