    Got to work this morning to find there's no lab meeting today. [++]

    But that also means no free breakfast. [-------------]DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    you think that's bad, it was a sad day when our budget crossed the no-more-free-meeting-food line.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    Oh damn.

    The food is only free to me, because whoever gave lab meeting last time has to bring food (out of pocket- pretty lame), but I never have to give lab meeting 'cause I'm a tech.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    This idea is completely nuts, right? Drivers don't care about your stress level. If anything, I can see people driving around actively trying to stress cyclists out.

    "MindRider is a helmet that translates electroencephalogram (EEG) feedback into an embedded LED display. For the wearer, green lights indicate a focused, active mental state, while red lights indicate drowsiness, anxiety, and other states not conducive to operating a bike or vehicle. Flashing red lights indicate extreme anxiety (panic). As many people return to cycling as a primary means of transportation, MindRider can support safety by adding visibility and increased awareness to the cyclist/motorist interaction process. "

    The glassware dryer in our lab caught on fire on Friday. Doesn't look like it spread outside of the dryer. The entire floor still stinks pretty bad.

    Fancy:

    Welp, after several meetings (seriously) they think it might have been the PLASTIC in the GLASS dryer that caused the fire (no fucking shit!).

    Oh BU...

    That's as dumb as evacuating an entire building for 4 hours for 200mL of spilled decalin.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    What about evacuating an entire building for a couple hours for 150mL of spilled b-mercaptoethanol? That was a nice surprise beer break.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    BU needs to start having separate email lists. I'm staff at the Medical Campus, I don't need to know about every fire alarm and chemical spill that happens at Charles River or faculty regalia ordering deadlines.

    There was a massive chemical fire in 2 Design center when i was working in 1 Design Center and they didn't evacuate anyone from 1 because the alarm system wasn't working. I didn't even know anything happened until i came out of the building and saw like 25 fire trucks.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    I signed my withdrawal papers from BU three years ago next week and I still get alerts about stupid shit like this all the time. I got an email in all caps from Student Health about the flu epidemic last week. The subject line was "IMPORTANT READ IMMEDIATELY"Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Just had two PhD's come ask me for help with the camera connected to the microscope in one of our cell culture rooms (which I manage). Computer wasn't seeing the camera, and I was hoping it wasn't something that required actual computer skills to fix.

    It wasn't.

    The camera had not been turned on.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    There's a glass door in my building clearly marked "push" on one side and "pull" on another. If you sit and watch, you'll see PhD brains at work all day smashing into a closed door.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    I can beat this! I am technically employed by an institute with a campus in Maryland, and am only at Hahvahd as a "unpaid subcontractor" or something, and the other night, at 12:19am, I got an emergency text informing me that the MD campus would be opening late the following day.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    My PhDbrains mostly just throw "if you smell it, it's already too late" chemicals into regular trashcans and leave empty boxes around instead of asking for a restock.i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
