I find myself lacking words to say anything else, so I'll just say "good luck!"
It might not be Tuesday today, but still, here's an old (yet still good) physics problem for you to take a crack at:
Just noticed that UID=1000000 has finally been registered. Lucky bastard.
I discovered an interesting (and funny) site today, called I Used To Believe. It's a collection of ideas that people thought were true when they were children. Reading the things other people used to believe reminded me of some of my beliefs. For instance, I used to believe:

Some of you are probably familiar with Jared Diamond's thesis of the human destruction of the ecosystem on Easter Island. According to Diamond, "In just a few centuries, the people of Easter Island wiped out their forest, drove their plants and animals to extinction, and saw their complex society spiral into chaos and cannibalism." But now, in American Scientist, Terry L. Hunt offers
When I read Sol's journal, I immediately had this great idea for a story. It was supposed to be about this miracle maker who never makes any miracles. He has all the power in the world, yet he abstains from using it. If he only wanted to, he could make the whole world a better place at the blink of an eye -- yet he doesn't use these powers he has and lives an ordinary life in an ordinary house.

Sorry for not posting anything in weeks. I've either been feeling too tired or have just had too much things to do.
Daniel Charms researchers have often pointed out that there's no reliable information about his exact date of birth. Some claim that it's because of the war (either because noone had time to keep birth records at that time, or those records were lost); others point out that the calendar was changed so many times back then that it inevitably caused mixups and a lot of confusion. Lately, however, some new evidence has emerged, pointing towards the possibility that Daniel Charms was not even a r
