The Goddamn Particle
One of the funniest science facts that I will never be able to tell most of my kids.
Wait? So, S.H.I.E.L.D. needs linguists? Why did I not get THAT brochure at the recent grad career fair?
I remember laughing and wondering whether anybody at Marvel even know what linguists do?!
Coming out of the closet…
I had to hide in my closet.
Because I wanted to test some recording device without actually leaving home go to the lab.
(And I figured the closet would be quiet and the closest thing I have to a sound-proof booth without having to trade my pj for real clothes.)
The look my cat gave me when I got out… Priceless.
“Oh my god! You do that, too!”
What people think Old English is:: Thou art indeed a fine lad, prithee yonder! Wherefore arest mine pantalones?
What it actually is:: Syððan ǽrest wearð feasceaft funden, hé þæs frófre gebád, wéox under wolcnum weorðmyndum þáh, oð þæt him ǽghwylc ymbsittendra ofer hron-ráde hýran scolde, gomban gyldan. Þæt wæs gód cyning!
