Before I get into this, I should warn that while every link I present is safe for BAUT and work, some (several) strips on xkcd.com use strong language. Be aware if you decide to wander.

I've been going through XKCD this weekend. I have to say up front that Randall Munroe has the soul of a poet. That said, ladies, I'd like you to take notes. The woman who can learn do this sort of thing instinctively will win me, such as I am... heart, soul, and mind... forever.

By definition, you can't learn to do something instinctively. You can, however, learn do do something reflexively.

Semantics, schemantics. ;) Reflexively then.

And it is an oblate sphereoid, no matter what any economist tells you.

Lets just hope that No 3 (http://www.xkcd.com/305/) is no true for the BAUT.

I only started reading xkcd a few weeks ago, and I'm already hooked.

I thought BAUT is a good place to share pictures of heavenly bodies (http://www.bautforum.com/astrophotography/).

It's been raining all day. I need a girlfriend. Lucky for my students I don't have one right now, though, because I've got a lot of stuff to do.
