Migrated to wordpress
Moved my blog to wordpress: http://zaphos.wordpress.com/

It was the only way to save the old posts which had broken images ever since my cmu web space went away. Also, think there are less ads for non-logged-in users there. See you there :)

APPARENTLY if you accidentally freeze a can of sprite due to uneven cooling in the back of the fridge, then (1) it expands into this cool difficult-to-use shape! and (2) all the water content freezes before the syrup content so if you try to drink it you basically get CARBONATED SYRUP at first and then slowly, as it melts, water.

Thank you for your attention to SCIENCE FACT TIME! Remember kids, if you pay attention then ALL TIME IS SCIENCE FACT TIME. Never sleep, because there will be a test on all of it!

Hey, what happened to the squirrel?
"Hey, what happened to the squirrel?"
"There was a squirrel on the board earlier, and now there's a bird ... what happened to the squirrel? Did the bird eat it?"

2011 in arbitrary blurry camera phone pictures


When I was in Ottawa this summer, some Canadian money was looking for a date.

I tried to get a better picture, but then my phone freaked out at me for photographing money (apparently it can tell!)

The rooms were very inexpensive ...

It's hard to tell from the picture, but this is my advisor pulling out the ballroom dance moves with the conference organizer while everyone else is just standing around or doing the "awkwardly bounce in place" dance.

Some of the native-canadian art was pretty neat.


Another of my cousins got married this year! This is a picture of the pretty spot in Arizona where it happened.


La Val's Pizza receipt pulls no punches in mocking my lack of celebrity.

As far as I know this is the one crosswalk in Berkeley with two walk buttons -- a normal one, and one way near the ground. For tiny people?
