Grounded Switches
Vertigo Chuck

Snow days are fantastic things that happen a lot when there are big El Ninos happening around Peru. Just in case you didn't know, an El Nino is a current thing around the coast of Peru that changes the dynamics of the equatorial current in the Pacific and the upwelling of the deep ocean water on the coast of Peru. That's pretty much all I know about it. It causes havoc on the fishing trade in Pacific South America because of the lack of nutrient rich water. It also makes our weather a lot warmer here because there is just that much more energy on the surface of the ocean to give to developing storms that travel from west to east. NASA just launched a new climate satellite, which is quite cool,

Have Tuba, Will Travel
Vertigo Chuck

I didn't think I could get addictedd to caffeine, but I guess so. I am also addicted to the spelling of the word "caffeine." Humorous. Not the bone though. Or the funny bone, which is just a collection of nerve endings anyways. This is going to be one of those blog posts. I can't really carry a coherent thought right now for more than a few seconds, so the topic is going to bounce around. Not from eating too much Starburst, but by being a little slee-deprived and a little caffeinated sugar water. It has nothing to do with the open bag of Starburst on my desk. Did you know that they have new and interesting flavors? This "superfruit" bag tastes pretty yummy. I went for it at a whim

We Meet Again My Old Friend
Vertigo Chuck

It has been forever since I have played the tuba. About 6 years now. Luckily I picked it up again like a boss. I don't have all of the marching band songs memorized like I used to, but that will change again with time. I have one to practice now. The problem is that the contraption is a giant heat sink. If I'm going to be playing it in the cold, I woul want a plastic mouthpiece. Now the real question becomes if I should 3D print my mouthpiece or not. Thoughts? I think it would be cool, and there are 3D models online to do it with, and I do have access to a printer that can imbue my mouthpiece with carbon fiber, but I just don't know. I still have time enough to buy one. The decisions we need

The Annals of History
Vertigo Chuck

I think it is a lot easier to not mess up on writing the new year in the date when you teach school. Writing emails and making everything so day worthy just grounds you where you are. Remember 3 years and a few weeks ago, a few of ust thought that the world would end? Silly Mayan calendar. What if their prediction was correct though? What if we were just off in our math translation a little bit? Could be any day then really. Might as well live like it won't ever end. Well, unless you are planning to live for a few more years than the rest of us when the sun expands to fill the inner system. It might be a bit warm then. Have to look farther out than Mars for a place to stay. I read some pretty

Something about Auld Lang Syne
Vertigo Chuck

10 minutes is a very long time. I didn't notice that until this morning. 10 minutes is a very long time, but days go by so fast. There are 144 chunks of 10 minutes in a day. That's it. It seems like a small number, but the math checks out. That means every 14 minutes 24 seconds is 1% of your day. If you don't sleep at all. If you do like to get in your standard 8 hours, then 1% of your awake time is 9 minutes 36 seconds. About 10 minutes. A lot can happen in 10 minutes. With an optimistically long life, you will have experienced about 4.2 million of these chunks of time that can last forever. It all adds up though. All of these little chunks of infinity add up. A couple hours ago it felt like

Break In Case of Emergency
Vertigo Chuck

It was Iowa game night last night. They beat Michigan State. I'm not sure how I am supposed to feel about that. My allegiances are to the Pearl, but I'm taking classes through MSU. I guess I'll always root for a tie? Is that the right "root?" I lost my train of thought just now. It got derailed for... There it goes again. I've been playing too much Mini Metro. That is a good game. You start out with stations and need to get people to other stations. You have a limited number of trains with limited capacity, and a limited number of tunnels and bridges. Optimization at its best. Especially when your circle station out in the boonies turns into a star and now everyone wants the light blue train.

Overnight Forecast
Vertigo Chuck

I will tell you now that I accept bribes. There is no guarantee that it will actually help your score, but I do accept gifts and charitable donations. Last night I received a note for 10 Yuan. The Chairman staring at me with that weird smile-but-not-smile. You know what I mean. They captured exactly the right mood to say "this is money." I think sometimes that Andrew Jackson could take a little note from him. I mean seriously, the guy on the 20 is just strange looking. If you look at the 5 though, you see Honest Abe. The thing about this look on Abe's face is that he knows that you did something wrong. The kind of apathetic disappointment that makes you glad that he is looking away on the

A Slight Smokey Flavor
Vertigo Chuck

I went off and purchased a new laptop for quiz after talking last week about my XP laptop not updating the way it should. Thing is that I didn't install MS Office of any kind on it (maybe yet?) so I needed to use Google Docs as a scoresheet. Whipped something together in the brief time I had with the laptop before quiz, and I think it worked. We will see how it works out. Part of me regrets buying something that... less powerful, but I think it will work out just fine. I just need to get used to the new iTunes and the huge fonts. I need a way of shrinking the font size down so that I can have the entire playlist up like I used to so I don't mistakingly play question 3 twice like I did last

Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?
Vertigo Chuck

So I finally got one of the harder ones. I'm working on grad school right now and these physics problems are really kicking my butt. Semester is ending in a couple of weeks, and I want to get it done before Star Wars. We will see how it goes. If anyone knows anything about recursive algorithms for finding multipole strength of focusing magnets, let me know. I could use a little help. Granted it is one of the harder problems, but I won't let it get the best of me. It may have taken me a couple weeks, but last summer, I did end up conquering special relativity from first principles, so I should be able to get this with a moderate amount of sweat. I would say "how hard can it be?" but that does

Dragoned Away
Vertigo Chuck

Phone shopping is a beast of a task. I was in the Verizon store with my dad for about 3 hours trying to get him a new phone. Mention something else, new deals pop up, and then you are looking at different mobile OSs and different brands, and now that iPhone doesn't look so shiny anymore with the white going on. Anyway, he broke his old phone by accidentally dropping it and cracking the screen. Instead of being like one of my students, he decides to replace it. He finally decided on replacing it with one of those new Motorolas with the shatter-proof screen. It might still crack, but it won't shatter so they say. This is his first foray into Android, so we will see how it goes. He hasn't said

Some Baseball Analogy
Vertigo Chuck

So I had a snow day today. Now work for me. It was a day for me to get caught up and prep for the coming weeks for the end of the semester. I ended up getting some work done enough to play around a little bit. Sometimes programming is infuriating, you know? I got the shift registers to work. I got the display to work... Kind of. Then everything went to pot. I'm pretty sure I fried something. Maybe not. If you have ever heard of a race state, that is probably what is happening. I need to figure it out, but I don't know when I will have the time for a while. Maybe Thanksgiving? All I wanted to do was print my name out to test my functions. Oh well. We will get to it eventually. At least it compiles.

He has hosted trivia before, but never the quiz. In fact, before last night, he was a little hazy on the format. At least I think I'm remembering that right. I didn't have too much to drink, but I am hung over... With Science! He did a great job for his first time out. He even did the honest thing and brought his wife along to play.

Intervention!
Vertigo Chuck

I totally felt like a spider last night In my corner, there was a giant fake cobweb that I was pressed up against. I bit the quizzors with venomous venom. Wrapped them up, then externally digested them inside cocoons of spider silk. Really though, I just had a hamburger and tots. Should have had fried cheese balls. Mmmmm fried cheese balls. I never have them often enough. Get a little marinara, and bam they taste so good. They usually serve them with ranch. I never jumped on the ranch bandwagon. I just don't like it. Call me un-American, but it just doesn't taste good to me. Like mushrooms or Brussels sprouts. I like other kinds of sprouts though. Bean sprouts are pretty tasty with pho. Alfalfa

Well, for one, a lot of people need to brush up on their Scorsese films. He has never directed a Pixar film, and I doubt he ever will. We also learned that most of us have contempt for 1970s pop psychology. I certainly sympathized

Dude, What's the Answer?

As I sit here planning for tomorrow's classes... and hoping that Chromebooks can support flash applications, or Angry Birds (we are starting projectile motion. Physics can be fun a lot of the time). Well, it turns out that they can. I just checked this morning. It also turns out that PSAT testing was today, so I needed to punt on that lesson in favor for something else. Luckily I had something up my sleve. Considering I wasn't wearing a jacket at the time, that is an impressive feat. Everything worked out in the end. Unlike that Red vs Blue cliffhanger.
