Hi. My pc is still rebooting. One of these days, new computer.
 
2012-06-19 08:55:32 PM  
It is science, or syEnce.
 
2012-06-19 09:01:44 PM  
I guess, technically, it is Science tonight.

Work is buying me a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Yay! Won't ship for 3-4 weeks, though. :/

Wow, that's a big crater of green goo.

Do you have to get a doctor to install the display in your retina, or does Apple have little robots that install the display in your retina.

He is probably waiting to see if it goes green. But he is generally always late to the thread.

Hmm, my computer is almost booted.

Supposed to be hotter than Hades here for the next couple of days. Not looking forward to it.

The origin of the name is unclear.[1] There are theories that suggest that beef Wellington is named after Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. Some theories go a step further and suggest this was due to his love of a dish of beef, truffles, mushrooms, Madeira wine, and pâté cooked in pastry, but there is a noted lack of evidence supporting this.[2] In addition to the dearth of evidence attaching this dish to the famous Duke, the earliest recorded recipe to bear this name appeared in a 1966 cookbook. Other accounts simply credit the name to a patriotic chef wanting to give an English name to a variation on the French filet de bœuf en croûte during the Napoleonic Wars. Still another theory is that the dish is not named after the Duke himself, but rather that the finished filet was thought to resemble one of the brown shiny military boots which were named after him.[3]

In introducing a recipe for beef Wellington, Clarissa Dickson Wright claims "This dish has nothing to do with that splendid hero, the Duke of Wellington; it was invented for a civic reception in Wellington, New Zealand, but it is a splendid addition to any party."[4][clarification needed]

"Wellington" is sometimes informally used to describe other dishes in which meat is baked in a puff pastry; the most common variations are sausage Wellington, lamb Wellington and salmon Wellington.

So you can fly to the moon in 2015:


Britain could become the first country to fly a tourist around the moon, after an Isle of Man-based company announced that it would be ready to take passengers on private lunar expeditions by 2015

I wonder if this is their theme song...

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a, Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, in other words
I love you.

I would send them to the moon for £100m

Going to the Libration points might even be more fun than going to the moon. Probably easier to get souvenirs there.

Still drinking Italian wine after pizza. Need to move to something stronger. Gonna skip the Absenthe tonight, although I was fine the next day, maybe even a bit better than normal.

Seeing as it is only 10PM, I will likely have to open another.
