1. What is something you have learned in the last 6 months?
When helium-4 is cooled below 2 K (0 K is absolute zero), it becomes a superfluid and it will climb up the sides of the container. Now I've know about this behavior for years; but what I recently learned is that this odd behavior is a Clausius-Clapeyron relation which is inexplicable by "normal" physical models and can only be understood as a phenomenon of quantum mechanics. That's pretty fucking cool.
2. Name the last food you tried for the very first time. Did you like it?
Maison d'or sauce, like they used to serve at Antoine's. It was pretty tasty.
3. If money, time, responsibilities, and obligations were not considerations, what would your life look like right this minute?
I'd be sitting in the cockpit of my Lagoon 42 (sailing catamaran) named Schrodinger's in the middle of a pleasant multi-day trip from my home on St. Croix. And my dinghy would have the name "Live Cat" painted on the port side and "Dead Cat" on the starboard. And the staterooms would be labelled Quantumstateroom 1, Quantumstateroom 2, etc. And I'd call the saloon The Hilbert space. And all the electronics would be hung from bra-kets. And... well, I guess I'll stop there. I don't wanna beat the theme to death. (grin)
4. Working within your limitations, what things could you do to create some of the feelings you would expect to have if you were living your dream life?
Within my limitations? Limitations? Hey! What kinda lame-ass meme is this? Did the Scientologists originate it or something? If you're not living your dream life, you're doing it wrong. Maybe you're not currently doing the precise *activity* you'd enjoy engaging in; but you sure as hell better be living your life cuz if you're not, then you're living someone else's life. That sucks.
5. Is there a current goal on which you are working?
Helping the girls reach their maturity/independence.
6. What is one thing you could get up and do right this minute to put you closer to your goal?
Stop doing this meme and
7. Is there something stopping you from doing that one thing right this second?
Just finishing this question. See ya! Hey, girls, whatcha doin'?
