  • I really swear these days, they are handing out PhD's

    too any idiot that wants one, and is will to write a thesis at the end.

     

    I'm off to the auto parts store to buy a light bulb.

     

    Don't ask, but I set one of the lab instructors up with a variac to turn the brightness of a standard light bulb up and down. I didn't have a dimmer switch in my back pocket, and she said the variac looks dangerous. I thought variacs where like standard lab equipment.

     

    Oh well, another day. 4 more years to go. It's gonna be a long 4 years too.

    Worlds gone stupid...cant believe you just noticed.

     

    I've had people who dont know what a graduated cylinder is. I musta learned that in the 5th grade.

     

    I've had people who cant read a ruler.

     

    I've had people who cant tell you which is larger...1/3rd..1/4..1/8th.

     

    But...they all know days off and how much they wanna get paid.

     

    I work by myself now...I'm happy-ER!:cat:

      believe me I just didn't notice.

       

      So the update on f!@kin light bulb. Looks like last night the instructor was here till about 7pm and it looks like she used a variac and a heat lamp. I will talk to her later, but i bought a 14volt car tail lamp and hold, which i will bring back if they are not gonna use.  She is also have issues with a digital spectrometer she purchased online. I saw the thing when it came in and there was no directions, she said she'd figure ity out and how it worked. Doesn't looks like she has yet though.

       

      Not long ago we did a demostration on the magnaetic flied lines of a few bar magnets, ya know with iron fillings. WTF, some folks much have been out of science class in the 3rd grade. I work at a small college.

       

      I really got to get out of here.
