Sorry for the lack of posts, I’m going to blame the physics GRE, moving, and my general inability to focus on one thing at a time.  I swear I’ll actually post content one of these days.  As reparations of sorts, I give you a link about women’s underwear.

Red Emergency Bra

The Emergency Bra

I found this link and I couldn’t resist re-posting it.  Yes, gentlemen, bras have a usage aside from keeping you from actually seeing our breasts.  And, since there are two cups (in most cases, I hope) a woman could conceivably save another life when nuclear holocaust finally comes.  In all seriousness though, it’s not a terrible idea.  Bras are something that pretty much all women wear on a daily basis, and happen to be the right… shape for a gas mask.  While they’re readily available for purchase online, I’ll probably wait until a little closer to 2012 to go get one.

Notice anything interesting?

While I’m quite tired, I took a couple of interesting pictures whilst on campus today. These particular pictures were taken on my way to work of the back of the Brain Imaging Center. I passed by this place everyday for three years, without ever noticing what my friend pointed out to me a few weeks ago.

How about now?

How about now?

Those poles were not designed to contour with the design on the back of the MRI center, I assure you. That would be the effect of stray magnetic field from a 4 Tesla magnet. While it’s not immediately dangerous, I wouldn’t recommend prolonged exposure.  I particularly like the cautionary sign advising of the high magnetic field, conveniently placed in a central location.
