But he says it's tough to get missions like that funded, because it's almost impossible to explain to people why "the magnetosphere" is an important object of study, as opposed to a flashy Mars rover that takes lots of pictures. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This. What the anti-SAHM people don't understand is that for many careers (esp in NYC), fulltime means a 10 hours day plus commuting time.. and travel too. Yes, some jobs are manageable with kids, some aren't. [ Reply | More ]

Are you sure you work full-time? The workday is not yet over, and most people who work full time can't take their child to their "afternoon activity". So perhaps you are really just a 1/2 time WOHM?? [ Reply | More ]

NP: I live in Cobble Hill also, I always find this question hilarious. Of course we go to Manhattan often. It's not, like, hard to do, though we are across a river. We don't need to swim or row across. It's like 2 stops out of manhattan. [ Reply | More ]

We don't need to do that though, we have our own sledding hills. My point is: people sometimes ask if/how often we go into Manhattan as if it's some enormous undertaking, when we just get on the train and we are there in 10 minutes. You know? Just like they are downtown from their midtown job in 10 minutes, or whatever. It;s all connected and this part of Brooklyn especially is really super close to manhattan and no effort at all.

It was midmorning. And I thought to myself, it was midmorning a day ago, too. But it didn't feel like it had been that long since the last midmorning. It's like my midmornings were tailing on to one another and just pulling past, one after the next, every six hours. At first, I figured this was just the normal progression of age. How fucking depressing. But no; as you'll read later, it was a weird time anomaly. [ Reply | More ]

Anywho, I got to my meeting with this guy "Jeff," but was that even his real name? Seems like a boring one, for a name. I asked him what he used to do before he got here. "I raised stoats," he said. Holy fucknuggets. Now THAT'S not the shit I was expecting to hear. And as it happens, I had sat down with the wrong Jeff. The Jeff I was supposed to meet was three tables over. Man.
