사실은 송운이 어깨 너머 보이는 창문은 복도에 난 창문이구요 제 연구실은 바로 그 창문 옆 방이었어요.

Luke 1:46-55

46 And Mary said:

My soul doth magnify the Lord.
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49 Because he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name.
50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
51 He hath showed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
52 He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble.
53 He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away.
54 He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy.
55 As he spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

56 And Mary abode with her about three months. And she returned to her own house.


Gas price

어젠 간만에 기름을 넣으러 갔더니 지난번 넣었을 때보다 50 cents가 내렸다.

오늘 신문에 다음 주부터 한국은 1500원대로 내려간다든데 여긴 갤런당 $2.799니까 오늘 환율 1444원 적용하면

$2.8 * 1,444원 / 3.785L = 1,068원/L이 되는구나.

갤런당 $4에 육박했던 때를 생각하면 많이 내리긴 했지만 여전히 비싼 것 같다.

Grad student

Posted on Oct 9, 2008

Chris, a tech in my lab, showed me the following video clip of “the Simpsons”. I found a sort of a full version of this movie clip.

[Scene 1]
Bart: I’m gonna talk to PhDs. Hey, guys! I heard an assistant professorship just opened up. (Oh~ yeah!) At the University of Psych! (Ah~u~)

[Scene 2]
Bart: I was so bored I cut the pony tail off the guy sitting in front of us. “Look at me. I’m a grad student. I’m 30 years old and I made $600 last year.”
Marge: Bart, don’t make fun of grad students. They’ve just made a terrible life choice.

[Scene 3]
A professor: No food for you, grad students! To your great 3,000 papers!
