I am continuously amusing myself by taking serious scientific prose and reading it a whole new way.
“but the normal assumption does not hold for these data”
Lord, when does it ever?
Or the other day I was inspired to email someone I haven’t even met in person and ask how her “toroidal lipid ring” was. (Caveat: She is a regular on this blog, so it’s not like she’s a total stranger. I mean how many people can you ask about their toroidal lipid rings and have them find you funny rather than taking out a restraining order? You guys are a gift.)
Listen, you’re all tired about the silly ways I keep myself from going stir crazy in an Arctic January. So, the choice is yours. Ask me the grammar/copyediting/whatever questions that have been burning holes in your mind. Please. I’d like to think about something other than the windchill.
