I admit I did not get the xkcd today at all. But after a quick visit to the only encyclopedia I have available, not only did I get the joke, but I found out about an eccentric - Paul Erdős, I'd never heard of before. I've sent an email to the editor at the Fortean Times, in the hopes they will want to do an article about him. Maybe they have, and I missed it. Still, I think I'd've remembered him.
Did the round robin at work, which was indeed very much like army training days when no learning occurred. Drowsy and tired of sitting all day long. Annoyed that the people whose sole job is to handle education, including writing tests for the staff, can't keep the sheets organized or write questions without typos, bad grammar or spelling mistakes, that actually make sense. Or are at all to the point of what we need to know. Inventory occurred as well, which I'd've preferred to do, but the processing staff were mostly done before we were. I did the bone freezer, which was painful and awkward, even with the insulated gloves. When I got help, it went a little faster. Not a simple task, since the freezer can't be left open, nor can the frozen bone be taken out and sorted slowly. Nor is it well organized, largely because icy plastic vacuum sealed bags are about impossible to keep in good order. Still, I enjoyed getting it done, one task of actual accomplishment today.
Oh, and the lunch. They provided a barbeque lunch. Sort of, not really a BBQ, but food outside, pale lettuce cut up in a bowl, potato salad and cole slaw - to me mayonnaise and hot sun do not mix. The hot dogs were larger than the buns provided, but at least there were jalapeño peppers. And a band, one of the staff's band. They were loud. Not terribly on key nor on time, but quite loud. Still, free food.
And the fire safety class actually had some new and useful information.
