Entertain Yourselves

I’m off for a much-needed vacation, and will be Internet-less for the next week. Woo-hoo!

The plan of the moment is to set up a handful of physics “news” items to appear next week (the scare quotes are because some of these items are weeks old), but otherwise there won’t be any updates. If you’re wholly dependent on this blog for your daily entertainment needs, use this opportunity to get a frickin’ life, will you?

If you find yourself desperate for something to do, somebody has set up a stub ScienceBlogs page at Wikipedia, which could stand to be upgraded with more information about the network and the individual blogs. There’s also a general category page for science blogs, which is pretty pathetic at the moment (and is particularly lacking in the later part of the alphabet). If you’re so inclined, you could easily fill the whole week by adding and updating Wikipedia pages about science blogs.

Or, you know, you could pick up a heavy book (Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler, say), and hit yourself in the face with it. Repeatedly. Whatever floats your boat.

Anyway, I’m outta here. Don’t make too big a mess while I’m gone…
