And if you complain once more, you'll meet an army of me

Fucking. Fierce.



Every year here, a few groups, including White's, make posters for their open houses for the incoming first-years. White probably got the idea from David Liu, who's been doing it for years at Harvard (I dunno how widespread the practice is at Harvard, but Liu's posters are, um, magical, to say the least). Christina White is truly an auteur open house poster-maker, clearly. Look at that throne. It was built from the skulls of her competition. And they dyed those labcoats themselves. Also, Chuck Norris is her new postdoc. He'll fit in well with the group.

Lord only knows where she gets her ideas from.

...

(actually there's a poster for the movie Army of Darkness outside the White labs, among other movie posters such as Tupac Resurrection. Yeah. Scott Denmark's poster is pretty fierce this year, as well. I hope this practice continues.)

That's bitchin'. The guy next to chuck norris with the blue is my lab TA, one radical dude. I'd say this poster is extremely effective; I want to join the group and I'm not even a grad student...or a chem major.

lolz, you're in 437 then? He and I TAed that last year together. Good times. Our students designated him as "the nice one." I was "the one who made snide remarks about the students' mothers." True story, ask him about it sometime. God I miss TAing that class.

Chuck Norris is like Dean Toste but less so.

Monday, CBS, 2030 hrs et/pt, The Big Bang Theory. Four ordinary guys and one shockingly left-bell curve blonde survive adjacent apartments.

(They should add an Armenian dominatrix down the hall. The sub-plot is she trades favors for hi-tech depilation tactics. Both are always hilariously off-kilter.)

Christina White is not a nice person - from my experience. When she was a postdoc, she acused me of stealing her chemicals and stealing her ideas and trying to steal her project.

Yeah, I'm in 437. It's pretty cool, minus the whole "the lab is 90 degrees no matter what" thing.

FYI, I think this started in the mid-1990s (take a look at the Schreiber group posters - this one from 1999 is one of my favorites...)
