I knew you of all my readers would like this poem. I'm sure all my other smart, sexy readers will like it too, but how often do you get poetry about applied physics?

Not often enough!

Awesome.

Does anyone have a comment on what I assume is Megan's handwriting? I read a book about graphology once; I consider it about half a step above astrology. But it's fun at parties! -K.

That's my bad handwriting. I would love an analysis, if anyone feels qualified.

Ha! There really does need to be more poetry devoted to the physical sciences.

Pies, porn, and poetical physics...what next?

Was it about physics? I thought 'K' was Karma or Kismet.

Was s/he pushed or did he fall?

Will he live, will he die
Or maybe both, how very sly
It's in the air for all that,
indecisive, like Schroedinger's cat

I thought leaving one's life to the vagaries of k was irresponsible. Does stick-man have a stick-daughter or any other dependents?

I've got a CD made by some physics grad students where they took some popular songs and changed the words around to be about physics. It's great.

Bob v, I LOVE your comments. That last one made me laugh out loud (I'm too cool to write LOL ;)

Glad you liked it M. I like how there are two flowers down below. Makes me think that the fall isn't such a bad thing after all...

Billo.

p.s I seem to be becoming more imaginary again.

So I looked up the Wikipedia entry on graphology to find the conventional wisdom. Sadly, it seems like it is kinda like astrology, in that the psychological part of graphology is mostly bunk. (The forensic part of it, however, seems to be well documented.)

So here goes: Your tall upper zones (the downstroke of the 'h', the 'l's) emphasize your intellect, perhaps to the point of being 'in the clouds.' Your middle zones (the size of the small 'e's, etc.) indicate that you have an average self-image, not too egotistical at all. Your lower zones (signifying id) are not big.

You might be able to make something out of the fact that the 'y' of 'may' is invading the upper zones of the 'l' below. Is lust conflicting with intellect? [I sound like a two-bit carny, by now.]

You separate your words by spaces that may be disproportionate -- may be an indicate of your willingness to be intimate.

You're not a gossiper and you're slightly shy. Your handwriting is unadorned (even your name, Megan), which may indicate your sense of aesthetics.

IANAG -- take my comments for what you will. Enjoy, K. Anyone that has a better shot, be my guest.

Shucks, Mel. Did you have to embarass me in front of ALL of these people? You should have let me know on my blog where there would be no risk that anyone would see it.

(Thank you.)

Seems like too high a "k" or too low a "k" are both bad. We want "k" to be just right.

Margie and I spent several minutes yesterday talking about how we would calculate our k's. That was fun.
