Battlepanda: Arcadia


Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

A bunch of old friends I used to go to school with are in town to visit, so we ate out and went to see a student production of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia. Damn, it's been a long time since I've had a social life. Like Kevin, I also share an automatic distrust for attempts to (mis)apply cool-sounding physics to other fields that has got nothing to do with physics, for it is a flakey thing to do. The play was OK though. I guess you get away with things if you're as talented as Stoppard.

Geez. Nobody tries to use organic chemistry to explain the meaning of life. Even though it as much sense if not more than using entropy or the uncertainty principle to do the same.
