  1. I think at some point this weekend, the problematicness of this place and the problematicness of the other place reached parity, and so here we go: tech.lgbt/@davidjamesweir Going to try this on for a while and see what happens.
  2. The diamond dust (sun)dogs of Stockholm ✨🌈
  3. After solving the Guardian Quiptic clue [Fancy item lost close to store is evergreen at Christmas (9)]… … I spent way too long looking at different subspecies of European mistletoe, including the weird ones that parasitise conifers 😅 (photo: commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Viscum_album_subsp_abietis_300314.jpg)

  6. I want to make a short video about quantum mechanics with stuffed toys and call it... ... Squeakable and Unsqueakable in Quantum Mechanics
  7. Cross stitched SN1987A 🤩 instagram.com/p/CdnrrJZIY5s/
  8. If I go anywhere, it won't be Mastodon. I lived through my 'just go somewhere else/roll your own if you don't like it' phase as a teen on IRC and tinkering with open source. Nowadays I want to engage with a wide range of people & make interesting connections without gatekeeping.
  9. .orzelc spotted a book of yours at the library KallionKirjasto today!

  10. As is often the case, scottishscicomm says it best in just one tweet 👌 scottishscicomm/1572481784721584131
  11. With the help of these grumpy owls I’m going to spend some time hiking up north. See y’all soon. 💚

  12. I’d like to say I’m on the shiny new EN496 night train from Hamburg to Stockholm but tonight it’s a bus to Malmö. 🤦 It’s hard to encourage people to avoid flying when things like this happen, even if it’s an honest mistake (the timetable was wrong).

  13. My high school computing teachers were outstanding; I was all set to do computer science at university ...until a new (to our school at least) teacher, Ms. Vass, came along and made me realise physics was actually fun and physicists could be friendly, kind people. jnoronhahostler/1564644531068436484
  14. It was fun to join DCHooper91 on their stream! You can still watch on YouTube below, if you're so inclined... (and congratulations to them on nearly seven years of streams! 🎉) DCHooper91/1561397886595866624
  15. Two years into the pandemic my sourdough skills have graduated from focaccia and cinnamon buns to pataleipä (casserole bread? idk things always sound worse in English)...

  1. The blue calculator has the additional feature that it can patronisingly explain how it arrived at an answer. precinctomega/1173142944829923328
  2. Solidarity with ucu members striking today over heavy workloads (if the 100h working week Twitter drama last week concerned you, join), women and men in the same roles receiving different pay, casualisation of employment in higher education and pensions: theguardian.com/education/2019/nov/07/university-staff-dont-want-to-strike-for-fair-pensions-and-pay-but-were-being-forced-to
  3. Please normalise saying 'early career' not 'young'. Not all people at an early career stage are young and it's not fair on those people. For example, I mentor and support people who happen to be few years older than me but at an earlier career stage.
  4. Next Wed 28.3 from 16-18 KumpulaPhysics KumpulaScience hosts a special symposium in memory of Stephen Hawking, featuring physicists Katri Huitu, Kari Enqvist, Esko Keski-Vakkuri, philosopher PaavoPylkkanen, neuroscientist Pentti Tienari. All welcome! blogs.helsinki.fi/physics-colloquium/hawking/

  6. I'm briefly emerging from teaching-related Twitter semi-hibernation to tell you about the exciting postdoc jobs we're hiring for HIPhysics and KumpulaScience in computational field theory. We're a friendly and supportive team, come and join us! 🤗 academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/17551
