Rabbit sees car
Well, it is the morning of my talk. I went to the first couple of talks. Again, the plenary had the potential to add awkwardness, and again, it didn't. I then stepped out of the talks and went through my talk a couple of times. Pat from Rheology Solutions came up to me and said some encouraging things.
I shared lunch with Dalton, Kris and Richard and awaited my session. I worked out where I wanted to be looking, and I placed Richard there and sat next to him. It is now an hour until my talk, and I have taken care of every detail I can think of, no matter how small.
Key-note lecture was provided by Roger Tanner. It was quite entertaining. In it, he gave the history of two different fluid models. These models caused a lot of controversy over their history. Tanner then proved that these two models reduce to the same thing! I made the comment to Richard that there is never such violent disagreement as when two people agree.
My favourite procrastinations
The Head Heeb - Jonathan provides a balanced view on various Israeli and (former) colonial states in less developed regions of the world.
The Bladder - a sports satire site. Well worth a look.
