I'm reasonably sure it's no longer legal to hunt Chinese people for sport.


They seem to have disappeared this year. Maybe someone else trapped them for me.

Don't you work in academic research (I always assumed lasers for some reason)? Perhaps they were some of those that were stealing intellectual property to send back to China.

Correct on both counts (government, not university).

It's honestly amazing how often that happens and how it doesn't seem to slow down our hiring of new Chinese postdocs. It drives the information security people insane.

Right now we're not allowed to accept money from China to travel to conferences, probably because of the OPM hack although nobody will say that. But we're still allowed to hire Chinese researchers and have them come learn all our cool shit. Totally rational.

We have walkers, but the design of our building restricts them to a public breezeway (thank goodness).

The people today we're standing in front of my door and yammering about this and that. Like I said, I really couldn't care less what they're doing stuff their time, but I don't need to be privy to whatever it is they happen to think is important at the moment.

I am the world's worst at recognizing when people are flirting with me (evincing romantic intentions). I just now realized that about a month ago an attractive lady I know was "making moves" so to speak, but I didn't reciprocate on account of was basically an ignoramus. And so now I'm all like "Goddammit!"

Should a Dutch Calvinist such as yourself be using the Lord's name in vain either in text or in your mente?

Next time you see her, you should expose yourself to her. Women like it when men show them their genitals (gives the the vapors).

The best strategy is to assume that everyone is flirting with you, then you will never have that Goddammit feeling. Of course I don't need to assume it as it is demonstrably true.

Whenever there is a moment where the conversation stalls just lean in and kiss them. If they freak out just tell them you were "getting the 'wrong message" and then it's on them.
