    Is there any interest in a boing boing/AAAS meetup one of the nights? Possibly following the ‘Annals of Improbable Research’ on Friday.

    Crap like this is why I’ve had coherent beam-scattering sclerae installed. Anti-personnel non-lethal directed energy weapons? Fuck that shit.

    We had the same warning sign on the door of the physics lab I worked in at Dalhousie :)

    I was wondering why there were so many people walking around the Salk campus yesterday when I left work. I just assumed it was some UCSD tour or something. Which labs did you go into, if you know their abbreviated names like PBL or MNL.

    I kept trying to put that up outside my lab room in grad school but a squeamish labmate kept ripping it down. (My version of the sign was complete with a retinal scan of someone who’d gotten retinal burn — and man that took a long time to print out on the crappy color printers of the time.)

    Good times….
