I think there's a very high probability of Icarus having no power right now. I am optimistic about him having fared well through the eye of the storm..... But I really look forward to seeing a post from him soon!

Today I went to visit a friend who was presenting her poster in a local scientific mini conference. The reviewer who was evaluating the posters came to hers and asked that she begin. I thought to myself, this woman (who was evaluating my friend's poster) looks familiar, but I couldn't recall where I had seen her before. Was it her hair that was different and not making it any easier for me to remember where I had seen her? :notsure: I wasn't sure.

Anyway when it was done the reviewer turned to my friend and said "That was a great presentation, well done. I would just like to make one small correction, though. Your supervisor's name doesn't have an accent on the 'A'.

She was enjoying herself. I glanced at my friend and saw that all the colour had drained from her face. She continued. "I know this because I'm married to him."

My friend buried her face in her hands and I had to keep myself from laughing once I got over the shock, partly from nervousness. It was then that I recognised her. We all laughed about it afterwards.

Moral of the story: if you don't want to go through unnecessary embarrassment don't misspell your supervisor's name!

Nice little story, Silver,  thank goodness the reviewer was not an old dragon!

But, uh...well there it is.

I get that sometimes too, but usually it's just a misinterpretation of events and in reality people are too wrapped up in their own microcosms of existence to bother about anyone else.

Fairly certain it's true.

Why do you think they want to hurt you, if you don't mind my asking?

They are just sick in the head. I'm just the better person so they want to bring me down to their level.

That sucks, having to interact with such people.

I forgot Icarus was from Florida, thinking for some reason that he was from Louisiana,...I hope he's well.

FrB, are they rolled on the roller's thigh, like the best Cuban cigars are supposed to be?
