How Many Wonders Can One Cavern Hold?

December 12, 2017

København, Danemark

On the way home from Technical Advances in Lattice Field Theory I stopped in Copenhagen. The city is beautiful, although it doesn’t get much light in early December. I made some nice friends at a hostel, enjoyed some walking tours, and had a great hotdog. Tivoli Gardens is open for Christmas-time. We rode the roller coaster while wearing virtual-reality headsets, which was phenomenal and so obviously the future it’s hard to overstate.


Everything Is Awesome

Billund, Danemark

On my way to Odense for Technical Advances in Lattice Field Theory I flew through Billund. LEGOLAND itself was closed for the winter, but the recently-opened LEGO House was great. Very interactive, with lots of creative opportunities and amazing exhibits.

Trento, Italia

I was invited to Axions at the Crossroads: QCD, Dark Matter, Astrophysics at ECT*, the European Center for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas in Trento, Italy. It was a productive, educational workshop and Trento itself is beautiful and full of interesting history. We ate an absurd amount of carbs—the most delicious pizza I had included gorgonzola, pears, and thinly-cut strips of lard.


Orangutans are Skeptical

July 22, 2017

If you’re going to guess the name of an animal in German, the best strategy is to think “What kind of pig is this?” and guess the most naïve adjective-pig compound word that fits. If it doesn’t look like a pig, try again for a horse, bear, chicken, toad, fish, or mouse. You’ll probably get it.
