I am looking at the paper I am currently working on (no you do not want to know what it's about) and I noticed that I used "quite" in the same sentence three times!! I can distinctly remember knowing a lot more words back when I was in high school. Ten years of science education has eradicated my useful vocabulary. Now I say useful because in the meantime I have managed to pick up more than enough science and math words that are totally useless in real life. Try dropping eigenvalue, hermitian, orthogonal, or adiabatic into normal conversation. It never works out well.
I think I might try to blog this weekend about college football and more importantly the broadcasts of such games. I hope to include biting analysis of commentators and hilarious barbs about crappy ass commercials.
