Got the Job: Science in Motion

I'll be moving back to Auburn AL! Yesterday I was accepted for the open Science in Motion position at Auburn U. I'll be moving lab supplies around area high schools and helping overworked physics teachers. Also, there's about 20 outreach programs to work on including one on global warming from NASA.

Here's my new ride. Dr Simon took the picture on my phone. He's about 70 or so, so the picture is mostly grass. He said this is the first time he's taken a picture with a phone.

After the move, I plan to be car-free again except the van. Any idea how I could move car-free from about 200 miles away? I have very few earthlies to move.

Finally, the voices in my head have been telling me that I need to get out of the house more or I will never meet potential new victims.

Thanks for your consideration. Hire me or I will harvest your skin.

Flatmaster

PS, I am going to harvest your skin either way, but if you hire me, I will make it less unpleasant for you in the end.
