    Thesis defense and celebration fast approaching!

    As many of you know, I'm finishing up grad school. My thesis defense is on Sept 8 at 2 PM, and I'm hosting a quick celebration on Sept 9 (6:30 PM to ???). My BikeForums friends are, of course, invited. If you want info about either event (most likely the celebration... though if you really want to hear my thesis defense, feel free to come for that, too) just send me a PM and I'll give you the details.

    Every time a doctoral student says they are going to "defend their thesis" I picture gladiators fighting to the death. Good luck!

    Great job!!! I know that you will successfully defend your written words, but you might want to take in a katana just in case any of the people decide to get a bit uppity...

    Women think they're so clever because they can fake an orgasm for the sake of a relationship, but men can fake a whole relationship for the sake of an orgasm.

    How would I home brew this:

    It's just a simple amide coupling. Wikipedia has references for you.

    I was kidding, but I do have a real problem.


    Actually I have a aerosol catalist accelerator causing a green stain in
    a white granite.
    ( granite installers are using this to a accelerate the hardening of the glue/epoxy)
    the green shows up very light after a few minutes, the darkens to an emerald like color
    after a few days. a "poultice" changes it brown/rust color.
    We are thinking it may have something to do with copper trace elements in the stone.

    We can't seem to figure out how to reverse the reaction.
    The company won't give us the chemical makeup of the compound, as its " propriatary ".
    I think were screwed....may have to replace the kitchen counters...
