It just sounds wrong for a male deer to have a rack.
Episode 3 –
Daughter, age 7, to son, age 5: “Stop talking like an eight-year-old.”
Episode 2 –
Me to son: “What would happen if a pack of coyotes got into the house?” [Note: It’s important to ask kids questions like this to keep them on their toes.]
Son: “They’d wreck it looking for our meat stash.”
Me: “… Our meat stash?”
Son: “Yeah, the bacon and sausage we keep in the fridge.”
From the daily teacher’s email:
[Today] we read a book about how dinosaurs eat and we asked the children what they thought dinosaurs ate. Here are their words:
[Child #1]: Meat
[Child #2]: Garbage and ham.
[Son]: No, just ham. There wasn’t any garbage back then.
I’m attending the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) conference this week. I’ve read a lot of papers from past proceedings but this is the first time I’ve attended. (A few interesting talks and posters but so far nothing particularly applicable to work. Still a few days to go though.) Anyhow, best quote so far from the meeting:
You might think that you can move in any direction in the tomato space.
Ah, but you can’t! In all seriousness, the speaker was talking about a mathematical representation of tomatoes from unripe to ripe to sliced or diced. More generally, his topic was representation of objects undergoing transformations. It was an interesting talk.
