I liked how they at least thought to talk a little bit about energy. But, seriously, what are the odds that Lehrer will ask them about climate or, more generally, the environment? Low - there might be one question about the environment in the series eventually.
So I watch Fringe because it's somewhat amusing sci-fi stuff, anyway, but last week they referred to people who stole things (and bodies) out of "Amber", a substance used to stop up holes in space-time, essentially, as "Amber Gypsies". It was grating to me because it's somewhat racist to use the word in that way. Would they say "Amber Jews" or "Amber Indians"?
Still drinking tea.
Had a test yesterday in the R class. I did okay, but I ran out of time because I had to spend a bit of time figuring out why one of my things wasn't working, but I saw I was low on time, so instead of finishing the problem I was working on (the second to last one), I made sure to get at least a skeleton of the solution to the last problem in. Fortunately, nobody finished, so I think it'll all be okay.
Had a moment of fright today about whether the washer would fit in the basement. It would, so, whatevs.
My lab sections are scoring higher (non-significant) on labs than other sections. I think I might be helping them along a little bit more than the others, but I don't think I'm doing so in a way that's inappropriate. My sections also scored higher on the exam (non-significant)(they were 2 of the top 3), so, you know, maybe they're smarter, too.
So last month we used 265kwh of electricity and 320 cubic feet of water. Such barbaric units. The latter figure isn't that great. The former is okay. They'll both get worse now that we have a washer.
