A post to make a LOLcat proud February 27, 2011

I had some help working on my dissertation today. In fact, the help was so adorable, I had to make a LOLcat out of her:

Microcat is all over equations  Maybe save Schroedinger's Cat

And on a similar note, I have a packaging fail.  I ordered some wire.  When it finally came in, I ran all over the building looking for it because the package didn’t appear to be in the receiving area.  It turned out that the wire had not come in a small coil in a packaging envelope, like I thought.  No, it came in a large plastic tube.  The plastic tube was then placed in a cardboard shipping tube.  However, this wasn’t just any tube; it was one that I think is normally used as a form to pour concrete.  The tube was six feet long.  I got my co-worker, who is approximately that height, to model it for scale:

As a side note, you can also tell that he is a mechanical engineer because of the plaid shirt.

So yes…they shipped my wire as a single strand, doubly packed in a plastic tube and then a large cardboard tube.  I didn’t find it initially because it was leaning on a wall away from the table where all the packages were lying.

*Apologies for the pictures not being the best quality.  They were taken with a cell phone.
