  1. Love the rubber chicken! Fun fact: In the QC lab at my job there is a rubber chicken hanging over the PCR thermocycler. Why, you ask? Because the thermocycler is notoriously temperamental so the rubber chicken is to guarantee good juju for the PCR reactions.

    1. Hah, that’s funny! It reminds me of a thing programmers do sometimes when they are having an issue (I never got to this point but I’ve heard the story). If a person is having trouble with fixing a bug or an unpredictable behavior in their program, they will set a rubber duck next to the computer and explain how the program *should* work to the rubber duck. Usually, the problem will be borne out in the discussion and the programmer can fix it!

  2. Best clam chowder I ever had was in Boston in some hole in the wall eatery off the harbor while on a work trip. I don’t remember the name, but it convinced me that the best food is found in the small, hole in the wall eateries.

  3. Not sure why, but when I listen to Parallel Universe the end scene of I, Robot (Will Smith version) comes to mind.
