The Mythbusters Wish They Were This Cool

Don Herbert, better known as Mr. Wizard, has died. There's a nice blog eulogy (blogulogy?) here. I remember watching Mr. Wizard as a kid, probably the same repackaging that the Unapologetic Mathematician watched on Nickelodeon. For some reason, a lesson on how ice is less dense than water, so water levels would actually drop when the ice in a glass melted stands out in my mind. Oh, man, now I'm going to start having educational television flashbacks...

The UM checking in :D

I don't know if you ever get to the College Perk, but I'll be there drinking to Don Herbert's memory (or whatever else I can think of) starting next week for much of the summer.

Never been, but the menu looks good. I'll have to check it out sometime.

Geeks aplenty and space cadets (literal or metaphorical) welcome. I'd say to look for the math guy, but that wouldn't help.
