It's That Time of Year Again

I just realized that I’ve passed my Third Blogoversary! Google tells me that three is the Leather Anniversary, which sounds pretty kinky.

I’ll take this opportunity to invite regular visitors who are inclined to leave a comment to give a short summary of who you are/what you do. Do did you come for the physics and stay for the silly posts, or was it the other way around?

  1. Hello Tom,
    Congratulations on making three years. Your informative and oftentimes humorous physics posts are a regular topic of conversation in my high school physics classes in Boston, MA. Your comments on science’s portrayal in the media and pseudoscience are particularly helpful to my work. Many thanks for what you do.

  2. Tom, I am an engineer living on the central coast of Oregon. I read Swans on Tea daily and often share it with friends and family. Congratulations on 3 years and I hope you keep it up for many more.

  3. Hey Tom,

    just a regular high school student here, but I do find your blog posts immensely interesting and very beneficial to expanding my knowledge of physics, even though physics isn’t really my thing. And the silly posts are usually just plain hilarious, can’t even come close to counting how many people have laughed their heads off due to your posts. Keep up the good work, congratulations, and thank you very much.

  4. Hello Tom,

    Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary.
    Your blog is my computer’s homepage so I don’t miss your posts. I am a highschool physics and general science teacher in the Netherlands and use a lot of your posts (or the links) in my classes. Sometimes just for a break, sometimes to help explain the subject we are working on.
    There are very few posts that I think are not usable in my classes, and hardly ever one that I think is not interesting for me.
    Thank you for all your work and keep up the good work.

  5. 3X congrats! When everybody thinks the same thoughts, nobody thinks at all.
    We eagerly anticipate IceCube ramming proton decay half-life right up SUSY’s nose. Shine a light…

  6. A physicist in a past life (experimental thermodynamics), I’ve done some aerospace (light scattering critical phenomena on the Space Shuttle), a bit of Hubble stuff, some satellite communications, and now I’m trying to get going with a nonprofit for public science education. I stay for the physics, the silliness, the links, & the brevity, plus your world-view and a few other things.

  7. Congrats on the three years, I hope you keep it up.

    I’m a tenure-track assistant prof. working in experimental AMO. I come for the funny post titles.

  8. Congrats.

    I work in industry (optical physics) and also am a part time physics prof.

    I enjoy the physics and silly posts equally.
