If I seem a bit on edge, it’s because we just heated oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or 477.6 K, for those of you with a thing for scientific units) and discovered that the plastic on certain objects does in fact begin to decompose at elevated temperatures. It’s a long story.
They say time flies when you’re having fun. Even at this early point of the summer, I’m afraid that if I blink, I’ll miss the rest of it—week two felt, if anything, faster than the first. Maybe it’s because this week I got to start working at NIST on my research project.
