Seen in a Caltech corridor

Filed under: Stuff — paulcook @ 3:08 pm

Appearing in a Caltech corridor today: a transcript of Pluto’s concession speech. My favourite line: Dick Cheney was quoted as saying, “Today is a victory for the terra-ists”.

Beats the UFO News, a newsletter which occasionally mysteriously appears in random theoretical physicists’ mailboxes on campus. It’s a circa 1960’s, 30-odd page collection of articles including scientific explanations [sic] of devices such as power sources for UFOs that run off the fifth fundamental force.

  1. Do you have a copy of the whole “concession speech”?

  2. Well, thing is it’s still on the wall. I could borrow it for a bit and scan it I suppose, but I’m not sure how the author feels about me posting it online in its entirety. Mmm, tricky…
