The summer ends, and so does my 'happy blog'. I'm entering my SAD time, and I have to look to ways to increase my serotonin. Since I really don't get many comments, this blog doesn't do it. I become increasingly sensitive to all the big cats that I'm irritating!
Also, at the bottom of all my scatty blogging, I generally hoped to do some good. I'm convinced, however, that there will be no effort on regional geology, or tectonic models with the new nuclear plant, or that waste thingie -- just politicians and lawyers gumming everything up.
I'll probably just go humourless, just like every other science blog, and report on earthquakes, or some such thing. I have to put on a serious tone if I want to start doing something for money (like consulting). I figure that sooner or later there will be some major screw-ups in the nuclear industry regarding geotechnical engineering, and I'll be there!
