Meet Dr. Ke Chen


Ke had just defended successfully his (IMHO strong) thesis.

**Congratulations Ke!**

Ke was my first graduating victim. Now I need to find a new victim(s)…

Vyasa is also the father of most of the characters in Mahabharata.

Yes, but how this is related to the game of genocide?

What a great bit of backstory that is, though the fan fiction possibilities are not as good as for Kirk/Spock. And if you wonder whether “backstory” means what you think it means, you can learn that “The Legend of Zelda” has one, and that the Mahabarata, written by Vyasa, has the largest one. And if you wonder who this Vyasa was, you can learn that he didn’t just write the Mahabarata, he’s a character in it, and an occasional boddhisatva, and split the veda, and that the island where he was born was covered with jujube plants. And if you wonder if the jujube plant is related to the candy, you can learn officially that “If multiple Jujubes are placed in the mouth at once, saliva will congeal the candies into a single mass.” And?.

Did you know that?

Dumbledore is gay???? And here I was thinking that Dumbledore was just a creation of fiction intended to induce fear and excitement in children, just like Saddam’s WMDs. How could I have been so wrong??? It turns out that Dumbledore is real and GAY! Just like Saddam’s WMDs

Well put Sariel. I think the editors should have the courtesy to
send an email directly to the reviewer and handle it through
the electronic system once the reviewer accepts.

Email invitation

Dear Professor Doctor Loser,

As you recall, we had chosen *you* among thousands and thousands of other losers to referee the wonderful paper PALG534543 for Pathatica Algorithmica, but we had yet to receive your gracious thanks for this unique honor we had bestowed upon you. We are appalled that you had failed to accept our most glorious invitation for this important task. This is especially appalling as we know that you are an employed loser, that does nothing except smoking pot all day (and night), and has nothing better to do than to referee this amazing paper IMMEDIATELY. In case you forgot, you can confirm agreeing to referee this wonderful paper at:

http://pathethica.algorithmica.com/PALG534543

(After agreeing to the NDA agreement, and guarantee that you would NOT referee a paper for our competitor Pittifulla Algorithmica in the next 6 decades.)

Should you for some (REALLY GOOD) reason be unable to referee this magnum opus, you can decline the invitation using the same link. However, in such a case you must submit (promptly) a signed letter from both your parents explaining your most deranged behavior.

IN ANY CASE, YOU MUST DECLINE OR ACCEPT OUR EXTREMELY POLITE INVITATION IMMEDIATELY. WE REPEAT IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS THE 153th TIME WE ARE BOTHERING YOU ABOUT IT, AND WE ARE UNABLE TO GET ANY HINT BY THE FACT THAT YOU DID NOT RESPOND ALREADY. AS SUCH, WE ARE PLANNING TO BOTHER YOU ABOUT THIS INVITATION AT LEAST 200,000 TIMES IN THE NEXT 50 YEARS. If you would have the audacity to die during this period, we plan to continue asking you to accept or decline this invitation via mediums and other means at our disposals (lets just say that Saddam was also unwilling to answer one of our kind invitations). At this stage of your post-mortem existence, should this fail to get a prompt response from you, we are planning to desecrate your tomb, hunt down your family, and systematically delete all references of your so called “research” from all human records, digital or physical.

With kind regards and deep love,

SoCG 2008 call for papers

Is [out][1]. Deadline is Dec. 3, 2007. Once again I am on the committee, which means that this is going to be the first SoCG since 96 in which I did not have a paper.

Very cool. I love proxy sites. Strangely enough that one has a Google PageRank of 7 – you’d think Google would penalise them. BTW – check this out – 12 things I bet you didn’t know about Google � bient�t, Malkie, Paris.
