So we took the class to the Odyssium (the once-and-future Space & Science Center) today. Typically, when a class takes a field trip to the science center, the staff assumes a group of grade-school children. We, however, brought a group of Master's students. Whatever, it was educational and fun, and something I think that crew sorely needed. I myself had a good time playing with the displays; at one point, I crashed three lunar landers. There were no survivors.
Bill and I showed up earlier than the class just to set up the stations and make sure everything worked out okay. He went downstairs to put something in his car, and I stayed behind to make sure nobody stole any of extremely valuable calculators. I was pretty inconspicuous, I guess, standing to the side of the poorly-lit room. One of the center's staff members, a pretty young girl, came into the room and began to check out her ass in the mirrors. One of the funhouse mirrors. She wandered around the mirrors, in 3/4 rear profile, craning her neck around to look at her - admittedly well-formed - butt. I guess people will use almost anything to look skinnier.
