Geneva is where I was in those photos btw. It’s a pretty nice city really.
10/10, would recommend.
I went with the Physics Society from Maynooth and all that planning was actually worth it. Visited CERN and all of that sort of stuff. Fun time, realised I cannot learn Portuguese to save my life and Irish bars anywhere in the world are the single most saddening places in the universe.
Pretty good day today, I helped out with a Particle Physics thing for 5th and 6th years at Maynooth. They were analysing data from CERN, ATLAS specifically, as well as learning a bit about particle physics and all that kind of stuff. Then they had a bit of a video conference with a few other universities and CERN. All very interesting. Learning about the universe, y’know how it is.
Then the lecturer running the thing brought the four of us out for a pint and we had a great chat about university and his time at university too which was especially interesting. Then we got the bus home.
Idk, it’s kind of nice to be less formal with the people who teach you, y’know.
I just read this comment on an already shit status on facebook:
in the 60’s the governments were needing more tax revenue so Feminism was conceived it’s got nothing to do with gender equality. it was one of many social engineering expirements by the powers to be. True story.
Somebody shoot me.
Do people like this have no awareness at all as to how fucking moronic this sounds?
