FBI wants students to stop travelling, because they could talk about US secrets ;)

The totally useless American movie rating. Die Hand IV with brutal killings rated PG-13 while Amelie, containing a a funny montage of orgasms, was rated R. Go and shoot your neighbors!

Developing Intelligence? You are mentally disabled if you solve this puzzle ;) .

I need to get out of here … this country is crazy!!!! ;-)

Oh wait, if the FBI lets me go.

PS: 3 famous psychology experiments that would be illegal today ;)

Kroger, gas-prices and 10c/gallon off

This may be boring for most of you but interesting for some (including me :) ). The Kroger buy-groceries for $100 and receive 10c/gallon off at a Kroger gas station works! I tested it yesterday! Yeah, I thought that the regular gas price would just be higher, but it was in fact already cheaper than all stations in Bton – and I got an additional 10c off. How exciting, huh? It was pretty exciting until I realized that I pumped only 10 gallons … that’s $1 saving :-( . And I had to drive down to the South-Kroger. Anyway, I paid exactly $25 (18 EUR) for a full tank of gas. I think I can hear some Germans crying over there ;-) . But hey, my freaking stupid American car eats 9l/100km :-( .

I’m famous :)

I have some scientific news because they affected my private life enormously :) . My paper was accepted at the Supercomputing 2007 in Reno! Yeah, the first supercomputing paper in my career! A EuroPVM paper was also accepted, but that’s way less exciting than the SC07! LibNBC begins to gain attention, and I need to finalize version 1.0 (full MPI-2 support) before SC07 in November :) .

So how did this affect my private life? I hit the bars on Wednesday and had some interesting experiences :) . And I don’t know how/when I got home.
