Yesterday I had a little meet and greet with Peter Jenni, the spokesman of the ATLAS experiment. He has given a sort of “understandable-for-everyone” talk in the Helmholtz Lectures Program at Humboldt-University of Berlin. Afterwards we’ve been invited to a little reception, where I had the chance to talk a bit to our btw. very nice spokesman about this and that … unfortunately no pictures have been made this evening :-(
I just got some incredibly stupid piece of information…
As some of you might know I was/am struggling to set up my badminton class, after coming back to Berlin… to remind you, this happened in March!
Well… here’s the whole story wrapped up:
- some stupid janitor removed all the barriers I put in front of the fire exit, that were supposed to prevent even more stupid people to get into the gym
- some even more stupid people now found their way into the gym (how did that happen?) and put up a fire in it…
- some very surprised bureaucrats decided to take down the gym
- again some bureaucrats go surprised, this time because they found out that they actually had an insurance that would cover all that sh**
- the gym got reconstructed, reopened and closed just one day after, due to some broken water pipe now flooding the gym
- again some bureaucrats found out that they actually have an insurance
- the gym got reconstructed again
- of course it got reopened as well, but
- and that’s the best part: the local government decided that 20 gyms in the area have to be taken down… and guess what!
Is there anyone out there that can explain these kind of things to me?
btw. sorry to all badminton fans out there, but I am trying hard to set things up again… but you have wait some more days!
Today I made the final decision and rejected the job/master thesis offer I got from the surface science group in Berlin. Unfortunately I still don’t have a room in Copenhagen. But as I read some days ago: “Physicists have a genetic defect, which makes them way to optimistic”. So, here we go…
