Irish Science

August 10, 2014

Hello from Dublin!

I’ve never seen so many [natural] redheads in my life.

Whenever I hear someone speak, I can’t help but get flashbacks of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Luck of the Irish [90s/00s kids–I know you remember that one].

Denny and I have had a good day of exploring the downtown of Dublin. We wandered onto the campus of Trinity College and ended up in the Science Gallery.

The gallery seemed to be a display of student projects–some of which were very impressive!

There was a globe that displayed global climate over the course of a hundred years in both the optimistic and pessimistic points of view, a giant vacuum/fan that held a droplet of water in mid-air, and a set of flowers that were made by a 3D printer, among other things.






It was really interesting to walk around the campus imagining what it would be like to attend school in a foreign country like this. California felt like a foreign country to me at first coming from suburbia Minnesota! But this is a whole new level.

However, as different as each place in the world has been, there are times when I get glimpses of how similar it is at the same time.

Watching college kids goofing off walking to class, going to the gym, and riding the bus are the same here as they are there…college kids.

They may be more red-headed, but most likely, they aren’t leprechauns…or some other intangible thing.

College is college, no matter where you go, and it was fun to be on a campus again and around that kind of energy–and even learn some science in the process!

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about
    losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

    This is a great tip especially to those new to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one.

    A must read article!

    Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you for some other informative site. The place else may
    just I am getting that type of info written in such a perfect means?

    have been at the glance out for such info.

    Howdy, I do think your site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
    in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Apart from that, fantastic website!

    I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful
    than ever before.

    Currently it appears like Drupal is the best blogging platform
    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks!
