    Not quite so much attention as for landing a spaceship on a comet, and understandably so, but I just defended my dissertation yesterday, and I wore my Surly-Ramics tie clip with a multipolar cell design. So that’s an option too.

    I can plug Surly-Ramics here, right?

    I’m not going to defend his choice of shirt, but his ink is awesome.
