I'm a postdoc doing research in high-energy particle physics. I also have a hobby interest in computer programming.

You can find me on Twitter, or check out my blog and personal website! Or you can email me at stack@ellipsix.net.

However, please don't contact me through any other channel about something that should be handled through this site. If you do, I'll probably just tell you to post it here.

comment Are Sean Bean's characters more prone to die than others?
@KeyBrdBasher you don't need to tell me to think hard about the premise of the question. It makes no difference; I don't understand your point.

comment Are Sean Bean's characters more prone to die than others?
@KeyBrdBasher I think the opposite is true: this question is asking for a quantitative result that can be computed from publicly available data. I would argue it's one of the least opinion-based questions on the site. (And the top answer supports that, since it shows statistics to back up its conclusion.)

I'm not sure if this is on topic here, but it's not on topic at Physics so I figured it'd be worth a try.

comment What do we know of Barney's occupation?
It was explained in full an episode or two ago, so an update to this is probably in order
