This is transcendently ridiculous. For the many international CV readers, today is the US's Independence Day celebration, which is in large part an excuse to bar-b-que meat products, blow up fireworks, and drink beer. If you're tuning in from abroad, you are probable sober enough to read Daniel's upcoming post on gravitational waves. For the rest of the drunken US crew, you can probably handle the Muppets. PS. While we're talking beer, I must recommend the current Full Sail Limited Edition L.T.D. (Recipe No. 3), sold in bottles with the pale blue label. Seriously. Try some.
