astra_nomer: (AB Aurigae)
Today, I submitted an abstract for the upcoming AAS Meeting in June. At the end, there was a field I'd never seen before, for a "plain language" abstract of 10-50 words. Apparently meant for journalists and laypeople (and nosy politicians, I bet).

Part of me was tempted to enter, "This science is totally cool and awesome!" or "this is teh best science EVAR" but I was good and entered in something serious but comprehensible.

It brings to mind a conversation I had with a colleague recently - writing rejection letters in txt msg format. "No job 4 U. kthxbai."
