Lars came over from New Haven today and we took a walk in this beautiful sunny weather down at the waterfront while discussing life, love and science. Tons of ice were floating down the Hudson. It was piling up at the piers and the view gave us a chill. Lars asked me how long I thought a man could survive in this icy water, just as I was having exactly the same thought. The wind made our faces dry out and ache in an instant, so we continued our discussion at Dinosaur BBQ over ribs and beer. Of course, the Czech waitress mistook us for a couple. We decided not to disappoint her and played along with it. I think she liked us. A fun day.
