"We have figured this out, yes," said Dimitri. "With lasers. It was very illuminating experiment."

"Was that a pun?"

"It was!"

"Good one!"

We both laughed. Stratt glared at us.

I am reading Hail Mary by Andy Weir finally and this little interchange made me laugh out loud. Honest nerd humor as they geeked out in a part of the story.

Two quotes I came across today, largely unrelated but wanted to capture both on the blog

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." - T. E. Lawrence

"One of the dumbest things you can do is sit in one place_and let the world pass you by" - Robert Propst

I am really enjoying Weir's Hail Mary. I didn't really know what is was about, and I'm glad I went into it dark. It turns out it is one of my favorite subgenres of sci-fi.
