I decided that I might audit a class this quarter about computational biology. One of the early slides addressed the ages old question of "what is life?"

It turns out that life is "imperfect self-replicating machines."

A cheery thought for the new year.


In other news, it is freezing here. I'm really pretty happy about my decision to buy a new winter hat. I think that it's kind of magic, since it doesn't leave my hair looking entirely "hah!" when I take it off.
