A toast to the Simpsons
As mentioned on the BBC, the Simpsons, now that Fox has ordered two more seasons, is set to become the longest running prime-time series on television (in the US, anyway). Of course, some detractors have their own complaints:
But, despite the fact that the Simpsons have, statistically speaking, "done it," I still propose a toast. Huzzah!
I'm a research scientist in low energy nuclear astrophysics, currently doing research in collaboration with groups across the northern hemisphere. I have a PhD in Applied Physics and a BS in Engineering Physics from well-renowned college in Colorado, have performed with several semi-professional orchestras, once was a park ranger, and read voraciously.
Oderint dum metuant (did I mention I also studied Latin?).
