Dad Life, potty talk Show more
@jhlee LoL, I'll probably regret this but here goes:
I feel the poop a comin'
It's rollin' 'round the bend,
And I ain't had a bowel movement
Since, I don't know when
I'm stuck here on this toilet
And time keeps draggin' on
But my stomach keeps a-rollin'
So I just sit on down
When I was just a baby
My Mama told me, "Son
Always be a good boy
Don't ever risk the runs, "
But I did it down in Reno
I just flushed it down
When I feel that stomach rumblin'
I hang my head and frown

I just wrote a song about trying to get my son to poop on the potty to the tune of Folsom Prison Blues.
I was thinking about the language from the community standards about obfuscation of the link target which occurs with a DOI. Most DOIs are reputable though I don't know about user tracking. However, I could start a random blog and use The Winnower or another service to point DOIs to it.
@socrates maybe you've addressed this before so sorry if I've missed it, do DOI links go against the no shortened links clause of the community standards?
The Engineering Archive now has had more preprint submissions in 2019 than were submitted in all of 2017! Not #AprilFools!
The river in my town is running pretty high. Bad news bears for those downstream.
Maybe hide the salary in the job description. Like the first letter of each line spells the amount.

I just processed a transfer application for someone I graduated highschool with. I fully expect the children of my classmates to show up in the next 5-10 years.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
