lol, how had I never seen this before?

Ladies and gentleman: Dave Dorfan, the chair of our physics department up until a little over a year ago when he retired (who happens to live 5 doors down from me):

Dave's Alter Ego

I wish I knew when this was from... I wonder if this was one of those departmental parties I got an email about and just deleted!

On a side note, the last mimzy looks like it could be good (or, it might be really bad... but I will take an optimistic approach and hope it could be another Contact). At any rate, Brian Greene is in it (watch for him in the trailer).

Speaking of Brian Greene, I was recently reading that he has one of the lowest Erdos-Bacon numbers in the world. This made me wonder what mine is... my Bacon number is 2, but I don't know what my Erdos number is (although I would guess somewhere around 4-5). The Erdos-Bacon number is the sum of the two.

"Mrs. Dorfan" is the best!
God, that was wonderful.

The funniest part for me is that Dave is usually one of the most masculine professors in the department. Let me put it this way... if I had to get into a fist fight with any of them, he'd probably be the one I'd be the most afraid of! (and that's saying a lot, considering his age.)

ha, you must be one of the few people who would have a legitimate shot at a lower erdos-bacon numbers by actually being able to improve your erdos number :).

Awesome. The note on YouTube mentioned the Cosmolympics, so you probably never heard about the event. And I noticed Paul Graham at the end; could ask him what it was all about.

re: that video
i know where that video came from. i actually recorded it. that was from the 2006 cosmos summer camp at ucsc. dave invited all his students to his house for a big BBQ dinner. and paul was in there because he was our other teacher at the camp. paul and dave are definately both in the top five coolest dudes i have EVER met.
