各地有各地的美食，放下妈妈的电话，我就思念起故乡的种种美味。或许是文人墨客不齿，这些乡野的极品不得登堂入室，美名远播。如今随着馋人飘洋过海，仍然名不见经传，却成了识别乡党的不二法门。本人桑梓何处就不点破了，据我所知，四海之内，有这几样小食者，也只有吾乡。 毕竟是何等美食？我来罗列一下，顺序并不代表我钟爱的程度～脂饼，鸡鸭和乐（旱肉）， 朝天锅，肉火烧，全羊汤，腌蓝蟹，黄焖甲鱼，芥末鸡。
除这独享的珍品之外，再有种类繁多堪比韩国泡菜的各色酱瓜腌菜，实在是吸收海盐的绝妙伴侣，尤其挂念的是姜不辣（菊芋,地环），（青）花椒，榨菜头（芥菜），辣菜丝。 吾家望海，吾舅贩鱼，自幼食海陆鲜无数，阳春白雪，下里巴人，雅俗共赏，无一漏网：对虾，虾虎（虾蛄，琵琶虾，趴虾），海蜇，海虹（贻贝，青口，这本是乡人论桶称来下酒的俗物，不想米国之人敬为海鲜，实在费解），扇贝（没想在新大陆反成“下品”），鲍鱼，牡蛎，鲅鱼（鲭鱼，马鲛mackerel），银鱼，沙丁，蛏子，偏口(比目)，虹鳟（rainbow trout），罗非（tilapia）,鳜鱼（桂鱼），黄姑，黄花，鲳鱼，石斑，鳕鱼,加吉（真鲷），刺参，象拔，响螺，海胆，凤尾（anchovy,一条小鱼，中外食法大异），白鳞，墨鱼（乌贼），鱿鱼，八带（章鱼，不是丐帮弟子）。最绝的是新鲜的海蜇，放在一口海碗里，夏日阳光下晒化了，加点调料便喝下去了。估计爸妈养我这么多年，吃掉一个水族馆了吧，对比米加人民的海鲜食谱实在是单调啊。
哈喇子在这里流了半天，内子的实验脂饼也快出笼了。不过下次再汇报配方吧(If I ever remember that is)。
Sidney Coleman, one of my favorite great theoretical physicists of all times, died on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2007. I never had the privilege to know him personally, but this is still a very sad news for me.
Thousands of physicists around the world learned from him either in person or (more) through his classic book on quantum field theory, aspects of symmetry
from whose back cover he forever smiles at you. You can see that charming and witty smile every time you turn the book.
This is the book I would keep in the case I sold all other physics books, and I have sold many of those I once own lately. Those books become more and more boring as you learn, this one is the exact opposite.
Sidney Coleman made tremendous contributions to theoretical physics, some of the best known examples of his master pieces being, the Coleman-Mandula theorem, the Coleman-De Luccia bubble, the Coleman-Weinberg potential. These are, to this day, standard tools or guidelines in their respective fields of study.
Few had understood quantum field theory as deeply as he did, as testified by various physicists who knew him, including accounts by Jacques Distler, Lubos Motl and others in the blog sphere (or ball). Contrary to quite a many brilliant theorists, Sidney Coleman was also Ph.D. advisor to many brilliant field/string theorists, including a nobel laureate.
I always think of Sidney as the Zen master of theoretical physicist, a very powerful one, much more than many people who aspire to be so or who even write physics books with such titles :D. Yoda of physics, maybe not so appropriate an analogy.
On Sunday, I was actually turning through the pages about the bounce in Sidney’s book. Another celebrated theoretical physicist who also died on a Sunday recently (in my calendar/memory) was the nobel prize laureate Hans Bethe ( a student of Arnold Sommerfeld, I later learned from a more knowledgeable person on planet earth ).
The reason I remember that incident is that I was driving home with a friend that same Sunday evening, and he was telling me Cornell was preparing a conference to celebrate Hans’ 100 years birthday. Sadly he passed away before that could happen. The Sidney fest happened in 2005, and can be visited here.
<Incidentally, the Coleman-Mandula theorem heralded the discovery of supersymmetry, and supersymmetric quantum field theories, with the first example constructed by Julius Wess and Bruno Zumino ( and dubbed the Wess-Zumino model after them). Julius Wess, also a collaborator of Sidney Coleman, had passed away earlier this year.>
is definitely the internet, by far. Google is its language and wikipedia/mathworld the major lecture notes. The speed at which it picks up definitions with(out) errors is simply amazing.
The arXiv is not doing its due contribution this year to the advance of, say, hep theory. Low quality substance results in lower number of addictions.
Did the physicist who invented intranet at CERN ever get awarded anything by the self awarding computer gurus? Ah, don’t even mention genius @ the green fruit shop.
“鬼子来了”小资版。张爱玲花痴，李安耍屁，影片炒蛋。全体演员拉出去X了，北大小南门外面，今天晚上半夜之前，我签字。封锁消息。The“L-C” camera crew deserve my wholehearted respect! Beautiful work! Love the bokeh :D
I guess time has long come to accept that Hollywood movie is one place to come and watch some soft porn. Maybe that’s because at least in the commercial layer of Western culture, love and sex are so important subjects, all human directors rush to address them in fear of sudden mortal impossibility shall arise incurred by biological irregularity.
As a Eastern man, I strangely value freedom above all from my 20+ years of receiving brainwash in the backwaters of China. Such freedom is not associated to the chariot of the fighting dude, rather of the kind of raising a few flowers in a small hide out by a village.
Of course, no director can approach the guild of O-scar with such a lame themed movie, where one little man lives in a little house in the air of menacing governing by the tough and rough.
Ann Lee sure knows what sex to include in his movies, gay sex, BDSM. You as I can very well guess what to come, not necessarily by him, but surely by someone: bestiality, 3 somes, orgy…… To be fair, these are everyday occurrences in the porn world. Would be such a joy to watch some new coming classics on your Wii, don’t u agree?
things in my world come slow. i just thought of this question, anyone of you passers by know the answer?
Q: who watch ‘sex and the city’? more men or more women?
Now that I’ve crossed the border, THE city seems to have always been a nice place.
A: This is a nice one, shall we keep this one?
B: No, not really. Eh, there’s a hole here (thinking->this really is fine, well, since we brought it down here.).
That box got stepped on and flatten. It then went to the recycle bin.
If someone was around, he’d’ve just watched someone getting executed. Pretty much.
Mostly hanging out on facebook nowadays. WordPress sucks for pictures.
