Warning: This post contains self-indulgent meanderings on the passage of time. If you young'uns can't handle that, skip this post and get off of my lawn. A few weeks ago I was in the lunch room of Nevis Labs. I was the oldest one there. The rest were summer students about 20 years old. The topic had…
