Things Astronomers Say Video

by Kelle on July 20, 2012

So, this is about 6 months late, but we made a Sh*t Astronomers Say video while at the DotAstronomy conference:

We spent just one day on it followed by a couple days of editing. Most of the real work was done by Emily, Niall, and Boris. (If you don’t know me, I’m the one in the green striped shirt.)

If you’re unfamiliar with the meme, here’s a good playlist. My personal favorite is Shit New Yorkers say:

And there’s also Shit Scientists Say, which we actually didn’t watch before making ours!

This is so funny! I love the part where we complain about traveling. So many people hate us for that.

Guys, that was awesome! My favorites are the love/hate IDL and the speaker’s time limit. So very universal! 🙂

Nice disclaimer at the end, reminds me how they put one on the “Bad Project” (parody of Bad Romance) Youtube video after some misunderstandings that fun is a necessary part of life!

Exoplanets. Exoplanets. Exoplanets.

HAHA it is nice to hear Astronomers asking each other if they are frequentists. We (i.e., Statisticians) apparently have a lot in common with Astronomers.

Wonderful. Bruce’s “neither a comment nor a question” made me snort latte up my nose.

Oh my god. “I love IDL” / “Have you tried Bayesian inference ?”. This is so me.
