Ah, science conferences. Filled with useful cultural information.

This is not the most important thing that I learned at the 15th Cross-Calibration meeting for the Cluster Active Archive earlier this week, but it is the funniest.

"We're going to Nice for the next meeting? Nice is full of dog shit. And people on scooters, riding on the pavements. So you have to walk with one eye on the pavement and one eye pointing straight ahead. By the end of the week, you have eyestrain. Or you smell of dog shit. Or you're in hospital because you've been run down by some jerk on a scooter."
