You need heterotic strings to ''tie the knot," right?

Hey Everyone

With my forthcoming move to graduate school next month, I never really thought that I would be bringing someone with me. Yup, my fiancee will be joining me in the humid home of Dr. Pepper: Waco, Texas. So, that's what's new in my life: Melissa. She's from Indiana, served a mission in Houston (Spanish-speaking) and has a huge passion for music and for helping people. Here's a picture to satisfy your curiosity:
We haven't set a date yet but I will be asking for your addresses soon!


  1. Jared, this is great news!

    I don't know about heterotic strings but obviously you exhibit confinement. Once you(quark) try to eave BYU(proton) you immediately combine with a partner so that can never be seen single(lone quark). So, you and your fiancé obviously form a singlet for some gauge group G.

    Or maybe you are just that "Finite Simple Group (of Order Two)" I posted about earlier.

    Or maybe it does have something with open strings ending on D-Branes or something like that, but I better quit before I get in trouble.

    Congratulations again!

  2. Congratulations Jared!

    On the theme of the post, I would say that what we are seeing here is a modification of your mean flow (to Waco) that leads to a transition from purely fluctuating (high l) fields to a strong dipole (l = 1) state. Fortunately for you, l = 1 fields can produce dynamo action, so be ready for some magnetic activity.

    Or perhaps Waco's lower lattitude is causing an increase in the Coriolis force you experience, which can result in changes to your angular momentum transport and thermal wind balance. Without some kind of external driving, you may even have ended up confined to Taylor-Proudman columns, and we wouldn't want that, now would we?

    Congratulations on heading to Baylor and for the important stuff too!

  3. Hey Jared, Congratulations! Unlike the others, I'm not going to spout off about what gauge group you belong to, I'll just say you'd better collapse the uncertainty in that wedding date so that we can observe an invitation in the mail. Congratulations again.

  4. My wife looked over the comments and added her own comment of "you're a bunch of nerds! I like it." ("I never said that!" she adds and my dad now says (to my wife) "You should have realized that when you got to know this guy, you were being introduced to the center of Nerdville of the United States")

    I can't help but laugh at the comments, partly because they are funny but because I know why they are funny and actually understand them (My mom says, "Are they writing English?", reading the comments)

    Yes, well, congratulations Jared! Right now I am in Philadelphia on my way to North Carolina, so I'll get you my address as soon as I have one.
