Yet another reason to avoid big meetings

Big meetings really do suck. I am on the bus from my hotel to the conference center where the ASM meeting is being held.  I knew I should have taken the subway.  But I took the charter bus.  And it seems to be more of a thing for tourists than scientists on the way to a conference.  On the bus they are playing tvs at a volume akin to the last rock concert I went to. No chance to talk to anyone.  No chance to think. No chance to relax.  Ick.

  1. I was in Boston last week and got stranded because they shut down the T due to an electrical fire at one of the stations. It took me 3 hours get where I need to go.
