Ask Louis Slotin (June 25, 2012)

Welcome to a new recurring feature, Ask Louis Slotin, your exclusive opportunity to ask a question of the famous Manhattan Project scientist who died in a criticality accident, as semi-accurately dramatized by John Cusack in the hit movie, Fat Man and Little Boy.

Dear Louis: I am having trouble with seeing replies on the Kinja interface, can you help?

Louis:  Arrrgggghhhh!!  The radiation!!!  It feels like pins and needles over my whole body!!!!!

Dear Louis: Is there any alternate view option that allows us to quickly skim the Kinja comments?

Louis:  [vomits blood]

Dear Louis: Do you think the new interface will gain quick acceptance, like the last major redesign did?

Louis: Oh Jesus, two of my fingers just fell right off my hand.  My fingers... MY FINGERS!!!
