A day in the life of TT.

Just in case you've ever wondered what a day in the working life of this transient theorist might entail,  here's a choice snippet from a paper I'm trying to digest  (note, this really is English, I promise, no fooling):

"The impact function I maps the unit cube into the L-dimensional parallelepiped spanned by the impact niche vectors Ci while the sensitivity function S maps the unit cube into a parallelepiped spanned by the sensitivity niche vectors Si."

I remain undecided as to whether it's more frightening that such a sentence exists, or that I think I've mostly figured out what it means.  And it's sweeeeeet!!!
