When shares a piece of movie dialogue with you from the couch: "Your resume is impressive!" "Yeah, people rag on Cornell, but it's still an Ivy, right?"

Too late to wag school, though. You’ll never get that one.

I think cram schools named after Ivies are fairly common in parts of Asia; there is no way you could chase all of them (although they are more likely to be "Harvard" than "Cornell")

I don’t think they care - it’s so pissant it has no effect on them. My beef is more that it make our system look bad for allowing it to exist.

Bike Auckland Feb 15
When asked if they'd rather teleport to work, 2/3 of those who walk or bike said "no thanks", while fully 3/4 of people who go by car yearned to escape. Tired of feeling trapped in your car, thinking of getting a bike? That's highly logical, Captain!🖖🚲

LMK wrote a book about F. And Feynman was a bit of an asshole, did behave inappropriately towards women, and was a transcendent genius. Krauss manages to emulate two of these three attributes :-)

These guys have links to straight-up neo Nazis, and their “science” is at about the same level as the people who email me on the regular with their own alternatives to relativity, so there are plenty of signs that something is wrong...

Mathematica changes its default colormap every few years, which reveals which figures have been repeatedly recycled :-)

Writing a grant. Have ripped up and rebuilt the same two paragraphs about 100 times. Sigh.

Was told to me by an office mate who was trying to explain why it was so important in his part of Lawn Guy Land; and this was admittedly before hell did actually freeze over...

You guys know the joke about the Red Sox supporter who winds up in hell? The devil can't seem to reach him; he cranks the heat, the guys smiles "Like Baasston in da summer". So he freezes him in ice, at which point he goes "The Red Sox Won the World Series" and dances for joy
