At MIT the people who wear capes waste a lot of time at Senior House and take a long time to graduate.

This is a true statement. But, I'll also add that the cape wearing, "Sport Death" Senior Hausers were awesome people who have gone on to do amazing things. They also threw the best parties.

Sadly (and perhaps appropriately), MIT is trying to get rid of the Senior House culture.

Made my momma real proud. She still has it framed in the living room, even though I didn't even end up attending MIT.

My mother thought I could do better than some technical institute. It was a couple months before one of her friends told her that MIT was a pretty good school.

Just before Christmas. Saved me the effort and expense of applying to CalTech and Cornell and Rice.

Man, it is crazy to see people I went to school with now gray-haired and becoming serious grease.

Is 3:06. You'd think they could find 8 seconds of filler …

Marketing department P.H.D. program - film the commercial on one of the ten days of the school year it's pleasant enough to walk around campus wearing a tank top.

I learned something from this video: some people are opposed to celebrating pi, and choose instead to celebrate Tau, which is 2 x pi, hence the announcement at 6.28pm on 3/14.
