An Awesome Autobiography
Posted in: Miscellaneous
Last weekend I posted an entry on my birthday, sharing some things I have learned now in my advanced age. On the same day, in a very different part of the Internet - though culturally close and easily accessible via a tesseract - an 86 year old man posted his autobiography to reddit in rage comic form. I don't actually read reddit, but most of my friends do; now, 9 days later, it has filtered through the rest of the Internet back to me, and on to you. It is pretty awesome, and another piece of data (I am tracking this very closely and rigorously) supporting the conclusion that November 5th is unquestionably the best of birthdays.
What does this have to do with MIT Admissions? Nothing really. Then again, neither did 50 Things, at least strictly speaking. I just enjoyed reading about the perspective of an 86 year old veteran and videogamer on life in a rage comic. Maybe you will too. And if so, you can join me in a virtual toast to 1925gamer; may he, and Mrs. 1925gamer, live long and headshot n00bs for many years to come.
