Dass ein Ende mit mir haben muss by Sam M. '07

...und mein Leben ein Ziel hat.

May 8, 2006

DID YOU KNOW? Brahms started writing his Requiem when he was 23 years old.

The semester is winding down, like someone’s demented yo-yo. According to academic regulations, classes that have final exams aren’t allowed to schedule any assignments due after this Friday. So, all remaining assignments for most of my classes are due this week. That means that while the weather has been clear and 65 outside, for me it’s just gonna be overcast with a chance of you’re not going to get a blog entry this week. I want to complain, but, hey, it’s pretty much the same for ninety percent of MIT students.

So, in case I get a little verklempt, figuratively, with the p-sets this week, you all should just talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic.

The peanut is neither a pea nor a nut.

    Rhode Island is neither a road, nor an island. Discuss. (It was like buttah.)

    …and it’s surprising how many people actually believe it is an island.

    Wait a minute… Rhode Island isn’t an island? When did this happen?!?

    Kidding- really.

    Yeah, I get wierd things about Michigan, too. I lived in Ohio for a while and there were some kids that actually thought it was part of Canada or something… go figure.

    Weird. Not wierd.

    at least most people have heard of Rhode Island and Michigan…suprisingly few USians have discovered that Guatemala is an actual country…

    Great Britain has an infinitely long coastline. It must be true, my calc teacher said it while explaining what dx means. Makes sense, sort of.

    Huh… I guess I never really noticed the “Island” part of Rhode Island.

    Btw, Great Britain is a collection of islands. smile

    But what is a coastline? If you keep zooming in and in and in… the concept becomes meaningless… one cannot tell the sea from the shore…

    Now that I got from and 8th grade fractal video smile
