DID YOU KNOW? Some languages do not effectively distinguish between blue and green.
By now I think there should be a category called “e-mails that Sam has received from Hillel, who still mistakenly think he is Jewish.” But there’s not, so this will go in Miscellaneous.

Subject: pi, Pi, pie. TONIGHT.
Like Pi? or “Pi”? How about Pie?
TONIGHT, 7:30pm at the Hillel Center in w11.
Join MIT Hillel for an evening packed to the brim with pi. We’ll view the movie “Pi”, while simultaneously enjoying a dinner of pizza pies. To top the evening off we’ll have a Pi competition; the person who knows the most digits of Pi will be rewarded with a Pie!
Come for the pie, stay for the pi.
Only at MIT Hillel.
Unfortunately, I missed it because I was running 3 miles on a treadmill in the Burton-Conner cardio room. Normally this is the worst thing in all recorded history (in fact, on my running log, I have “FREAKING BC TREADMILL” written for the last time I used it) but, thanks in part to the Undergraduate Association, MIT now gets Comedy Central! Do you know what that means? I can watch The Colbert Report, just like a real college student! And so I did on the really old cardio room TV, nearly falling off the treadmll as I squinted to read “The Word” without my glasses.
Also, I don’t know if it can possibly be a coincidence, but Comedy Central is channel 52 on both MIT Cable and my very own cable back in Harrisburg. What channel is it on YOUR cable?
Sorry if you don’t have cable. Or feet.
Last night I dreamed that Al Gore committed suicide by being burned alive by a dragon in Vietnam or some other Southeast Asian country (there were seven dragons in total; I think this one was the most powerful). I read about the suicide on his Wikipedia article and then saw video footage of it on CNN. I wonder what that means.
I wonder if it has to do with the fact that I’ve been taking 10.391: Sustainable Energy eight hours a day for the past two weeks?
