No Word Yet On What Students Are Doing for Makeshift Sleds.

This whole article about college cafeterias eliminating trays wasn’t really that remarkable, but I really liked the way it ended:

“Dr. Spina, of the college food service association, cited another benefit: ‘preparation for the cocktail-party circuit’ by having to balance dishware and cutlery. ‘You eventually have to learn how to hold your hors d’oeuvre and cocktail in one hand while making animated conversation with the other,’ he said, ‘so it’s a life lesson.’

No word yet on what students are doing for makeshift sleds.”

Forgot to post this earlier: Computer Program to Take on “Jeopardy!”

The beer selection at Citi Field is better than it is at Yankee Stadium.

In response to the link I post yesterday, Do I have Pig Flu? (Thanks, Lauren!)

In related news, Matt made this instead of studying for law school finals: Swine Flu is an Asshole.

You think Facebook changed a lot this year?  Apparently, it has changed even more since 1902.

In honor of my upcoming trip to Iceland, I wanted to write something about the awesome film Mighty Ducks 2 and how Emilio Esteves and the gang are challenged by the awfully scary, black-clad, Team Iceland.  Taking the natural first step, I did a Google Image search of as many combinations of the words “mighty ducks,” “two” and “team iceland” eventually settling on “the mighty ducks 2 versus iceland.”  On the second page of results, I came across an image from Lauren’s blog.  Yes, my actual-real-life-not-made-up-internet-friend, Lauren.  (In fact, I think the photo was actually taken at one of my birthday parties, but I’m positive.)  Turns out, in early 2007, Lauren got some internet wanderlust and decided to blog about a “Not-At-All-Fake Five-Day Trip Around the World.” (Which, BTW, actually mentions me).  Naturally, Lauren and Kelly visited Iceland on day four and then visited Jamaica on day five, including a quick mention of the Mighty Ducks hockey team during a Cool Runnings discussion.  Needless to say, the number “2” and the words “versus” and “the” were thrown in there, making Lauren’s blog the 30th result when I searched “the mighty ducks 2 versus iceland” and the internet a very small place indeed.  On that note, I’m going to Iceland today, where I’ll hopefully find Team Iceland so I can take a picture of them and put it on the internet.

    My favorite thing to use as a sled in college was a big garbage bag. Depending if you want to go feet first like a slide or head first, you either get in like a potato sack or pop a hole in the bottom for your head. It’s way more comfortable than trying to put your knees (ouch) on a tiny tray. By the seminary on College Ave Campus was priiiiime hill-sledding for freshmen.
