Some things should not be combined

1 If, hyphothetically, one is up until 8AM doing a numerical analysis homework on polynomial interpolation, one ought not listen to the "Philosophy Bites" podcast on the drive home "to stay awake". The risk here is not that one will fall asleep at the wheel, but that when one gets home, and hops in the sack, one will have dreams in which Thomas Hobbes' political philosophy involves finding Hermitian splines. Also, there was a fox in my dream.

Also, if there were all-you-can-eat buffets, where you would pay a little extra so that the waitstaff will fetch your food for you, that might be nice. "Excuse me, miss? Would you be so kind as to fetch me some terrible pizza? AND SUCCOTASH?"

It's a Reformation Day Miracle!

I was just catching up with The Office at; as I watched episode 401, I was surprised and delighted to discover that Darryl and Pam are Presbyterians. It's a Reformation Day miracle! This is, quite possibly, the most positive media portrayal of Presbyterians. (I'm pretty sure that Darryl and Pam are PCUSA, though. Apostates.)
