It does. I notice that I've found this post a bit too late... did any of you submit to this?

Thanks for pointing me in that direction. Good stuff.

I agree, it does seem like a bit of displacement of responsibility. That said, I think there is some truth to the idea that, if your teachers/mentors look successful, you will also try to look successful in emulating them. There is no doubt that professors can become people that students "look up to" and in doing this, they are likely to emulate them not just in their intellectual pursuits but also in their personal habits. So yes, they may have an impact on how you look and therefore, how you feel and perform. Valid point.

I agree, I think the author is reaching here. Like cgod, I have had teachers that were fantastic and were dressed rather slovenly. Half the time my head is wrapped around the material or my eyes are focused on anything but the teacher. The board, the screen, my notes... not the profs clothes.

Granted, 2011 was a great year. But... what do you think of 2012? The Avengers was pretty damned good. Could 2012 be an even better year than 2011?
    One of McDonald’s most divisive products, the McRib, made its return last week. For three decades, the sandwich has come in and out of existence, popping up in certain regional markets for short promotions, then retreating underground to its porky lair
If nothing else, it was worth reading this piece just to conjure the image of a "porky lair".

I must admit, I do like a good McRib sandwich sans onions. Great read, thanks.

I have a feeling that being around Vi would be time well spent. Have you listened to any of her music? It's pretty cool.

It's a great idea. I think it would be even more interesting with a style of music that incorporates lyric.
We'll call them something else and then get away with creating more:

In 2010 the US and Russian governments signed a treaty to reduce their inventory of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) over a seven year period (to 2017) to 1550 units each
