Friday Varia and Quick Hits

Some random quick hits at the end of a long semester:

“Historian Elwyn B. Robinson wrote history of North Dakota, he said the cold weather challenges us and makes us more industrious… but when it gets this cold and you’re out in it, you’re like hey maybe we don’t need it this extreme.”

  • An interesting and “edgy” piece over at Tenured Radical called “So you want to be a blogger: a few thoughts on what a blog is not“.  Nothing motivates folks to engage a new medium than a blunt statement of what they won’t be able to do.  I think it is related to the Matt Foley school of motivational speaking: “Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you’re not gonna amount to Jack Squat!!” You’re gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese, and living in a van down by the river!”  Ambition is always fueled by a studied detachment from reality.
  • Finally, don’t make plans for tonight.  Settle into your favorite chair and watch my RICHMOND SPIDERS play for the National Championship in ESPN2.  They’ll need all the help they can get, but they’ve made it this far.  Let’s go SPIDERS!

Have a good weekend!
