This one hits close to home. My wife grew up in Houghton. She is still in shock about all of the devastation up there.

Hell yeah man. Saw them on R40 at the Palace. I thought Geddy's vocals were fine, but that's the only time I've ever seen them live (being 28 I'm just glad I got the chance).

+1 for the ambassador. My wife used to work there as a teenager.

I can relate to the lecturer's salary story. Look for me if you are taking chem 215 this spring semester!

It’s totally true. I read an article about how some bdubs restaurants even have recliner chairs for the men who just had the surgery to recover in while watching bball and eating wings.

My advisor would get very emotional when discussing the futility of the Lions organization.

I vividly remember the conversation I had the day after the draft with my PhD advisor at U of M. It went something like, "So we picked an athletic tight end with questionable hands who doesn't really block all that well? I thought we already had one of those!! (Pettigrew)".

03/04/2018 - 3:18pm Love everything I’ve heard

Love everything I’ve heard about Austin. Not gonna read the article because I don’t feel like crying. Funny how having a kid makes it way more likely for you to cry at stuff (at least that’s my experience over the past year).

I suppose some people may enjoy the adrenaline rush from showing up 10 minutes late to an exam, just like some people love horror movies.

02/20/2018 - 9:57am I’m not surprised by that. Us

I’m not surprised by that. Us grad students that first went somewhere with classes that actually started when they were supposed to, and still had 50 minute long classes so you had that built in 10 minutes to walk to your next class, can’t help but think ‘why would you take something everybody else already does and make it unnecessarily confusing?’

02/20/2018 - 9:32am It was super dumb for all the

It was super dumb for all the reasons listed in the article. As a grad student I would see a flier for a seminar or an event and wonder ‘now does that start on normal, sane person time or does it start on Michigan time?’ Sometimes it would be one and sometimes it would be the other. Also, numerous times as a GSI I would have students ask me if something started I ‘michigan Time’ or not, like a 6:30 exam in the evening or something, and I would have to respond with ‘I have no idea’, because sometimes it would depend on the professor. Literally the only thing it accomplished was confusing people.

02/19/2018 - 9:58pm This argument has never, ever

This argument has never, ever made sense. The class will end ten minutes before the hour now, giving the same ten minutes to walk the next class that exists every where else that doesn't use "Michigan time". I didn't do my undergrad here, and when I came here for grad school everybody was like "Oh, things don't actually start when they say they do, they start on 'Michigan time'". And I thought, "That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".

02/16/2018 - 2:46pm Schrodinger’s RPO. Exactly!

Schrodinger’s RPO. Exactly! Before the snap there exists an equal possibility of a run or a pass, therefore each play is both a run AND a pass! And every play a new universe is created where the opposite play was run. The the football RPO multiverse theory. Now that’s some ‘smart football’!

02/08/2018 - 9:37pm Snow Day

I was a grad student working on my chemistry PhD during the year the snow day happened. I took the bus in to town and walked to the chemistry building pretending I was a Nord in Skyrim. Got to lab to get some work done and found out that classes had been cancelled. Didn't matter to us graduate students, we had work to do. I think that somewhere around 5 out of the 7 members of the lab were there working that day.

I have read Kurt warner’s book and I think any man would be lucky to have a wife as supportive and loyal as his was when they were poor and struggling. Yes I get it was a joke, but still.

But then again maybe it didn't get counted in the poll because even though it's way overrated it's really really slow. (yes obviously I realize that Zingerman's isn't actually "fast food").

I was really hoping my listing of Zingerman's as the most overrated fast food place would get a shout-out.

Probably. In my section we are all graduate students or former graduate students (I was 15 when that album came out), so we really carried it home.

While I think that RUSH is probably the greatest band of all time, I'll always understand when someone says they can't get past Geddy's voice. It makes me sad though, that so many people are missing out on such an amazing collection of talent.
