From red_frog:

  1. If someone were to try to cheer you up, should they cheer your body or your mind? Umm... thingy? (I don't understand the question.)
  2. Name something you're afraid of doing that you think you should make yourself do. Go back to campus to sort out the whole thesis mess.
  3. It's a hot day and you've entered your Magic Kitchen [TM] to find a drink. You can have anything you want. What do you pick? Boon Framboise '86. Mmm, yum. I have a case laid away for major special occasions.
  4. What is your dream job? NASA Astronaut. Or chair of the Computer Science department at Deerfield. (A classmate is chair of the math department.)
  5. What is a moral/ethical stance that you approve of but find too restricting to live by? Vegetarianism. Mmm, yummy wings....

Clarifying #1
Basically, this is the difference between a silly movie to cheer you up (mind) or a night of wild sex (body). Insert values for "silly movie" and "night of wild sex" as appropriate.

Forgive me if this still isn't clear. I've been reading about obfuscators since early this morning and phrases like, "all practical heap analysis algorithms are necessarily imprecise..." are echoing in my brain. I need a nap.

Ah! Mind, then, definitely -- my libido is far too low for otherwise.

Re: Clarifying #1
yes, but body could also include making you a lovely eclair, or bringing over a lottle of de troch's. and mind could involve tinkertoys. ;)

Re: Clarifying #1
Precisely. It's a matter of which one likes being distracted more.

I'm personally more of a body type. If I'm depressed and in need of cheering, I want to turn my mind OFF.

What? Who? When did Gordeon McLeod resign?
Jun. 11th, 2003 03:07 am (UTC)
I think he retired a little while ago. Sean Keller '86 is the current chair, AFAIK.

Oh, and I suppose I'll insert my five here...

1) Was there anything positive in a schlocky show like "Suddenly Susan", what with the faded Brat Pack stars, overly annoying "geek" characters, and that guy with the outrageous accent?

2) If you could live anywhere and tele-commute to your dream job, where would you set-up house, and why?

3) A nice New York red, or a mass-produced California Merlot? Discuss.

4) Fried clam strips...Friendly's or HoJo's? Discuss.

5) If you had to choose between true racial equality or true gender equality in the US, which would you choose, and why?
