Lollygagging


The Spring Break enters its 6th day, with 3 to go until the Gates of Academe re-open. I’ll confess to being ready to begin anew the assault on higher education. I’ve read some fiction, cleaned up my school files, watched some late night television, been to the gym a time or two, and generally lollygagged around the manse. Frankly, I miss the slight edge of tension that comes from knowing that certain tasks have to be accomplished in a timely manner; texts read, notes reviewed, study notes readied for the tests coming soon, and so forth. This idleness scene is for the young. I got things to do……….

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
