Tricks of the Trade?

With the start of Maymester (tomorrow), it is time to shift the mental gears of this old jalopy. Idling along in neutral for the past ten days, it’s into first gear today and then into the higher gears as of tomorrow morning. This race (like all the others) will go, not to the fastest but to the surest, and so it behooves this student to be ready, rested, and raring to go.

This mental tip seems like a good idea. And for all those pups in class who will think the old man is losing his mind and desperately looking for a escape route, well, what they don’t know won’t hurt them. For sure.

“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
