Institute Wisdom Watch by The Tech editorial boardUA — Spring Weekend: Let them eat Cake! UA gets tastier for doing its job: throwing a giant party with giant appeal. That’s almost the equivalent of what a small and efficient government is supposed to do.
The Weather: “It was 30, it was 60, it was 90, then it was 12, on the last day there was thunder, there was lightning, and there was snow … together! … That’s fucked up. They don’t even write about that weather … in the Bible.” — Lewis Black
Bode Miller: America may never dominate the Winter Olympics, but at least we can act like Americans while trying.
Chancellor Clay: For saying MIT may have to do “odd and uncomfortable,” i.e. highly questionable, things about race.
Ringcomm: A classic, simple design, and very little complaint. But simple to the extreme — no symbol for lack of symbols.
Indian place in Lobdell: Have you tried the new Indian place? You should. Lobdell no longer “Lob-hell.”
Boston Police: Having solved all gun crimes in the city, the BPD are now shocked to discover that undergraduates get drunk.
MIT Theater Community: Props for putting together a large number of really good productions in the last few weeks — Urinetown (MTG), The Old Law (Dramashop), Vagina Monologues.
Goosebeary’s fire: Truly sad. We miss our General Gau’s Chicken.
Dunkin’ Donuts comes to Student Center: Freshmen 15 becomes Freshmen 25, and we love it.
Hacking Community: No good hacks, has literally fallen on its face.
A continued thumbs up for: Anna’s Taqueria, which we have on good opinion is better and cheaper than the burrito place at Arizona State.
And a continued thumbs down for: Saferide (“we’ll be there in five minutes”), MIT Cable (for not having anything) and La Verde’s (for charging too much for everything).
