"Repetition is a form of change"

This is one of the lines I've seen in people's Slashdot/Kuro5hin entries today that could just as easily be an entry in somebody's fortunes file; another is "I'm perfectly comfortable with the knowledge that my ego could shelter a small town from the rain.".

For a little fun Sunday reading: Why do the Usians hate the French so? or Guide to Eating on a Shoestring Budget. These could alternately be titled "You are more arrogant than me" and "When Geeks Meet Kitchens."

Sociolinguistics papers rock!

To finish off my domestic diversity requirement, my sociolinguistics class requires two papers - one on what language will be like in 2100 (think Dr. Strangelove meets Fallout), and the second is an examination of language within an international (sub)culture - in my case, I chose computer hackers. Go Jargon File, Go!

For combinatorics, I have two homeworks and a final paper on the number of non-attacking rook positions on an nxn chessboard. Wish me luck!
