A shot of ∆T∆ (pronounced Delta Tau Delta) in the homecoming parade: ∆T∆’s representative, Taylor Gage, was Homecoming King:
The Chargers had a victorious win over nationally-ranked no. 1 team in division II, the Grand Valley Lakers, this afternoon. The Chargers broke the Lakers’ 48 regular season game winning streak. What a wonderful homecoming! Read about the win at the Hillsdale College athletics page.
I had an interesting concept brought up to me today while I was discussing the difference between rationality and reason with Professor Lea. To try to understand the difference, we did a thought experiment about making choices. When a person makes a choice, he or she weighs the expected utility (broadly defined) of each unit, … Continue reading Day 282 – Economizing on Brain Power
This photo ran in today’s Collegian with this article. I also had a number of portraits I took for the homecoming bios, and I compiled the quick hits this week. I have a very busy weekend coming up. I have three big exams on Monday and Tuesday of next week, a paper due Wednesday (which … Continue reading Day 281 – IM Football

After much rest, NyQuil, water, and Emergen-C, I am finally feeling better. Good thing, because I have the first round of … Continue reading Day 277 – Beautiful Sky

This photo was the sports sections header in The Collegian this week.
Apparently the government decided to cast its oppressive shadow over more of America and ban flavored cigarettes. I don’t smoke, so it took me a week and a half to hear about this. This ban is garbage. I have a feeling that the FDA is just getting started with its regulations. Since a lot of … Continue reading Day 274 – Flavored Cigarette Ban
