Just now, while writing my last post (on public transit, which now seems so.... flat) and listening to the radio, I just heard the two most interesting pieces of news that I've heard in ages.
A Harvard researcher has published academic research findings on what makes a hipster a hipster. What seems especially relevant to me is that he referenced The Decemberists in his paper, and so did I in the 12:45 class last Wednesday!
Clearly, this means that you're getting a Harvard-quality education right here at MSU.
New Zealand is pushing for sheep shearing to be included as an Olympic sport (summer, naturally). I think MSU students (yay Extension!) would be at a distinct advantage for at least making the U.S. team, if it becomes a reality.
Clearly, this means that some people -- maybe you? -- are getting Olympic-quality athletic training right here at MSU.
