Calculus, Empathy, and Single Mothers, or, Living between Heaven and Hell

  1. “The most prestigious university in the world.” Do they teach you to say that there? Is it like a mantra to make all the bull easier to swallow? Personally, I think Moscow State University is more prestigious, but that’s a matter of taste. The point is, calling something prestigious is like masturbation, it feels good but doesn’t do very much.

  2. @ Matthew Barclay:

    Isn’t prestige rather a matter of group consensus than of individual preferences? Sure, it’s not an objective measure of quality either, but it’s more a group subjectivity than an individual subjectivity.
