    10 Things I Learned this Semester

    1.  Barbaro the Horse generates way more Internet traffic than my blog could possibly hope for.

    2.  If you're going to comment disparagingly about someone else's blog, it's best not to choose a computer hacker with 14 different Wikipedia personalities who lives only an hour and a half away.

    3.  Stay away from the sushi at all-you-can-eat buffets, even if those buffets are located at Caesar's Palace. Rome had botulism, too.

    4.  There are only 600 people who watch CBS TV on Sunday mornings. Colin McEnroe is one of them. Aldon Hynes may be another.

    5.  Political blogs may stir up interest and momentum for underdog senatorial candidates, but in the end it's the seasoned incumbant politicians who rise to the top. Like poop in water.

    6.  If I buy my father a pair of reading glasses for Christmas from Amazon.com, the company will instantly create a personal blog ("plog") for me linking me to wheelchair distributors, vaginal dryness products, a "Depends" support group, and Eons.

    7. Drinking an Aquafina Citris Twist beverage and a large Diet Pepsi from the soda fountain during class will cause me to pee an average of 3.7 times before bedtime.  If I had a plog, I would have already received literature from Avodart and WebMD concerning my condition.

    8.  Wikipedia is an excellent experiment in collectivism and digital Maoism. And if I ever use it as a reference in an academic paper, I will have a scarlet letter "W" sewn to my jacket and be cast from the campus like Hester Prynne.

    9.  No matter what I accomplish in my life, it will never be amount to anything until my name is linked in blue on Wikipedia.

    10. Never ever EVER blog about what I had for lunch. EVER!
