  1. Crud. I think I forgot to renew my Sigma Xi membership.

  2. I was like two months late and they sent me the relevant back issue.

  3. That’s nice. I like to read Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People AND Beat Up People who Read American Scientist on the T.

  4. I like taking the slipcovers off my trolley books — or burying the front/back covers in whatever bag I have with me — so that I don’t seem like any sort of person, pretentious or plebian.

Nurd Up!
