slim to none, and Slim just left town."
I am not going to be the most productive scientist at my company tomorrow. Lifelong St. Louis fan! #cardinals #worldseriesIt reminds me of a terrible and amusing memory: election night 2000. I happen to have an inorganic chemistry exam at 8 am the next morning, so I decide to stay up and study with the TV on in the background -- not a good idea, I know. As Dan Rather was getting more and more incoherent ("If a frog had side pockets, he'd carry a hand gun."), I was as well. While I'm a big, big proponent of a good night's sleep, I found myself deciding to stay awake just long enough to see who the winner was...
Of course, there wasn't a winner. I bombed the test something fierce (possibly the worst grade I ever got in graduate school), but I have a story to tell my grandkids.
Readers, did you ever stay up in grad school? I'll bet you wish you'd had slept.
