It's Too Easy to Make a Joke about This

The other day on NPR there was a story about how college students are not that much better at adding than rhesus monkeys. (OK, I exaggerate for effect.)

Unrelated: I may be computerless (and, as a result scrabu-less) in the near future. My MacBook needs to go in to the shop AGAIN. She randomly turns herself off when running on battery. Don't suggest that she has merely run out of batteries. This happens with about 30% to 50% charge remaining, and running out of batteries should cause the computer to sleep, not shut down.

Tangent on the tangent: When my computer is back up and running, you should play scrabulous with me. Feed my addiction.
