College admin advice, from Larry Summers

"Don't give a speech speculating that women just aren't ready to be math professors." Oh wait, no, I meant this:
One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an asshole. This was the latter case.
Via. Referring to someone called the Winkelvoss twins, whom I would know about if I were interested enough in Facebook to watch a movie about it, or even have an account.
