It's a shame the way higher Ed is set up. The teaching is secondary to the research, so half the time you end up with brilliant people who can't teach to save their life, or people who are only...

Yep. Sounds like he had a pretty good plan, you just don't rob banks with a custom yellow hot rod. You use a generic every car.

It's always interesting when science finds an explanation for things that people always kind of "knew" or at least "felt" was true.

Yeah , I'm in the Philly exurbs but still one of the worst places in the country here. I'm sure you're just as bad. I'd love to live somewhere actually dark eventually.
