My good friend and dorm-neighbor, Ethan, enlisted me to help with filming this thing last spring. It was an intro for an upcoming skate video, but it ended up not making it in due to time-constraints. But, people should still be able to see it!
A really nice explanation of Colin’s Theorem from my novel An Abundance of Katherines. The theorem really works (not because of anything I did but because it was created by noted mathematician and state representative Daniel Biss), and it’s surprisingly accurate, although of course imperfect.
One side note: The formula completely fails if you make the Dumper/Dumpee differential zero, which was a joke that Daniel and I put into the formula, our thought being that if you think hard enough, the dumper/dumpee differential is NEVER zero.
This is what I felt like at WWU during (the) Election Week(s). People’s faces and empty promises duct taped all over campus, and the maintenance crews painted over one of the most beautiful stencils on campus—a flower.
Class of 2011, most indebted in history

“Students would have to work 47 hours per week, year-round, at Washington state minimum wage to pay for Western’s cost of attendance for three quarters,” said Iris Maute-Gibson, Associated Students legislative liaison. “In 1988, students would only have had to work 27 hours per week at their minimum wage to afford school.”
In 1968, students would have only needed to work seven hours per week, she said.

Hopefully Wohlfeil quoted Maute-Gibson correctly, there seems to be a lot of Corrections run in the paper as of late.
