Riddle For You
Possessed by the poor,
Needed by the rich,
And fatal if eaten?
I got the answer. Then he told me that most kindergarteners could answer the question, but most Stanford students couldn't. So think dumb. The answer is in the comments. (Honor system).

I play idiot rather well, don't you think?
It was that era. I think the traces of it still linger when I see things like the AUT boycott.
I was afraid it was contagious. I went to the most technical school I could find that allowed crossing over between the liberal arts and the technical/scientific faculties. None of that either/or stuff for me. I wanted a true education. Also, there were extremely hunky guys in the engineering library.
I can fix my own car!
