When the girls in college began wearing them one professor in a class I was taking decided that student discussion was best served if the seating in the room was in a circle. The first day it was instituted, the young men in the class (yours truly included) rushed to get to class early and took up all the chairs on one side of the circle. The young ladies who straggled in later were forced to sit on the other side. The next time the class met, the chairs were lined up in the traditional rows. True story. Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
Mike Parsons on a 100ft wave
The first time I saw the footage I was blown away. The aerial shot keeps pulling back and keeps pulling back and keeps pulling back... but the bottom of the wave just never seems to come. And he manages to ride it all the way out of the spray. The Cortes Bank. Insanity.
Ebert felt they belonged in the Smithsonian.
How modest of him.
