Yesterday Jon was mountain biking (I know, right…) and he had a pretty bad spill. He got a compression fracture in one of his vertebrae and had to go to the emergency room. He will be fine but he is in a lot of pain and will be bed ridden for a few days. I’m pretty sure he is sick of lying in bed watching TV so he would probably appreciate a call from a few of his friends. 801-916-7371
So there’s a UW philosophy professor who has published an article entitled “Can I Kill My Younger Self: Time Travel and the Retrosuicide Paradox.” I think the best part of this essay is the acknowledgements footnote, in which the author thanks his mother for “typing part of the paper.” I think that tells you all you need to know about academics, this particular topic, and compossibility.
It is recruiting season at the Wisconsin MBA program and that means I get to take prospective students out to lunch on the school’s dime.
The other week I was out to lunch with a guy named Michael Weber. When I introduced myself he told me that he already knows me and when he saw my name on his schedule he got really excited. I couldn’t place him. Then he told me that he went to Waukesha North High School and was in the same battle of the bands as ZTN. (He wasn’t in Uncle Angus. I checked.) Turns out he is a big Zero to Nothing fan though. He still has the album and he could sing lines from his favorite song “MTV”.
I decided that was pretty cool and offered to email him a bunch of the stuff we recorded in college, which naturally he thought was awesome.
