Just saw Chomsky lecture

Pretty f'in cool. A, his presentation about biolinguistics was fascinating, especially when the neuroscientists wanted to pick fight about stuff, and B, because I just walked across campus and saw Noam Chomsky talk for an hour and a half. There are a lot of things I don't like very much about MIT, and sometimes the drab architecture and drab student body makes you forget the good. But there are a hell of a lot of brilliant minds packed into a small space here.

So...very...jealous. Apparently, though, the linguists in my program are NOT Chomskyists, so shhh.
