Link roundup

1. "A Chinese shipping magnate last weekend spent 250,400 euros ($328,000) for a Dutch pigeon."

2. Vanderbilt University apparently employs 67 nonteaching/nonresearch professional staff for every 100 students.

3. A look at the Weyland-Yutani soldiers from Alien 3.


  1. 67 for every 100 students at Vandy, no?

  2. The college stat quoted above has a lot to do with tuition costs skyrocketing. My own school just broke over to more full time staff than faculty, and they then did what I predicted and literally fired professors to make room for more administrative assistants.
