"We were walking on Shattuck, and we heard, 'I know what it's like to be poor, I just lost 15 million,' ...and it was this little old lady with a beehive."
--A guy at Thalassa billiards and bar
Heh, these days you hear that a lot more from twenty-something dot-com guys than from little old ladies.

"I'm going to be living in Unit 4, also known as a cardboard box on Telegraph."
"I take it you didn't get housing?"

"Yeah, maybe it'll be better in upper-division."
--Two guys in my computer science class

Now admittedly, I would have been a little unsettled too, but if you think about it, what a compliment-- how often do you sit next to someone on the subway and think "Wow, that person really smells... GOOD?"
