A friend of mine (and Stanford alum) proudly sent me the following link to the Stanford Engineering Puzzle (apparently a regular feature on their web site). Despite neither going to Stanford, nor frankly having had any shot of even getting into the school should I have thought to apply, I found the puzzle rather amusing.
I think Macalester is the Stanford of the mid-west . . . or something like that.
Thanks to Chris for the link.
(ok – just spell-checked this and am humbled to let you know that Stanford is in the TypePad dictionary while Macalester is not)
