Here is a conversation that I overheard on the third floor of Kingsbury Hall (which houses all of the engineering departments, as well as the mathematics departments), between two college boys playing ping pong ball:

Deep Thinker One: Do you think there is a rational explanation for why people do evil things?

Deep Thinker Two: A rational explanation? Because it's probable.

I just thought that was some food for thought. What a life it must be, to view the world rationally based on what you are studying in college. Mostly my college studies just made the world seem that much more irrational.
