Differential Geometry and Soft-Serve Ice Cream
On this ultimate Way Back Wednesday (#wbw), I'll go back 20 years rather than 30. Dig, if you will, the picture*: A sophomore (second-year students, for the locals) in his differential geometry lecture, assiduously taking notes with his right hand while consuming his (stage 1, hopefully) soft-serve ice cream with cone in the other --- the very paradigm of sophistication. :) * I don't have actual photographic evidence, even though a scene like this occurred numerous times during my undergraduacy and several times as a PhD student.
