The Salt Mines

Still slogging away at algorithms homework, here in the salt mines* this fine Friday night. Five problems down, "only" fourteen more to go. Need to be done by Thursday, which really means by Wednesday because I have finals from 10 in the morning until 10 at night Thursday (with a 3-hour break in there). Four of the remaining fourteen are programming problems. :( But if I can keep up the pace of finishing five a day, I'll just make it.

So when are the scientists going to stop piddling around with trivial things like, say, cancer, and get to work on a cure for procrastination and easily-distractedness? Maybe they all figure they'll start working on it tomorrow...
