For the U.S. Naval Academy, it’s first day of classes and my last fall semester teaching (I depart next summer). Thought I’d share one of my favorite quotes, found on my student survey:
“Men Wanted: For hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success.”

If only job adverts were so succinct…. Welcome to Thermodynamics!
