Stanford is for geeks!

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)
