If you don’t think space is the tightest shit then you’re wrong

Anonymous said: Is 18.100B particularly more difficult than 18.100A ? How about the grades ?
Yes, the B version is substantially more difficult than A - usually because of the quality of professors, but also because the content goes by faster, and into more depth, than A. I’m not sure about grading or testing differences, but I would suppose they’re not terribly different.
“Insanity is sometimes defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. What’s it called if you succeed?”
“The fact that an adequate philosophical presentation [of quantum mechanics] has been so long delayed is no doubt caused by the fact that Niels Bohr brainwashed a whole generation of theorists into thinking that the job was done fifty years ago.”
Sometimes, this place throws you a bone.
Looks like I’ll be studying dark matter here over the summer!
Imagine if your follower count turned into money
“As an analogy, suppose Bob is curious to determine whether Alice could join him for dinner at a nice restaurant on the beach. He would likely just phone her and politely ask, “Sweet Alice, are you available for a lovely oceanside dinner?”, as opposed to barging into her apartment, probing through all of her belongings in search of her calendar, and demanding that she join him if she is available. This latter infraction would likely disturb her so much that she would never speak to him again (and what would become of quantum Shannon theory without these two communicating!).”

Right now, not nearly enough.

MIT is more than my home: it’s a way of life. MIT is being crushed more often than not, but still waking up the next day to do your very best - and feeling like a champion with an average score on a test. MIT is pushing for 10 hours to finish a ridiculous problem set, and getting three hours of sleep so that you don’t miss that awesome lecture the next morning. On an at least weekly basis, I double-take at the entrance at 77 Mass. Ave, and wonder how I managed to end up in such an astounding place.
To any prospective students in the newly admitted Class of 2018: Congratulations, you’re going to love it here.
