Energy Pod

I’ve seen people pioneering the fractional ownership of that thing. Remember: it’s not just a piece of furniture but an “experience”, a “ride” you can sell, like how you sell Disney rides.

The stuff costs about $8,000 all included, then you can sell it at $5 – 7 an hour (a zipcar sells at $8 – 16 an hour plus tax). You tell people: take a nap starting from $2.5, with exam discounts. Trust me, people are gonna do it, and you’re there to make a profit. If you don’t believe me, fine, I’ll ask my dad to buy one tomorrow and put it in his office and then buy a charge machine beside it, see what happens.

No smoking

Monday, July 18th, 2011

College policy forbids smoking within doorways and entrances of buildings. And while the library has done a fine job of informing folks of this policy by signs posted at the front entrance, it does (and public safety does) a poor job at following through with violations to this policy. In addition, I find it rather ironic that next to the sign that says “do not smoke here” there is a cigarette butt disposal can.

Please remove these cans from the building entrance and enforce the policy.
