Observations on graduation

Graduation is very very boring. Today was hooding for PhDs, tomorrow is the official commencement exercises for everyone. Today flushed 3 hours down the toilet, tomorrow will be 6.

At MIT you aren't allowed to bring your baby on stage, if you have a baby. Perhaps they are confused that a terrorist will impersonate you and bring an explosive laden fake baby on stage.

The doctoral hood is very silly. I'll try to get some pictures up later to illustrate this. It has a pouch in it for holding food, beverages, and books.

My theory is that the doctoral robes exist so that professors can walk around looking like pimps, Eastern European royalty, and/or Monty Python characters.

I wanna see the hood!

To be clear, I will be fully clothed. I'm not posting any pictures of me wearing the hood and nothing else.

Also, the professors exited to the music from the opening of Monty Python's Flying Circus. No joke.

I so dare you to go commando under your robe. Just wear socks and shoes and a fake top and tie.
