SOLUTION TO THE PUZZLE

The correct answer is 72.  Oh God, you are going to kill me.  Several New Yorkers got it right.  This is actually an old high school nerd joke.  They are the stops on the Northbound IRT subway line in Manhattan.  Congratulations to Gerald Dworkin, Andrew Blais, JCE, and M.  Maybe I should stick to commenting on the passing scene or writing lengthy tutorials.  My profound apologies to anyone who spent more than thirty seconds on it.

The really interesting question is this: Why shouldn't we consider Google a part of our brains, and treat its information as something we know? Lord knows, I can retrieve information from Google faster than I can retrieve it from my brain!

I used to play a lot of baseball. In fact, I was a pitcher and had offers to sign. My problem was this: because I had an over powering fastball, I never really learned to "pitch." What I love about this blog is that you, Professor, are always pitching...as in a change of pace here and there, not to mention your various curves...and then, of course, there is the challenge: a 100 mph fast ball right down the middle. Go ahead kid, try and hit it!!
