I did come to one major conclusion though—people from computer science and engineering should never be allowed to give thirty-minute speeches. Oh, the humanity!

I can see the attraction to the medieval ceremony of it all, but it just doesn’t pull on me. I wouldn’t have missing seeing my friends walk the gauntlet though!

Congratulations to Krista and Chad (well, almost).
