Sweet. It isn't too late for me to enroll and get me a sweet Penn'15 shirt. Now what to take?

Pick all of the courses with 'sex' in the title. Heh.

EDIT: Or feminist studies.

@graphitepen
And that kind of failure of logic leads to the other truism gem, "an ounce of prevention is equal to a pound of cure" (or whatever the actual wording is). It baffles me that corporations can say "Spend X amount now to avoid a mess or spend 100 times that amount after the mess happens."

I guess it's just the "special" accounting that guesstimates the percentage of that cure cost that they may have to pay. "Recall the faulty part in those trucks and eat the costs, or hope that not too many people get hurt/killed so we don't have to pay out as much as the recall?" When will they realize that avoiding the negative publicity is well worth the recall costs?

Yeah! Who are they to tell us that fencing off the cliff will be cheaper than keeping the valley equipped with ambulances?
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon
about to eat your face.
