There's a sushi place in the basement of this building. Between 3:30 and 4, I think they close at 4, they have two-for-one sushi dinners. I think I may start eating breakfast, coming to work, and then holding out until 3:30 for lunch, eating two sushis, and then being fine for the rest of the day. It's not great sushi, but it's not bad.

Archimedes possessed so high a spirit, so profound a soul, and such treasures of scientific knowledge, that though these inventions had now obtained him the renown of more than human sagacity, he yet would not deign to leave behind him any commentary or writing on such subjects; but, repudiating as sordid and ignoble the whole trade of engineering, and every sort of art that lends itself to mere use and profit, he placed his whole affection and ambition in those purer speculations where there can be no reference to the vulgar needs of life; studies, the superiority of which to all others is unquestioned, and in which the only doubt can be whether the beauty and grandeur of the subjects examined, of the precision and cogency of the methods and means of proof, most deserve our admiration.
