I had mentioned this during the last round of finals (the first I’d ever blogged though, per my pre-internet old fart-ness, and, yes, I used to hand write my exams) but thought I'd mention it again. During my first college finals my friend Gabriel and I decided to grow out our facial hair for luck. Ever since then I’ve followed this custom. I pick something on my face to stop shaving on the last day of class and then just let it go till the last exam. I’ve done the moustache, the van dyke, the full beard, the goat. This time around it’s the goat, which, yes, is red. Damn Vikings. Anyway, I highly recommend this. You may not fully understand just how much the latent nondelegation doctrine influences the holding in Benzene and its importance (?) given American Trucking, but you’ll feel much smarter stroking your facial hair as you consider it.
