Overheard at UChicago

Slave Research Student: "I heard that for a scavenger hunt one year, the students had to build a nuclear reactor?"

Nobel PI, "Yep, and that student was Enrico Fermi, in 4 days he actually build a nuclear reactor next to the reg. Scavhunt helped create the first nuclear chain reaction. Unfortunately it blew up, and now all we have to commemorate it is a sculpture of a mushroom cloud and super-intelligent squirrels."
