:: Wednesday, November 12, 2003 ::

Wow, in just one day of using the Google Toolbar, I have blocked over 100 pop-up ads. Crazy, isn't it? It's all those annoying news sites that want to make an extra buck by sticking advertisements everywhere.

Today, I went to my classes and took the exam in my Chinese class. It was short but long at the same time; it took me a while to complete it.

We had an interesting lab in cognitive psychology section today. We identified the tops and bottoms of the faces of five male celebrities to test face recognition. Did you know that there's a module in the brain wired specifically for face recognition? In class we watched a video of a woman who had lost that function and could no longer identify people by their faces... she couldn't even recognize her own face when looking in a mirror.

After I was finished with classes, I went back to Leverett House for dinner. It was quite nice to dine with friends.

I must say that today's Quote of the Day is one of the most amusing lines I've heard in quite some time... It's so hilarious yet tragic at the same time. Ha ha ha ha ha.

Quote of the Day: "This coat is warmer than my family."
