    I just checked the university I went to. It looks like since the 50s, tuition has basically doubled every 10 years. I graduated 20 years ago, so it’s roughly 4x what I paid. So yeah, if a boomer graduated 40 years ago at $750 a semester, that would track to $12,000 a semester now. Sounds about right.

    If the trend continues, she can bitch at my kids for being lazy in 10 years for not being able to work off a $24,000 a semester tuition by flipping burgers part time.




  • Entomology 101 - or Bugs for Thugs, as my professor called it - was the coolest elective I took in college. You could get extra credit for bringing in bugs to share with the class. I didn’t have a proper container, so I spent one class trying to contain an Emperor Scorpion in a Chinese food container and keep it from escaping. Good times.

    That’s actually what I’m playing it on! Sorry, I’m a nerd, but not enough of a nerd to distinguish between an emulator and a port. But yeah, the QoL stuff is nice. For example, you can have it respawn you where you left off rather than back at the starting area every time you continue your game.

    I haven’t seen anything for modern controls though. I might have to poke around.

    Edit: This video explains some of the good settings to try out. Free camera is mentioned near the very end. https://youtu.be/IPFb5iCMaBY
