    Sorry if I went a bit overboard, we got geek cred to defend on the interwebnets.

  4. […] and other comically misleading remarks written due to my poor sense of editorial judgement, such as this post last week in which I use sarcasm to mischaracterize an article written for .  We hope students […]
