Now That’s What I’m Talking About

It seems my school’s career office provides free access (courtesy of UBS) to Vault, an amazingly useful (and expensive) resource for information on industries, companies and occupations.  Thanks, Career Services and UBS!

  2. I’m more concerned about the fact that no one’s looking than I am about the Swiss.

  15. I was all set to make a snarky comment about how UBS was perpetuating class structures by letting the elite students of Teo U use Vault free, but it seems that the less elite students of Weiner U also get free access. Stupid facts.

  16. Hey, anyone here ever play the card game Illuminati? (Non-standard deck.) One of the groups that you could guide to world domination by using them to secretly control other groups, which in turn secretly controlled other groups, was the Gnomes of Zurich. Which I believe is pretty much UBS.

    I think about that game often, when I think about how the Moonies (“Peaceful, Fanatic”) really are controlling everything. I think in the game they didn’t have much power. The game designers got that wrong… OR WERE THEY COVERING SOMETHING UP?

    Is nothing sacred? Nothing?

  17. Is Illuminati like Magic? Senior year in college I lived across from an expert Magic player who went to tournaments ‘n’ such and I totally chagrined that fucker when I beat him the first game we played after he taught me how. (Woot! New transitive verb!)

  18. It seems that there’s a trading-card version, but the original version didn’t have trading cards — play money and dice, I think.

  19. The version of Illuminati I played as an undergrad was like Magic with slightly different rules on bringing out cards. No play money or dice.

  20. Offa my lawn! Off, I say!
