It's not so much just that the Asians are good at math, it's that they mercilessly cram for these tests. Having an exceptional test score is pretty much their only shot at getting into a good US school, because nobody trusts their grades to mean anything.I got a 99th percentile verbal and ~70th on the quant for the GRE. Very unusual distribution for a physical scientist, had a couple potential advisers comment on it. The GRE verbal was pretty brutal, way more than the...
Your undergrad institution is also a pretty good class filter for employers. If you go to a top school, they can more easily assume you're the "right kind of people."
I've had that "oh crap a piece of my tooth just fell out" thing happen twice. Both times it's been an old filling that came loose (the same one both times, actually). I just keep forgetting about it.

All the stuff last year, then Gurley (and still Marshall) this year?
I paid ~$101 for the van Winkle rye this week, but I had to go through the county lottery to get a chance to buy it. They were selling the 23 for $250, the 20 for $150, and the 15 for $80. I hate to think about how many lottery winners went right back out on the secondary market. It's damn tempting though.
