Drawing a blank

You and a handful of others get to meet Arthur Sulzberger, Jr, chairman and publisher of the New York Times for an informal conversation lasting about an hour. What do you ask/talk about?

(no subject)

I guess you know you're a student when you show up to the computer lab 2 hours before the lab starts, in order to work on the assignment due in that lab, and 5 of the 6 computers in your corner contain labmates also working on that assignment, and another labmate comes up to ask a question about it, and someone else in the same class but a different lab realizes what you're working on and starts asking questions, too.

Sadly, I think this is an argument in favor of procrastination, since this wouldn't have been nearly as fun if I'd done the assignment early.
