A Riddle Resolved

One of the great mysteries of grad student life has involved M. D. Anderson's new wayfinding system, which is landmark-based. There is one region called "The Aquarium" which, curiously enough, has neither water nor fish.

This has been the subject of much speculation (i.e. ridicule) amongst us dwellers in the basement.

But today, taking a brief walk after lunch, I had an epiphany.

The Aquarium is a large, open area with glass walls. The people in the lobby are the fish, metaphorically speaking.

Tis sick, twisted, and quite possibly correct.

Funny; when I was still at Rice, we referred to the shared equipment room as "The Fish Tank" on account of its glass walls.

It's always fun to realize you're just another fish in the barrel.
