One of the wonderful things about being an MIT student is witnessing all of the nerd pride and anti-Harvard sentiment. Like this beautiful piece of hackdom:
Harvard Bridge construction sign (photo by Johnathan Wang)
Apparently the photo was edited and a 4-letter word removed from the third line of the sign. I guess us MIT students aren’t just nerds, we’re also a bit witty.

I love geeks.
Actually the third line read “Erica Lucci RULES.” Geeks apparently love ericalucci.com
Are you returning to the CDC this summer? Miss you in the ATL
Atlanta Sucks! Georgia Sucks!
Just kidding of course. I might head down for a visit, but I’m not going to be at the CDC for the summer.
Must… write… thesis…
there was no third line, it just read ‘harvard sucks’. i was there… 😛

MIT DOES NOT SUCKS
how did the rivaldry between harvard and mit began?
what about intellectual property??
does mit or harvard copied some publications from each other??
I think the rivalry arises primarily from the position of both schools (right next to each other in Cambridge, MA) and the very different types of students they have. Most people I know who went or go to Harvard say that social advancement is a large part of the experience there, and there is an almost tangibly haughty intellectualism present on the campus. MIT students are almost the opposite: unfailingly practical and concerned primarily with their field and subject material as opposed to social and class-related endeavors.
Putting those two types of folks within a few blocks obviously has led to some good natured rivalry.
Let’s compare the salaries
Harvard University Salary
2008 listing, average salary $53,885, highest $272K
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Salary
1123 listing, average salary $55,769, highest $360K

Excellent, but it would be better if in future you can share more about this topic. Keep rocking. http://www.ahshavnisiti.info/electronics/successful-methods-to-achieve-better-outcomes-with-video-marketing/
Nice nice…but it takes like what 5 minutes, google and a facemask to learn how to do this AND do it. And you don’t even have to be an MIT student for it.
Get creative…get the herbicide out or whatever xD.
