Today marks the two-week stretch before Thanksgiving Break! 14 more days until we are released from the binds of syllabus deadlines and midterms. While that time frame may seem a tad daunting, keep in mind that 14 is a actually a most spectacular number. Historically speaking, this number has been associated with tons of random fun. In 1914, a feminist used a meat chopper to destroy a famous painting, Mother's Day became an official national holiday, and Henry Ford sold over 200,000 automobiles. As for the future, in 2024, there will be a total solar eclipse, Mars One hopes to establish the first human settlement on Mars, and the Earth's population is expected to reach eight billion. Therefore, throughout the next 14 days, Duncan Hall is pulling out all the stops to make sure that we all have some historically good times.
