Body language

Hello, stranger!

I learned to sail this weekend. It was pretty cool! MIT has free sailing lessons for all students (and faculty, and, I believe, anyone with a 6-month MIT gym membership... but don't quote me on that). It was a little confusing to learn that turning is backwards depending whether you're sailing downwind or upwind -- the laws of physics govern all! -- but once we were out on the water, I got the hang of it pretty quick.
