  1. 075-082 — Languages are fascinating. I've dabbled in several but since school, I generally don't get beyond the bare minimum for making a purchase in a store.

    My to learn list includes Japanese, Irish (Gaelic), Lithuanian, and Romanian. And I really should brush up my German.

    087-088 — When I was a senior in college, I had some basically free day and I could go to Capitol Hill and atted a committee hearing or two in the morning and sit in the Senate Gallery in the afternoon. It was always fascinating. They've probably tightened security now, but it can be a great experience.
