Cheersical Education Fun Fact!

Here’s an interesting fact: there is a character named Peter Beak in David Foster Wallace’s epic novel Infinite Jest. DFW was from east-central Illinois. Given the amount of organic chemistry in the novel (relatively speaking, a lot), this is almost certainly a reference to this guy. Small world!

New post coming soon…
