Teenage Mutant Ninja Philosophers

So, instead of having a quiz and discussing the readings, we just had our exam. We were allowed to leave right after, which was a nice change. The study guide is critical if you want to receive a decent grade on the exam though, so make sure you all study it ahead of time so you don't have to try to cram right before the exam. I hope everyone else feels like they did a good job. We're going to have to double-up on Monday, which should be interesting because there is a lot of stuff to cover. But yeah, everyone get your posts up here and get your credit.
