Born under punches

Thirty years ago today, I got my Ph.D. in Chemical Technology from the Delft University of Technology. My thesis had a quote on the inner front page: Don't you miss it! Don't you miss it! Not your usual fare, where most candidates picked a religious or philosophical quote. Mine came from Born under punches, a track from the brilliant Talking Heads album Remain in light. And it produced a bottle of wine, courtesy of a bet with my colleague and friend Paul. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
