It’s Safer Doing Economics From the Armchair

Humor, Steve Landsburg 9 Comments

For Thanksgiving I was in Rochester, and went to see Steve Landsburg give a lecture. (It was great, by the way. I’m sure the students didn’t realize how much better his lecture on two-part pricing was than the typical one.) But beforehand I tried his hobby (click on the thumbnails for better photos):

Bob Back

Bob Flip

Bob Pose

Steve Silk

So now, in addition to integral calculus, we have at least two things at which Steve is clearly better than me.

    While you two gentlemen were practicing your aerial silk routine were the words “don’t worry I’ll catch you” uttered?

    That looks like so much fun 🙂

    I cannot at all tell what this hobby actually is. Is Steve in Cirque du Soleil?

          Seeing as nobody has their plonker out I would have to say no. It is called aerial silk, among other names.
