  1. It’s so exotic of Zurich Polytechnic to hold their graduation ceremony in English.

    • Yup. Through this entire story, though, I was wondering if Larry Niven had heard this before he published “The Return of William Proxmire” in 1989. That’s one where time travel is invented, and a politician who thinks the space program is a waste of money travels back in time to give Robert Heinlein the flu vaccine before he catches it, preventing him from leaving military service, on the grounds that he was the main inspiration for the majority of NASA engineers. That doesn’t turn out the way he’d hoped either, but I won’t post spoilers here because it’s definitely worth reading.
