Wenn jetzt Sommer wär

Why the Pilgrims settled in Massachusetts rather than in Virginia remains an utter mystery to me. "Oh look!" said some bloke on the Mayflower. "Freezing weather for a third of the year and lots of rocky soil that will hinder agriculture. Yes, let's start our colony here."

If it weren't for that thick fellow, perhaps the Ivy League would be scattered across the rolling hills of Virginia and the lush plains of Georgia and Florida, in which case tens of thousands of students would migrate south for the school year and north for the summer (which would make a lot more sense than the status quo). If only the sea gods had a kinder sense of humor...

Listening to:
"Wenn jetzt Sommer wär (If it were summer now)" - Pohlmann

2 down, 2 more to go.
