If writing that paper isn’t hard enough, try working the phrase “I smoke crack rocks” into it.
That’s what Gabriel Parent of Carnegie Mellon University did for the PhD Challenge, deftly inserting the sentence into a peer-reviewed, academic paper published in Proceedings of IEEE Workshop on Spoken Language Technology. (See the paper here.)
- One box of chicken-flavored Maruchan Ramen Noodle Soup
- One pack of leather elbow patches
- The Official 2010 PhD Challenge Winning Paper Award Certificate
- One Autographed 8×10 Photograph of Nobel Prize Laureate Paul Krugman
But the PhD Challenge is having a tough time getting that autographed photo of Paul Krugman for Gabriel, which is where The Ink comes in.
Princeton, can anyone get this guy an autographed photo of Paul Krugman? Let the PhD Challenge know!
