Nick-O-Mickeyan Ethics

I thought I'd start off this blog with a bit of intellectual tomfoolery from my first college semester, the Fall of 1983, when the world was young. I was taking a Philosophy course in "Greek Foundations of Western Thought", and I was preparing to write course essays on Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics." The assignment sheet was tampered with in my absence by my roommate Bryan (who always played Felix to my Oscar, and has since held a very respectable software engineering job in Columbus, OH for many years now - he's also the first one to dub me "The Euphemist"), and you may view the results below. To set things up a bit, my historic nickname is "Mickey", and another student named Nick was our dorm floor neighbor and was taking the same course; hence "Nick-O-Mickeyan Ethics."
