One thing that made me laugh, today

“Weak ties provide a very large, diverse group of people.  As Erickson establishes in “Social Networks: The Value of Variety,” this may come in handy when a medical problem arises.  Someone in this vast network of weak ties has to know a good doctor.  The example used in class was with Professor Lena’s cat.  If she goes to the animal clinic that all her strong ties go to, and the doctor doesn’t know what is wrong, she should resort to using her weak ties where their vet clinics are because there would be plenty of options.  This may save her cat’s life.”
