I think I only missed the TV show. "Rich U" is a long-standing super-secret code word used by a long-time Bored spectre (of gender irrelevent to the story) when they don't want us to know they work at Harvard.

That's a lot of work for two points.

I sometimes get long-standing super-secret code words mixed up with fun facts.

Hey! Don't be hating on the fun facts, man.....

Meanwhile, I would appreciate a Rich U deuce if you're handing them out. Apparently, I am also too clever for Esto's own good.
