If you somehow made it that far, you probably will have set some kind of obscure record. Why would you want to go and ruin a brilliant streak like that? I mean, unless you were in terrible health and had no real quality of life at that point?

I get it. My Daddy is 90 and a few months ago one of his doctors told him he needed to go on a cardio diet. He told them he was old enough to eat any damn thing he wanted.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

Does every secretary on this campus illegally use the conference rooms for their MLM stuff?

(Illegally, because apparently under state law, it is illegal to sell something using university property to host the event, unless it's a university activity.)

"Holy cow, you're a really great writer" - thought after reading a student's reaction paper and Googling phrases from it to check for plagiarism because it's that well written and this is a 101 class. The student is seriously just that awesome. Smile

Thought of the day: How useful is the power of quackery in advancing societal goals?

Think about it: Bees are doing bad and sheit, make some ''miracle'' honey cure based on knowledge gained from the ancient Egyptians. Increased demand for honey -> increased demand for bees -> bees all around.
And like can you use this for other stuff.

RE: Random thoughts
Heard something funny & ironic on the radio today. My wife listens to, and I briefly tolerate on the way to work, Christian rock music. This morning, a song came on which attempted to make a metaphorical link between the Christian god and a lighthouse (specifically, the song was titled "My Lighthouse" by Rend Collective). The overall message was that they would follow the lighthouse through the darkness and troubled sea so that they could safely reach shore, blah blah blah. It's apparently a very popular song in Christian rock circles.
Now, for those of you who aren't sailors or have a rudimentary understanding of seamanship, lighthouses aren't used to mark safe harbor. They're used to warn you away from rocky shores. Following one is how you wreck a ship.
Just thought I'd share a brief laugh.

A Catholic, an Atheist, a Muslim, a Jew, a Hindu, a Baptist, and a Pastafarian all walk into a bar. They chat, drink, laugh, and have a good time. There's no joke to be had. It's what happens when you're not a dick.

Definitely did in the feedback! Big Grin Compare 'so good I thought they plagiarized' to one today who turned in, "I couldn't find any rubric or instructions anywhere on D2L." and that was it...the course home page, first thing you see is a News item, "Reaction Paper Instructions".

RE: Random thoughts
I used to think that I was doing something wrong with my rubbish, recycling and green waste bins, because they kept getting cracks and holes in them until stuff falls out through their sides.

Then I saw the abuse they get at the "hands" of the automated dump-it-in-the-truck mechanism. You'd think some mechanical engineer could come up with a dumping method that didn't beat the shit out of the bins. How many more bins need destroying before some desk-jockey realizes the money that could be *saved* by some good old-fashioned engineering?
