Got a lot done today: Made 3 Review Games, 3 Final Exams. Printed off 180+ Finals. Printed off and put names on 31 makeup tests for the Makeup Test Day on Monday.

Need to think of a witty signature.

On May the Fourth Transport Canada issued a recall...

On all model 2017 AT-AT walkers... about 10,000 walkers are affected.



Say what you will about the Canada bureaucracy but they do have their moments.

Too bad they missed recalling the death star!

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
The students come up with the most interesting ideas that I wouldn't, perhaps being too set in my ways of thinking. Was grading some papers for my Theory class, and they had to choose a theory we'd discussed and relate it to Straight Outta Compton. One young man gave a solid paper breaking down how the characters of the film fit into Merton's 5 types of people, ranging from the band members being Rebels by replacing society's goals and means with their own, to the wife of the lead singer being a Conformist, since we only ever see her being faithful to her husband and looking over the legal paperwork for him. One young woman argued that in the scene with the L.A. Riots, with the Crips and Bloods coming together and ending their violence against each other briefly, they were in a minor way conforming to the idea of collective efficacy, even if it was for an anti-law enforcement reason.

I found a GoPro3+ while SCUBA diving this morning. Smile

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
I haven't worn my wedding ring in a few years because I've been afraid I'd lose stone.

It's happened twice. Once I never found it, the second time (same stone) I did find it, which was just luck).

I knew the tips (the part that holds the stones in place) were pretty worn down...so I put it in my jewelry box and started wearing my mom's wedding band instead.

So there's a jewelry story that does in-house repairs...which is kinda important to me.

Anyway, I decided to bring it in today. It'll be ready next Saturday! They're going to replace 14 tips! It's going to look like new.

I can't wait!

Yay me!

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
I have just downloaded the video and images from the GoPro I found. I can clearly see who the person that lost it looks like. The question is how do I find them? They must be close by visiting from the Phillipines but is there such a thing as a worldwide Lost & Found site?
