  1. "I am the terror that flaps in the night!"
  2. Darwin. Einstein is almost universally venerated, even by people without a hint of the mathematics necessary to understand even the most basic things he said. Bigger Sin in Modern America: Being an intellectual vs. Being a moderate
  3. If the movie is as tedious as this thread has become, I'll probably skip it.
  4. Meanwhile, Cancer is singing this whilst grading exams:
  5. Somebody gave me one of those fruit juice and kale smoothie things, and I got around to drinking it yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't vile at all.
  6. I posted a sign a week and a half ago saying that all late work, make-up work, re-submissions, etc. had to be done by Monday, March 18th at 2:30 p.m. I posted another sign just below that one on Monday at 2:45 with a picture of Porky Pig saying, "That's all, folks!"* A kid walked in today during lunch to ask if I could reopen some of the assignments online--some going back to the first week of the term--because he had been 'sick'. Seriously?! -- *This was new this year. In previous years, the sign has just said, "NO."
  7. "Look, Dad-dee, a snake!" *WHACK* "Snakee go down the hooooole."
  8. I just handed back several papers...without recording the scores first. I need a nap.

  11. My wife's family are fond of "Son of a motherless goat!" from The Three Amigos.
  12. Since the 2019 season starts today (in Japan), is it time to start a new thread?
  13. There's also a specific word for which [obscene gerund] is an adequate substitute.
  14. You called it. Raiders sign controversial linebacker Vontaze Burfict despite ugly history with Antonio Brown\ * muches popcorn *
  15. I will also occasionally write [REDACTED] where a profane word would normally go. I think I got the idea from Heinlein, one of whose characters in Starship Troopers said something about "the best redacted unit in the whole unprintable army", or words to that effect.
