Quote of the Week From My Life.

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

... You've not seen 30 Rock? Or is my ironometer stuck on "straight" again?

 

I haven't watched broadcast TV for going on 5 years now. And even before that, I didn't watch very much. So no, I don't know what 30 Rock is for real.

Alcohol and people shouldn't mix' date=' but on occasion it can be hilarious. ^^[/quote']

 

Now THERE's a quote worth preserving.

 

By the way, you're still working on your doctorate aren't you?

The palindromedary says I had a quote I wanted to post but after seeing Mr. Keyes' wonderful contributions I completely forgot what I was going to say.

Oh. I was just thinking then I could quote it as "Dr. Marcus says 'Alcohol and people shouldn't mix.'"

I'm already taking up his conceptual space?

 

Eeeexcellent ...

 

Stealing his space?

 

You're a space pirate?

The palindromedary reflects that even worse than a space pirate would be a time bandit.

From a different forum U frequent:

 

True' date=' the communicators are probably the most obsolete. They're just glorified walkie-talkies. They don't have voice mail, play music, take pictures, video games, GPS...[/quote']

They lose enough Red Shirts on away missions without everyone wandering around an alien planet playing Angry Birds.

Student 1: I smell burning rubber.

 

Me: That's the restaurant downstairs. They ran out of food, so they're cooking shoes. :sneaky:

 

Student 1: :lol:

 

Student 2: Ew! That's nasty. :idjit:

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

My son (high school sophomore) has some math homework to do during his spring break, which he is resisting. I am "helping" which is what we call it when he doesn't know how to do some of the problems.

 

[Ranting digression: when did they start teaching math such that the first thing you do is reach for a calculator?]

 

Geometry problem, finding areas of sections of circles. I show him how to do problems. I all but slap his hand when he reaches for the calculator.

 

A recurrent argument eventually re-erupts, based on age, strength, intelligence, and treachery always overcoming youth and skill.

 

At one point he says, "You might have intelligence, and strength, and treachery on your side. But we have numbers." ("We", of course, is kids of his generation.)

 

I get in his face and whisper intensely: "You do ... but you don't know how to use them."

"I think they should pass a law against suicide bombing."

 

"What? Isn't suicide bombing already illegal?"

 

"Yeah, it's called 'first-degree murder'."

 

"Well then, how come you never hear about suicide bombers going to jail?"

 

"Did you really just ask that?"

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

At Norwescon last weekend, a panel talking about the best board & card games of the last year. The only female panelist says, I think speaking of the new game Get Nuts:

 

"Then there's [this game] where you grab each others' nuts."

 

One of the male panelists, over the laughter: "You're squirrels! You're squirrels!"

Re: Quote of the Week From My Life.

 

So anyway...

 

My Dad was cutting up this humongous tree that fell down during last week's storm and his chainsaw got stuck. (I got a great picture of this dead tree w/a chainsaw sticking straight up out of it like the Sword in the Stone.) He gave up and went to get another chainsaw to free it. I looked it over, and with a bit of finesse (yeah, like I've got any brute strength) worked it loose. I went inside and proudly showed him the now-free chainsaw, liberated from the tree.

 

"How'd you do that?"

 

"Divine Right. I'm King of the Britons now, so I'm takin' my magic chainsaw and movin' to Camelot. See ya later!"

 

He just rolled his eyes, with that Why can't I have a normal son? look on his face....
