Really smart people choose to go to all sorts of colleges. But beware the doctor who got into their safety school and still finished near the bottom of their class.

I’d like to believe the complexity and ingenuity of class pranks increased with the course difficulty. Alas, this is usually not the case.
People love to put down the fields of others. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s all about ego and all, but honestly it just seems bizarre at times. Anyone halfway intelligent can see the difficulty in fields not their own, and they also wouldn’t be so insecure about their intellect. Which makes it a fun quick tipoff of someone’s insecurity when they disparage another field.
No, we’re not simply making fun of video game players. There’s just always something funny about someone creating an elaborate solution to a problem, but the basic problem still prevents the solution from working. This happens all the time in companies,
At the local zoo, for example, they had a cockroach problem in their rain forest exhibit. So they brought in some type of lizard to eat them. They ignored them, and now they have a cockroach and lizard problem.
Science classes would probably grab more student attention if they were put into the terms of a soap opera. I’ll leave it to you to think of your own dirty science spinoff of Downton Abbey.
Aren’t the elements in the first panel kind of cute? Except for Nitrogen, what’s up with that guy?
There’s always something funny about a polar bear mauling someone. Anyway, truth is that if polar bears could fight back, we’d all take global warming more seriously. Since they can’t, people will continue driving tank-like-SUVs with the argument that they “need it.” Obviously our educational system has failed in teaching the difference between wants and needs. Our churches haven’t done much better at teaching us to be good stewards of the earth.
This has been a recurring problem at many jobs I’ve held. I understand the predicament of the I.T. department. How can they judge my knowledge of a computer? How can they allow different computer setups when disk images are so much simpler? Still, when I see it being an issue for people who are essentially teaching I.T. skills, then I have to wonder if perhaps there is a better way? Anyone have one?
Many students complain about having to take introductory classes because they “know it already.” These are usually the students who make a C or D in class. Perhaps because they do know it all and are simply bored. More likely they don’t know as much as they think.
The Reese’s peanut butter cup eggs really are the best. I’m not entirely sure why, either. I assume it has something to do with the changed peanut butter to chocolate ratio, but now that they make trees for Christmas and hearts for Valentine’s Day that hypothesis doesn’t seem to hold. They simply don’t taste as good. Maybe it’s psychological, but then that would mean I’m crazy for eggs…yeah, probably has something to do with the ratio.
I like to joke that a random number generator would make the job of a teacher a lot easier. For a large percentage of students it wouldn’t even matter, because they simply don’t care. Still, it feels ever so slightly unethical. Maybe if they were just drawn from a hat?
