Re: "A Bunch of Rocks" Discussion

You are suspiciously good at illustrating my daydreams. I've had a lot of different variations on this one.

Re: "Scantron" Discussion

A teacher once had us do an accompanying essay section inside the area marked "DO NOT WRITE IN THIS BOX" in big, threatening, non-serifed letters. It really fucked with my head the first time. Apparently the scantron had no trouble grading it. Or maybe that's just what we were led to belie...

I've been counting the number of footsteps between different places on campus lately. If had a stopwatch, I'd be timing the walks, dividing by the number of steps, finding the average for a series of tests, and using that to determine exactly how fast I can get from place to place, so that I can con...
