Re: Logical fallacies/douchebaggery in commercials.

Whenever they compare to something unspecified like that, I always like to fill in "...than a tortoise." 30% faster! ...than a tortoise. Now with 20% more calcium! ...than a tortoise. Better <insert product here>, for less! ...than a tortoise. Twice the processing power! ...of a tortoise....

Re: Star Trek vs. Star Wars

I am very glad I'm not the first person here to think of the Sun Crusher. :mrgreen:

To everyone who has said that Star Wars is cheesy or overpowered, I would also like to point out that in the SW universe space travel has been commonplace for something like 100,000 years.

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

My third year Latin teacher loved to give people really obscure hints if they were completely lost on a meaning. Once somebody could not remember mare (sea), so he said something about West Side Story. A little later, he is back on West Side Story, and says "How is it that this guy walks into a...

Re: Standardized tests... thoughts, opinions, ideas?

The MCAS is, and has always been, a load of crap. You get multiple choice questions with no correct answer, more than one correct answer, or else the question is BS. As for open response, they have them corrected by anyone they can just pull off the street in Iowa or someplace like that, so if you d...

Re: Real that's what she said moment in school

I was on the bus with a bunch of my friends about a year ago, and we were talking about burglary, breaking & entering, etc. At one point one of my friends (and mind you, it was completely unintentional) interjected: "Actually, it wouldn't really be 'breaking and entering' if you just leave ...

Re: Punnilingus

Thanks for pointing that out. It's funny - I always mix those up; in fact, I was thinking '350Z' while I was typing, but I still posted '350X.' It probably doesn't help that z and x are right next to each other on the keyboard. :lol:

Re: Punnilingus

"Rest of the English-speaking world way": Van Goff. (Occasionally Van Gohk) Van Gohk I can easily buy, seeing as he's Dutch. Van Goff seems a stretch since it's spelled Gogh and not Gough. And anyhow it seems to me that by your standards, any pronunciation except the American is correct. ...

Re: Teachers that cannot teach

1. My fourth grade science teacher. She was really boring - all she ever did was drone on and on about something or other, and we were supposed to take many more notes than elementary school kids should even have to think about. On top of that, I had started at a new school that year, so when I got ...

Re: Punnilingus

A man robbed an art museum one night not too long ago, getting away with some of the world's most famous and expensive paintings. He managed to get inside cleanly, and would have gotten away if he had not been spotted by a night guard, who called the police. By the time the police arrived to give ch...
