Get over yourself. Just because you're not an antisocial douche doesn't mean everyone else isn't allowed to be one.

I'd say it would depend on the lecture and possibly whether they made enough pancakes for everyone.

But seriously, sometimes people need to be snapped out of their routines. If you want to do some sort of stunt, you can and it should be judged on its merits not "don't be an antisocial douche". In any case, if theres any lecture to do such a stunt in it's probably the philosophy one.


... plus if you bitchslapped someone into next week you'd probably get arrested for assault which is a bit past antisocial behaviour. ;)

Personally my contribution to the weirder world is very small and mostly amounts to people getting confused at why I have a towel, on the few occasions that I wear a towel around the city (for example towel day).

FIX YOUR DAMN QUOTE TAGS.

Also, I'm not giving you any pancakes now. If I'm in a good mood, I'll maybe save you some bacon, but don't get your hopes up.

They brought an extra plate for me, and we found ways to justify the action by both the standards of Mill and Kant, so I think it was appropriate. :)

Nice. Food = win.

My English class is pretty awesome. We don't actually do much, but the class discussions were pretty fun. We spent half a period talking about vomit one day, then another half on bathroom graffiti :lol: .

As to personal contributions, my lab goggles are died red and black.

Bathroom graffiti!
My history teacher mentioned that there isn't enough funny graffiti in the staff bathrooms a few days ago, and after a few minutes of class discussion on the topic someone mentioned one of my creations, without knowing I'd done it.
The graffiti was "The center of the Earth is the end of the world". Someone wrote under it "I'm so high just from reading that" (I posted this before, right?)

So I said "Oh yeah! I wrote that. It's from a Green Day song."
Teacher: "...wait, you're saying that was your graffiti?"
"uh, yeah."
(class cracks up. It takes awhile for everyone to stop laughing...)

(yes, I have an awesome history teacher)

Anyone on Facebook who wants to participate in a weird event, there is an event called "September 17th" which, by dint of great coincidence, is not actually being held that day. RSVP for the event, if you like.

Two of my friends and I made icecream in the staff kitchen of the physics department. We got the post grads to provide us with liquid nitrogen to freeze it then we took it to our thermodynamics lecture to share. The staff were all pretty interested in how it was going to turn out so we told them to come to the staff room after our lecture to try some.

The three of us also started wandering the uni between classes and writing the SOS from Haruhi [It's like the one show we all have in common] in the corner of every white board we could get to all over the uni just to see if anyone wuld notice and how long they'd stay up.

We decided to go visit our course supervisor without leaving out wheelie chairs.

I've been wearing a cape to my finals every semester. At first it was just a Yu-Gi-Oh blanket tied around my neck, but then I got an awesome bright red cape.

Some other weird stuff around campus (not my doing):

Chalk graffiti that says
"Dear Humanity
Live free, die happy.
--IX"

The word "Help!" appears in the sidewalk outside the math building whenever it rains.

Latest in bathroom graffiti:
"They laugh because it hurts ... because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting"
(It's from Stranger in a Strange Land, and one of my favorite quotes from the book)

Also from SiaSL, we need to arrange for a group to start singing this in a public place:
With an ugh! and a groan, and a kick of the eels,
Death comes quiet, or it comes with squeals --
But the pleasantest place to find your end
Is a cup of cheer from the hand of a friend.

There's more, but that's the chorus. Jubal's such an awesome character.

Gum has arrived, and DAMN. 22 pounds of gum is a lot of of fucking gum. The box is about the size of a small television and completely full except for the plastic bag to keep the balls from getting wet. My friend is going to be so pissed when we give him this.

Also, the size of them is a lot smaller than would be reasonable to sell individually, so your lovely quarter-plans are basically shot.

If someone says "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" to me, I'm going to give him an at least vaguely Nazi-looking Roman salute and yell "IO SATVRNALIA!"

I hate the holidays. They seem to be the only times when people don't want to be douchebags. As in the Christmas truce of World War I, how people are so positive on one day of the year only serves to underscore how odious they are on the other 364.

There's a cherry picker parked outside a nearby store sometimes with Ontario plates on it. It always made my day a little weirder to wonder why someone drove one of those 3700km across the country and left it there.

I discovered I'd been carrying around a burned CD full of techno I had no use for. So I left it in a DVD bargain bin. :mrgreen: It's got a nice cover on it too, you wouldn't realize it's homemade until you looked at the inside and saw a CD-R. (Not having anything on the back or sides might also give it away.)

I wanted to slip it into the actual CD rack, but there were too many people around.

I can see why you'd think that, but no. It appears to be tiny food (The "flute" is actually a serving tray with some kind of cupcake on it). Everyone has ridiculously small plates and glasses.

Can someone fill me in as to what's futuristic about this one?

The boy on the right has a flute stuck in his head, sticking out the back.

I can see why you'd think that, but no. It appears to be tiny food (The "flute" is actually a serving tray with some kind of cupcake on it). Everyone has ridiculously small plates and glasses.

I thought it might be that the men and women were sitting beside each other. Damn liberals.
