s2m cute formal

(no subject)

My first post here! This is from my friend stariceling on the occupational hazards of being a biology major:

Also, I managed to do my homework/worksheet in class. Whee, fun. This was very, very, very necessary, because we covered the male reproductive system this week. It feels like every time I try to work on my Anatomy stuff someone has to lean over me and shout, "OMG STAR'S LOOKING AT NAKED PICTURES!" and I shall not name names, but it is always the same person.

In which sooper sekrit agendas are revealed.

On 50bookchallenge, blisspath makes a post entitled Worst Book Ever Written: Marcus Pfister's The Rainbow Fish.

crowyhead responds:
Ooh, do Walter the Farting Dog next! What's the sooper sekrit agenda of that one? Or, how about Frog and Toad Are Friends - you know that they're MORE THAN FRIENDS, right?

QWP, but it's a public post.

This might be a little morbid, but it just cracked me up. Re: VA Tech

"Here's my thought on that in a nutshell: Violent movies and videogames do not make people violent. Violent people are attracted to violent media. Of course, so are many of the rest of us, just for different reasons. I ended up watching The Matrix about 46,000 times--at one point on a three-day loop--for the book, and I shot nobody. If you want to talk about warning signs, don't look at the kid's taste in movies or his literary output--look at those two things in the context of his real-life behavior, which was already disturbing his teachers and classmates. Stephen King? A folksy, personable guy in real life. Quentin Tarantino? Full of energy and enthusiasm. Consequently, no one expects them to go on shooting rampages. The bitter, stalkative kid who won't even speak when spoken to, who also writes about bloody murder sprees? For God's sake, keep an eye on him.)"

(Jack Thompson said) "This is not rocket science. When a kid who has never killed anyone in his life goes on a rampage and looks like the Terminator, he's a video gamer," he told MSNBC.com.

samaside: Because it totally couldn't have come from, you know, watching Terminator.
