    Silverman had a better response: “Maybe it’s Thor up on Mount Olympus who’s making the tides go in and out."

    ahahaha

    My favorite was the comment that said:
    "Thor is in Valhalla, Zeus is from Olympus!"
    I realize silverman was just trying to say it might be a different god, but know your norse and greek gods damnit!

    Once again I'll say this is not to excuse their behavior. In fact, it makes it worse in my view.

    But I really believe O'Reilly, Beck et al are just in it for the money. They really don't believe this shit. Televangelists by and large do the same thing.

    They're in it for the money but watch a little O'Reilly and you realize pretty quick there's really no intelligence behind the act either. He's simply not that bright.

    I think the post-doc I work with may not view me very highly anymore.

    Because he was like "Do you own Photoshop and Illustrator (for making figures for scientific papers)?"

    and I was like "...Kind of..."

    and he was like "You know I'm just not going to ask any questions about that."

    I think I know what it was. When in high school I took calculus and statistics which I got credit for. And it went through this college (cu denver). But I never actually registered at the college or anything like that and it was all taken care of by high school like a normal high school course. So I have no information to use to get transcripts or anything and the grades and classes are on my transcript from the college I got my bachelors from(CSU).

    So lots of phone calls about classes from 10 years ago that I have no information on basically.

    I dunno what the cause is in your case, but in my case...

    I took some post-baccalaureate classes at a state university. When I applied to the state university, I'd put on my application that I was going to take some classes from a local community college. I didn't end up going to the local community college, and obviously didn't transfer any credits, but the state university put down the community college as a source of transfer credits anyway.

    So when the grad school admissions people got my transcript from the state university, it listed the community college as a prior college.

    I had to go to the community college, obtain a letter stating that I never went there, drop it off at the state university, and then get the state university to correct my records and send an amended transcript to grad school admissions.

    I'd called CU Denver and see if they can produce a letter verifying that you never went there.

    Ideally, if you're close enough to CU Denver to just drive there, get a physical copy of the letter and make copies.
