    Hey guys. I just watched a car chase with two cop cars - they were driving down a one-way street that we were (thank god) at a red light for...then the guy being chased jumped out of his car and started bolting...tripped, and one of the cops apprehended and handcuff'd him in the middle of the intersection.

    Pretty intense.

    I try.

    Oh but night dragons story reminds me of my mother and son bonding time. There is this kid two houses away from us and he whent insane so he threatened to shoot his dad. And so me and my mom go on the balcony and she makes popcorn because a bunch of cops come with shotguns and then we hear them threatening the kid to drop the gun. Over-all there was no shooting and he gave up. So it was veryyyyyy boring and we left the balcony dissapointed.

    My school pisses me off. It's the same aforementioned AAU from Ahab's post above, and while academically I think it's a great school, the administration does irritating things all the time. For example, I had to cut back to part-time this semester because of the financial crunch, yet, my school offers no academic scholarships of any sort.

    They do, however, offer athletic scholarships. That's right. We have students there on full rides via a sports scholarship.

    I was driving back from UCLA last night southbound on the 405 and I saw 4 cops chasing an SUV going northbound. It was awesome.

    I am going to get bad grades this semester because I didn't even know how to function in some of my classes. College courses are so stupid.

    "Write a paper about film, and to help you, I won't tell you how to write it or give you any warning. Even though you feel like you did well, you will get a C."

    Or how about "I'm going to mumble up here in front of the chalk board and write down a whole bunch of equations, but don't worry, they don't matter, but here is a problem set that requires that you understand said equations, and here's a midterm that requires you understand me and the hundreds of pages of random notes that I wrote by hand, also chalk-full of grammatically vague questions that might cover things we never discussed or mentioned but you should know."

    or the tried-and-true "I'm just going to stand up here and point at some power point slides that are just bullet points from the chapter you just read, but you should really come to class and feel motivated by all of this."

    AND DON'T FORGET "Please identify some passages that have no context whatsoever and have no identifying features unless you memorized all of the 8 books you read, and write a paper about a passage and give an expert, completely undiluted analysis of it."

    It's like they're trying to set us up to be really fucking amazing at everything and prioritize their classes over all the other things we have to do. WHERE IS THE LOGIC IN THIS INCREDIBLY FLAWED AND RIDICULOUS SYSTEM?

    They're just making me feel like grades mean nothing at all, but that's going to do a shit load of good if my GPA makes them take away my aid and I don't get into grad school (not that I want to, but if I do in the future) because I didn't want sweat over a bunch of unimportant historical points and facts that ultimately don't matter to anyone but the professors and they only make them so important because if they don't they'll realize their profession is a waste of time.

    Ahhh memories. I used to love the grammatically vague questions.

    Bill walks into a store with $9.85 in small change, what does bill want to buy?
    a. Milk
    b. Bread
    c. He just came in to check out the hot female clerk with the big cans
    d. All of the above
    e. What the fuck?

    and that's when you ask what the hell he means, they come up with tried and true How the fuck should I know? answer, "It's all covered in the notes!"

    One of my professors last year (the only one at SCAD I've ever had a problem with) wrote horribly vague questions on her tests. I tried asking her a few questions on them, and she told me I was "thinking too much". Then I got a C on it, and got pissed, and tried asking her what she'd wanted on the test, and she asked me if I "have trouble taking tests". I get A's on tests probably 90% of the time, and a B 10% of the time, and I wanted to punch her.

    Oh yeah, that's the same professor whose lectures were all copy-pasted text from websites like Wikipedia.

    She sure was a winner.

    I have no major complaints with my school, but I am super ready to graduate and move on. The biggest thing I got out of my schooling was work ethic. Now that I have a pretty solid work ethic, I actually feel a bit held back by doing assignments that wont help me in my particular field (and of course silly gen ed classes that boring and easy).

    Most of my classes were case studies followed by us making an advertising campaign. We'd work so hard on it all week, only to have it torn apart by the professors.

    Terrified Student - "And so Toyota being an industry leader would offer more brand power...."

    Prof. Evil - "Whoa-whoa-whoa! Toyota is an industry leader?"

    Terrified Student - "Yes sir"

    Prof Evil - "Can you back that up?"

    Terrified Student - "We did a survey"

    Prof Evil - "I don't see it in your report"

    Terrified Student - "I forgot to include it"

    Prof Evil - "You have an F... sit down."

    I swear to God, my last presentation my hands were shaking I was so nervous.

    Hah, yeah...I actually found half of the sites my professor got her information from - none of them looked legit, either.

    I considered writing an angry "blahblah" to somebody, or talking to them about it, up on the administrative ladder...but I decided against it, mostly because she's a pretty decent professor for studio classes...she should just never be allowed to teach lecture classes.

    She'd also know it was me, absolutely...and i have to take her again at some point, so...D:

    Mustang, I think of horses when I think of you. And llamas. That's a zombie llama, right?

    &@MT: I think I would like a professor like that. I really liked the bio teacher I had in high school that was ridiculous and expected everyone to care about biology more than anything and was really good at making us feel guilty...but that was because I was really good at biology, never had to read the text book, and she loved me.

    Man, this is a boring story. I picked my username in 97 from a sub-charachter in Wing Commander Prophecy with the call sign Mustang (you remember Wing Commander right?). Anyway after 4 or 5 years some investigative person found a region of Tibet called the Hidden Kingdom of Mustang. It became a bit of a long running joke and I started referring to myself as the Grand Llama in homage to the hindu monks that live in said kingdom. Eventually I started using a Llama as an avatar, and of course as self-appointed ruler of said kingdom I needed an awesome crown.

    See I told you it was a boring story, but you asked, well you didn't ask but I like talking about myself because I'm pretentious.

    Awesome TOTP, now I get to out-cute ND. Whaaaaachow!
