Duel To The Death

by: Abinadi Ayerdis | on: 2009-04-22 16:23:55

Recently, my girlfriend and I had a huge fight of dramatic proportions about an issue that has troubled civilized society since the time that Romans reached the height of their glory.

That's right, we debated that age-old conundrum of whether the toilet seat should remain up or down.

Not a big deal, right? Think again. It was a war of attrition. There was no quarter given. Soldiers were killed; villages were pillaged and burned. It is the children who suffer the most.

She may have won the battle, but I will win ... the next battle.

Tea Party | Conroe

 Today I attended the Tea Party in Conroe, TX (Montgomery County). It was a huge success.

 Official numbers show that at least 899 people signed in. Given that not all of the people attending the event signed in at the table, the best estimate puts total attendance over the course of the event around 1200 people, including those not of voting age (one girl had a sign that said "I'm Only Nine Years Old and I'm Already $143,000 in Debt" or something to that effect).



My First Rant

So do you think it is either practical or ethical for a professor to give his students a syllabus 28 pages long, with a table of contents?  On top of that, every assignment should be approximately 1 page in length, but the assignment directions are about 4 pages.  

This is making me wonder why the heck I went back to school. 

And on a political note, did you know that funding for school library programs puts librarians in the same category as janitors and paper towels.  Clearly, public education is a failing system.
