Nutters in Bloom, and Comments From Today, and a Song

Wow, people on the internet are crazy. I’m not going to taunt Happy Fun Freak any more than to say that, despite temptation, except to note that when one knows absolutely nothing about a topic but insists on talking about it and pretending he does know about it, it’s absolutely clear to the people who do know something how little one actually knows.

A few comments from today which need to be preserved, from a meeting on student presentation proposals, a chat with a professor about the Ministry of Education, and a chat with a teacher in another department:

  1. “Wow! Since she’ll be visiting the Korea Sex Education Center, I hope she’ll bring condoms and distribute them to the audience!”
    “I would so give her the top mark if she did that!”
  2. “Which drunk middle-aged man wrote those guidelines, d’ya think?”
  3. “Please choose another topic that is less self-referential. ‘Students must graduate!’ is not an argument.”
  4. (Scrawled comment, scratched out:) “Please see any professor about this proposal… any professor but me!”
  5. “Midway along this road of life, / I found myself  ‘into the Holly-wood,’ / and I could not find my way back out…”
  6. “Okay, but do you know about the Fox sisters?”
  7. “My friend thinks you’re very pretty.”
    “Yes, except the makeup.”
  8. “I told them, my students: you can go to heaven and to hell!”
    “With multiple choice exams, you mean?”
    “Yes, on the multiple choice exams! Heaven and hell! Hahaha!”

Only one of those is made up. Which one do you think it is?

“Beautiful Person”:
I think I’d rather translate the title as “Beautiful One” as “Person” is so awkward in English. Anyway, nice song:

I’m appreciating songs like this more and more as I learn to play things six-string-fangled thing. Even if it is essentially a Korean remix of “The Water Is Wide”…

More guitar-and-voice songs to be had here, performed by my classmate from Clarion West, Meghan Sinoff, who with Tina Connolly, taught me how to hunt for seaglass… which reminds me, I’m overdue for the second half of my trip’s summary.
