Adding to the Divorce Rate

Shamelessly ganked from ATL.

And another

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Class Notes:

A lot of times we have individuals in the class who like to flex their mental muscles out loud by proposing outrageous hypotheticals using the principles that we’re learning. This is a highly annoying action that holds up the class and causes a significant amounts of eye rolling from offended classmates. However, occasionally someone will rise to the challenge and end a hypo with a succinct statement that causes clear finality.

EXAMPLE:

Gunner: But why did they only sue Pittston? Clearly both entities were at fault. Buffalo Creek Mining Co had some of the fault, and so did the parent company Pittston.

Student 1: Because Pittston has all the money

Gunner: But why didn’t they sue Buffalo Creek Mining Co too? It’s a matter of…. (about to launch on long hypothetical argument that has nothing to do with where we’re going in the class)

Veto (girl who sits behind me): Because PITTSTON, has all the MONEY. *glare*

Gunner: Oh.

Well done Veto!

As of right now, Veto is really the only one who’s stepped up (though mostly through Tourette Syndrome apparently) and put these offending individuals in their place.

I, for one, recommit myself to do my part in stopping this epidemic.

  1. Some times, you just need a clue stick. I suggest the Louisville Slugger model myself, laser etched with “Clue Stick”. That way they can read the impression in the mirror the next day. The responding EMT’s will understand just fine.

    For senior partners, professors, and folks in gov’t/politics, I suggest wrecking balls, front bumpers of rapidly moving vehicles, or pile drivers. If you need that much force to get the person a clue, it might as well be terminal.
