i wonder if i'm the most excellent student ever sometimes. after today's prehistoric ecology class (which i should really call post-proceedural rather than post-modern, so the post-anything geeks can slaver over the semantics, whatev.) i gave the professor a thumbs-up & said "good class today. a+!" & he said "its talking about extinction. it always perks people up." to which i replied "mel brookes had his hat on straight, you know?" & his eyes lit up & he was like "yes. yes he did." plus today's class was totally awesome, higgsian vs. flanneryian site territory & catchment maps, geodesic vs. pheric distance, von thesisian polygons, all sorts of fucked up shit. & he kept calling inuits "skraelings." fuck!
