Commented at your place, Polly. I'm still aghast at Bill 43. Your young twerp bullies -- they wouldn't be studying with Flanagan or Cooper or anyone from that set, would they?

The business admin students would do well to learn from this little ditty I got this AM.


Quote
  Fast Sex!

    Eddie wanted desperately to have sex with this really cute,really hot girl in his office ... But she was dating someone else..

    One day Eddie got so frustrated that he went to her and said,

    "I'll give you $100 if you let me have sex with you."


    The girl looked at him, and then said, "NO!"

    Eddie said, "I'll be real fast. I'll throw the money on the floor, you bend down and I'll finish by the time you've picked it up."

    She thought for a moment and said that she would consult with her boyfriend.

    So she called him and explained the situation.
     

    Her boyfriend says, "Ask him for $200, and pick up the money really fast.

    He won't even be able to get his pants down."

    She agreed and accepts the proposal.

    Over half an hour goes by

    And the boyfriend is still waiting for his girlfriend's call.

    Finally, after 45 minutes the boyfriend calls and asks, "What happened?"


     
    Still breathing hard,

    Still breathing hard,


     

    Still breathing hard,

    Still breathing hard, she managed to reply,
     
    "The bastard had all quarters!"


    Management lesson:
     
    Always consider a business proposition in its entirety
     
    Before agreeing to it and getting screwed.

"It is also a good rule not to put overmuch confidence in the observational results that are put forward until they are confirmed by theory." -- Arthur Stanley Eddington

Thanks, skdadl, for commenting. There is a mind-boggling lack of discussion and dissent among students. The two have acted as though I am outrageous to challenge them. I think students are slowly waking up to the situation and beginning to ENGAGE...but it helps to have comments from former students...reminders of the tradition of student resistance...the voices of people who do not see education as a commodity.

I believe Coletto is in Poli Sci and Cooper is in that Dept.

I don't know why, but I feel like there are big changes coming in Alberta...I've just seen the demographic of Calgary change over the past ten years...there is a huge force on the left that will eventually manifest on the political scene. People have no idea how many pissed off Albertans there are who are ready for big changes.
