Action Leibniz!

Apologies, all. I’m really, really, really busy. Dead week sucks, but the weekend between dead week and finals week REALLY SUCKS.
I’m about ready to die. And the one thing I have to blog about tonight is the one thing that saved me.
So I was dinking around on the internet in between study sessions today—it was necessary to save my sanity—and I found these comics called Action Philosophers!
I bought them after I read the first preview (the one on Descartes). This looks like the funniest comic in existence.
Yay. Here’s hoping I can survive long enough to read them.

This is one of Claudia’s blog titles if and only if it contains a bad joke about biconditionals

Three points of interest today!

1. That Symbolic Logic test? Yeah, I rocked it.
142/150. I didn’t miss a single point on the three proofs. I lost all my points because I did a truth table with three variables, P, Q, and R, when there were only two variables in the sentence I was trying to table. Sad. But hey, I got an A, and I rocked those proofs. I’m happy.

2. Finally, I’ve found someone with whom I can make Godot jokes!
It’s another conversation with Sean, of course.

Action Leibniz! says:

Wow, there are 8 people on the wait list for Buddhism

Action Leibniz! says:

Huh

Giant Enemy Crab says:

“Waiting for Buddhism”

Giant Enemy Crab says:

haha, only two are on the waitlist for Godot

Action Leibniz! says:

Hahahaha

Action Leibniz! says:

BECKETT 101: Godot

Action Leibniz! says:

Class size limit: 0

Giant Enemy Crab says:

hahaha

Giant Enemy Crab says:

exactly

Action Leibniz! says:

Location: a country road. A tree.

Giant Enemy Crab says:

but it’ll be 1 when Godot comes

Giant Enemy Crab says:

tomorrow

Action Leibniz! says:

Hahaha

Giant Enemy Crab says:

maybe

Action Leibniz! says:

We need to offer that class

Giant Enemy Crab says:

haha, I’d teach it

Giant Enemy Crab says:

of course, I’d teach anything where I think they’d appreciate a monologue

Action Leibniz! says:

Haha, you could always tell students class is cancelled ’cause Godot couldn’t make it that day, but he’ll be here tomorrow

Action Leibniz! says:

Post it on Blackboard

Giant Enemy Crab says:

hahahahahah

Giant Enemy Crab says:

that’d be AMAZING

Giant Enemy Crab says:

they’d show up and we’d sit around for ten minutes, then let them go

Giant Enemy Crab says:

haha, I’d tell them I was grading attendence so they’d have to come

Giant Enemy Crab says:

and then just give everyone an A for playing

Action Leibniz! says:

Orchestrate it so that the other minor characters would show up and actually start acting the play out

Action Leibniz! says:

Confuse everybody

Giant Enemy Crab says:

yeah

Giant Enemy Crab says:

“We have a guest speaker today”

Action Leibniz! says:

Hahaha

Action Leibniz! says:

“Seeing as how Godot’s been delayed…”

Giant Enemy Crab says:

  yeah!

Remember that Leibniz action figure I linked to a few days ago? Apparently, this guy did all the major philosophers up to Quine (though I must admit, the last one on that list I’ve ever heard of was Wittgenstein).
OH MY GOD these are funny if you know anything about the philosophers.
Favorites: St. Anselm, Descartes (with laser vision and clear and distinct punching action!), Leibniz (of course), and Berkeley.

 

 

Seriously, April must be “find really awesome crap on the internet” month.

This may very well get linked to on Facebook, I’m not sure yet. But I’m pretty sure I’m going to print them out and stick them all over my door.

Yeah, it’s these little things that make life worth living.

“A barrel-chested action figure with an enormous wig is objectively funny.”
