The Graffiti of Ag Sci Room 106

As I mentioned on a previous blog, I’m teaching next fall. But rather than my section being held in TLC 40 like pretty much every STAT 251 class ever, I’m going to be in Ag Sci 106.

Even though my dad’s taught in there since like the dawn of time, I’ve never actually been in there. So that’s what I did today.



These chairs look like they’re from a different era.


As I was walking around on the stage in front, I noticed that while most of the desks had writing/graffiti on them…


…Some of them had super intricate designs that were really quite impressive. Check it:






I didn’t find any graffiti about my dad (he’s been teaching in that room since the ‘80s), but I didn’t really look, either.

Blog 493: in which an ordered list of three items is presented in a clear, concise form

Ha! Three things of interest today.


Number 1: Involving what was written on the chalkboard in the Ag Sci computer lab
Holy crap, who knew things about god scrawled on a chalkboard in the Ag Sci computer lab could make my day?
Let me explain. So I go to the Ag Sci computer lab today (let the madness begin again!) to finish my psychology paper. I get in there and see scrawled on the chalkboard this big long bible verse from the Book of John about how god is merciful and how everyone should trust and believe in him and such. But the best part was what someone wrote on top of it in big, bold letters: “GOD IS DEAD ~Nietzsche.”
I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I mean really—it’s funny because, well, it’s funny, but it’s also bad because it shows a disrespecting of others’ viewpoints. Yeah, we all know religion has no place in schools, but who listens to that? Certainly not Republican Idahoans who major in agricultural science.
I’m making broad, sweeping generalizations now.
I really should stop that.


Number 2: Involving my philosophy teacher
I finally figured out who he looks like. He looks just like my friend Sean. Just like him. It’s really freaky weird. He’s Sean with short hair and a few inches taller. I’m frightened.


Number 3: Involving George W. Bush
Here’s a dilemma…(DO NOT read the end until you get there…it’s worth it, trust me)
With all your honor and dignity, what would you do?  Please don’t answer without giving it serious thought.  By giving an honest answer you will be able to test where you stand morally.
The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you will have to make a decision one way or the other.  Please scroll down slowly and consider each line- this is important for the test to work accurately.
You’re in Florida… in Miami, to be exact. There is great chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods. There are huge masses of  water all over you. You are a news photographer and you are in the middle of this great disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.  You’re trying to shoot very impressive photos. There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into the water. Nature is showing all its destructive power.
Suddenly you see a man in the water, fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar.
Suddenly you know who it is — it’s George W. Bush!
At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him away, forever.  You have two options. You can save him or you can take the best photo of your life. So you can save the life of George W. Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer prize winning photo, a unique photo displaying the death of one of the world’s most powerful men.
And here’s the question (please give an honest answer):





Would you select color film, or rather go with the simplicity of classic black and white?






Hahahahahaha…love it!
