Jeff R.: Another Great Debate

"My grandma had that."


"You know, the prevaricate veins. Her legs were, like, completely blue."

"I don't think that's right."

"Oh wait, I remember. It's from English class, isn't it? The parts of a sentence are the subject, the denominator, and the prevaricate."

"No, I think it's some new drug, you know, with a big list of possible side effects like bleeding out the eyes and sudden death."

"So what's it for?"

"I don't know. Constipation, maybe. Or possibly cramps."

"Oh. Either way, I should get some for Sue. You're sure that's what it is?"

"Hey, would I lie?"

David: Angry Science

“Who thought up this stupid topic anyway?” The voice flew trough the library, chased by the muffled giggles of otherwise industrious students.

“Hush,” carried a stage whisper after it. “You’re going to get us thrown out again.”

“So what? It’s a stupid paper for a stupid class with a stupid teacher.”

“If you’re having trouble, maybe I could help.”

“I’ve read every book in the psychology section already. There’s nothing here about the effects of inappropriate social behavior on uninvolved observers in a pseudo-restrained environment. It’s not like I’m going to do original research and present findings to the professor.”
