Run laps a lot
Pee on the garden
Leap over fences
Cock is a word for rooster
Hen is a type of chicken?
Kit kats are good
Nice chickens don't belong in the

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
~ Elbert Hubbard
Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

There's a couple (obviously made for each other), who's every other post on FB is to complain about stupid people. Maybe I should dedicate my wall to complaining about boring people who complain all of the time.▵

Oh. My. God.
This is a new one.
Student: I'm going to France for the summer, and I'm thinking about also going in the Fall. How many credits can I get done in the Fall?
Me: Have you applied for Fall?
Me: Well, the application deadline was over a month ago. At this point, it is too late to apply.
Student: Okay... is there any way around that? Since I'm already going for the Summer?
Me: No. In fact, that complicates things, because you'd need to apply for a visa before you left for summer, and there's not time left.
Student: Well, can't I expedite my visa?
Me: No, the French government does not expedite visas, and it takes at least 6 weeks to get a visa.
Student: If I could get a visa in time, could I apply for the Fall program?
Me: No. We are no longer accepting applications for the Fall.
Student: But it's going to affect my graduation date, because I have to take the rest of my language classes in the Fall.
Me: Are you graduating at the end of Fall?
Student: No, but I have to take all my major requirements in the Spring, because I transferred here and had to take intro classes this Spring, and my major requirements are only offered in the Spring.
Me: Well... you could take your two remaining language courses concurrently in the Fall. It's a bit weird, but it's doable. And that way, you wouldn't be devoting an entire semester to language when you only need 10 credits.
Student: But I'll be learning French so much better when I'm immersed in it.
Me: That may be the case, but at this point it is too late to get into the Fall program.
Student: Well, is there someone else I could talk to? Do you have a manager I could speak to?
Me: No, I have the final say in this matter.
Student: Well, that's ridiculous. Whatever. Bye.
WHAT?? You didn't plan for your graduation around transferring, study abroad, AND you didn't think to apply for the Fall program until almost 2 months after the application deadline, and you think my denying you entry is ridiculous??
YOUR LACK OF PLANNING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN EMERGENCY ON MY PART!
