People, when you give a presentation do not, repeat not, read from a script. Just don't.
You're only going to bore your audience to death and if there's an interpreter translating your talk he or she will want to knock your teeth out. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

@gromit @Aquarelle maybe you should wear bigger headphones
"Welp, I gave them the material and they all failed the final exam. This happens every semester in my class. The only logical reason is that every single student is just incompetent. I tried." *dusts hands*
Also, a rant: I have six final exams over material that I learned over three years ago, combined as one preliminary exam that's supposed to determine whether I should enter into my Ph.D. program, despite having been in it for about.. three years.
After that prelim, I get to take the qualification exam that determines whether I'm ready to pursue Ph.D.-level research.. despite my dissertation being about 75% complete.
Gotta love administrative procedures.

I don't care about this storm/hurricane. The more people bitch at me about it, the less I care. It's not the way to get me to think evacuating is a good idea. It's not the way to get me to think leaving my home to go be potentially stuck somewhere else without any of my things for however long is a good idea. It's also not a good fucking selling point with the vibe of "Im going to bitch at you to make you come with me to the point where you want to deck me in the fucking face... oh but you have to spend your storm blackouts and floods and isolation with me". NO.
& How is it a good idea to take my Dad, who recently had a heart attack, about 2 hours from our home to be stuck somewhere else with bad conditions? Because to me that still isn't the best of ideas.
& bitching at me the second I wake up? Go fuck yourself.
I hope you're safe if you do leave, but go fuck yourself regarding harshing my morning mellow after I drank all night.Hang on traveling woman - Don't sacrifice your plan

There is this thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked - It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance

Sorry, bro, but manipulation tactics don't work very well on a fellow manipulator.
Also: where the fuck is your moral compass?

Also, when you ask a question, you get an answer. Sorry, bro, but the "Maybe you didn't hear me right..." tactic isn't gonna change that answer. In this case, it just reinforces it.

I hate people who insist on talking on their cell-phones in the library. And if I can still hear the other person through headphones, then you're definitely need to take the conversation outside.
