in the middle of an epic battle where i'm trying to convince this guy that books, and therefore the institution of education, is important:

guy: like all those people that thought the nazi shouldve been shot for burning books, they are nothing but paper

me: i think you're confusing the work "book" and "jew"

sadly, i believe the comment went right over his head.

Current Mood:
busy busy
Current Music:
mindless self indulgence: two hookers and an eight ball

Wait till you get a real job... then you'll have even less time to read. Of course you're not planning on having rugrats so that should help elimate one of the biggest time hogs known to mankind. Hmmm... that's kind of interesting... kids cause a decrease in reading which leads to people becoming less intelligent, thus kids make you dumb.

no they burnt all the books because hitler didn't want the germans to read books and get any ideas about being smarter than he was.

And the ultimate irony is that he proved your point. If he'd opened a book, he'd have gotten the joke! hah!

(Well, I thought it was funny.)

oh no... the ultimate irony is a few days ago he was arguing physics theory with a physics grad student and was telling the student that he was wrong because he "had read a bunch of stephen hawkens" books and so he must be right.

I would've asked if Stephen was any relation to Jim. But he'd not've gotten that, either, I'm sure.

Your family is German? Ah buggeration!

As my families Polish they would never let us be together! Just think of the fight at the wedding!

P.S. Kidding! :O)

I'm such a mongrel I swear my mother was working at a sperm bank when there was an explosion and she got hit by flying product.

Still Norwegian is good. Although they talk funny. Ask a Norweigan to say "I'm so depressed" and it sounds like they want to burst into laughter with glee.
