Hey everyone! I finally have my computer problems solved, which was a gigantic pain. Whatever, I have bent technology to my will, and while doing so have amassed a fair number of ideas for 2009. I apologize for the infrequent and inconsistent posts, but TWWoT is back on track, and I will start updating again in the new year.

On that topic, I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read my stupid little blog, to include my heckler. I appreciate that you all seem to enjoy reading something that I enjoy doing, which largely consists of me trying to be funny. Or, as my heckler suggests, posting Neatorama posts. Whatever the case is, I wish you all a happy New Year and a belated Merry Christmas.

Classroom Prank

This little video, taken from Neatorama, is an example of a classroom interruption that sparkles with class and zazz.

This is much different than my college classroom interruptions, many of which Randy The Funkee Homosapien was witness too. Notably, I am reminded of my behavior during a little activity that we took part in during our History Methods class.

The instructor set us up so that we were competing countries on the brink of war, gave us some information, and then set us up in different rounds of negotiation. I quickly established an alliance with a neighboring country, and then threatened genocide on the remaining countries, barred diplomatic access (and contemplated taking one of them hostage), and gave a presidential address to the assembled class in which I threatened to "drive our enemies before us while listening to the lamentations of your women". The excercise was supposed to mimic the beginnings of WWI, and I think that the hope was that we would be able to make peace. I on the other hand would have launched a preemptive thermonuclear strike if I could have.

Luckily, I think Randy was a part of my oligarchy and thus was spared the life of a plebian.

Epic Fail, Educational System.

Technical Problems

Howdy, y'all. I am experiencing some rather craptastic techincal problems with my computer, so that is why there have been no new posts on TWWoT as of late. Hopefully, these problems will be cleared up soon, but I just wanted to let you all know whats going down...
