things that made me laugh

the pronouncements of mark e smith such as

Degrees have a way of warping people - it's not good for people to spend that amount of time at university, acting like rock stars on weekdays. They get so distanced from the real world that they haven't a fucking clue what's needed. It's a luxurious prison, almost. Once they get out, once they're released, they're good for nothing other than having weekly reunions with their old housemates, getting jobs with their old housemates, or staying on to receive more educational therapy or forming piss-poor bands. And they've all got foppy fringes.

Sorlil said...

lol that's me - 5 years at uni and good for nothing and I'm seriously thinking about going back for more 'educational therapy'!

megapenny said...

i'm desperate to go back to uni and be in that gorgeous little bubble. nestled in the library tower and sipping peppermint tea in my spare time, which i have lots of because i'm only taking 3 classes in an 8 hour shift on campus?

that's my idea of FUN

swiss said...

depressingly i haven't been away from the tertiary educaion system for the last nine years. it hasn't made me happy! lol

Sorlil said...

aaah sipping coffe mocha for hours on end in the warm, sunny adam smith common room reading lots of theory - that's my idea of fun, sad eh?!

swiss said...

uh huh,reading the theory and thinking wow these people don't get out much do they, while listening to the adolescent ramblings of the fellow at the next tables as he crashes and burns with the girl he's with,or worse, doesn't

Sorlil said...

lol I see you've been there!

it made me laugh too. you know, you made me one moment regret not working for the unversity anymore for if i still would, i would print this on a sheet - postersize or something and hang it on my office door. in red letters!
