birth control: evil

here’s something odd:
as i type this, i’m currently setting up a couple labs for exams (locking them down, disabling internet access, etc.) fun stuff. about an hour ago, a couple of older women came into the lab to look around a bit – proctors who will be responsible for the site. they spent some time setting up their stuff in the offices, and they asked me to help them hang up some clocks because they couldn’t reach. no problem. after i went back to doing my stuff, i watched them violently rip down a poster from the wall – one that looked pretty much like this. odd, i thought, but i figured that maybe they thought it made the clock hard to see or something.

but no. when one woman went into the other room, the other came over to me and said “don’t you hang that poster back up while she is here…”
i looked at her quizzically and she continued, “it’s offensive to some.”
i said “it is? how so?”
and she whispered between her teeth “birth control”.

who knew that ITS’s major campaign from 3 years ago was so offensive? this is the first i’ve heard of it… quite frankly, i was more offended by this poster’s depiction of pirates.

april fools sucked

this year was probably the lamest april fools day that i can recall. a quick summary of the pranks i saw on campus:

  • a snow fence spanning half the length of university ave. kinda funny, but it took sci 04 all of 10 minutes to assemble that one.
  • some cardboard, foil and rope falling off of grant hall, complete with a sign that i couldn’t read. good one guys. no idea what that was supposed to be.
  • signs around campus suggesting that the exam schedule that was released was listed in standard time rather than DST, so exams listed as 9 am were really to be held at 10. (i enjoyed that one).

and that’s about it. apparently some people were caught on the roof of the JDUC covering up the skylights in an attempt to make it dark like alfie’s inside, but that was foiled by campus security.

robin, however, didn’t let me down, with this april fool. he wins.
