You're gona love this...

I actually take notes in all my classes.  I have over 100 pages of notes for like every class.  I just copy word for word what they say.  that way later when everyone finds out the truth about them, at least I can provide the evidence... ;) ;D :p

Plus, MAC doesn't really come up with good games.  I wish they had internet in the classrooms...that would be incredible. 
If they didn't, my GPA would be incredible....

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!  I almost fell out of my chair. 

Believe me, you fill the space with something else.  My GPA is not stupendous either. 

We all know GiC's intellectual prowess, so his concerns were rather...different...lol.

What is this talk about having the internet in the college classroom? ???  When I was in college some *cough*-teen years ago, we had no stinking internet!  And we got through just fine.  Internet in the classroom... ::)  Is outrage! ;)

You also walked up hill, both ways, barefoot, in your parents pajamas, in a blizzard....

Nice save.  I believe the formula is: 

"when I was your age" + walking barefoot + some kind of steep incline* + both directions + outrageous distance + inclement weather of your choice + location of choice**

*  Preferably hill or mountain
** usually church or school, usually having to do with where you DON'T want to go

If I missed something let me know.

When I've heard it, it usually goes:

"when I was your age" + location of choice** + outrageous distance + some kind of steep incline* + inclement weather of your choice + both directions + walking barefoot

In my experience the location was usually the place you did NOT want to go.  Like school, church, etc.  Walking barefoot also was usually one of the first points, just to make you feel bad at the outset.

"School? You don't know how lucky you have it!  In my day, we had to walk to school 15 miles, uphill, in the snow, both ways, and barefoot!"

When my dad was in university, the Uni only had one computer, named Gandalf, big as a room, and when Gandalf started flashing red lights, you saved your stuff!

When I was in Uni we only had one computer, and it didn't have lights, unless you added them to the abacus yourself! ;)

Life was so hard...

{voice in background - "How hard was it?"}

It was so hard, we worked all day in the desert sun with no water.  We had so little water, all the camels went from being "outies" to "innies"!

What's all this fancy talk about abacuses? When I was at uni, located in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, I'd have to run faster than the sabre toothed tigers could chase me, uphill both ways so that my tracks would mislead them, over rock hard ice that would cut my reed sandals to ribbons, just so that I could count with sticks.

And I was grateful to get to count with sticks, because they were much lighter than rocks that others had to count with!

Wouldn't the proper plural form of abacus be abaci??

You did read that he was at uni in Eastern KY, right?  That should explain everything ;)

You know after the 100000 posts a page change..I havn't even payed attention the page count on this thread...
Under the old system we would have been inching towards page 300; but the switch from 15/page to 45/page has reduced our page count by 2/3.

Where Iron hydrochloride ruins watersheds
When I started college there was one computer lab for the university.  It closed at 10:30 each night.
I remember the one kid in my hall had his own computer.  I had a cell phone back then though :)
But now that university gives a laptop to each in-coming frosh.  And what's this about wi-fi?
I remember I was in a terrible car-accident and was out of university for a year.  I came back and everyone had cell phones and computers.  It was an overnight revolution.

Lucky guy.  When I hurt myself, they used to give us splints made of solid granite - even for a minor scrape!  There were no paper cuts then - no papyrus had been discovered yet.  Fr Chris could tell you about it - I think that's around when he retired! ;) :p

You remember; the days when writing a 15-page paper took 6 weeks because each sentence took a few hours with that darned chisel!

Remember when you had to use your own blood one time to write on that confounded papyrus?  We had to leech you for days! 
Don't remind me!  And that time that you had a non-cancer tumor and we had to stab you with red-hot pokers over and over again...
