And ya know what's even worse, man?  His first name is Jo!  Can you believe it?  I have a huge cross to bear, that I've suddenly found myself wondering what Jo Smith is up to.

You need to contact FB and demand that they make stalking easier.

Try adding a location at the end of the name, when you do a FB search.

Better yet, if you know the schools/interests/locations/etc. put all that into Google. That is saying if his profile isn't completely private.

I like that Facebook forced people into using their real names except for me.

Lol, perhaps I can give you all of the information I know, and you can find him for me.

I've just realised that this year we've had none of the usual 'Halloween is satanic!!1!' nonsense around here.

Could be because YIM has been absent...

When you go to use the washroom at the campus and find out that two guys are "busy". What do you do? Yell at them, report them to the security, or call the police?

Turn out the lights.

I didn't think of that. It was really disgusting. At that time I wished if I was deaf and blind. The sad thing is that when I told some friends, they said that such things just happen at the campus! Not big surprise!! :(  Others said that it was none of my business to report them, and that I shouldn't "judge" them!! What the heck?

Pretend nothing happened and not use the bathroom again for months. Unless they're blowing eachother en pleine public, in which case I'd probably say something along the lines of 'dudes, get a room'.

If they're out in the open just stare, making sure not to break eye contact with one of them. It keeps the eyes pure, so to speak, while being entirely unnerving to the other fellow.

So tonight, as an alternative to homework, I decided to collect statistics on Episcopal seminary professors (not including adjuncts).  Of the 85 professors with a doctoral degree (excluding those with a D.Min), 80% have their doctoral degree from a U.S. institution, with 20% coming from a foreign school.  The top three schools producing professors, which have a combined 25% of the professors, are Yale (10 profs), Chicago (6 profs), and Harvard (5 profs).  Surprisingly, only 3 of the professors with a foreign degree earned theirs in Canada.  All others (aside from 1 with a degree from an African university) earned theirs in the UK.  The most popular foreign school was the Univ. of Durham (with 3).

After thoroughly wasting my time collecting this information (and a more full break-down of the alma maters of professors at Episcopal Seminaries), I then decided to do the same for the ELCA.

It's amazing that I've now spent about twice as long on this project as my homework would have taken.

I am now deciding between doing homework and expanding my data collection to the entire mainline.  Also, perhaps, the Orthodox seminaries.

While examining Orthodox seminaries. make sure to collect data on how many seminary professors/teachers have actual parish ministry experience, and if that experience is within the jurisdiction the person is a member of.

I had actually hoped to collect that information on all of these seminaries, unfortunately I've found that details at that level tend to vary greatly from individual to individual, for some reason (that is, a break-down of their career history).  But I'll see what I can do.

I myself would find this information interesting.  How are your skills in data preparation / presentation for web viewing?

They could use some improvement.  But perhaps this would be a good opportunity to improve

So, for those who would be interested in such data, what all would you like to know about the faculty at Orthodox seminaries?

Well I've definitely intended to collect that.

Also, I just finished going through St. Herman's faculty, and it took forever.  I was forced to Google almost everyone to actually find out anything about them, and even then I failed to find much on most of them.  Also, almost all of them are adjuncts.  Many of whom are adjuncts that also teach at St. Vlad's and Holy Cross....which means they can't actually be in Alaska too often.

I have found the perfect job for you. You should become Pocahontas at Disney World. You don't have to talk much, you have long black hair, and you just need to smile and wave to children. You have at least 1/3 of the qualifications.

I was in elementary school when that movie came out and I was pretty tan at the time, so naturally a lot of kids at school were calling me Pocahontas.

You can own the earth and still, all you'll own is earth until you can paint with all the colors of the wind.

Perhaps it is exempt because it is coming from France.  The French are notoriously uncooperative.

My orders from Amazon France came with a tracking number.

I also could have paid for express shipping; but it would have been an extra 9$ that i didnt feel like spending.

I blame DHL

This reminds me of the time I ordered a scarf from the troubled area of Ukraine, and it came in two weeks... but I sent something from the East Coast to Montana and it took like two months. Ah, USPS. How I hate you.
