There isn't a first-ten run of '60's Marvel I don't have.
I am a crusty old bitch.

I am suitably impressed.
I'm 32, can I post here?
I'm 22, soon to be 23. So far, nothing in this thread piques my interest.
I'm teaching my first biology lab tomorrow. I don't know whether to be terrified, or terrified.
I guess either would be a bad thing. Pre-med students can smell fear.
At least the subject of the lab is some zero-stakes introductory crap.

Good luck Meta.
Wait...lee...we're the same age, and we're both ex-Mormons? Trippy.
@Zeta: AHAHAHAHA. That is awesome.
I wish I'd mailed my older self Pogs.
@Meta: Students are meat. They fear you. You do not fear them.
Best of luck, Meta Four! You teach them good!
Yes, but they have the power of complaints.
Don't be a Stepford Smiler in class and then hate the students behind their backs, either. Too many professors are like that.
Yes! Teach them real good! Tear them open like the worms they are and show them the wonders of human anatomy!
...Wait, you're not supposed to do that?
Their parents told them they were smart. They frightened their high school teachers who were afraid of the School Board.
Now they have you, and they are in a world of shit.
You could pity them, but it would not be as much fun.
Just be fair. If they're really that new to challenges, fair is enough.
Phew,I can finally exercise my vocabulary without confusion. Most people nowadays look at you oddly when you use a word like "succinct".
I've been trying to seed the wiki with some verbiage to combat this. We have so many wonderful words; it pains me to see them fall into disuse.
Fair is enough?
Fuck that. Rips their hearts out and send them home weeping.
I am afraid such tasks are beyond my ambit. I must adjure you to go on alone.
Pre-meds are easy to break. Just show them that the world doesn't fit into tidy little boxes and watch them bites their pens in half. Pre-laws are even easier though. Mumpty-umph years ago my gaming group had a pre-med and a pre-law, a couple of comp-sci and a couple of theatre folks. Much mind-screwing ensued.
Wow, crotchety old bitches can ramble. Are we just here to be cool, but not really cool since the young'uns define what's cool and they're upstart pipsqueaks without any idea of what constitutes actual cool?
I haven't overused "cool" yet, no I have not.
The only "cool" I give a damn about is what I think is cool.
But what about Flasheart?
