So, I can give you some stories about uni/student teaching, or stories about my teenage years.  You decide.

Let's make it: stories about uni

...unless there are better stories from the other options, of course.

I'd just like to say that I hope the quotes that you included in your Post (above) were actually from Consis.


They were.  He himself has vouched for them in the little thread he created over @ the VW.  

I have no need to lie about this one, or anyone for that matter when it comes to quoting.  The proper way to bastardize a quote is to quote with the few relatively minor changes(or major ones should it suit your fancy) and announce 'fixed' afterwards.  I don't make the rules but I will adhere to them.

Suit your fancy?  Christ, I need to get out of the Victorian Age in my English Lit.

OK this was hard... not too many interesting stories there.

One day I remember though, was in my first year at uni, in a sociology lecture.  We were in a big lecture theatre {200 people}, and probably the most amusing and coolest lecturer was speaking - his areas of specialty are youth subcultures and sexual differentiate psychology, so they are always interesting...  

Anyway, BANG! The doors of the lecture theatre opens and 3 guys streak - butt naked down the stairs, running past him, and then back up the stairs on the other side - yodelling all the way!  The lecturer laughed, and said they were in their final year and doing it as payback for something.  The lecture was being recorded so it was captured on tape too

Here is a still of it:

edit: No pictures of naked men on HC thankyou

My friends and I vowed that day that we would continue the tradition, and streak through a first year lecture in only g-strings.  

...we haven't done it yet - I must get on to them before I get too much older

My question was for TnT:
If you were to design a plush toy for the love of your life, what would it look like and why?

However as Pandora asked him nearly the exact same question in another thread {and he has neglected this one} I will ask a different question to:

Question for me?  


Hmm, 20 years is a long time.  Location-wise, I'd like to be somewhere warm.  I've never really liked the cold, so I'm definitely getting out of Michigan.  I think an ideal location would be Cali or Seattle.  Job-wise, I'd like to be somewhat high up so I can order people around.    Who doesn't, right?    But in all honesty, I really can't say, because I know somewhere down the line, there's going to be some sort of conflict of interest between family and career.  I'm not going to limit myself just yet.


Question for Dingo

I've been out and about, doing lots of stuff.  
After I left, we had a phenomenal snow season, so I took advantage of that.  Also I became quite busy with school, so alot of my time dried up.  

I didn't visit HC because I had no reason to.  Hope that answers the question.


Question to Kookastar:  You didn't answer Antipaladin's question.  Unfortunately I'm unable to decipher it, hope you have more luck.

So there I was happy and contented to be a loveless WoW addict for the next few years.  I was the raid leader for the guild and gosh we were going places.  Well, that little slice of paradise got messed up when I finally met the heal leader and...*ugh*.  I became dissatisfied with WoW very shortly afterwards.  

My best friend from childhood had business in town.  His mother was sick and as we found out later, terminally ill with cancer.  He brought his wife in tow with him and the two of them were going to be staying at a hotel in downtown Chicago.

Now his wife's aunt is the gal we all know and love as Violent_Flower.  She came up to see her niece(my friend's wife) especially as it had been years since they had gotten to visit with each other.  She too was staying at said hotel.

So it was on a fateful St. Patrick's day that we all got together.  I was given V_F's cell # as a contact number.  The first thing I remarked to my buddy Shamori after I spoke to her(she answered it before she passed it to my friend) was how hot she sounded.

My buddy wanted to see some of his friends that night.  I volunteered to chauffeur them around.  But I wanted for some reason to make a good impression on this stranger.  Mind you I'd never seen her nor had I even ever heard of her.  She barked at my buddy for me to pick them up at 8.  I told them it was impossible.  I had to shower.  She insisted on 8.  I told my buddy to tell her to pack sand.  Bastard didn't quote me though.

So I pick them up before 8:30.  She was the first one strutting down the dimly lit street wearing jeans and a hot little top.  Her hair was medium length and it was pulled back.  And man she eclipsed my imagination.  She was stunning.  You see, my friend's wife is trashy and ever since her mom came onto me I've tuned her out everytime she'd tell me that I needed to meet so-and-so and how much I'd like them.

So she's just locked her eyes onto me from 50 yards and never peels away.  She walked straight up to me, stuck out her hand, made her introductions, and then proceeded to tell me how late I was.  

We all piled into the car and she started whining about wanting some clove cigarettes.  "Dave!"  she'd shriek.  "I want some cloves.  You said we could get some cloves!  I want them now!"

I stared at him in disbelief when he muttered, "uh, yeah dude.  We've got to get some cloves."

I tried opening up my Vulcan mind meld telepathy channels to tell him where she could shove them if she didn't stop screeching.    But he and I have been so disconnected ever since I went into the service I wasn't getting through to him.

We couldn't find cloves.  Dave convinced her that Dunhills would be a good substitute.  Silly girl believed him.  That settled we carried on to our next destination.

So we're at another buddy of mine's place.  Friends are already gathered there and there's a scarcity of seats.  I go to sit down and V_F stops me, turns me around, and grabs my seat!  Funny thing was, she totally initiated that contact and she really wanted me to sit next to her.  I got that.  But I wasn't the type to show such displays of affection in front of my buddies.  If she wanted the seat, she could have it.  If she wanted me, she was just gonna have to wait.

We went to a bar of my choosing.  On the walk there I'm noticing she's just a smidgeon ahead of my stepping.  That was no coincidence.  As a competitive walker when it comes to whose in front I knew what she was up to and remarked on it.  She came clean and we laughed about it.  I was starting to think this was a female version of me.

So we get to the bar.  She hates it.  They don't serve I dunno, pitchers of Bud Light.  There's one pool table that was obviously bigger than what she was used to playing.  The place was packed and she wanted to go out and do something.  Note that this didn't come out until she had grabbed my cell phone, called my estranged wife, and left a message telling her how inadequate she was, how she was taking care of me, and how she was doing all sorts of nasty things with me.  My friends all cheered for her.  None of them liked my wife.  Actually they've long been generous with the 'b' and 'c' word in regards to her.

Next stop was a strip club(not her idea but certainly one she reinforced).  She was sitting behind me while I was driving the lot of us.  I couldn't believe it but she actually stuck her bare foot onto my lap while I was driving.  Wtf?!  God doesn't make women like this.  Not skipping a beat I started massaging it and getting acquainted with the way her skin felt.  Whoo-hoo!  Score!  Man was this going to be easy!

We get to the strip club and just chill and talk to each other while hotties with their boobies hanging out are gyrating all over the place.  We took turns buying shots from the shot girl.  My buddy's wife I think saw the rapport we were having and invited me back to the hotel.  The deal was sealed baby!  

Get to the hotel.  There's one bed and a sofa.  V_F fell on the sofa before Tay reminded her there was a pullout bed.  We pulled it out.  She climbed in on her side facing away from me.  I joined her but drew a line of demarcation down the middle.  I told her that was her side and this was my side.  And then I noticed the road rash scar on the back of her shoulder.  I thought it was unbelieveably sexy and kissed it lightly, nuzzled her and let her grab my hand.  She held it close to her bosom while we drifted off to sleep.

Freaking woman.  I sleep next to her the first night I meet her and she makes me wait over a month to kiss her.

That's how I met Violent_Flower.

My next question goes to...

Aculias.

Are you finally over Mandy and if so, when were you able to make that honest determination?

Oh how sweet and so completely off of you. Ok lets get the real story from VF herself. Some of what he spewed out was sorrta correct but let me give you the VF version instead of the BS version.

I could not wait to go see my niece as we had not seen each other forever and this, despite her husband’s sick mother, was going to be stellar. I arrive in Chicago to only be blessed with this over priced downtown hotel that I was going to be paying half of. This place not only in lacked of the common courtesy of working dresser drawers but had less than a desirable price tag, 150.00 a night. I met up with Tayandy and her snowy man snow husband Dave shortly after my four-hour trip.

We concede that we have no clue what we will be doing that night and they reassured me that their best buddy Logan (AKA Gootch) would be our taxicab for the night. So my phone was being used as the go between for Dave and Logan as this big time city boy did not even have a cell phone. I remember answering the cell with a bit of giddiness, “Hello? Oh sure here he is.” This was all it took for me to know that the man on the other side of that mouth piece was hot as hell. This deep, sexy, but not over played voice that he had, what a player.

Dave was on the phone with this chump and I specifically stated that he arrive at 8:00 P.M. and not a minute later as I was ready to jet. I did not feel that request needed anymore follow through than that. Dave gave me the impression that procrastinator boy was going to be on time. Pacing the apartment of Dave’s crazy family became par for the coarse over the next half hour as Logan decided to just show up whenever. I thought to myself while strutting down the hallway to meet him, “ I wonder if his car will have heated seats and a moon roof?” I stopped myself in my tracks at the sight of him standing next to what seemed to be the shadow of a (long drawn out, refusing to acknowledge the truth, pause) hoopdy, faded red, and rusty old 1903 Mazda.

I totally wanted shotgun at this point, no not because I thought he would slip a leg rub or anything, but because this sad idea of an impressive first date he was driving was on it’s last wheel well. Gentlemen do not escort Tay and me to the back seat; we are practically shoved in the back with pitchforks and worn soles of their shoes. These two guys were so focused on one another that Tay and I thought we were at a reunion of All in the Family; Archie and Meathead gathering for the first time in years, giving each other that bantering eye.

After asking politely several times for some cloves he finally, by the grace of who the hell watches over us, makes it to this ghetto mini mart where I was talked into a cheap version of my clove cigs. After leaving the store my common knowledge of working vehicles lead me to attempt to get in to someone else’s car. We both laughed as if we were sharing a moment but I really wanted to leave in the other car.

We arrived at the Ten Cat in down town to pile on some drinks and play some pool. The problem with this place was not that they did not serve “pitchers of Bud, (which I don’t drink, it’s Coors thank you) it was the lack of hot guys sitting next to me. He practically throws me out of the way to sit down next to Meathead. A few drinks later the ex-wife receives a phone call to let her know that I was taking over her job description ASAP. So after listening to Shamari bless me with his tales of tongue wrestling he would like to do with me and Johns stories about his WHOLE LIFE, it was time to move on.

We headed to the strip club where we got a bit cozier and booby shots didn’t hurt much to break the ice.  We get back in the car and off to the “ Your *** hurts when ya leave” hotel, I had been screwed by this place enough to satisfy a snow on nickel night.I felt as though his hands were missing something, so I took my shoes off and flopped my foot right in his lap. Wow this guy has an amazing set of hands on him. I knew that he would be staying the night, although I thought that he would be sleeping with Meathead, not me. I glanced at him from across the room with those come hither eyes that say, “ Yo, *****, come here and get this pulled out for me!” We lovingly pulled our nest out together and crawled in.

He throws this blanket down as some retaining wall that I’m not suppose to cross, as if I’m on the sex offenders list and he is worried about his precious bod. After fighting sleep I rolled over and tried to close my eyes. I wasn’t turned over very long before this soft strong hand touched my shoulder and then followed were these soft lips, lips that belonged to the man I wrote about years ago. He kissed my scar and rubbed my shoulder so gently that I just melted in goose bumps. I slowly grabbed his hand and pulled it close to me and that is how he slept the rest of the night.

I have been in awe ever since…..

Well yes I was.
Surprisingly I was ove her the next day.
Usually it takes alot longer then that but I was blindly in love so to speak.
The thing was that people from the internet to my own household told me she was bad news.
Just like the Beatles song.

Lennon/Mcartney "Shes got the Devil in her heart.
Harrison "No no no this I cant believe.
Lennon/Mcartney "shes gonna tear your heart apart.
Harrison "No no Nay will she decieve.

I heard many stuff before she came out & after she came out.
Disturbing stuff & lies to boot.
I didnt want to believe them.
I also wanted to be the man to change the way she was.
I loved her enough that I did anything for her.
Money or love was never an issue.
I even bought a plane ticket for he friend to come out.
She would not feel comfortable in a month living in a new state.
I tried everything that I could.
Flew him out regardless of the rumours because i believed Amanda.
He was like a brother to her & they knew each other since they were born.
Rumours I heard was she was with him all this time like a few months before she came out here.
WHen he came out, that day was hell until the day they both got the boot.
I remember because it was on my birthday Sept 28th.
Disrespectful.
Fighting, yelling words flying out.
ALmost got into a fight but AManda was siding with him & threw the ashtray out of my hand.
I was like WTF.
She held him back also.
Tired from work I said FU to him & went to bed.
I needed a plan fast.
I was already talking to my brother & freinds, They knew something was wrong from my haggard tired older look.

I finally told them after hiding it & they were on a ramepage.
SOme friends wanted to kick thier butts but i told them no, I will handle it my way.
Next day I believe Oct 3rd or so I was having enough.
After work I told my brother & partner to wait outside.
If we start fighting or throwing words. Yall come in to block  AManda from making it a 2 on one fight.
Sure enough David ran his mouth loud enough to piss them off to come in to shut his mouth quick, then they listened to what I had to say.
I told them to leave & come back later to see what I decided.
Thats when I started to get phonecalls from my friends.
They told me they are out tonight or they are coming over.
Most female friends & not ones to mess with.
They know how tough it is for me to kick anyone out.
Well my partner told me to pack all thier stuff & put it outside.
They came back & got it.
Amanda knocked on the door & asked one more time if this is what I wanted & I said yes.

The next day after work Amandas sister told me everything.
Everything that was rumours at first was all true.
The puzzles were easy to decipher.
She took all my pics down when David came out & put all of his up.
Not to mention I forgot to mention it earliar which made me get white hairs.
The day before David came out, she broke up with me., but she wanted to stay with me still in my apartment while he is on his way.
Even though they swear they are not together, I heard them having sex the same night he came out.
I didnt know how to kick them out the night after.
\I slept on the couch while they had my room.
My apartment & I didnt know how to do it.
My first place by myself & I was too nice to tell them.
My brother & friends had to tell me to do it or else they were done.
That day they left, they lived in the shelter & David treated her like crap & hitting on her as what she said but you cant take her word for it.

Yes the next day I heard it all.
Her cheating, her exploiting the whole plsn from the start to divorce her hubby & to get with me to use us for money & a place to stay for free.
Lying to me & Gangrail both.
So much more details i dont want to get into but after that day I despised her.After hearing the truth that I so badly did not want to believe.
She even talks to me once in a few months about how shes got it good.
Brags & likes to have a hugh head.
Her head is so big, even Zepplin seems like a whoopie Cushion

It was one of the many hard parts in my life.
Like in life you experience bumps on the roads.
It happens to everyone. You just find the ways to deal with it.

Let me think about the Question in a sec. I am actually talking to Gangrail right now lol.

1. Tell me what would you like HC to do to make it better.
I'd like subforums...

2. I mean what changes would you like HC to make to make it a funner place.
um...  
Make it mandatory for everyone with 4 or more red stars to post at least 10 times a week, or they lose them

3.Name the qualities that you dont like about HC 7 name the qualities you do like in HC.
like
When there is a sense of friendly community - people all interacting and laughing together - or creating interesting things.

don't like
The constant banter about something being wrong with HC and we need to fix it - instead of just making interesting threads and posting funny/interesting replies to others.  Less talk more action

4. I mean what do you think HC should bring & what should it lose.
You can even mention about meeting more people from HC.
We all know you want to meet The Gootchy .

It needs to lose the kiddie pack noob bashing, and bring back people making an effort... I can't talk though - I'm in a slump myself atm...

Uummm... Eventhough I have no idea what does this have to do with telling the truth, I'll try to answer it as I see it

The meaning of life is life, and not a meaning

There are soooooooooooo many meaningful things in our lives happening everyday that we do not usually even notice, like...

You know when you're at a family dinner and you want to pour yourself some coke but then all the others reach their glasses out to you so you would pour them some too.

You know when you have those times when you need to go to the bathroom but you end up in the kitchen, hang around there like a zombie trying to remember what was that that you wanted then realizing that your destination was the bathroom, you go there and forget everything. Then all bummed out you go back to the living room, turn on the TV, get all comfy like and THEN remember that thing that you had to do but forgot and now you're to comfortable to go and do it.

You know when you are talking to someone very uninteresting you find yourself replying only with "Uhuh, yeah..." Then after like 20 of those you think that he'll get the idea that he's boring and you start to feel uncomfortable so you reply with "No kidding..." and "That's interesting..."

Question to Vlaad

How do you usually punish your students and do they still like you after you do?

Question to Vlaad

How do you usually punish your students and do they still like you after you do?
I usually bend the student over my knees and pull up the skirt. My toy collection consists of different canes, a martinet, a ruler, a hairbrush, a pointer, a tawse and a whip. These are better than the bare hand because the first stroke has to sound like a gunshot in the silent classroom.

Seriously though, the answer is boring. Students tend to like young teachers so we get along well (as long as they don't cross the line). I raise my voice only when I lose my temper, but one glance or word is usually enough. Truth be told, it's often teacher's mistake; kids misbehave only if they are bored. I'm not supposed to entertain them, but a good lesson plan is a must.

However... Since this is "Tell the Truth..." thread, I admit I had a hard time a few months ago. So here's the story as I told it to kooka. I must warn you there is no punchline though.

It started with the "teacher burnout" in late 2006. It got worse when my best student answered the cell phone in class, thinking I wouldn't hear it. I felt it was the last straw...! So when the last day of the half-term finally came, I was glad everything went well. I was looking forward to the winter holiday.

One more school quiz and I'd have my break. His team was losing, so the boy was complaining loudly. I smiled: "Yeah, right, it's a conspiracy against you - me, your headteacher, free masons..." He looked at me, stood up, said "**** OFF!" and slammed the door behind his back. I did my best to stay calm: "Rrright. Let's wrap this up..."

It didn't seem so horrible then. The boy was very aggressive before (yelling at his teachers and kicking things in the classroom). He had been seeing the psychiatrist for some time. In addition, I am aware I shouldn't have been sarcastic. Had he just left the competition, I would be apologizing to him now. This way his reaction was way off and he got punished by the principal... But that's not the problem.

The thing is I'm usually friendly and kind with my students. I admit my sense of humor is sometimes not appropriate for the classroom, and it's something I'll have to work on. On the other hand, I can tell the boy thought I was OK and knew I didn't hate him or anything.

So, what happened when we got back to school...? I couldn't help thinking about the humiliation but decided to take kooka's advice. I didn't push him away and indeed he became hard-working and polite.

To cut the crap, this is the worst thing that happened to me in my five years' career - and I did nothing.


Hm... Shouldn't this topic be about sex and stuff? Soooo, kooka, we have already heard an interesting story from the uni... Now tell us about your wild teens! The beach, surf, kangaroos...

Welll

I did spend some time with friends laughing around beachside bonfires under the moonlight - secluded walks beneath boardwalks, motorcylce rides through rainforests, camping on cliffsides.  Youth, a little stupidity, alcohol, and hormones.  Pretty much the same as everyone I guess

my question is for Pandora
