Shallow Thoughts of the Day

My mind is literally mush. Blame it on three day yom tov, blame it on the fact that I will be living on matzah and coffee for the next four days as those are the only kosher l'Pesach things I own, blame it on upcoming finals, heck, blame it on whatever you want, it's reality. And so, I present to you my not-so-deep thoughts of the day, because deep thoughts are on hiatus from my mind:

-If you are a guy, do not wear light pink pants. If you insist on wearing light pink pants, do not wear them with green sneakers.

-Liberation is just another form of repression. (This would be a deep Foucaultian thought, except that I'm just regurgitating, not actually understanding anything that was said in my three hour class this morning.)

-Do not throw flaming pieces of paper down an air shaft. If you do, you may get in trouble, and even if you don't get in trouble, it's just plain stupid.

-Professors should grade students based on their ability to make a cogent argument, and not on whether or not they agree with the argument. And if a prof is going to grade based on whether he likes the argument, he should at least finish reading the argument and make sure he understands it before he gives it a bad grade.

-College students complain too much. We have it pretty good. Get over yourselves and be happy! And under no circumstances should you send an angry e-mail to a student-run daily newspaper complaining that the crossword is blurry. If you have time to do a crossword puzzle, you have too much time on your hands. You should not be spending $42,000 a year on an education to do crossword puzzles instead of listening in class.

-You can have too much pink flowery stuff. Do not forget that when re-decorating your house or your kids will make fun of you forever. And pink grout is just a bad idea.

That Schwartz guy wouldn't have gotten into trouble, if he'd been celebrating Passover like he should be.

If only I could get hold of a decent kosher lePesach Coffee. (or some kosher lepesach whiskey!)

For someone studying for finals, you seem to have a lot of free time to fill the gaps! Keep them coming!
