I have the feeling Kori and Jeff are busy with school. Is that true of the rest of you?

Hey guys,

I'm Julian from New Jersey. I go to a pre-med oriented high school, and I want to be a plastic surgeon.

I first read Rand sophomore year. I'm a junior now.

Howdy, Julian. :D You have a themed high-school? How does that work? Is it private?

Great to hear, Chris. I definitely am feeling better now that it is Spring, too! I always forget how awesome flowers and fresh-cut grass are. It's the kind of weather that makes ya wanna clean out your filthy car. I mean, when I'm cruisin' with the windows down I don't want all my McD's bags flying around whappin' me in the face. :P

Hope you have a wonderful time at Cato. :)

Yesterday was good too.

Gov Sanford was very good. The question period was good too. Worth catching on-line.

Hi Kori,

Haha, I never thought of it that way. It's public, but I had to test to get in. It's pretty cool. Every year we do different dissections. We watch live surgeries via distance learning. Last year we did hospital rotations and next year we get to intern in a medical profession of our choice. Our curriculum is also more science-oriented, although we get the regular humanities classes.

This is not an endorsement of public schools though. :angel: It's definitely an improvement (I don't think I could have survived at a regular high school), but it is still frustrating at times.

That's so cool! I want to be a medical illustrator, and I'm waiting [im]patiently to learn all the proper anatomical stuff in college.
Anyway, welcome to anyone who's joined up since I was here last, enjoy your stay =)

I'll try showing up a wee bit more often. Oh, and I'm rereading Atlas Shrugged, for the record.

Dunno why you're asking Kori, dear, since I'm the one with the quotes. :P Anyway, he's a stand up comedian, not as famous as he used to be. His brand of humor was...strange. He would deliver his jokes with minimal expression and just run straight through his ludicrous lines without pausing for laughter or anything. Quite something. ;)

Sorry Inky about the mix-up. On Steve Wright I don't think I ever saw him. Don't forget the old quote "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard."

Chris and his teenage home boy group:

Here's some recent Steve Wright - I have always found his dry insanity hilarious:

Here are a plethora of his one lined insanity.

Some of his one liners you will be thinking about for days, like: "I was born by Caesarian section...but not so you'd notice. It's just that when
I leave a house, I go out through the window." -- Steven Wright

Which reminds me of the test tube baby who had a womb with a view.
