School -- The Good And The Bad

Real School

Tuesday was Exam 3 in my PHYS-1070 class. Next Tuesday is the Final Exam. Summer sessions -- seven and a half weeks in and out and gone. Don't blink or get sick or break up with your dog, because there isn't time.

May and June goes fast this way, but I love doing this.

Faux School

Got this e-mail today. Decided to copy it, typos and bizarre use of diacritic marks and all, rather than delete it. I did decide not to quote the header, with the Geocities e-mail address (Geocities? sn*cker) with one name in the tag and a completely different name in the e-mail address, plus the university e-mail addresses it was spammed to. Why give this idiot the business?

If this degree is non-accredited, then what benefits (beenefits?) could possibly come with it? If you are waiting for my call 24/7, then why is it going into voicemail hell and you'll get back to me in a coupla days? I want that diploma mill PhD like now!

And why would I want to deal with either someone this illiterate or a scam trying to avoid the spam filters by using tons of odd spellings? Idiots.

There -- I feel better now.
