Oh the joy!

I return to Nutang to bring you this news:
"Batman, Turkey — Filmaker Chris Noland is being sued by Huseyin Kalkan, mayor of a town in southeastern Turkey called Batman.
Kalkan claims Noland, in combination with film studio Warner Bros., used the city’s name without permission, and is suing for royalties from The Dark Knight.
Kalkan claims there is only one Batman in the world, and that the American film producers used the name without informing the town’s inhabitants. He will be providing evidence of the city’s history to prove Batman predates the character first seen in 1939’s DC Comic’s Detective Comics #27."
What next? Based on Batman's legal pursuits, it is likely that the small village of Intercourse, PA will be sueing everyone in the world for royalties to sex. Get your baby making in now while you can still do it for free.
And here is what I'm going to register for next quarter:
Intro to Macroeconomics
Intro to Astrobiology
Biopsychology (my favorite, since it doesn't have the word "intro" tacked onto it to make me sound noobish)
I've decided that it's really not about WHAT classes you're taking, but how badass they sound when you say them.
"Yeah, I'm taking High-Energy Astrophysics. I create stars."
Muffy over and out!
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
All hail The Muffin Man!
Maker of stars and thrower of text books!

Wow... That's kinda stupid or a really clever scheme to get money.
You're the badass Muffy!

Sometimes I miss my times at the Exobiology Branch at NASA Ames, but most of the time I am either too busy or too tired to reminisce too much, haha.

P.S.- That sounds like a terrible nerdy pick up line.

I get all the cool course titles by virtue of being a graduate student. Advanced courses have the most specific (and therefore badass) names!

If I lived in Batman, I would make the town song go like, "dunanunanunanunanuna BATMAN!"
ps- that's really the only reason I'm taking Computational Physics next semester.
pps- you mentioned your girlfriend in a previous post. Is she on nutang? Did she go to a different college?

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving (and the time around that) makes me realise how unthankful I am.
I don't know Kuri in real life, I know her from Katrina's Animanga website.

what does your room-mate do and do you leave passive-aggressive signs of your displeasure?
» ridiculosaur on 2008-11-21 01:55:34
well he has "stolen" your right to breathe freely. ;)
maybe you could get some AIRWICKS for your room or something.
and you could arrange a secret santa with him and then put deodorant into his stocking.
a friend of mine had a room-mate who had a habit of storing her yoga shorts in inappropriate places, such as in the cutlery drawer.
