Classes Start, Interupting Facebook Time

Throughout Eugene and many other college towns, loud collective groans emanated from various student housing situations as classes started, thus limiting the amount of time students can spend on Facebook.

The change was expected according to the University of Oregon website, claiming the start of a “Winter Term” but many students are outraged. “With Spanish, Business 102, Mass Media and Communication how am I going to be able to spend 80 hours a week on Facebook,” stated one University of Oregon freshman. Another student, Robby, stated “I actually had to log out and go to class this morning.” He sounded incredibly distraught.

While some students are still using Facebook, many are having a hard time balancing school, Facebook, and video games. One University student claimed, “This University thing would be awesome if I didn’t have class. I hang out with my friends via Facebook and rock Call of Duty with my friends. With these classes now I have to choose to devote my free time to either Facebook or video games.”

Not all students are concerned. One Junior confessed that he actually has more time because he brings his computer to class to “take notes” but really spends his time on facebook. “Normally I spend my free time hiking mountains or biking, but class restricts me to a chair for an extended period of time. It is a perfect place to catch up on the bomber trails my friends are hitting.”

University officials declined to comment on the situation, but chances are they would talk about how athletes had been low on Facebook time all break while preparing for the Rose Bowl. Now the athletes get some time to catch up on their friends while everyone else is studying for classes.

Many of these classes are taught by so-called professors one of which stated, “School is here to learn things, and a lot of that learning is done in classes. Other learning happens because people have to go to class. Either way, class is an important part of school. I understand these students complaints about their Facebook time, but they should really get over it.” This has received a lot of agreement from other professors and even some students, some of which have said, “I don’t even have a Facebook.”

These changes are not permanent and classes are expected to end in about 10 weeks. There is a rumor that another set of classes may resume shortly after, but the students will worry about that when it comes. Many students are patiently waiting for classes to end so that Facebook time will resume, and very few violent protests are expected to occur.

Carnegie to Morgan-You Look Like a Seal

Morgan, this is Andrew your friend and coorperate counterpart.

For as long as I have known you, and gracious me it has been for some many years now, you have always had a healthy appitie for good food, good whiskey, and beautiful young women. And for years you have paid for the best chefs, dined in the finist resturanunts, and shinffed at the best whiskeys around-yet for all your money and influence you have never been able to land that hot young bitty you have always longed for.

Until recently I have been totally stumped as to your problem at getting girls. JP and I have never had a problem rustling up some breezies, and even though Vanderbelt is catching for the other team (and I do mean cathching) he still has women throw themselves at him constantly. He has to litterally beat them off with a broom!

But like I said it was until recently that I had been stumped by what was keeping women away from you, but now that I know it I wonder why I never thought of it before. Maybe you know it? Maybe you looked in the mirror one day after reading a National Geographic about elaphent seals and where like “Oh shit, they look like me!” Well if you havent dont that you should take the time to do so becuse that ol’ boy is your problem-you look like an adult male elephant seal.

No, your saying, that’s ridiculous! Im very handsome, and I have a great personality. If your thinking that JP your an idiot, look at the pictures I sent you. Look at the similarities in both phenotype and in personality there are between you and the adult elephant seal. Look at the noses on the two of you-all bulbouse. Your nearly 2/3 nose JP, you’ve had to had notice that. Fucking look at the eyes JP. Both you and the seal display nothing but hostility and an egarness to dominate in your eyes. There is nothing playful, fun, emotional, kind, or really anything in those eyes that a women (or kind hearted sailor man) would find desierable. Your an evil, compeditive, and snide individual JP and Im not sure anyone can ever love you.

But if you want to lose that flower of yours, I suggest changing your personality or something. You have all the money and the power to make you very attractive to anyone, but you look like and act like an adult male elephant seal and even with all the money in the world no one if going to want to hit that.

Cheers,

AC

Knight at the Musee

the-dark-knight-1This week the louvre announced that it will be displaying The Dark Knight as possibly a permanent installation to the museums already massive collection. The Director of the Musée du Louvre had this to say “We put a lot of thought into it and found the movie to be quite simply a master piece.”

The movie is to be installed right next to the Mona Lisa, where it will be displayed on a large flat screen set into the wall and will loop indefinitely. Along with several choice frame stills to complete the display. Of Course this ruffled some Parisian feathers with the museums choice of hanging it next to the Mona Lisa.

“It is a disgrace to the Mona lisa,” claimed Jacques Yves, a local Parisian “No one will even look at the Mona Lisa, we might as well not even have it!” Though some are quite excited about the museums decision with a lot of chatter across the Internet. La Petite a modern French design and art blogsite had an article praising the museum for its plans to install the work, calling the exhibition “daring and well deserved.”

Many of the films cast and crew plan to attend the opening of the exhibit, which is set for late February. Batman himself, Christian Bale, will be there along with the 1960s Batman, Adam West, who stated he is happy to be finally known for something other then Family Guy. Other Hollywood stars will be in attendance including Ben Stiller, who forced himself onto the guest list claiming that he needs to be there to protect everyone.

Trilobite Reports: Evolution Going Great

According to a Trilobite interviewed by the Onion, evolution is going great. The trilobite stated that, “It’s a wonderful time to be alive,” and “Sulfurous gas seems to be bubbling up to the surface pretty good, and several single-cell organisms appear to be mutating at a rather steady pace. Also, just today, I developed the ability to roll into a small protective shell in order to avoid predators.”

This is great, because it means that soon giant reptiles will be roaming the world and before too long little furry mammals will be running around. Soon enough primates will show up and procede to try and destroy the world. All in all, enough excitement for a planetary lifetime!

From The Onion

In all seriousness, this article is great because it presents solid scientific evidence in a nearly accurate manner. I solidly approve of the Onion’s work on this one.

Missed Connections from History

It is always interesting to look back onto the past and see connections to our present time. Recently at the University of Cairo in Egypt a team of Anthropologists found a tablet in some foothills which allegedly carried a conversation between then Queen of Egypt Cleopatra and Cesar of the Roman Empire Julius. Though the researchers are not certain that the conversation on the tablet is between the famous couple, we hear at Cleverpork Central are to impatient and arrogant to be concerned with the opinions of what can only be a group of Indian Jones worshiping virgins that make up the Anthropology department at the University of Cairo. Grow a pair. Without foresight or real understanding of the nature of the research, enjoy the worlds first missed connection:

[Translated from Stick Figures on a Stone] Me, kindly older man walking through the desert at night in full Roman combat gear. You, stunning beauty sleeping on the foot of the Sphinx. I walked you back to your palace, had an invigorating conversation about sand. I’m an aggressive man who loves challenges and would love to get to know you better, maybe talk more about sand. Shall the Sphinx be the place, next week at midnight? Cheers, JC

[The Responce] KOM, I love that you found me beautiful. I’m found of people who find me fascinating and I would love to meet up and talk more about me and my interests-like sand! If things go well, who knows-maybe Ill will even let you invade my homelands if you know what I’m saying? See you at midnight. Kisses, Cleo

Eagle Creek Trail


The Cleverpork Central crew sets out

The Cleverpork Central crew sets out

Yesterday, December 14th, Derek, Charlie, Aaron, and I went on a hike on the Eagle Creek trail in the Columbia Gorge. Below you’ll find a collection of photos that we took. It was one of the more dangerous hikes that we have taken, from falling rocks to slippery ice. There are sections where the path is narrow and it is terrifying when it is the middle of summer. They have a cable to hold on to but at the narrowest part the ice went over the cable and was the slickest part of the narrow section. During the same portion of the trail rocks and ice would occasionally fall, hitting the trail with a loud sound. If any of them had hit us we might have been hurt, but none did thanks to expert timing.

All the danger was not without reward though. The frozen waterfalls were beautiful. I hadn’t seen frozen waterfalls before and the entire canyon is lined with smaller waterfalls, all frozen. Punchbowl falls, our end-point, was not frozen but the whole river was lined with Ice. At punchbowl, there was a solid sheet we could go out and stand on while  we took pictures. We were mostly alone out there, though two groups did go past us on our way back, and being alone was wonderful. For a very frequently traveled trail, getting to travel it without passing anyone is always a nice experience.
